About

I like to conduct my lessons in fun ways that helps my students learn the materials faster because they are enjoying themselves. I create different activities for each topic being taught to keep them interested and it lets me know a student understands before moving on to the next topic. I add in time to review past topics so the information is fresh and they don't forget anything that was taught. These methods have allowed my students to retain information longer. If you are an adult learner, I find lessons, homework, and activities specific to the topic you are interested in. I begin from basic understandings in order to fill in gaps and to lay a great foundation for future learning.

I enjoy helping students regardless of age find their way to the answer rather than do the work for them. Seeing them realize that they know more is a great feeling. I enjoy seeing how happy they are when they realize they can do the work assigned to them and they enjoy the way I teach. I have had other jobs in corporate offices and non profits but I have found my calling and passion with tutoring

    I started improving English with Luci about six months ago.
    Since then, I have learned a lot from her because she is such a great teacher. She explains everything very clearly to you and puts a lot of effort into her work. She is dynamic, empathetic and knows how to understand your level from the beginning.
    Also, I think my English skills have been improved thanks to her because she has very good skills as a teacher.
    I recommend Luci 100% if you want to improve your level of English or, simply, prepare for an exam.

    Frequently asked questions

    Depending on the subject, I like to hear the student tell me about their strengths as well as weaknesses, because I think it's important to be positive and keep up a students confidence. Also, I like to do assessments because students tend to know more than they think or feel they do and it gives me a great starting point to be more effective.

    I currently hold a Bachelor of Arts from The Ohio State University and a Masters of Science from University of Cincinnati. Neither is in education, however I found my calling as a tutor/teacher. I have been tutoring in different subjects for the last two and a half years but have previous tutoring experience. I am a former Foreign Language Teacher to preschoolers and Kindergarteners, languages include Spanish and Mandarin. Before that I was a Homeschool teacher for a few years. From the foundation I layed for my son during Kindergarten through 2nd grade, his reading level has steadily increased each year, and as of this year he is a 4th grader with a 12th grade reading level.  I have also taught English as a second language before but recently completed my 120-Hour TESOL/TEFL certification. I currently conduct hour lessons through Zoom.

    I had tutored elementary school subjects and Mandarin after graduating college but went into corporate & non-profit organizations. My son needed a unique teaching approach and I became his Homeschool teacher and fell in love with teaching, building fun curriculum, and witnessing his achievements. Later, I was able to obtain a full time teaching position as a Foreign language teacher and I restarted tutoring at the same time. I enjoy the profession and seeing kids reach their academic goals. 

    I have worked with students as young as two years old and currently have preschool students, elementary students, and high school students. I have worked with students with ADHD at various ages and can work with those attributes assigned to the disorder. I have also worked with adults with Reading fluency and in English as a Second Language. 

    I was unable to continue with a family for about 9 months as I was healing from a car accident. They found another tutor for that time, but I was nervous I would not get to work with them again. They contacted me recently to see if I could work with them again and I said of course! They could have continued with the tutor they found after me but they really enjoyed how I helped their children and I am happy to be able to return.

    I would advise you to find someone passionate about teaching or tutoring in any subject. Also that they can show they stay up to date with new practices, techniques, theories, and activities.
