"All things Science"
I am a stay at home dad with four small children (ages 7 and 6, and 17 month old twins) and tutor as a way of sharing my passion for science. I was a biology major and chemistry minor in college and am an excellent tutor for all things scientific. I earned my PhD in cellular and molecular biology focusing on heart development. I enjoy helping students learn that science can be both interesting and fun. Whether you are struggling to understand the concepts or just need a little extra help, ... ... More
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.

"30 year science teacher can assist with keystone biology exam and more"
After teaching biology for 30 years at the high school level, I have since retired and have been very much enjoying tutoring students in life science courses through the WyzAnt website. For more specific information concerning my credentials and references-please refer to my personal and professional profile located on the WyzAnt site.
My husband and I were very fortunate to find Jazmine on WyzAnt to tutor my 15-year-old daughter in Spanish. I looked for a local Spanish tutor for some time and could not find anyone who was nearby and within my budget. Jazmine began by evaluating my daughter's knowledge to determine her current level before proceeding. She makes Spanish fun and incorporates many different methods to teach, including movies, videos and articles, in addition to traditional methods such as flashcards, worksheets, quizzes and tests. She also accommodates my hectic schedule, and she always has a smile on her face!
Jazmine is an excellent communicator. She plans her sessions in advance and sends a detailed email to me ahead of time so that I know what they will be working on. She also sends me a review after each class.
I strongly recommend Jazmine for anyone who is seeking a Spanish tutor!

"Professional Tutor-Multiple Disciplines"
I have worked with many students of various ages and abilities, including those with special needs. I am most familiar and have worked with more students who have ADD/ADHD, Aspergerâ€™s, Cerebral Palsy, and/or spinal cord injuries; however, I do know quite a bit of information on other learning and physical disabilities. I am a graduate of Wagner College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in theatre design, technology and management. While I do offer lessons in various subjects and disciplines, I h... ... More
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. ...

"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
"Elementary and Middle School"
I am currently retired after two very successful careers. The first of which was a 20 year career in Education. I spent 3 years teaching in Trenton, New Jersey followed by 5 years in New York City.

My experience during these years was in 4th, 5th and 6th grades. Upon my return to the USA, I taught 7th and 9t... ... More
