Certified teacher with 15+ years classroom experience in social sciences, ESL, Spanish, and writing willing to tutor online using video chat.

About the lesson

I have a degree in Secondary Education specializing in Social Science and in History. I have graduate level credits in ESL to gain an endorsement, and I have over 20 undergraduate credits in Spanish. In addition, I have taught and trained writing skills, test taking skills, and study skills. I have experience with gifted students and struggling students, as well as students with disabilities.
I work with students to create an environment where they are successful and learning. Students learn in many ways, so I adapt to each student's learning style and strengths. I have experience in adapting lessons to multiple abilities and levels. This personal learning model is ideal for individual tutoring.

About Hilary

I have been teaching in public schools for 15 years, and have tutored at various times in these years as well. Over these years I have taught thousands of students and tutored a dozen others.
I have helped students who were not passing classes with other teachers to improve their grades and skills in order to pass. I have helped ELL students to learn to write formal essays, in English. Several of these students were able to transition into non-ELL classes, and even into AP (college level) courses due to skills I assisted them in gaining. I have helped several students with disabilities improve their overall writing, study, and academic skills in order to be more successful in school.

Details

Our first lesson will be an introduction to your needs and skills so I can best determine how to help you. The introduction is free. We will then meet again to discuss the plan I have developed, this will be $10. If we agree that we will fit and I can help you, we will continue at my normal per hour rate.
