About Josie


Bio

I am a former teacher, principal and college professor who has the patience and compassion to work with students at their own pace. I have an undergraduate and graduate degree in Education, in particular, Montessori Education, which encourages students to indivualize their learning. I also work on the notion that students can develop a love of learning and intrinsic motivation to keep them focused on the goals set early in the tutoring sessions.

I am a former teacher, principal and college professor who has the patience and compassion to work with students at their own pace. I have an undergraduate and graduate degree in Education, in particular, Montessori Education, which encourages students to indivualize their learning. I also work on the notion that students can develop a love of learning and intrinsic motivation to keep them focused on the goals set early in the tutoring sessions.

I work very well with Elementary-age, middle school and even high school students who need encouragement, support, and tips and improving test scores and grades. I teach students how to become organized and how to prioritize assignments/projects. I teach study skills and take the time to encourage good study habits.

I had to refresh my pre algebra skills while taking several entrance exams for undergraduate and graduate school.

I have a natural interest in biology and understand how to explain these concepts with hands-on methods, such as building 3-D models.

Spanish was my first language, but I mastered English in Kindergarten, so I can switch back and forth between languages with the correct pronunciation.

I have been in Toastmasters for the last three years and I have improved my public speaking ability tremendously.

PSAT work is the basis of all high school Standardized Testing and college entrance exams. I have a strong math and language skill set and I also know how to teach test taking skills.

I will encourage and support you with your learning skill set with gentleness, compassion and constructive feedback.
