Tutors of Marin
Columbia University-trained educator with classroom teaching and one-on-one tutoring experience. I tutor elementary, middle, and high school students in the Bay Area.
I strive to empower students with the academic, social, and organizational skills they need to become independent lifelong learners. I believe that children posses complete competence, limitless potential, and the innate ability to construct their own meaning of their experiences. Therefore invite my students to meet their goals by building on their questions and interests, engaging them in problem-solving and critical thinking, and applying those skills to real-life situations. I provide such learning experiences by tailoring instruction to the child's individual strengths and learning styles.
Allen was my daughter’s first and second grade teacher, and he will always stand in my mind as one of the most dedicated and caring educators she has ever have. Allen instantly bonds with his students in ways I’ve rarely seen, and I speak as an educator myself. He was so meaningful to my daughter’s early education that we have stayed in touch over the years. During this time I’ve had the chance to see him interact with new generations of students, as well as with my own growing daughter. He is extraordinarily sensitive to the unique needs of each child, using teaching methods that engage all aspects of learning: academic, creative, personal, and social. He has a gift with children and a commitment to finding ways of making every subject exciting no matter how challenging for the student. I wholeheartedly recommend him as a tutor.
