There have been four lessons so far, and I can already see improvement. Cecilia has shown great patience and a fine sense of humor as she attempts to teach not only the Italian language but also the culture and spirit of Italy. I highly recommend her.

My profile title should give you a pretty good idea of what I like about my Country (Italy, obviously).
My most recent tutoring experiences included
- an ex-police officer, now bodyguard for a VIP in New York City. His love for Italy included cars, dogs and food (he end up going to Bologna, my hometown, for a 1 month course to learn how to cook, and indeed he did, just ask his wife!),
- a female firefighter (high ranking) in love with Italian Art, small Italian towns, good wine and Itali... ... More
I have been working with Mr. Timothy for about two months and I've made a lot of progress. I have decided to take Japanese independently, in place of Spanish in school, and Mr. Timothy has agreed to be my teacher for the next two years to facilitate that.
The lessons are always really active - he brings in media, other sources, and offers relevant Japanese culture points that go along with the lesson I'm studying. The books he suggested are well written and organized, and he clearly has experience figuring out the proper pace for the course.
I am attempting to finish 3-4 academic years of Japanese in 2 years, and with Mr. Timothy's help, I definitely think this is possible. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is serious about learning Japanese.

"Experienced High School Japanese Teacher"
I started my Japan journey in 1990 when I went to Japan to teach English. I ended up staying for eight years, getting my Masters degree from the University of Hawaii in Asian Studies, and becoming fluent in the language in the process. After returning to the States in 2001 I taught Japanese for two years at a public elementary school in South Carolina and have been teaching Japanese for the past eleven years at a private high school in Westchester. As a non native teacher of the language and... ... More
"Narrative Art Lessons"

I am fluent in multiple methods including: oil paint, acrylic, watercolor, charcoal, pen & ink, a... ... More
Kristin did a terrific job helping to prepare my son for a proficiency exam. She was responsive, punctual, nice and organized. She was willing to receive scans over the internet and work on precisely the information my son needed. She didn't skimp on time and followed up each session with a helpful report. I recommend Kristin highly.

Cristina worked with my daughter on Microbiology. She was very thorough, with excellent communication skills. She even drove to her college in the pouring rain to meet with her.

"BS and MS in Chemistry, 4 Years' Experience Tutoring and Teaching"
I've been tutoring my fellow students since I was in elementary school, and in one extreme case, I helped one of my friends understand calculus well enough to bring his grade up from a projected F to a C+ in a third of a semester. I'm a graduate with a B.S. from SUNY Buffalo and an M.S. from SUNY Binghamton, both in Chemistry with specializations in Physical, Inorganic, and Analytical Chemistry. I plan on getting my PhD with a teaching certification, and my year of tutoring experience in addi... ... More
