About Dr. Sylvie

Hello and Bonjour,

My students call me Dr. K, the "most fun math teacher they ever had". I guess they like my hands-on approach to teaching math, science, French, or whatever else they might need to learn.

Born and raised in France, where I obtained a doctorate in veterinary medicine, I went on to travel the world while working with endangered animal species, before earning a Master's degree in the USA. I have taught and tutored for the last 30 years and have enjoyed (almost) every minute of it! "My" students are all different: struggling (but not for long), gifted, high achievers, daydreamers, active bodies, and so on. I just love seeing the spark coming into their eyes when they discover something new. I have never met a child who couldn't learn. I aim to inspire them so they become motivated and understand they can dream. There is not only one way to learn things. Every child has strong points and my job is to find these and then adapt my teaching methods to focus on their strengths. No better way to boost their self-esteem; then, not even the sky is the limit!

My teaching methods are simple: "Understand the concept and you have it"! I am a very "hands-on" person and use manipulatives, games, and even music to teach. I do not rely on memorization alone. Everything should be understood before it can be applied. Every student is different so I have an individual plan for each student, depending on the final goal for that student.

I have many references available upon request. Please do not hesitate to contact me for additional information.

Thank you.
Dr. K.

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.

Aspergers

I have worked with children with autism and Asperger's since high school in France. My own son was diagnosed with Asperger's. He has been home-schooled for 8 years. Working with Asperger's students is a fascinating challenge. I try to find kinetic activities to reinforce their learning activities. I find coaching these students both challenging and highly rewarding.

French

I am French and hold a graduate degree from France.
I have organized French clubs in different states and taught French to many children.
I also organize stays in France for children and welcome international children on our ranch.

Prealgebra

I have received several Math awards while a student (all the way through college).
Pre-Algebra is my favorite math subject to teach as I believe it is the most important one: Once your daughter masters it, higher level math will be reachable. We are also able to review anything needed.

Zoology

I am a wildlife veterinarian and also the author of several wildlife magazines (in French). I would love to mentor any young aspiring zoologists or wildlife biologists/veterinarians.
