I can help students improve their Math and English skills.

Math can be scary and intimidating, but if you understand its tricks and how it works it can become very fun! Just like walking in a dark hallway, that suddenly becomes clear when you turn on a flashlight, I can explain Math easily to help you clearly understand how to solve problems in a simple way. I have taught a number of children how to do subtraction, multiplication, long division and to work with decimals and fractions. I love it when students say "This is actually pretty easy!" I can also tutor algebra and trigonometry. No matter your level I am always patient and friendly. I try to explain Math in a simple yet efficient way, not in a convoluted and wordy manner, which sadly can confuse students in the school system.

As an English Major, I have had years of experience with reading, editing and writing. I can help students understand how to organize and write an essay, read more efficiently, improve their vocabulary and have fun with words. I helped a few of my peers in college with proofreading and editing their essays. I have helped children understand vocabulary and grammar and taught ESL for two years.

I am fluent in Spanish and can speak Japanese. I can tutor in these as well as ELS.

I hope to meet with you soon.

To make sure the student has a strong knowledge of the times tables, drilling is very important. Keep reading and re-reading the tables with your child, so that they can easily remember the multiplication answers. Some students that I've had had handy visual aids, like a rotating times wheel, which you can buy at any teacher's supply store. When there is a test however, there is more... read more

Very capable multilingual tutor with the patience to get results! — I was looking for a female math tutor for my elementary school-aged daughter. English is not her first language, so she had been having difficulties learning the material in class.
