Experienced, Results-Oriented Language Tutor

I have worked with a variety of students on social studies curriculum at all grade levels. I am intimately familiar with the material so I can focus on how best to convey the information to you or your child.

This could include visual aids, making flashcards, supplementary materials/worksheets, practice tests, kinesthetic/auditory/visual strategies, and other creative means of helping each of my students achieve mastery of the material.
