"Head first, understanding for success"
Throughout my 18 years as a classroom teacher, followed by 14 years as a school administrator, I have assisted many students in comprehension of their academics. Memorization is not understanding. Once a student gets the groundwork, or foundation, the rest builds from that.
Tutoring is an exciting way for me to be involved in assisting students on their paths. I have assisted dozens of high school students
I minored in Math as an undergrad. I taught curriculum heavily laced with math. ... ... More
Claire is warm, friendly, and patient. She speaks clearly and is easy to understand. She is very resourceful and has a lot of practical experience. She is building my confidence, while helping me adjust to the french language. She is flexible and adaptable to my learning needs, which is important for me, since I am an "adult" student of French. I highly recommend Claire as a french tutor. I also hope to join her on one of her Tours de Paris.

"Elaine - English and Reading Can Can Be Fun"
I am known as "the lady who makes learning fun." I was trained as an elementary education teacher, but discovered that I preferred working with individual students or small groups. English and reading are my passions - a student who "hates" English or reading has been shortchanged by a past teacher. No student should be "left behind" in such a fashion.
Not all students are visual learners; for this reason, my first task after meeting a student is to determine his or her learning styles.... ... More
