I believe in knowledge, specifically reading. If you can read, you have the power to learn anything, thanks to our great public libraries, and teaching library/research is included in any lesson, as needed.
I have taught reading skills at the elementary level and help students catch up through patience, phonics,and practice. But no matter your level, understanding what you've read requires effort is critical and my success is dependent on my student's ability to demonstrate comprehension, orally as well as written.
I spent two years overseas teaching English to high school students as well as public speaking for professionals and while these are my top skills, I also incorporate methods to enhance a student's overall competency by challenging them to explain or defend opinions and discuss current events - globally or at their school.
Services are billed when satisfactory feedback is rendered by the student and/or parent.
I take my commitments seriously and expect others to as well. However, I have an easy cancellation policy because things do come up. But this remains negotiable, depending on the frequency of use.
