Looking for a tutor with lots of experience and plenty of patience? I'm comfortable tutoring children, teens, and adults in many subjects. I worked as an elementary school teacher for 10 years in public and private schools, and am the mother of 3 grown children -- so nothing scares me! I've also taught English as a Second Language (ESL) to children and adults, the TOEFL preparation course, ACT/SAT preparation, and adults taking the GED exam. My specialty is reading, writing, elementary math, ESL, and ACT/SAT preparation. I have a Master's in Education, and am a student-centered teacher (i.e., I don't lecture!), with an informal, friendly style. I believe the best way to remember what we've learned is when we're having fun, so I always bring interactive and educational games and activities with me to my lessons. My first meeting with prospective students and their families is always free -- to see what the student's strengths and challenges are, to make sure we have shared goals for the lessons, and to find out if we're a good match.
