We all love Ms. Karen. She is very patient, knowledgeable and knows how to get a child interested in studying. My son is bilingual and he struggled with English. Ms. Karen made a wonder with his reading and understanding English words. She also helped a lot with his math. I strongly recommend Ms. Karen.

Paul was a tremendous help to my son. He was always accessible even when he was very busy and on weekends.
He worked around our schedule and charged appropriately for his time. I recommend Paul very highly for math or Calculus. My son struggles with math but has managed to do very well in school. There are some teachers who move too quickly for him to absorb the information. Paul was very patient and explained each step in each math process for my son and then reinforced it by having him do the problems and make corrections. My son loved Paul's approach and was very happy to work with him. My son passed his course. Without Paul, that would never have happened. I only wish we had found Paul sooner. Thank you Paul!!

She also explains everything thoroughly, allowing her students to understand each subject they're taught. She's very easy to reach by e-mail and is also very flexible with scheduling. Tracey is also very nice and my experience with her as my tutor was great.

"Successful, Experienced, Bilingual Reading Specialist, ESOL Certified"
Spanish is an easy language to acquire, given the proper tools and study habits.
I studied Spanish in both high school and college, and excelled in the coursework. In high school, I was in enriched classes, and watched movies, wrote reports, and did presentations completely in Spanish.
In college, I studied the language as well as literature and excelled due to the strong foundation my four years in high school have provided me.
I currently teach a high number of English-Language Learners (ELL) and communicate with parents in both Spanish and English. I plan on taking the ESOL Praxis and ... More
