About Betty

I am an educator with over 14 years of experience tutoring students at all grade levels. I provide general homework help, standardized test PSAT, SAT GRE, GED preparation and assistance in developing effective study skills that will ensure success in all subject areas. In addition, I specialize in two areas of expertise: writing coaching and editing for essays, research papers and all written assignments and Spanish language instruction for children, teens, adults and business professionals.

I tailor my tutoring sessions based on individual student needs and learning styles. I create a rapport with the students I tutor which allows them to feel at ease with me and build confidence in their own capabilities through the support and encouragement I provide them. All this, while making learning fun, which I believe to be important in helping students to develop an ongoing passion for learning.

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 taught my own Kindergarten classroom for one year, a 4th grade classroom for one year and have been a substitute teacher for grades 1 to 6, as well as after school program coordinator for all grade levels.

After finding Betty I am happy to report that our daughter is on the right track now and continuing to catch up and understand math.
