I am a professional educator with a passion for working with students. I believe that each student can learn, it just takes patience and hard work. For me working with a student is really a partnership between the parents, student and tutor. We all need to work together in an open and honest relationship. Communication is key. In order for me to know how to best work with students, I need to better understand their study habits and the environment in which the studying takes place. With this information, I am better able to make concrete suggestions on how the student may improve. Working with a tutor is just that - working with the student; the tutor is not a crutch. My job is to explain and clarify in a more effective manner the issues which are troubling the student. I am dedicated to assist in the learning process and to challenge the student to grow into a more confident learner and thinker.
World Languages are my passion. I have been very fortunate to have lived, worked and studied abroad in Paris, Geneva and Mexico City. My work experience in schools is varied from classroom teacher to Assistant Head of School/Principal. I have also worked in admissions marketing, college counseling. I understand and appreciate the value of an excellent education. While tutoring, I dedicate myself to the student and their success.
I look forward to working with you as partners as we help your student become an independent and hardworking student and a critical thinker qualities that are and will be needed for all students today and in the future.
