...I always try to use the most proper word in a sentence, not just a word that, while correct, isn't the best word to fill the gap. I tried to instill this belief in the students I tutored and taught. Moreover, I taught them that it wasn't just a matter of knowing a synonym, but going back and looking at the etymology of the word, and the word's possibly numerous and different meanings.

...I have several workbooks and lesson plans that will be individualized and specialized to your child's needs. I can also cater my lessons to go along with what your child is learning in class that week. I am more than happy to work with your child's teacher and contact them regularly to follow up.
