I have tutored adults and elementary students in ESL. To learn English, we include real world experiences such as "How I spend my day, shop in a store or go to a doctor's office" as well as text books. I can tutor on-line as well
I am certified to teach grades 1-6 by the NYC Board of Education. I've tutored underachieving students in English and math, in the Board of Education and privately, in order to bring them up to grade level.
After giving assessment quizzes to ascertain a student's strengths and weaknesses, I help the student locate key words in sentences, and break down math problems into easily understood steps. Students also learn to understand and explain how they arrived at answers to math problems.
Most importantly, I motivate students to study by showing them how English and math help them in their daily lives.
