About Gertrude

I am the first born and the first American in my family. Growing up nobody in my family spoke English. Mom spoke only French and Dad spoke only German. I learned a hybrid of English, French and German. When it came time for me to enter grade school things were very difficult. Atop of the language barrier I was dyslexic and suffered from the “can’t sit still and be quiet’s”. The pains and struggles to perform were agonizing.
What gives me great pleasure as a teacher is knowing a student; who was just like me, does not have to struggle as I did. That I can make a change. I can provide a safe, healthy learning environment. That all successes are celebrated no matter how small. I can make a positive difference.

I have taught Elementary School for 14 years.

I have the experience and training to provide tutoring that fits the specific needs of the student.
