My primary focus as a homework coach and tutor, is helping students become better organized and improve their time management skills, so that they get ALL of their homework done on time. I spend time communicating with teachers and parents so that everyone is on the same page and knows what needs to be done and when it is due.Students often tell me that they do not have anything to do. I try to help them see that this is not true. There is always something that they can be doing to become a better student, to learn more, be better prepared for tests and succeed in school.Waiting until the last minute to finish assignments and study for tests can be stressful. Not getting good grades can be frustrating. Students often rebel against their parents. They don’t think that the parent knows what the student needs to do. I help organize a student’s time and stay on top of to do lists that we create. The result is a better, happier and more productive student and a happier family. History Established in 2000. When I was young, I spent my days at my Greek grandmother’s house. We only spoke Greek. I learned English when I started kindergarten. As a teen-ager, I spent my summers with my family in Greece. I worked as a wind surf and water skiing instructor for tourists from all over Europe and became very interested in learning languages. In high school, I studied Spanish. Since high school, I have studied German, Swedish, Japanese, Spanish, and Italian.I started tutoring in the year 2000 when a fellow classmate in an Algebra class at the College of Marin suggested that I became a tutor. Following her suggestion, I started tutoring for a local tutoring agency. At the same time, I was also teaching English as a second language for the Canal Alliance. The following year, I transferred to U.C.L.A. where I received a B.A. in Comparative Literature with an emphasis on Spanish Literature. I also received a minor in Italian Literature.
