Bio

I am a student myself, working toward a master's degree in advanced education, with an emphasis on International Baccalaureate. I am on the Dean's list, and I take learning very seriously. As for my teaching/tutoring methodology, I would say I believe in assisting students to learn how to be lifelong learners using critical thinking. It is part of my teaching philosophy, and so it is my goal to teach students how to ask questions, not only of me but of the world around them. I have taught...

I am a student myself, working toward a master's degree in advanced education, with an emphasis on International Baccalaureate. I am on the Dean's list, and I take learning very seriously. As for my teaching/tutoring methodology, I would say I believe in assisting students to learn how to be lifelong learners using critical thinking. It is part of my teaching philosophy, and so it is my goal to teach students how to ask questions, not only of me but of the world around them. I have taught students in Asian countries, the US, and across Europe, and one thing stands out- the critical thinking and imagination necessary to truly succeed in this world are not being taught in the traditional classroom.

In order to teach critical thinking in all subjects, I love to use games, audio, video, role-plays, discussion topics, props, etc to assist students in their learning. I am a firm believer in edutainment, and I believe if we are being entertained while we learn, not only is it easier, but it is also more fun, so we want to do more of it! When working with young English learners, I find that songs with videos really enhance the lessons teaching new vocabulary and grammar, and with math, when we learn certain "math magic", we discover that math isn't something to be afraid of, but rather a source of fun! I have helped students of all ages and abilities learn and perfect their English, reading, writing, math, science, and test-taking abilities, and I would love to help you!
I am very easy to reach, and I will respond to any and all questions as quickly as possible! Thank you for your time, and I look forward to seeing you during a lesson!

Homeschool

When my oldest son wasn't succeeding in public school, it became clear that he was not being challenged in the classroom, so I chose to take him out and homeschool. It was one of the hardest and most rewarding challenges I faced as a parent. Watching him go from extremely depressed about school to having a zest for learning within just a couple of weeks was truly life-changing. Today, he is a 30 yr-old computer programmer working in coding, Java, Python, and so many other applications I know nothing about!

Very bad experience

We had a bad experience with this tutor. After the first lessons, we found her disorganized, and ill-prepared for her lessons. She once spent 15 minutes looking for an assignment to give my child. My child made no forward progress with her; in fact, he under performed because the tutor strayed from the lesson plan. The tutor had plenty of excuses for her ill-preparedness. The tutor agreed to a certain lesson plan but did not teach it during sessions. We canceled our sessions. It's a waste of time working with this tutor

Funny lessons

Ms. Terra is very charismatic and energetic person. She finds a way to plan lessons that suit your needs and are enjoyable at the same time. I highly recommend her for helping you in whatever reasons you have to study English.

Terra is amazing!

Terra started studying with my son for his GED about 3 months ago. We had tried traditional, online, and charter schools and nothing kept him focused or interested. A one to one study seemed to be our only option left to get him through high school. My son begrudgingly started studying with her and she had been wonderful. She has been able to get him talking and learning again. She is very knowledgeable and patient is an understatement as my son while finally making attempts is still a surly teenager with shaky motivation at times and she has handled our bumps in the road with kindness and understanding. I would highly recommend Terra as a tutor.
