Academic Support-Tutoring Individual or in groups of 2 or 3. My sessions are customized to the curriculum and materials of the student’s Language Arts, English, Spanish, Social Studies or ESL program at his or her school. I tutor students in Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools, and local private schools.
I focus on building a positive, engaging relationship with my students so that they feel comfortable, positive, and successful. But, I teach them how to take responsibility for their learning and how meet the accountability of their teachers and classes. Then, I go through my 20 years of techniques and materials. I ultimately use methods that are the best for each student; everyone is different and needs a special blend of learning strategies.

I teach Spanish enrichment programs and camps for private groups and private schools. The most popular are Spanish for Little Learners- ages 4-6, KidzSpanish- ages 7-10, Speak Spanish Now– ages 11-14, and Spanish I Bootcamp: A Review.
