About Absolutely Smart Tutoring for English, ESL, Home Schooling, Oil Painting and Drawing

hired 7 times on Thumbtack

I have enclosed part of my resume. I have been tutoring since 2004. Although my website doesn't reflect this, I have been hired by five people from Thumbtack for 2014 alone. I still retain most of my students. I absolutely love teaching and helping people become their best. I am professional, and I am serious about doing an excellent job teaching your children in order that they may become successful leaders in the community,

I taught ESL to children and adults, social studies, history, science, English language arts, art lessons painting and drawing. I have also created individualized teaching units for homeschooling.

I usually get a lot of compliments on my creativity and my patience with children. They also enjoy my sense of humor. I hope I can further assist you.
