I have tutored children in the past especially regrading homework and various writing assignments. I also teach children's painting classes. With children the right approach is very important, making a session engaging, informative and yet almost like a game.
English is one of my favorite subjects on any level. Middle school through college. I was an A+ student throughout school and have taken English honors classes in High School. We will work to make the session engaging and productive.
I had the experience of moving to the US as a young girl with very little English. I was fortunate to have had a personal ESL tutor at my middle school who helped me through those first months. The knowledge and especially support have helped me immensely. I have been fluent in English for most of my life and now I am here to help you learn English and see what an exciting thing that can be.
Many people today do not know how to use the computer beyond the basics (and basics too) and are scared to start. In middle school I got my first computer and was hooked immediately. It was like a whole new different world. Whether for business or for pleasure computers are indispensable today and are quite easy to learn. All you need is the right approach and some information. And I will help you get that.
Throughout school I have often been complemented on my knowledge of grammar and spelling. I help my student though any hangups and fears you may have about grammar and spelling.
There is nothing more exciting that enjoying literature class or just being excited about a great book! I will help you get through any difficulties you may have in your literature classes and make sure its enjoyable.

I am fluent in Russian, speaking, reading and writing. I was born there and that's where I spent my childhood. I don't have any official certifications because I was fluent already. I can definitely assist students wanting to study Russian, as I am equally competent in both Russian and English.
Study Skills are important not just for taking certified tests, but for every day school work too. When you approach studying and a subject the right way, work can get finished in less time. I will help you study, better and faster, while scoring better on tests. And that leaves more time for other things!
