I can help students improve their Math
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
. 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
. 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.
