I am one of the most effective and personable tutors you'll ever meet! Why? It is because for over 25 years, I have studied the brain and learning, and I have taught in many settings.
I am a creative teacher who is using many ways for concepts to be understood. For example, I have sets of fraction pies, and the circles are divided evenly by different numbers of cuts. I tell stories to help kids use these fraction pies and be able to learn through the hands by picking up the pieces and rearranging them.
In general, my tutoring begins, believe it or not, with babies! I do that by training the parents on how to set up an environment conducive to optimized learning.
Did you know that during the first 2 years a baby operates mainly from the right side of the brain? I teach parents how to take advantage of that fact to help their babies develop. These are all done in 4 minutes/day with love and fun.
For preschoolers, I teach, in a very interactive way, any major subject, including STEM subjects, namely science, technology, engineering and math. My specialty here is teaching about other cultures, eating, making art, the animals there, the language, the music and the mythology. Kids love it!
For elementary through high school students, I can help in English, including reading comprehension, effective book selection and growing vocabulary as well as writing clearly for essays, papers and correspondence. I offer math tutoring, from the beginning to calculus, social studies, self-discipline, getting and staying organized, time management and more.
I also help with beginning French, Spanish and Japanese. I specialize in teaching English to speakers of other languages. I use what I've studied for over 25 years. I have the brain and the learning to make my lessons more effective. Kids learn the strategies they can apply right away in the future to improve their memory and performance.
