I am a creative but serious teacher who usually has a great rapport with students. I have over 15 years of teaching experience at levels ranging from Middle School through university. I currently teach in Newton and have many prize-winners in the National Latin Exam, taken each spring.

I take a two-pronged approach to tutoring: the first is to work with students to get them up to date with current material; the second is to find their weaknesses and things they don't understand, and reteach the material or the basics to enable them to catch up. I have fixed problems in as few as 4 sessions, or have worked with reticent students intermittently for two years.

I am familiar with most of the textbooks and, if the student wants me to, I talk with the current teacher to support the student in meeting current expectations.

I can tutor two students in a session, provided they are both equally committed to the task and the chemistry is good, so families can save a little on the tutoring. Also, I am flexible in scheduling sessions, provided I have 24 hours notice.

I should add that I speak French, live in Wellesley, and specialize in Grammar. As a public school teacher in Massachusetts, I have a background check on file, so I have not requested a new one for this position.

Given the recent rise in the cost of gasoline, I might have to negotiate a surcharge if the round trip is more than 40 miles. Please contact me via this website. I look forward to meeting you.
