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 8 years for children ages 4 years old and up. I tutor elementary, middle, high school and adults. 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 t
he last several 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.

Lisa is a wonderful teacher. She always is on time and comes prepared with new lessons each week. She is very in tune with my level of Spanish and provides materials that I can handle and challenge me to grow. I am very pleased with her tutoring. I would recommend her highly as a teacher for anyone.

About Marie
I have been an educator for more than ten years. In that time, I've taught and tutored English, Language Arts and Spanish to students from elementary to PhD level. I also help students study for the SAT, ACT and TOEFL tests and coach students through the college and graduate school application process. I love teaching and learning. I am patient, enthusiastic and dedicated to my students.

My teaching philosophy can be summed up in a few words : learning should be fascinating, individualized and fun. Helen Keller said, “ A well-educated mind will always have more questions than answers.” My goal is to help my students ask the questions that will lead them to deeper understanding. The poet Mark Van Doreen said, “The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.” In our lessons, I will help you make discoveries that will inspire you
to keep learning.

When I’m not teaching, I love reading, exploring the California coast, writing poetry and singing loudly.

About Elodie
Bonjour! My name is Elo, and I want you to learn French from a native French speaker! I love cooking and listening to music, being with friends and watching movies.

It’s always a rewarding experience meeting new students and learning about their customs. I am very fun and open to help my future students to speak when they have difficulties with the pronunciation. When I teach, I give all my best to make sure my students understand the material and improve themselves during the lessons. I speak clearly in ways that make the lesson clear. My goal is that everyone experience success. It includes me also, I succeed when my students do :).

Shall we meet?

About Benedicta
I am interested in teaching because I want to help every kid get the chance to have a prosperous future and excel in school, even if that area is a struggle to them at first. I love helping others and believe a one-on-one teaching experience can optimize one's learning. I have reaped the benefits of one-on-one lessons in the past, and would like to benefit other people in the same way that my tutors have helped me!
