About Vivian

I have extensive experience in working with school children as well as adults. I worked several years with an agency in France teaching business English and conversational skills to engineers about to take trips to the USA. I have tutored children grades 1 to 12 in English, Greek and French: reading, writing, grammar and literature. I have worked with children of immigrants to quickly improve their English skills and help them assimilate into their "new" American schools. Have extensive experience in proofreading, and writing skills. Having worked in NYC high schools, I am experienced in dealing with all kinds of students and have helped them improve study habits, read and write clearly, concisely, correctly and express themselves freely at the same time. I have worked as a supportive counselor with senior citizens and am trained to listen and learn from the student, which in turn helps me be a better teacher.

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.

Greek

I am a Greek-American and spoke only Greek at home until I began school at St Demetrios Greek Parochial School in Queens, NY. I've traveled extensively in Greece and am married to a Greek. We speak Greek at home to each other and to our child, who also went to a Greek parochial school. I presently work for a large NYC Social Service agency that works with the local Greek population. I am one of the few Greek-speaking counselors in the tristate area so most cases are referred to me.

Reading

I am a Graduate of NYU with a Bachelor of Arts, and have also done Hunter College Masters coursework.
