About Gerry

I've worked with students of all ages consistently since obtaining my Master's degree.
I have a preferential textbook for composition including persuasive essay writing.
I follow the student's materials in other areas. Students have to find their motivation primarily. Positive reinforcements and the natural fun of success and satisfied curiosity are paramount concerns to tackle any learning obstacles. I use my degree in psychology and English to make learning easy.
