I am an experienced, patient tutor who can help a student in math, sciences, Spanish 1 or 2, or with ASVAB, PSAT or SAT prep. I will quickly assess a student's learning styles and study skills and use that knowledge to launch an effective tutoring program. My specialty is grades 6-12, but I will take younger students as well as college or adult students.
With my B.A. in Psychology from Wellesley College I have had courses in child development and learning strategies. I also have my M.A. in International Relations from Yale University. After home-schooling my own 2 children in all subjects, I began tutoring grade school students in math and ESL. I have now been tutoring for more than 12 years in math, sciences, English, ESL, Spanish and other subjects. Over the last 3 years I have had success tutoring many young people for whom more help is needed in one or more subjects.
Now in Yorktown, I am available for clients in Yorktown, Hampton or Newport News. Let me assist with Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, Biology, Earth Sciences, Chemistry, and test preparation -- SAT, GED, ASVAB, TEAS, or SHSAT exams. I also teach ESL, having successfully helped students whose first language is Chinese, Korean, Portuguese or Spanish.
For serious, long-term test preparation I offer a reduced price first session and a consultation to map out your plan of study. You can improve your SAT or ASVAB scores and your future college or enlistment options.
Everyone learns at different rates and in different ways and public schools can't meet the needs of every student. Tutoring can open minds and show the way in a subject. Students must be ready to study and work hard on their own for their success to happen! Please read my reviews and my blog and I hope to hear from you soon. I am willing to work out discounts for multiple students from the same family or in the same class at school.
