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

· Latin · Online
Dan has worked with my 11th grade son, who has several learning disabilities, over the past year. He is patient, uses humor with my son and keeps him on task. He also communicates with me whenever needed. I would highly recommend Dan, and plan to keep him to help my son with Latin II as well!

· Russian · In studio
Dan taught my 2nd-year intensive Russian course during the summer of 2013. Despite the sometimes grueling nature of studying Russian for 6 hours a day, 5 days per week, the time never dragged during Dan's lessons, which were always structured, yet flexible, while also being both fun and productive. All in all, no easy feat! Additionally, as someone who attained a superior level of fluency, Dan was incredibly inspiring to the rest of us, but also very relatable, with a killer sense of humor. His example led me to pursue Russian not only as an ungrad, but now as a grad student as well.

· Chess · In home
Dan was my children’s Chess coach for 2 years. He was always punctual and well-prepared with a plan for the day’s lesson. He was able to evaluate each child's strengths and weaknesses accurately and tailor the lessons accordingly. He was responsive to my input and suggestions and incorporated them into his lessons.
