Modern Language Instructor and all-around tutor in NYC teaches all age ranges

Methodology

Some of the things which allow my work to stand out, is the age range of students I have had the privelage of tutoring. This has given me the tools to prepare students/clients of all ages for success. In addition the wide range of subjects I am comfortable with and have had experience teaching is unique and families can hire one tutor for multiple subjects.

Background

I adore teaching and love that private tutoring affords be the opportunity to work with students individually. I usually work with school age students tutoring test preparation, extra after school tutoring or academic support. I am particularly proud of helping a middle school aged girl who was struggling with Chinese language classes and was considering changing classes,but with my services she gained more confidence and is now preparing for the advanced Chinese language class.
