I have taught English for 10+ years! I find that teaching ESL students is rewarding. I am currently teaching ESL students online. I encourage students to try everything from pronunciation and dictation on their own. By doing this I am encouraging them and empowering confidence. I also use dialogue to helps students understand how to respond to questions and the flow of conversation. We use visual aids like flash cards and dry erase boards to communicate ideas such as (bananas, birds etc).

It is with great pleasure I introduce myself Priscilla. I am willing to help any and all students with concepts, methods and ways to enrich your learning journey. I have been a tutor for many subjects from Chemistry, advanced Biology and many other subjects. Teaching has been one of my strong abilities. I have taught many of my fellow colleagues and students while working as a tutor. My goal is to aid the student in understanding complex ideas and make them simple for anyone to understand. I have worked with special needs adults in a classroom setting of about 20 and helped them with spelling, grammar and math skills. I would do individual lesson planning based on their capabilities and make it fun.

My passion is seeing a student or anyone I am explaining a concept to have the face light up when they understood the idea. This is so much better then any compensation I can ever receive. I look forward to have you allow me to teach you.

Champion Learning Center

I was a tutor for an ESL high school student and another high school student for Math. It was an amazing opportunity to see my students start at very low scores and once I finished with them succeed to 90 and above averages. One of them I was able to get in contact with many years later and she completed high school with honors and wanted to go to college.

Priscilla was one of the best teachers my kids ever had. She was patiant and held high standards for them all while keeping the work light and entertaining. My kids ages 4, and 5) saw a new light in learning new things and learned to actually read within a week worth of her services. Her dedication, strategies, and bright ideas are something that you wouldnt regret exposing to your children. Take my word for it and hire this woman 😃

It's not easy to get a tutor that has patience and understanding. Prissila would travel to my home and stay extra hours of tutoring for me if I needed. She is truly a dedicated individual. I would recommend her to the best because she is the best as well.
