Mary is extremely helpful. She knows a lot about garments construction and what will and will not work. I have worked on my collections on my own time and showed her my progress with the last two sessions and she always has comments, praise, and suggestions, which is really encouraging. Mary also knows a lot about machine maintenance and has helped me to both dust and oil my machine. We have so far worked on construction with shine finished fabrics, sewing points, trimming and grading, boning, and elastic. Next we are planning to work with collars and hand stitching. Again, she is very knowledgeable with a lot of resources and is super friendly!

"Biology and Sewing: I teach with hands-on methods"
I love teaching biology, and incorporate current findings into the basic facts. I have taught high school biology for 4 years, and love doing hands-on science. For instance, when learning about the cellular respiration, I teach it from a human being standpoint, a plant standpoint, and a microorganism standpoint, and talk about the consequences in each organism if it doesn't work properly. ...

Hi! I'm a current nursing school student who loves to teach!

My daughter has some serious health issues that have made it necessary for her to be a cyber student. After two months of doing cyber school on her own, she was frustrated and despondent. We needed some tutoring help fast and were thrilled to find Barbara through WyzAnt. She lives close by and is a retired biology teacher from my daughter's school who shares her love of horses. Initially, my daughter's ability to do school work was erratic and unpredictable, resulting in some last minute cancellations of her tutoring sessions. Barbara was very gracious and understanding of her situation. She has been able to work with my daughter's mood and energy swings and gently guide and support her academic progress. Barbara came with us to meet the cyber teachers and quickly mastered the cyber learning environment. She is very enthusiastic about biology and makes learning about it fun. I am a biological scientist myself and have been very favorably impressed by the depth of her knowledge in this field. In addition to being a great biology teacher, Barbara has been very flexible and accommodating with scheduling her visits to our home. She is warm and personable and has an upbeat, can do attitude that helps lifts everyone's spirits. She supports my daughter emotionally as well as academically and is genuinely interested in her well being. In short, she is as close to perfect for this job as anyone could possibly be. My daughter would not be where she is now academically if she had not had Barbara's help. I feel very fortunate and grateful to have found such a gem of a tutor.

"Ms. Deb's Delightful Tutoring Service"
Do you like puzzles? Reading is a process that is like putting together a puzzle; after all the pieces have been arranged in such an order, then the BIG PICTURE makes TOTAL SENSE!!!
On their own, the pieces of reading are challenging to understand; however, once the reading process is completed, then the meaning is understood completely.
I would love to help you put the pieces together in order for you to see the whole picture! ... More
Emily was extremely patient with me. She also took the time to address my specific concerns and understand what my goals were from the session. Her charming and calming demeanor helped when i was getting frustrated with myself. I feel fortunate that Emily is assisting me with Spanish. Her extensive knowledge of the language was evident from the first greeting.

"Lighting Director and professional photographer for 35 years"
I made movies for thirty years. I was a director of photography, a lighting director, and finally a producer. My preparation for this very successful career was by studying Film History and Theory at UCLA. So the way that I teach photography is not primarily technical. I approach it through art photography history and studying the masters, both past and present.
I teach art photography history and theory combined with the technical skills of working a camera and processing pictures wit... ... More
