Bio

Every student has one thing in common--potential. I have been a tutor for over fourteen years. I enjoy seeing a student's eyes light up when they begin to understand a new concept. No subject is too difficult, but each student needs to find their own way to master new concepts--That's my specialty: I match the learning style of the student to the method and students are destined to succeed.

Every student has one thing in common--potential. I have been a tutor for over fourteen years. I enjoy seeing a student's eyes light up when they begin to understand a new concept. No subject is too difficult, but each student needs to find their own way to master new concepts--That's my specialty: I match the learning style of the student to the method and students are destined to succeed. I have been a writer for many years, as well as an editor. I enjoy the teaching process which includes finding ways to simplify difficult concepts. I am currently tutoring ESL students in language and culture whose goals include acquiring a more natural way of speaking English. My high school and elementary students include ESL students and others who are seeking to master English, history, literature and writing.

Being a public speaker with 30 years of experience, it is my joy to incorporate the art of communication in teaching. I look forward to meeting you and assisting you in achieving your goals!

Literature,

Literature

I have a love for literature which I seek to share with my students. Teaching high school literature for 8 years has afforded me the opportunity to explore American, British and Shakespearean literature and understand how valuable these disciplines are to students. Engaging students in these studies by teaching them to apply critical thinking techniques always equips them with the tools necessary to decode or unravel the author's deeper messages within the texts. By studying the various techniques writers use to communicate their stories, we gain insight into the minds of these great communicators and students come to appreciate the craft of writing. Studying great literature requires analysis, which is a wonderful tool for any student to possess.

Great Tutor

  René has the heart of a true teacher. She makes difficult subjects easier to understand and goes above and beyond for her students. René has excellent social and communication skills. She has assisted our family with ESL tutoring both myself as a businessperson working to succeed in language acquisition, as well as my niece who is seeking to excel in her high school studies. Her English is impeccable, which is so helpful when studying  ESL and she spends time after our sessions searching to find materials to help us improve even more-- examining them and providing additional helpful information with the goal of increasing our understanding. Her depth of knowledge in so many subjects has proven invaluable. Highly recommend.

Diversified Lessons

Rene is a lovely, patient teacher who teaches my mother, a beginner student, with various materials, so her lessons are never boring. On top of that, Rene knows how to chose the right level English books so students will feel confident to continue learning. It was a nice experience leaning English from Rene.
