ExperienceMy favorite subjects to tutor are those in which the student gains confidence and makes great strides academically. As a tutor, it is important that I have good rapport from the start. Once I have earned a student's trust I provide guidance and positive reinforcement with the goal of helping them maintain focus. It is essential to have a good relationship with the adult guardian to ensure the student also has their support. I have taught for 36 years, grades 5-6 in Arizona and Massachusetts. I provided after school tutoring for students every day. In addition, I was a substitute teacher for grades K-8 for four years. My tutoring sessions focused on Reading and Math in preparation for the AIMS test. I have also tutored Writing and English to ESL students. I completed a bachelor's in Elementary Education at Boston University. I enjoy historical fiction, playing the piano, travel, and going to the beach. I like visiting locations with interesting cultures and architecture, which is why my favorite destination is Italy. I've had the pleasure of swimming in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. My experience as a mother of two and serving my community has enabled me to be an excellent mentor to my students.
