Public Speaking

I am a teacher/tutor in Reading Comprehension, ESL, and social studies. I have taught for more than 9 years and have given both lectures and projects to students. Prior to living in Florida, I worked for a number of health not-for profits in giving talks to volunteers about the agency in the attempt to recruit volunteers. I was also employed for a number of years as a Historian with the National Park Service and was charged to create my own tours and give these tour/talks to both adults and children. I did take Public Speaking in college, and I had courses on Public Speaking with the National Park Service. I have also given talks on various subjects to managers of not-for-profits. As a high school students I entered a Public Speaking Contest for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. I was the President of the League of Women Voters in Montgomery County, Penna., and as such had given many speeches. I would certainly want to help others in their public speaking needs.

As a Social Studies Teacher, I am able to guide students to more effective study skills that provide retention ability needed to not only participate in classroom discussion, but allow for better understanding of material when tested. I am able to provide guidance in acquiring better study skills in the social studies and in reading. Because some students are not shown how to study history, for example, as a cause and effect, or a "5 point check" (who, where, when, how and why), they fail to see the significance of their studies, and ultimately are caught in a web of poor performance on tests and classroom work. Because I have worked with so many students to show them how to study WITH skill, I am able to help students in the social studies and in reading and literature work toward better study skills.

It is my belief that students who have problems in writing down their thoughts have not been taught the very simple rule of listing the who, how, when, where, and what of what they want to express on paper. I take my students through this rule until their writing, becomes not only easy, but fun.

Prompt, Prepared and Polite!

Lois showed up on time, prepared with a lesson plan! She took the time to get to know my son and he really enjoyed the lesson. I would recommend her to friends.

Mindy, 1 lesson with Lois

Wonderful

Lois is professional but very easy to talk to. She is currently working with my 6yr old son on reading. He loves her and he is getting the help he needs in a very fun but challenging way.

Very Patient

I Love Lois! She is very patient, funny, professional and really care about my Progress. She is easy to work with and she has flexible schedule. I have more confidence since I work with Lois.

Jules, 26 lessons with Lois

Great experience

Lois has been great to work with. My daughter has enjoyed her lessons so far. Lois is very organized and has a plan for my daughter and how she learns. It has been a great experience. I have to update my review! My daughter had taken the practice PSAT prior to working with Lois and had an extremely poor score. Some of that was that she did not prepare at all, but she also needed tutoring. Because of Lois, Audrey received a 181 on her PSAT. That was an increase of 22% in her grade!!! Unbelievable. I couldn't be more thrilled. Thank you Lois!

"Incredible" does not begin to describe Ms. Lois. She has been a wonderful addition to the education of my 11th grade home-schooled daughter. Ms. Lois taught my daughter American Government Honors in a way that had my child waking up every morning excited about learning! I only wish that my daughter had more Social Studies classes that she could take with Ms. Lois. My daughter learned above and beyond what the average student learns in a brick-n-mortar school in Palm Beach County, due to Ms. Lois' interesting and honorable teaching style. A basket-full of gratitude is all I can give to this wonderful woman!

Ms. Trey, 19 lessons with Lois
Tutor responded:

Dear Trey, Thank you so very much for your feedback. I enjoyed teaching your daughter and would welcome the opportunity to tutor her again should the occasion arise. Tutoring students like your daughter, who come prepared and interested, are a joy for me and I wish you both a wonderful holiday season.

Great tutor!

Lois is a great tutor, she's patient and understanding, she goes above and beyond to ensure that my daughter understands her lessons. We are so lucky to have Lois. My daughter is doing much better in AP history.

Michelle, 25 lessons with Lois
Tutor responded:

Dear Michelle, many thanks for your feedback. Tutoring your daughter is a joy as well as seeing her understanding of the subject as well as getting better grades. I enjoy coming to your home, and seeing you and your family so invested in her education. Best Regards, Lois.

Flexible and reliable

I am very thankful to the English teacher Lois R. Her approach is professional and the methodology very helpful. My vocabulary and grammar knowledge improved significantly. I recommend Lois R. very much.
