Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I always like to get to know my students a bit before working with them: what do they excel at, what subjects do they enjoy most, and which do they feel they need some extra support in. Then, I will come up with a personalized plan to target the students needs.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a masters in childhood education from CUNY Hunter College in Manhattan. I have been a classroom teacher for the past ten years in both Manhattan and Palm Beach County in both public and private schools. I have also been tutoring students for ten years, ranging in ages from 3 to 14.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
I typically charge $70/hour but am open to negotiations.
