Lois has been tutoring my son for about six weeks and is doing an awesome job. She is very punctual and very relaxed but instructional with my son. She has tailored her teaching to his needs. He loves being taught by Miss Lois in a non-threatening and fun manner. Two thumbs up from your family in Palm Beach Gardens!!!
Thank you Ann for your generous feedback. I love tutoring your son because he is so very excited to learn and is always such a kind and sweet child.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Thank you for your generous feedback. It has been a pleasure working with you and I hope to continue our tutoring lessons.
Teacher Lois is a patient, kind, professional and structured tutor, I recommend her widely!.
The classes with her were very productive and interesting, focused all the time on my needs (fluency, listening) on topics of general interest. Her background as a teacher, and their method of preparation for classes, leave homeworks and do follow-ups, were key to improve my language level and meet my goals... thank you so much, teacher Lois!!!
Yohana was a terrific student who was enthusiastic about improving her English and always prepared with homework assignments.
When I used the word "honest" here it means she teaches her students with love, caring, concern and with lots of patience. Exactly the way we teach our kids. She has been an excellent teacher and my son loves to spend time with her and learn from her.
Thank you for your feedback. Your son is a joy to teach. He is curious about everything. I can count on him to ask questions that go beyond the story we are reading and thus he is learning at a very fast pace. Your tutor, Lois
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have taught children who are on the autism spectrum while teaching at a local school for over 6 years. I also have experience teaching both LD and ADD children.
While a director of an Easter Seals facility in Bensalem, Pa., I supervised the teachers who taught children with autism.
I am able to improve a student's understanding of basic English grammar usage which will lead to better scores on composition, all writing assignments, and would help them maintain and retain excellent FCAT scores.
I am able to teach English to those whose primary language is not English. I am presently tutoring a child in English reading comprehension whose primary language is not English. As a teacher, I have taught government to a student whose home was in Vietnam and who did not have a competent understanding of English. However, through my assistance in helping her understand the English terms and facts in the course on American Government, she passed the course with an A.
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.
I am able to tutor elementary school age children in both their acquisition of new words and their meanings as well as in their reading comprehension ability.
I have been a director for an Easter Seals center in Bucks County, which served special needs students.
I have taught special needs students while working at the Batt School in Juno Beach, Florida.
I have experience working with children who are on the autism spectrum, as well as students who have auditory problems.
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.
