Hello, my name is Frances and I would love to be your tutor in English; reading and writing. I also specialize in study skills. The repetition of several sessions helps students develop good study habits. I also teach beginners level Photoshop.

I am a short story writer by training and am in the midst of arranging for publication of a graphic novel. I have submitted some of my stories to various magazines; the Georgia Review, the Kenyon Review, the New Yorker.

Your child will not likely follow your lead on study skills but for a Special Tutor they will respond beautifully as a rule. They feel the tutor is a special person there just for them and I really do feel that way myself. I especially like having a study skills student because I get to watch them go from flunking a subject to passing. I get to see the look on their face when they realize the studying techniques actually work !! I always tell my students, "The brain works on repetition". These study skills become habit. Habits that will continue on to college !!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe Photoshop

I received my certificate in Photoshop from McFatter Vocational in Davie.

English

English was my favorite subject in school.

Proofreading

My mother was a proofreader at the Miami Herald in the days before computer spell check, which doesn't catch all the errors like a person can. I took after her and proofread other kids work at school.

Reading

When I was a student in elementary school, I was sent to the library to work alone on reading assignments which showed my comprehension level was quite high.

Writing

As a short story writer and poet, writing is my favorite past-time.

Frances’s Resources

I am having a wonderful time with an 8th grader who attends an excellent private school. All he needed was a little boost in study skills. I am reticent to divulge my techniques. But they are unique and they do produce results. In not too many sessions, study techniques become habit. Habits they can take to college !!!
