About Greta


Bio

I have a Master’s degree in economics from the University of Arizona and have tutored in the Washoe County School District (WCSD) for over 10 years logging over 1,000 hours with students from 7 to 18 years old. I work with students in a class setting and after school on an individual basis and in groups of three or more. The tutoring sessions offer assistance in homework coupled with reinforcing concepts that were introduced in class.

I have a Master’s degree in economics from the University of Arizona and have tutored in the Washoe County School District (WCSD) for over 10 years logging over 1,000 hours with students from 7 to 18 years old. I work with students in a class setting and after school on an individual basis and in groups of three or more. The tutoring sessions offer assistance in homework coupled with reinforcing concepts that were introduced in class.

My tutoring approach is tailored to each student’s learning style with the goal of building confidence and the love of learning into the student’s academic life. For those students who prefer a visual learning style, I break down the assignment or concept into visual steps using diagrams and images. For the student who prefers an aural learning style, I offer concepts using music and sound. For those who enjoy a more physical learning environment I use a kinesthetic approach with games that offer a sense of touch. With each step, my goal is to give them the tools and desire to produce results on their own!

As a parent of two WCSD graduates, I acknowledge different learning styles and realize that are many ways to approach an assignment or a new concept and as a tutor, I need to find the method that works for your student.

Over the last 10 years, I have seen any number of the students I have tutored grow from a (sometimes) struggling student, to a proud high school graduate walking across the stage to receive their honors diploma!

I am qualified to tutor math through Algebra 1, English, French and Spanish. Through attending school in Switzerland, I am fluent in French. I have worked with any number of ELL students, mostly Spanish-speaking, but other languages as well. I have found often role-playing and games help student enjoy learning another language. I relate the learning to everyday situations to provide cues that allow for easier recall.

In English, I focus on essay writing, the rules of grammar and learning to enjoy reading. Students with whom I have worked successfully include those who have just arrived in the United States speaking very little English, those with learning disabilities and those who were taking AP English. Reading aloud, working with vocabulary and flashcards and breaking down essay writing have helped these students tremendously as many have gone onto college.

In Math I avoid focusing on rote memorization of rules, instead focusing on application of the rules to create a problem-solving mindset. I relate math to everyday situations and apply the math concepts to real world examples. This technique has been successful to help students understand the value of a strong foundation in math.

In general, my approach with students is to build on their study habits (teaching them to fish, rather than just giving them a fish!) and to translate their learning style into test-taking techniques. Most importantly, I work on instilling a love of learning in students. In every subject, I really enjoy seeing joy wash across the student’s face when they “get it”!

I would love to help your student. Please message me if you would like to discuss how I can help your student build their strengths, overcome their weakness and, most importantly, develop confidence that they will succeed!

French

I grew up speaking French and have tutored for many years. I have been fortunate to tutor elementary through adult students. Elementary school students are often in the early stages being exposed to language. My adult students are studying to take the exam to become high-school French teachers. In all tutoring sessions, I enjoy making learning fun and practical by introducing concepts using visual, tactile and aural techniques!
Spanish

Spanish

I love the Spanish language. I studied Spanish in college and have traveled frequently to Spanish-speaking countries. In my lessons I embrace the culture as well as the need for facility with conversation. We practice basic conversation and fundamental grammar while working with sentence structure and verb tenses.

I have been tutoring for over ten years. I enjoy working with students who are struggling with putting words on paper. We work on organizing thoughts, outlining, paper formatting as well as structure and content. I try to make writing fun and memorable by using visual and audio aids. I'd love to help as writing is such a powerful communication tool.

Greta "gets" teens!

Thanks so much for meeting my daughter halfway! I really appreciate the effort to establish a relationship first and have fun with my daughter. That will pay off in spades down the road when the work is frustrating. Thank you!

Amazing teacher

I’ve been out of school for a long time, and she tailors the lessons to help me catch up! I enjoy her teaching style so much. I look forward to our next lesson.

Kenneth, 6 lessons with Greta

Great tutor. We really like Greta!

We have had 2 lessons so far with Greta. My husband and I are learning French. We are thoroughly enjoying our lessons with her. The first two were more conversational and very basic, I think next week we are taking a deeper dive into the verbs and more of the technical side of things. :) We are very excited and truly enjoy Greta as a person as well.
