Dowling College (Master's)
I have many years of teaching experience in the public school system. I have taught all levels of Spanish, French, from preschool up to and including adults, although at the present time, I restrict my teaching to grades 7 and higher. When I was a classroom teacher, I had a 100% success rate with regard to both the French and Spanish Regents exams. This rate of success has continued with regard to both the FLACS A and FLACS b EXAMS. I was recognized by the Leaders of American Secondary Education and Who's Who Among America's Teachers.
I definitely connect with kids and I find that I generally can turn them around from being a failing or mediocre student to one who does well and is able to maintain their successful strategies even after tutoring has ended.
I am a very hard worker and I carefully plan for every student, writing my own exercises, etc., to ensure that each student is being taught what he or she needs to succeed.

Style of teaching is great. I look forward to my sessions and I am always satisfied upon leaving every lesson. I would highly recommend Geri. She is always quick to respond via email or text if I have any questions and she is always flexible and very pleasant if I need to change around a time or date because of my busy schedule. She is an absolute pleasure to work with.
Excellent, flexible with schedule, and comes with work to help my daughter learn Spanish. Very patient and knowledgeable. Looking forward to next lesson. Very fair rate for a high quality tutor.
Geri is very knowledgeable and thorough. She takes the time to make certain that the concepts are understood. She is patient, and she will try to find different ways to explain things. Geri is very flexible and is always willing to work with my schedule.
Geri is focusing her tutoring on FLACS exam prep just as we asked her to and seems very knowledgeable about the test.
Justice is learning so much from Geri. I think soon he will be learning how to conversate. He received a 90 on the last test and wanted to dive into his homework right away.
Geri accommodated my last minute request quickly, preparing me for an upcoming trip to Paris. She is knowledgeable and was patient during her lessons. I highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning or brushing up on their French. Merci!
Ms. Geri has a very positive teaching style that combines confidence-building with knowledge. My daughter was further behind in French than I realized. Ms. Geri has outlined areas of priority and has set out to prepare my daughter for her end of year exam. She leaves assignments for her to complete during the week to make the most of time she has to tutor. She is no-nonsense, but kind and fair: a combination that works well with a young lady who needs a push to succeed.
Geri comes well prepared to tutor. She is friendly and patient and explains the lesson clearly and orderly. My daughter felt very comfortable with Geri and her first session helped her very much!
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.
