Elementary math is what we all use daily. When do I need to leave the house to get somewhere on time? Do I have enough in my pocket for a donut with my coffee?
If you or your kid shies away from numbers, I can help. Math, like anything else, is easier to approach if you don't hate it. Give me the chance to re-introduce you to your enemy. You may be pleasantly surprised!
When tutoring ESL, my focus is on what you need now. What is the skill that will make your life easier, and fast.
Do you need help pronouncing? Understanding someone talking? Reading? Writing notes?
Do you need vocabulary that is specific for your job, or for talking with you doctor.
Learning a new language is complicated. You need to learn the spoken language, and the written one.
But ESL is more than learning a new language. It means learning a new culture. And it means that until you learn all this, you struggle to function at the level you are used to as an adult, or even as a kid.
Simple things we take for granted are difficult tasks. Chatting with a neighbor. Shopping for food. Talking with the kid's teacher. Taking the driver's test.
I will work with you to improve what you want to, or help you find out what is holding you back.
Are you frustrated with your computer or smart phone skills?
If computers, smart phones or tablets feel like a foreign land to you, I can help. Once I teach you the language, you will easily be able to accomplish what is important to you.
It is never too late to learn.
I lived in Israel for many years, and am fluent in Hebrew. What I specialize in is teaching the alphabet and reading. I can help you or your kids improve your Hebrew reading skills, whatever your starting level is.
We use reading every day. Those of us who do it well are not aware of it. But for those who are struggling, it is a continuous pain.
Improving the ability to read and understand books, recipes, instructions, medication labels, food labels, street and store signs, ideas, poetry, history. All these change a person's life, and sometimes a whole family.
If you are reading this - you are fortunate that you can.
Since this skill affects our life so widely, it is important to get better at it the earliest you can. If you or someone you know need help, let me know.
Having study skills means knowing HOW to study, as opposed to the information which is WHAT you study. That means having a system that works for you, with which you approach studying anything.
Knowing how you study best, what works for you, and how do do it makes approaching new material less intimidating and more fun.
As your tutor I have the advantage of sitting with you one-to-one, and together we can find out what works best for you. You can create a system that will benefit you from now on.
You can learn how to take notes in class or during self study, how to study for a test, how to take a test, and more.
