"Mrs. Jean, my teacher, is the name my students have given me."
I very much enjoy teaching ESL to students who wish to either improve their English or learn a new language from the beginning. During my ten years of teaching and tutoring English, I have had students of all levels of proficiency from survival to advanced. Also, I have taught students of all ages, the youngest being ten and the oldest was a seventy-nine year-old student from Germany. I employ many different teaching activities in my classes; namely, games, written assignments and conversation. The understanding and use of idioms comprise a large part of my teaching curriculum since Americans ... More
My son has had such a wonderful learning experience with Ms. Y. His confidence level has risen, as he stated that he learned more in one hour than he did in an entire school quarter. My son looks forward to continuing his tutoring sessions with Ms. Y now and in the future.
I would highly recommend Ms.Y.

"Learning is easy if you have a right tutor!"
Understanding concepts is extremely important for students to learn well. My goal is to review Algebra 1 concepts such as: number systems, variables, expressions vs equations, polynomials and factoring, linear equations and inequalities, system/quadratic/radical/rational equations, functions and graphing analysis, trigonometric ratios, probability, and statistics.
The above seemingly independent subtopics have many intrinsic relationships. With my many years of experience, I know exactly where typical difficulties are and have developed ways to help student connect missing dots and master all ... More
Lorraine H. knows her SAT prep! That was evident from the first phone call and tutoring session with our daughter. She is a great student and hard worker at the Calculus level but her SAT math scores didn't demonstrate that. Lorraine has come in and after only three sessions, our daughter is already more confident and is gaining the test-taking skills she needs. Lorraine has been very flexible on scheduling, easy to reach and has developed a positive working relationship with her student in a short time. All good stuff!

"Native French teacher for all ages; Adobe Creative Suite instructor"
I am fully bilingual in English/French because I was born and raised in an American family in a French environment and culture in North Africa. I have taught French from Kindergarten through 8th grade for 5 years and am certified for K-12th grade. My fluency and knowledge of French vernacular is up to date, for those students (traveling young people/adults) who just want to learn conversational French to assimilate in the culture as needed.
I am also fully qualified to teach Adobe Photoshop ... ... More
"Certified & highly qualified math tutor - grades 5-10."
My name is Roger and I'm a former 24 year Wall Street professional that has moved into a 2nd career of teaching and tutoring kids that are struggling with math.
