About Monica
I have a Master's Degree in Education and 5 years of teaching experience. I have been a private tutor now for the past 6 years for children ages 4 years old and up. I tutor elementary, middle, high school and college students. I have also tutored quite a few adults in Excel, Word, Proofreading Papers ad other software programs. I can also tutor PDF Bookmakring or PDF Bookmark documents for you,
I am familiar with common core and school standards. I would be more than happy to speak with you or your child's teacher regarding their needs.

*** Lesson Details ***
While I have extremely high
expectations for all my students, I adjust my approach for each student in order to best serve him or her; for many of my students, for example, I design specific programs centered around goals, strengths, and areas for improvement. I am very familiar with different learning styles. I am very flexible in scheduling and meeting my student’s needs. So far for the last 4 years, I have been very successful in one-on-one tutoring and have managed to pull many students from grades of D's & F's to A's and B's.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Workbooks, flashcards, journals, lessons, projects, etc

*** Specialties ***
Reading, Spelling, Phonics, Math, English, ADD/ ADHD

I will have additional availability from 12/21-1/4/17 during the daytime due to my FT job being closed.

About Jenny
Hi. I'm Jenny.
I am Korean and I used to teach Korean language at high school for 5years.
I graduated from university in Korea and my major was Korean language education.
So, I think I have a lot of knowledge about Korean language and know well how to teach the students.
Also, I'm very interested in teaching Korean to foreigners and hope to be a friend with someone who is interested in Korean or Korean culture.
I can teach you not only the language but also culture like food, drama, history and kpop, if you want.
My English ability is intermediate or advanced, so I can teach and expla
in it in English as well.
I really appreciate your interest in Korea and it makes me to have a pride of my country.
