About Rowena

Hello! I'm an educator in a public school district, working with 5th and 6th graders. I'm a school counselor who helps students develop the academic, social and emotional skills needed to be successful in school and in life. To help students be successful academically, I work one-on-one and in small groups, teaching them study and organizational skills, test preparation and test-taking strategies. I also help them with classwork, homework, and projects. As a counselor, I have a very good rapport with students. I am very patient, and work with them at their own pace. I became a school counselor because I love to work with children, helping them build up their confidence and be successful in life.

During the summer, I also work as a Language Arts teacher in a "Summer Fun Program" in which I engage students in Grades K-8 with technology and interactive activities to help them practice their reading and writing skills. The experience is fun and rewarding for both the students and me! Several years ago, I taught English as a Second Language in China to students ages 6 to adult. Following a curriculum, I created my own lesson plans and assessments to make the class lessons engaging and fun. It was definitely a fulfilling and once-in-a-lifetime experience.

As a private tutor, my goal is to help your child improve in areas that you've identified, whether it be reading, writing, or mathematics. I will first assess his/her current skill level and then individualize my lesson plans to his/her needs. I will provide you with feedback and suggestions/resources to reinforce the lessons at home. I truly value your feedback and encourage open communication on how best to help your child be successful. While I require 24 hours notice of cancellation, I am flexible and will provide make-up lessons. I am willing to travel to your home to tutor or meet you at the public library or other agreed upon location. Please contact me for more information. I look forward to hearing from you and helping your child succeed.

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.

Study Skills

I am qualified to tutor in Study Skills because I teach these skills to students in my school. As a guidance counselor, I run weekly Study Skills groups for students who are not doing well academically. In these groups, I provide strategies for organization, studying for tests, and assignment/project completion. Students have shown improvement in their grades after they have attended my sessions.
