Teacher On Wheels
I work with all levels and all skills. I also work with average skills students and people who struggle to learn through traditional methods. I work full time at a school. I have been teaching for 29 years
I like transforming unsure, hesitant-about-my-skills students into confident, successful, happy-with-my-progress students. I work exclusively with 12-18 year olds.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
After the initial meeting with student (and parent, if it's a minor), I assess his/her needs and strengths and weaknesses. We developed a plan regarding frequency, intensity and goals.
We meet at student’s home, at the Public library or we Skype. We adjust once we figure out the speed on which each student can work and learn efficiently.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
College Education: Buenos Aires University (Argentina) and numerous teaching courses in the US and Spain. I have worked with different ages (12-75). I use different techniques tailored to each student. We share a "cyber-notebook" wehre we have all of our notes organized and where I can post links, graphs, homework and reminders.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
Lessons have different prices according to location, length, level, and frequency.
How did you get started teaching?
I always wanted to be a teacher. It was a natural progression. A real passion. I always say, I hope I'm a teacher in my next life. :)
What types of students have you worked with?
I work with all types of students ages 12-adults.
I work with average students, kids with attention issues, and my methods are well received by students who struggle with traditional settings and methods.
I also have many adult students that want or need to learn.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Meet with him/her. See if you see yourself working with that person, if she/he knows how to teach. Check references.
Always trust your instinct!
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
They should think about what do they struggle with. Is it grammar? is it pronunciation? is it memorizing vocabulary?
How do you learn? By speaking? By reading? By playing? By using it?
If you don't know what your learning style is, we will figure it out together.
