I have always been an A student, from high school all the way through to my Ph.D. studies. However, my grades do not come to me easily: I credit my grades to my hard work and dedicated studying using efficient and effective study skills. The methods I use are the following: - I read passages/books twice. The first time to get a general understanding and look up words I don't know, a second time to answer questions I am asked. - I highlight key sentences and main ideas in passages/books, and even key words in questions to make sure I do not stray from the question asked. - I take thorough notes in class, and on any homework assignments. - I memorize necessary material, or, at the very least, understand it well enough that I can talk it through logically or even explain it to others to see if they understand what I am saying.

Great teacher!! Very kind, patient and knowledgeable. Truly the best!!

Hope has helped both my older daughters for just a couple of years!! They're in Middle school now. Both of them have done exceedingly well! They have grown to love school and are not afraid to face challenges head on. She makes learning easy and fun. We are so beyond grateful!! ❤️

Knowledgeable and Flexible Teacher

Hope has a great background in linguistics which means she is able to answer any question that I have with precision and depth. She has be very flexible with my learning goals and my own language learning background.

Stephen, 7 lessons with Hope

Great tutor!

Hope is so kind and patient. Our daughter was nervous about the idea of having a tutor, but she loves Hope! She is engaging and makes our daughter so proud of herself, which leads to her trying harder for Hope. Hope explains things perfectly. She is a great help in Math, writing, Spanish, etc. She really knows her stuff! Very lucky to have found her!

Amy, 5 lessons with Hope

Awesome Teacher

Ms. Hope is amazing! She is extremely knowledgable, and knew exactly what my son needed to improve on after the initial assessment. She improved my son's Spanish grade from a C to an A, after only just a few lessons.

Spanish Tutoring with Hope!

This review is long over due - Hope has been tutoring my 4th grader with Spanish - he is currently attending a Dual Immersion program and has needed some extra help that his parents cannot give him. Hope is an excellent tutor and knows her stuff!!!! My son is quite shy and was not on board with our idea of hiring a tutor but after his first session with her all his hesitation was pushed aside as Hope is patient, attentive and very personable ...excellent with children!

Juliana , 7 lessons with Hope

Truly the Hope our family needed!!

We have tremendous gratitude for the skills, patience and perseverance that Hope brought to the study of Spanish. She worked well with both our sons. Her ability to adapt to different learning styles was an added bonus. Hope was flexible in selecting teaching techniques that held the students attention.

Excellent Spanish/History tutor

Hope has been tutoring my daughter who is Junior at a private high school for few months now. Overall, she has exceeded my expectation. Hope is a motivator and knows how to encourage my daughter to excel in her Spanish course. Hope provides a written summary at the end of each session, flexible with scheduling and always on-time. We intend to seek her help in other subject areas such as History. In a nutshell, I wish we know of her services sooner and I would highly recommend her to any student.

Exemplary Tutor

There are a few characteristics that make up a great teacher/tutor: Respect for students-Hope makes it easy for my son to express and be himself. She creates a welcoming learning environment. Warm, accessible, enthusiastic and caring- Hope is approachable, not only to my son, but to my daughter, husband and I. Great teachers possess good listening skills and take time out of their way-too-busy schedules for anyone who needs them. Sets high expectations- Hope realizes that the expectations she has for my son greatly affect his achievement; she knows that my son will give as much or as little as is expected of him. My son has shown great improvement in his Spanish class. He is more confident and speaks more. Her own love of learning- Hope inspires my son with her passion for education and for the course material. Maintains professionalism-From personal appearance to organizational skills, communication and preparedness for each day. She is exemplary. While teaching is a gift that seems to come quite naturally for some, others have to work overtime to achieve great teacher status. Hope definitely is a natural and possesses the characteristics of a great teacher (tutor). I believe she is someone we can count on as a teacher/tutor to be remembered for years to come and selfishly I didn't want to write a review for fear that her time would be consumed by others in need. However, I know that if the time came she would find a way to accommodate additional time.
