My name is Magdalena. I have been a tutor for many years, working for myself, as well as for Norwalk Community College in Norwalk, Connecticut. I am currently a Reading, ESL and Writing tutor at the Westchester Community College. The subjects I tutor are: ESL, writing, TOEFL, American Citizenship Test, and grammar.
I can also tutor older adults in basic computer skills, especially Word and email.
In my tutoring, I am open to individual needs and learning styles. At the beginning of our work together, I assess the student's level of comprehension and usually choose materials we will be working with, if not determined by student's school or particular needs. I also give a lot of homework, and expect it to be completed.
I like to work with people, and find various approaches to motivate my students. I believe every person is an individual and learns differently. I am open to suggestions, but at the same time, I know what strategies generally work better than others, and I ask the student to trust me in the process of learning.
The results depend on the commitment of the tutor, as well as the student. I do everything to provide positive learning experience, and in return, I expect completing all given assignments. Together we can achieve success. I have seen it many times in my career.
