Looking for a private tutor? You may be a parent who wants your son or daughter to improve their independent study skills and homework discipline. Perhaps your child has special needs and is behind in one subject area that requires extra attention. I bring tutoring services for elementary children individually or in small groups by appointment. I am able to drive and work in flexible neighborhood locations, including libraries, cafes or your home. I have extensive experience teaching, motivating and training as an after-school mentor for elementary and middle school students. My specialized areas are in basic mathematics through algebra/geometry, science, social studies and reading for students with learning disabilities. I also love dance, music, arts, sports and travel, which can be incorporated into our problem solving lessons and translate into a love of learning. I am committed to promoting self-efficacy and individual discipline by preparing your student with test taking techniques needed for mastering multiple choice tests. My schedule is flexible everyday after school and on weekends. Excellent references provided upon request. Rate is $40/hour.
