About Grace


Bio

I am an optimistic, compassionate woman who loves to help others succeed. I enjoy motivating people to do their best and find solutions to problems. Perseverance is the key to conquering the fear of failure that keeps many students from achieving success in their goals. My goal is that each one of my students would learn to look beyond the struggles of today towards the opportunities of tomorrow.

I am an optimistic, compassionate woman who loves to help others succeed. I enjoy motivating people to do their best and find solutions to problems. Perseverance is the key to conquering the fear of failure that keeps many students from achieving success in their goals. My goal is that each one of my students would learn to look beyond the struggles of today towards the opportunities of tomorrow.

I am the oldest child in a large family, and my youngest sister has Down Syndrome. My sister became one of my first students, and the harder she worked to learn, the more I was inspired to find creative ways to teach her. I volunteered as a math and literacy tutor for a local Down Syndrome Achievement Center and sharpened my passion for tutoring. In the following years, I volunteered as a tutor in public elementary schools and continued to pursue education. I taught English to elementary, middle, high school, and returning adult students in schools across India for two years. In 2017, my first book, a non-fiction book about children whom I had met in India, was published. I am writing volume two, in hopes of inspiring children with stories of other children who have overcome obstacles.

As a result of my experience in inner-city public elementary schools and abroad, I believe that encouragement is essential to academic success. I teach English students how to develop a versatile vocabulary as well as a proper understanding of grammar. When teaching elementary math, I use concrete objects such as blocks and other manipulatives to "show" the student why the numbers multiply or divide the way that they do on paper. After teaching a concept, I will evaluate whether or not the student has understood it. If he/she still needs help, I will provide more examples and assign homework. I am a firm believer in support and achievable goals. I enjoy helping students of all ages overcome mental roadblocks by providing support, feedback, and encouragement.

I have worked with students of all ages, in various school and independent settings, in learning study habits. I have taken a course in study & memorization techniques, and found effective ways to manage time. It is so freeing when a student finds that he does not need to study more, he needs to study more efficiently.

Patient and caring!

Grace is a very patient and caring tutor. She works with my daughter on her English grammar and writing. She gives detailed summary after every session explaining what has been done, and how my daughter was doing during the session. She also assigns homework after each session and sends follow up reminder email during the week to encourage my daughter to work on the tasks. We will continue to work with her to help my daughter to achieve her goal.
