Overview

I have a Master's Degree in Education and 5 years of teaching experience. I have been a private tutor now for the past 5 years for children ages 4 years old and up. I tutor elementary, middle, high school and college students. I also have quite a few adults that I do proofreading for and assist with software programs.
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.

Great job. Great experience. Flexible with our schedule. Called me on the phone when I asked. Easy to deal with. We did one class on Go to Meeting and one over the phone. It doesn't matter what level you're at, Monica is your go-to trainer!

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.
