"Narrative Art Lessons"
I have been working as a freelance illustrator of children's books for 15 years. I've also had experience teaching at every age level, either as a private tutor or college instructor (Syracuse University). As a working artist, I am especially qualified to teach students serious about going into the arts. I am good about recognizing a student's weaknesses and work closely with them to improve.

"Looking to enhance learner in acheiving his or her goals"
As a special education teacher of thirty four years I've had the opportunity to teach through a variety of different subjects. I've taught self contained and as an inclusion teacher, providing students with the philosophy that they can obtain whatever they set their mind to, by believing in themselves and taking the necessary steps in accomplishing their goals. Students should be organized and value the opportunity to seek answers they are searching for through a multimedia approach. This sho... ... 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.

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.

As a non native teacher of the language and... ... More
"Carolyn - Mathematics Tutor - Grades K-10"
I am a teacher and a tutor with many years of experience. I taught in elementary school, middle school and a community college.
I teach using all the basic methods. I go back to the rules of numbers and how they work. I try to build a strong foundation so that the student can "understand" their work and not just memorize it. I am very patient with all my students. If they do not understand a concept I will repeat it many times until it is understood.... ... More
