I have worked with adult literacy students preparing for the GED exam and entering the job market. I currently work understanding and explaining business needs to write documents for technical colleagues. The ability to be patient and clear about what is needed and the skill of "translating" clearly into writing helps me with students from age 9 through adult.

Using a goal based program, we will work on reading comprehension, clear speech and writing. Lessons often include activities tied to art, geography and current events to broaden knowledge of the world. Understanding how to focus--for studying and as a life skill--is part of our sessions. My approach develops independent thinking as well as meeting specific learning goals.

Note: I speak Italian and get by in French.
