Personal Description:

With a Ph.D. in English Literature and having taught at the university level for several years, I have a strong academic background. I also bring a wide variety of experience to my teaching: as well as spending time in various parts of the US, I have travelled extensively, including living with a family in France between high school and college, working for a year in New Zealand, and taking the Trans-Siberian from Nakhodka to Moscow. I have raised two children, and supported them through every stage of their education to their college graduations, so I am very aware of the challenges facing today’s students.

Tutoring Experience:

I have worked one-on-one with students at every level from primary grades to post-graduate. At the university level, I taught classes of up to 30 students; many of my students came to me for individual help. While my children were at school, I volunteered for a local literacy program, where we had our own assigned tutees each year. During my seven years with this program, I tutored students ages 10 - 18, and loved helping these young people to become more confident in their abilities.

Tutoring Approach:

The advantage of one-on-one tutoring is that one can focus on each student’s specific goals and needs. I strive to be sensitive to my students’ particular characters, and adjust my approach accordingly. I would sum up my tutoring approach as flexible, very much geared to the individual.
