I worked with Milagros in anticipation of a trip to Spain. Before studying with Milagros I had done some self study and worked with a different teacher. Milagros quickly assessed my level of Spanish and pushed forward at just the right pace for me. By the time I left for Spain I was able to communicate well enough to ask directions, negotiate with a shop owner and generally get around in some parts of Spain where little English was spoken. She introduced me to wonderful Spanish literature at a level I could read and enjoy. Milagros was always both warm and professional. She was completely reliable in keeping appointments. She provided an array of materials that were extremely helpful. I highly recommend her as a teacher.

Carmen has agreed to tutor my 19 month old daughter in Spanish. This is difficult because we do not speak Spanish in the household. Carmen has shown to be flexible and works with my daughter at her level.
Carmen is very professional and always timely. She provides feedback and we strongly recommend her.

Sheila was very helpful to my son, who struggled with Chemistry. She had a calm and organized approach to the subject matter, making it seem less daunting. In a short period of time, she helped bring my son's grade up two levels. I would highly recommend her.

We continue to see improvement with Alexander and he gets used to school schedules again.
Lucia continued working with my son after the summer break, getting back into the study habits was difficult for him, but Lucia continues to maintain a constant level of assertiveness to gain compliance.
Lucia worked well with my son who can at times be less than attentive. Her methods kept him focused and he enjoyed the session. She was firm in her demeanor and he made good progress for the first lesson. We intend to continue with Lucia for his tutoring needs.
Week 2 - Seeing improvement as the relationship continues to develop between Lucia and my son. While this process is not quick, I think Lucia is up to the task of dealing with a little boy who does not always focus well. Her methodology seems to be working well.
Week 3 - Continue to see incremental improvements, Lucia works hard with my son, sometimes he is not always as attentive as he needs to be. It is obvious that Lucia cares about the progress made and is interested in his progress.
week 4 - Lucia continues to explore alternative methods and techniques to apply to my son's tutoring. We are seeing positive results for the continued efforts and Lucia's willingness to approach the situation with different methods. So far so good!
Week 5 - Lucia has used various techniques to break up the session into segments that my son can focus on, the results are improvements in his confidence and he is now sounding out words and not guessing.

I have worked with many students diagnosed with ADD or ADHD. I try to involve each student as thoroughly as possible in the learning process, paying particular attention to the emotions of the student with whom I am working. By providing a structured and predictable learning environment I help my students to achieve greater success when learning.
For students with ADD or ADHD I also break down large tasks and pieces of information into more manageable sections so that they do not become overwhelmed. By breaking tasks down, students are able to achieve greater confidence and allev ... More
