About Geri

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.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Great Spanish Teacher

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.
