Public Speaking

As a basis for public speaking, I have taught students to use words that are comprehensible to the audience. I encourage them to speak about a topic which they know well and have enthusiasm about their subject. I teach them to make brief notes or bullets on index cards and only refer to them occasionally. A key to their success is knowing the topic well. I teach them to make eye contact around the room to make the address personal. Overcoming fear, I have taught them to find a topic which they like to tell about in a regular conversation. I have addressed lectures to college audiences.

Professional, Patient, And Knowledgeable Tutor

Judith is very professional in her approach, from the evaluation portion, lesson planning, to the actual tutoring. My daughter has only had one session with her so far, but she said that she had already learned a lot.

PAMELA, 5 lessons with Judith

Knowledgeable, Compassionate, and Creative Tutor

Judith brings wealth of knowledge and ability in working with my 3rd grade daughter in developing her reading, spelling, and math skills. She has great enthusiasm and makes the tutoring sessions fun. She has also been very creative in assisting our daughter across subjects- lots of good energy.

Kevin , 46 lessons with Judith

Wonderful Tutor!

Judy is a wonderful and patient tutor. We've had the great pleasure of having Judy as our daughter's SSAT Tutor for six months. Judy does not only teach the topics covered on the test and what test taking strategies may be assessed for each section of the exam; she also exposed our daughter to a much deeper level of understanding of reading and comprehension. And, our daughter just received the 99th percentile on her SSAT! I would recommend her services to anyone!

Yuna, 16 lessons with Judith

Great tutor!

Judy has been a wonderful math tutor for my 5th grader for more than eight months. Before he started tutoring with Judy, my child thought he was just bad at math. Now he has a positive outlook about math and it shows in his grades. Judy lets him work at his own pace and makes sure he understands a concept before moving on to the next one. Thank you Judy!

Tutor responded:

It is such a pleasure to work with him.

Very disturbing situation

I originally gave her a 4star rating she called me very angry telling me that I ruined her 5star rating and that because of that she was dropping me. She was very rude and was very concerned about me doing a background check. She hung up on me and I would think twice about hiring her.

Eugenia, 1 lesson with Judith

Excellent, patient and kind!

Judith has been excellent in working with my 8 year old son! Although in 3rd grade, he was about at a 1st grade level in math. Within weeks, Judith had him confidently solving multiplication problems. From a little boy who a little over a month ago was saying, "I'm not good in math," his self esteem is now through the roof. Addition problems appear easy because Judith helped quickly develop a solid foundation and breaks the sessions down into easily digestible chunks. We love Judith and hope she will continue to be an advocate in our son's education for a long time to come.

Anna, 61 lessons with Judith

Wonderful Tutor!

My 15-year-old daughter enjoys Judy as her tutor. So far she has had around 3 sessions. Judy has taught her reading techniques that have helped a lot. Judy is a very motivating and enthusiastic tutor and pushes my daughter to do better. While reading comprehension is the main subject she needs help with, Judy also helps her with other homework (like biology and math). Judy is a wonderful person and loves to tutor kids.
