As a certified English teacher for the past 8 years, I believe learning should be personalized. I will work to identify your child's literacy strengths and needs to design an individualized learning experience. To engage your child, I will make learning relevant and relatable.
Working as a classroom teacher, it is very infrequent I get to work with students one-on-one for long periods of time. However, with tutoring, it's much more personalized to meet the student's specific literacy needs. I enjoy this aspect of tutoring because it's easier for students to make learning strides in quicker periods of time.
very Knowledgeable and patient.. works well if student , lucky to find her and can’t say enough good things
During the summer of 2018, Olivia worked with my son for three hours a week. He has a poor relationship with reading but Olivia selected highly interesting books for him to read. She took into account his interests and reading level to help him grow as a reader. My son looked forward to these weekly sessions because of Olivia's positivity and warmth.
Olivia tutored my son for a year, helping him specifically with the 8th grade ELA exam. With her well-crafted lessons, my son passed with a 3 for the first time ever!
I worked with Olivia for the past three years. She is professional, knowledgeable and kind. Her deep care for student growth and dedication to her pedagogy is rare. I would highly recommend working with Olivia.
