"Effective English, ESL/ESOL, and TOEFL Tutor"
The area of tutoring English as a second language (ESL) involves teaching and aiding the student in all aspects of the English language, including reading, writing, and conversational use. An ESL student's primary native language is one other than English and usually seeks additional tutelage to further understand other material that utilizes the English language. Depending on what each student's native language is, tutoring ESL may have varied paces. Students whose native tongue is a romance language will often have the easiest time in picking up English due to the languages' similarities, wh ... More
I can't say enough about John. He's just remarkable. He's pulled our son's grades up, our son really likes him (very important) and he even gave me a session so i could understand what my son is doing enough to help him, too.

We enjoy working with Giovanna. She is patient, knowledgeable and very flexible with her schedule. She is easy to get a hold of and understands how to teach some one to make it 'click'. We highly recommend her.

I have been working with him to improve my critical and analytical thinking skills for the GRE analytical writing.
He proofreads my essays thoroughly and makes perceptive comments on them so that I can learn more from the practice.
Besides, he is willing to answer any questions that I may get stuck on and to try his best to help me understand.
He can perceive quickly what I have trouble with and then suggests an effective approach on how to fix it.
I am always impressed by his insightful thoughts and his ability to explain clearly something profound, recondite.
His lesson really is enlightening and does broaden my horizons.
I have great admiration for his teaching skills and his profundity.
Quite evidently, he is by far the best tutor I've ever met!

"Inspirational and Friendly Math, Science, and English Tutor"
As a tutor, our job is normally secondary to the teacher's. The teacher's job is to cover a certain amount of material in a given amount of time, making sure all students do their best. The tutor's job is to go over this material with usually just one student and further elaborate on this material. Sometimes, tutors realize that a particular student may be incredibly intelligent but may not organize notes well or know exactly what to material to focus on. That is where tutors can teach study skills. Study skills may include knowing how to read and outline technical textbooks or speed study Pow ... More
