"Author; copy-editor; creative type"
I started babysitting at 11 years of age, and proceeded with that line of work all throughout my school years. Once I was able to, I became a counselor at a local day-camp. Both of these occupations have been something I enjoyed immensely, and are what sparked my interest in becoming an educator.
My main subject-specific interests are writing and linguistics, which has given me quite a thorough familiarity with the English language. This being my passion, it is also what I love to teach.

"You have a brain, let me teach you how to develop a mind."
Coming from three generations of university and high school professors and teaches, learning and teaching have been instilled into my bones. It was only natural for me, during my undergraduate studies at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, to start a tutoring service. The unique aspect both then and now is in my guarantee of positive, satisfactory, and concrete results, or the student/client pays no fee. Initially we agree upon a set of realistic, achievable, a... ... More
I have had a very positive tutoring experience with Odile. She is organized, attentive and thorough, and she gets great results! She is a native French speaker, so she's tremendous help with developing an authentic French accent. She also develops personalized lesson plans catered to your abilities and interests, and always makes sure to work on conversational skills. Very easy to reach by phone or email. Highly Recommended!

Shirin M. has far surpassed our expectations in a tutor. She is working with our 17-year old daughter in the very challenging subject of Calculus. Shirin had a tough assignment as a tutor because our daughter, who was taking an self-taught, online Calculus course through her high school, found out right before winter break that she had fallen close to two months behind in her class. This put her in the difficult position of catching up on more than what could be called a considerable amount of work before she would be allowed to re-enroll for the second semester. How fortunate we were that Shirin was available this very busy week of the year to offer our daughter 20 hours of individual tutoring (not to mention emotional support) for this daunting challenge! Shirin even took on this assignment while on her vacation week from her own full-time day job...wow! Shirin has been prompt to our sessions, professional, encouraging, patient, flexible with scheduling, and thorough in her tutoring. She knows not just how to do the problems herself, but how to teach our daughter to understand and solve the work on her own - this is a skill that not every tutor/teacher has. We are confident that between our daughter's determination to succeed and Shirin's tutoring, our daughter will achieve the goal of re-enrollment for her second semester.
