I have years of experience grading and reviewing papers. I thoroughly proofread for typographical errors, mistakes in grammar, style, and spelling.

Grammar is the set of structural rules governing the composition of clauses, phrases, and words in any given natural language. I was a teacher for 5 year and have been a tutor for over 3 years. I professional experience reviewing papers, projects & presentations for spelling and grammar.

About Monica U.

I have a Master's Degree in Education and 5 years of teaching experience. I have been a private tutor now for over 11 years for children ages 5 years old and up. I tutor elementary, middle, high school and adults. I can also tutor PDF Bookmarking 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 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.

For parents needing assistance with writing lesson plans, please let me know! I can work with you to come up with lesson ideas for your children during distance learning as well.

Monica is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and my son loved her from the first day. She has an easygoing demeanor and she makes math fun for him; she also sends a bunch of worksheets for him to work on in between. My son is entering 4th grade and I wanted him to work on some preview math skills before starting schoo. Monica was the perfect person I was looking for to work with him.

Monica was very clear and informative. There is always a plan to take what I learned to the next step at the next lesson. It is easy to communicate with her between lessons as well in case a date or time needs to be rescheduled.
