I enjoy teaching young children, youth, and adults, simply because I enjoy teaching, period! I realize that each individual has specific needs, challenges, and gifts, and as such needs individualized tutoring.
I am very patient and capable of breaking down things to the simplest form so that the subject matter can be understood. I find creative ways to teach, as I know that not all children learn in the same manner: some are more visual than auditory; some are more hands-on than abstract and so on. I have seen different children go through the tutoring process and successfully accomplish their goal: learning and mastering a subject with which they had difficulty in the past. I have many years of experience tutoring one on one, as well as quite a few years of teaching in the classroom, both foreign languages and English. I am committed to helping you achieve your goal, no matter what!
I was born in Italy and did all my elementary schooling in Italian. When I arrived in North America, I had to learn English and French at the same time. I continued to study both languages throughout the years that led up to my Bachelor of Arts degree, including Spanish. Along the way, I also completed American Sign Language Level IV. I have been able to keep up my Italian language, as it is my mother tongue, and still the only language I use to communicate with my mom.
Please note that if I need to travel more than 30 miles each way, I need to charge $60.00/hr because of the travel time and to cover my gas expenses.
