I have been tutoring adults, teens and children in English
for over 7 years, as a stay-at-home mom and continuing when I returned to complete my degree. In addition to a flexible tutoring schedule, I currently teach Spanish and Art
to grades Pre K thru 8 and have subbed for several Monmouth County school districts. In the meantime, I'm busy raising my teenage son and working toward obtaining a master's degree.
Thanks to a strong grasp of grammar
in both English and foreign languages I have tutored ESL and Adult Education students at Brookdale Community College, grade school
and high school students, bilingual children and adults, children classified with the No Child Left Behind program, and small business
I WORK EQUALLY WELL WITH NATIVE AND NON-NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKERS OF ANY AGE OR GRADE LEVEL. I've worked with people from Central and South America, Europe and Asia, AS WELL AS native English-speaking Americans who have trouble with reading
, weak grammar skills, etc.
Whether you're falling behind in school, need help with exams or simply want to improve your language
skills, I can help! Together we can work on and improve:
* common pronunciation and grammatical errors
* auditory and reading comprehension
* verbal and written communication
* school exams and GED
* essays and term-papers
* preparation for U.S. Citizenship interview and exam
Not everyone learns in the same way or at the same pace, so individual tutoring sessions are planned with your personal needs in mind. Group tutoring is also available; rates vary slightly and are available upon request.
My educational background includes foreign language
study in Spanish, Italian
, as well as Graphic Design at Pratt Institute of Art. Ultimately both specialties were combined toward a B.A. degree in Humanities. Academic accolades include: The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship for study abroad at Universidad Catolica (Guayaquil, Ecuador), Dean's list, several Outstanding Achievement Awards, and other grants.
Feel free to contact me to discuss how we can personalize tutoring classes to fit YOUR needs today. I look forward to helping you succeed!
*In order to get acquainted prior to an actual tutoring session, I invite prospective students to meet at a mutually convenient location to discuss individual needs/goals. In addition to saving time and money for you, it helps me to effectively prepare by getting a better idea of your personal needs and difficulties. Meeting once, prior to an actual session, is offered at no cost or obligation.
