About Monica

Teaching and tutoring is my gift. I have had teaching experience with many ages, many nationalities and many subjects. I have lived over seas and know the hard work and struggle it takes to learn a new language. From elementary students to PhD students, I have helped students make gains in English, reading, and writing. I have taken the PRAXIS exam both as an undergraduate and a graduate school student (and rocked it both times!), so I can help you pass it too. Students with learning differences such as dyslexia are my specialty. There is always a way to get where you want to go, and I love helping students find their path to learning.

I specialize in all things related to English- ESL, ESOL, TOEFL prep, writing, editing, proofreading, reading skills. I have experience with ESL learners from Asia, South America, and Europe. With my background in linguistics, I can help with accent reduction. As a college writing tutor, writing teacher, editor and proofreader, I have helped students clearly communicate their ideas. In my experience as 1st and 2nd grade teacher, I helped dozens of children learn to read and I have worked extensively with students with dyslexia. Homeschooling is my passion and I love helping homeschool families succeed.

From my experience with learning another language as an adult living over seas, I know language learning can be very hard. I have a Masters in Teaching English as a Second Language and learned many skills to help with workplace and academic English, accent reduction, correct grammar and preparation for the TOEFL exam. I have tutored classes and individuals from South Korea, Ukraine, Mexico, Romania and Colombia.

I am fluent in Romanian and can follow along in Spanish.

I will give you a great tutoring experience, tailor-made for your specific needs. With compassion and understanding, but a lot of drive, I will find a way to help you master the subjects you struggle with. During the school year, I am available Wednesday late afternoon/ evening for in person tutoring. Online tutoring is possible other evenings. In the summer, I will be available every afternoon.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have a Master's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language. I moved overseas and learned a new language as an adult, so I know how difficult it can be. But not impossible with the right study skills and methods.

Homeschool

I have homeschooled my own children for 10 years. I have directed a local homeschool group of 40 children for 5 years. I am familiar with many forms of homeschooling (Classical, Charlotte Mason, theme units, etc) and have used many curriculae. I have led workshops on homeschooling special needs children, marriage and homeschooling and am co-editing a homeschool curriculum.

Praxis

I have taken and passed the Praxis exam twice. I have made high scores both at the undergraduate and graduate level. With my knowledge of educational methods and philosophy, I can help others pass the Praxis. My scores are: Communication skills (test code 0500) : 679 (average performance range 654-668)
General knowledge (test code 0510): 676
Professional knowledge (test code 0520): 671
