I have been a teacher and a coach for over ten years. I have taught grades 2, 3, 5, as well as ESOL, in both US schools and internationally. I worked for seven years at one of the top international schools in Zurich Switzerland. I also have coached basketball and volleyball at both the middle school and high school levels. I have a Master's Degree in Education from the University of Michigan and an undergraduate degree from Emory University in English.
I have just moved to San Diego and would love the chance to tutor. I have children of my own, so I have decided to take a break from the classroom, but I would love to still get to teach! I think it is important for a student to really respect and enjoy their time with their tutor if they are going to make significant improvements in their studies. I like to establish a good rapport with my students and then I push hard! Kids respond to a challenge and to a teacher who they think believes in them and their abilities.
I would love the chance to help your student with their studies! I have a fairly flexible schedule so just let me know your needs!
