"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.

"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
