Academic English tutor with over 20 years experience in the profession.

Methodology

I adapt and adjust to the specific academic needs of each student. A needs assessment activity is the beginning of a creative and innovative exchange to make a difference in the life of a student. After a deliberate conversation, the activity begins, develops and learning is activated.

Background

I am an English teacher, author and presenter with over 20 years of teaching in public schools, private schools and an adjunct professor of English composition writing in New York, Florida and Puerto Rico. I have been a difference-maker in the lives of thousands of students.

Rates

Transportation Fee : $10
Rate for online lessons : $25/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $22
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $20

Details

It is $25 per hour. This is with a minimum of two hours per week. If the student cancels after a set hour agreed, he or she is responsible for the cost of the class. If the student lives in Orlando , there is an extra $10 charged per travel day. This may change according to how far the home is from Kissimmee. I prefer to teach via ZOOM. I have my own ZOOM account.
