Is your middle-school child struggling with homework? Does your high school student need help preparing for the SAT? Want to help your child improve her grades but don't know how?
I am a private tutor currently seeking new learners in the peninsula area (from San Mateo to Mountain View). I'm a college graduate from UC Davis with degrees in Sociology and Psychology and I have extensive experience working with young learners spanning middle school and high school. I have volunteered one year with the Redwood City Project READ program as a drop-in homework instructor as well as a one-on-one tutor for 6 different learners. Currently I work part-time as a tutor with College Track, a local organization that provides academic help for students that are the first to attend college in their families. My students encompass a variety of learning needs including English as a second language, gifted students and students struggling with their coursework. I am committed to providing a tutoring experience that will deliver real results and teach your child the basic skills to succeed in any class.
My skills include:
*Explaining complex concepts using easy-to-understand terms
*Working with students ages 12 to 18
*Developing action plans based on students' and educators' academic goals
*Communicating with parents and teachers to update them on student progress
*Coordinating schedules with students to provide weekly tutoring sessions
*Working effectively with students with diverse learning needs and cultural backgrounds
I am available to tutor:
*Algebra I and II
*English - Writing and Reading
*Homework Help & Study Skills
My schedule is open as follows:
M-T 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
F 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Sat. 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM
If you are interested please send me an e-mail including information about the student: such as age, class schedule, subjects desired and any information regarding special learning needs or meeting accommodations. I will get back to you promptly to schedule a first meeting. There is no fee for the first visit, and thereafter, recurring weekly visits can be arranged for the rate of $20 dollars an hour. Thank you and I look forward to getting in touch with you!
