About Fraida

I have a passion for being educated and educating. That is why I have extensive tutoring experience, and that is why I value each and every tutoring experience highly. My experience in teaching the subjects of computers, math, English language, writing, science, religious lessons, ethics, and other subjects has extended throughout various age ranges. For instance, I have taught elementary school students, high-school students, college students, homemakers, police officials, court employees, and a Judge. The education that I provide has become popular mostly because of my patience towards my students, as well as my methods of directing the education towards the specific, individual needs of the students with whom I communicate. I invest sincere effort in ensuring that the student is receiving the best services, so that he/she can achieve up to his/her greatest potential.

When I educate, I determine a level and speed based on an initial evaluation, and as the student grows and learns more - I accelerate or decelerate according to the exhibited rate of the student. I teach my students in a way that the students learn what they want to learn in just the right amount of time - without cutting corners, and without extending the time unnecessarily. I have experience teaching in the U.S. and abroad, and even in the U.S. I have tutored students from foreign countries like: Mexico, Costa Rica, Israel, Belarus, etc, and I welcome and respect diversity. It is my belief that frequently individuals fail to reach their actual potential in school, business, or other endeavors - not necessarily because they are not motivated, but often because they were not fortunate to receive proper education or training. I have a genuine desire to fill the gaps, and assist children and adults in understanding material that they can understand with the right education.

Please contact me in order to coordinate a time and location that is convenient for you to receive the education that you are entitled and will be privileged to receive. Thank you.

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.

Adobe InDesign

I have received two semesters of education in a school-setting in Adobe InDesign, and I have extensive experience using this program. I have published a High-School yearbook, as Editor-in-Chief, and I have published a playbill for a performance performed throughout a foreign country. Both of these publications were completed using Adobe InDesign, and I was the designer and editor of these publications. While working as Editor-in-Chief, part of my responsibilities included educating other editors, designers, and writers of techniques within this specific program.

Hebrew

I have had education in the Hebrew language during all of my elementary, middle-school, high-school, and post high-school education. I lived in Israel for close to a year, and spoke the language there, and attended a school which provided education in the Hebrew language. I also delivered model lessons in Hebrew to Hebrew-speaking students of all ages. I have experience tutoring the Hebrew language, and I have experience tutoring the English language to Hebrew-speaking students.

Microsoft Outlook

I have utilized the program of Microsoft Outlook in my various jobs working for Denver County Court, Denver Police Department, University of Colorado Denver, and Adams County Finance Department. I have also mentored one Denver Police Sergeant in Microsoft Outlook processes.

Microsoft Publisher

I have extensive education and experience using Microsoft Publisher. I was asked by a high-school teacher to deliver a lecture to high-school students regarding Microsoft Publisher and its benefits, which I did. I have helped students learn this program, so that they can utilize the program on their own, and know how to navigate alone.

Web Design

I have experience using Joomla, a web-design program, and I was responsible for providing training of this program to an employee of a business.

Patient, Prepared, and Respectful

Fraida took time to access my needs. Her encouragement helped give me the confidence to continue on my path toward learning Hebrew.
