About Louise


Bio

I have been teaching in some form, either in person or online, for over two decades. I do not waste a minute of a tutoring session; we will get straight to work and will make efficient use of our time together. My strengths as a tutor are two-fold: (1) I excel at helping students generate and organize better essays, papers and written projects and to understand and respond to written work, whether it's an SAT reading selection, a novel or nonfiction and (2) I am a patient and effective...

I have been teaching in some form, either in person or online, for over two decades. I do not waste a minute of a tutoring session; we will get straight to work and will make efficient use of our time together. My strengths as a tutor are two-fold: (1) I excel at helping students generate and organize better essays, papers and written projects and to understand and respond to written work, whether it's an SAT reading selection, a novel or nonfiction and (2) I am a patient and effective teacher of both Spanish and English as a foreign language.

I have taught ESL students (online) from all over the world and have worked with accent reduction, interview preparation, test preparation, both the basics and the finer points of English grammar and how to simply converse with more ease. Regarding Spanish: it's so important! If you or your child are struggling with Spanish, please don't give up! With over forty million Spanish speakers currently living in the United States, becoming bilingual or at least competent in the language will increase your marketability in the labor force and will enhance your travel options as well. I have taught myself Spanish as an adult and work with many Spanish speakers in my ESL tutoring. I can help you with grammar, accent, writing, any school project or interview preparation, and I can also help high school seniors prepare for the Spanish AP exam.

On a personal level, I am the mother of two teenage boys and as such am well-acquainted with the struggles of today's students, student-athletes and teens in general, as well as with the stress experienced by today's parents. Getting those college essays written can seem impossible. How to make your essay original but not weird. . .articulate but not fake. . .how to make it show the best of YOU. . .If you are a high school senior facing this intimidating task, please know that there is help available. I very much look forward to meeting you!

I have two degrees in literature and creative writing, a thorough understanding of the En

I have been teaching ESL as a volunteer since I was a teen and as a professional for the past two years. I have had students from all over the world and love watching them advance in English. Many have gained the skills to get better jobs and two of my Russian students have been admitted to American universities and are now living in the United States. I have worked with students of all levels and all ages from age three on up! Whether you are a beginner, are preparing for a job interview or simply want to reduce the accent of your native language, I can help you speak more fluently and with more confidence.

I have been certified by the government of Spain as speaking and writing Spanish at the fluent level (via the DELE exam). More important than my official certification, however, is the fact that I am a patient, understanding and encouraging teacher. The mother of two teenage boys (and Spanish students themselves) and a teacher/tutor with 5+ years of experience in this particular area, I have a deep understanding of the learning process and look forward to helping you or your child advance in this beautiful and useful language.

awesome!

A great start to learning Spanish, listened to my goals but started with a simple and realistic learning style. Excited for more lessons :)

Knowledgable and Helpful Tutor

Louise D. was incredibly helpful in assisting me in editing and preparing a Spanish research paper I had. She was equally as knowledgeable in writing as she was in Spanish, and I felt comfortable with all her recommendations. She was patient and clear. I would absolutely recommend her for anything writing or Spanish related!

Great tutor

Louise was really patient and easy to understand. Audrey had missed several weeks of school and was nervous about catching up on the work. Louise easily walked her through the material and Audrey felt very at ease after the tutoring session. It was our first time using Louise and I would gladly use her again she was easy to book with, very knowledgeable and very easy for Audrey to understand.
