About Bernard

Bonjour! How are you? I'm thinking that there may be a bit of anxiety or frustration, hence reading a bit about me and my English Language Arts background ,yes?! Understood.

I've been helping America's youth for quite some time in both the public and the private sectors. Teaching and tutoring is so rewarding, especially when I make the learning process: a) step by step - not too fast, not too slow , b)tailored to meet the needs of the amazing individual I'm assisting , c) ensuring that the focus of our meeting is to help you with your immediate academic need(s) as well as perhaps to give you tips that you may apply when it's time to "conquer" that all-important test or assignment.

You HAVE to know that writing and reading (both light reading as well as reading for deep comprehension) permeates one's social and professional life, both now and the future. Being able to effectively communicate one's thought via good grammar and effective writing ... whether or not you are a fan of the Common Core ... is important.

As a Loyola Marymount English major (and a double Masters degree earner), I've used my skills as I a)earned a solid GPA, b) did quite well on the SAT , c)have "made my own luck" in the way of job offers presented and d)have been luckier than most in the happiness I have found while effectively communicating in over twenty countries (most western Europe countries , in addition to Canada, the Caribbean and Mexico).

Now that you know a bit about me, let's make sure that the focus is on you! Make the English language work FOR you, not against you. Make English your best friend. Speaking well and "naturally" displaying a propensity or a proclivity toward this wonderful art form will prove to be one of your more valuable investments. Now, let's get started!
