About Edith

As an experienced teacher of the elementary, high school and college levels, I am aware of the need for a tutor to adapt to a variety of learning styles. To be sure, this is the advantage of personalized tutoring. As an experienced teacher, I have helped students learn biology, and improve their reading and writing skills. I enjoy teaching and tutoring because I can see students thrive and succeed in a one-to-one setting, which is only experienced through private tutoring.

Now that the new semester has begun, it is important for students to learn subjects which will help them in their future years. Whether for an advanced placement class, to pass the STARR exams, or to better prepare for college, as you tutor, I am committed to your success.

Be proactive about succeeding in your classes This will make you a more successful student during the school year. As a tutor, I will tailor my instruction to meet your needs, assign productive homework, and write assessments to track your progress. The lessons will be challenging, but matched to your abilities. Most of all, you will profit from learning in an individualized setting and find that you really enjoy learning!

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.
