Hello! Thank you for reading my profile. I am an experienced tutor with expertise in English, writing, reading, ESL, TOEFL preparation, study skills, test preparation, public speaking, French, Spanish, and math, including elementary, algebra, geometry and trigonometry. I went to Yale University as an undergraduate and I hold a graduate degree from San Francisco State University.

I have a lot of experience writing, teaching and tutoring. I have worked with students from the pre-K to college level. I have written two books, both nonfiction: The Mother of Us All, the story of a historical leader of Jamaica, and A Practical Guide for Incorporating Civic Responsibility into the Curriculum, written for college professors and students. I also wrote a curriculum to be used by middle school students for summer programming.

I have given presentations at over 50 venues including 20 colleges and universities in the United States and the West Indies (Yale University and the University of the Virgin Islands among them), various book stores, municipalities, and conferences.

I believe in empowering students to work hard and achieve success in all their endeavors. I work closely with each individual to create a program that is compatible with their learning styles and specific needs. At San Francisco State, I ran a tutoring program for 50 students and had 10 tutors working for me. I promise to deliver my best efforts so that every client is a success story.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a bachelor's degree from Yale University and a master's from San Francisco State University. I have five years experience tutoring, including two years where I ran a tutorial program in grad school. I have worked with children from five years of age to 18 and am capable of working with children in English, reading, writing, Spanish, math, social studies, and sciences. I am proficient in these subjects and have passed the necessary tests on this website to tutor in these areas.

I have much experience with young children and am particularly comfortable with the students in grades K-6.

My most recent tutoring experience with this age group was work I did with my two cousins, ages 6 and 7. I tutored them in basic math (addition and subtraction), reading, and phonics. I worked with them successfully such that they were able to bring their grades up in all classes.

My university education and my experience tutoring elementary aged children makes my qualified to tutor students at this grade level. I especially like working with this age group. I will certainly be able to help your child succeed.

Handwriting

I have a Bachelor's from Yale University and a Master's from San Francisco State. I have 5 years of experience tutoring and ran a tutorial program while in grad school. I have worked with young children in writing and handwriting, both cursive and print. I feel I am capable of tutoring students in handwriting based on my experience and education.

Public Speaking

I have 5 years of experience tutoring, including running a tutorial program while in graduate school. I hold a bachelor's degree from Yale University and a master's from San Francisco State University. I am author of two published books and have lectured extensively on a variety of subjects, at more than 50 venues. I have taken speech classes and am qualified to teach public speaking.

Social Studies

I hold a Bachelor's Degree from Yale University and a Master's from San Francisco State University. I wrote a history book that has been used as a textbook at many universities, in the United States, Jamaica and other countries in the West Indies. I have 5 years of experience tutoring a variety of subjects, including history, political science and other subjects that fall under the rubric of social studies.

Study Skills

I have a Bachelor's Degree from Yale University and a Master's from San Francisco State. I have 5 years of experience tutoring, including 2 years where I ran a tutorial program in graduate school. I have worked with young people on study skills, preparing them to have good habits including organization, test preparation, how not to procrastinate, and in general how to succeed in their academic endeavors.
