I have been a private educator for many years, and I truly love working one-on-one with students. With an MA in linguistics, and a background of working in education for over 25 years, I find that there is nothing more satisfying than seeing the light bulb appear above the student's head when he or she finally gets it.
My strengths as a tutor include the fact that I am excellent at communicating with my students, I know how to work at each student's level, and still can get each student to move up to the next level. I also have a way of making work fun for my students, finding a way to connect with them through a touch of humor, when appropriate.
I specialize in the realm of language--all things English (reading comprehension, grammar, essay-writing skills, vocabulary, literature--you name it), Spanish up through college level and French up through at least French II in high school. I have tutored SAT I prep for years successfully for both parts of the English (writing and reading) as well as the math portion, and have helped prep students as well for other standardized tests such as the SAT Spanish subject test, and SAT Literature test, ACT, HSPT, ISEE, and COOP tests. I work with students ranging from 4 years of age (pre-K preparation) through college (English and Spanish skills primarily for college students).
