About Grace

I have nearly 20 years teaching experience working with students from elementary to adult. My areas of expertise are SAT, GED, MCAS and TEAS preparation (ELA portions are my strength). I have tutored as well as taught preparatory courses in each of these. My students find me to be fair, fun and honest. I encourage them to take responsibility for their own learning because I know there is no greater gift to give a student than the confidence that he or she can be successful.

In late April I will be building my summer schedule which I expect will fill up very fast. I have been very successful not only helping students build critical reading and writing skills, but also helping them meet the requirements for their summer reading programs. Without the additional pressure of school, sports etc., summer is also an ideal time for high school seniors and juniors to focus on the SAT's.

If you would like to take advantage of the summer to help your child strengthen his or her skills, please contact me.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified high school English teacher with 20 years teaching and tutoring experience. During this time, I have tutored elementary students in all content areas with great success and satisfaction.

Phonics

I have passed MA Teacher's test for teaching reading and and have tutored elementary students in reading and phonics.

Study Skills

I am a certified high school teacher who is trained in differentiated instruction. I have worked with and helped students with a variety of learning styles. I have helped students identify the methods and approaches that work best for them so that they can work more efficiently and experience less frustration in the academic arena. Often this knowledge transfers to other areas of their lives, and they become all around happier individuals.

TEAS

I have taught the TEAS preparatory course at Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School for several years. The students who took my class scored very well on the test.

Outstanding teacher

It's been 8 months since Grace has started to work with my two 8th graders. She picked them up at very difficult time when they both did no believe that they can succeed in any school subjects. Last week my daughter said: "Dad, I did well on social studies test even without Grace." For me it was the best indicator of Grace's outstanding work. She managed to guide my kids to the level where they ca
