Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I am a teacher on sabbatical who knows by experience that students can greatly benefit from extra help after school when needed. I believe that every student can "get there" on his/her own time with the proper support based on her/his learning style. I have taught in the Bay Area for 18 years (The Girls' Middle School, Harker, Merryhill, Kennedy). I taught 4th-8th grade science, Middle School Math, Life Science, and Physical Science. I am also a fluent French speaker. As a teacher, I know what is expected of students in the classroom and getting the right answer is not what is most important; the process to get there is what matters. A good tutor should guide and encourage, not tell. A good tutor should be able to use appropriate analogies to simplify difficult concepts and ask questions that make her student see how the concepts apply in other situations. Basically, true learning and understanding happens when the child is able to see how the content studied relates to real life. I can help your child achieve this; I am this good tutor...
