My name is Mercy and I am a well-rounded and experienced tutor.
I have over 7 years of experience working with children that range from severely handicapped, autistic, remedial, pre-college level and honors students ages 3 through 21. I truly enjoy working with children and desire to fulfill a life-long career in this field.
What separates me from many other tutors? My distinctive quality is how I implement creative tools based on the needs of the child. For example, if a child is a visual learner I set up visual tools such as board display, graphics, art, etc. to generate interest and a more lasting impression of the material that is being learned.
My background in education is that I have an AA in Liberal Arts and Sciences as well as a BA in Business Administration. So, I have knack for organization and communication as well.
It is standard of mine to excel in communicating with the child and the parent about the growth process overtime. Tutoring for me is a commitment and I liken it to planting a seed - it needs to be watered, brightened up, and well nourished in solid ground.
My services are based in the West LA area at a standard rate of $20 for the first 15 hours and thereafter $25 per hour. I would be more than willing to tutor outside of these areas, but a mileage fee will have to be included.
