I believe in tailoring my tutoring style to each student and subject, as everyone learns differently. I also believe in open communication: if something is not working, let’s see how it can be fixed! I recently helped an ESL student gain fluency in under 8 weeks by creating a curriculum based on her interests and strengths.

I’m passionate about helping students improve their grades and confidence. I strive to understand each student's learning style and adapt my teaching accordingly. I've worked as an English tutor for years in many settings - from tutoring English in Madrid, leading small groups, to teaching English to autistic students.

I connect to students by modifying instruction and explaining English concepts clearly. One of my students increased their score from 33% to 90% on math tests, while advancing two reading levels. I also work with special needs students, using multi-sensory strategies to enhance their learning and break down instructions into more manageable tasks.

There is a significant proportion of the US population that don't speak English as their native language. Around 10% of children in the average US classroom are English Language Learners (ELLs) with a huge variation from state to state. That figure is closer to 1% in states like West Virginia and Vermont, while in California or Texas it rises to around 20%. In line with the 'No Child Left Behind' initiative, our tutors are committed to ensuring every one of these students gets the education they deserve. Mastering English as a second language allows them to prosper in every other part of their academic studies.
From recognizing English words to understanding the intricacies of American slang, we'll put together a personalized lesson plan that mirrors your learning style and cultural background.
And it's not just children that we're able to help. Many adults looking to kick-start their careers or acclimatize to a new country have benefited from the support of our experienced tutors. You're never too old to learn a new skill.

Gooroo has cared about the success of my child every step of the way — from ordinary test prep to the more challenging time of helping him catch up with schoolwork after suffering concussions. Gooroo cares and wants their students to succeed. Gooroo is a first rate test prep and tutoring company, but they have the time to personalize and care deeply about each student, always going the extra mile. They’re the kind of people you want educating your child.
