"Patient, Energetic Native Speaker specializing in fluency"
I am a fully bilingual Native speaker from Puerto Rico. I grew up spending my summers on the island, immersing myself in my language and culture. Born in New York, to a first generation parent born in the city, my grandparents spoke Spanish as their first language, and spent much of their time speaking to me and caring for me in Spanish only. Though my mother speaks Spanish as her first language, my grandparents allowed me to learn the language through interaction with close family and friend... ... More
Shirin M. has far surpassed our expectations in a tutor. She is working with our 17-year old daughter in the very challenging subject of Calculus. Shirin had a tough assignment as a tutor because our daughter, who was taking an self-taught, online Calculus course through her high school, found out right before winter break that she had fallen close to two months behind in her class. This put her in the difficult position of catching up on more than what could be called a considerable amount of work before she would be allowed to re-enroll for the second semester. How fortunate we were that Shirin was available this very busy week of the year to offer our daughter 20 hours of individual tutoring (not to mention emotional support) for this daunting challenge! Shirin even took on this assignment while on her vacation week from her own full-time day job...wow! Shirin has been prompt to our sessions, professional, encouraging, patient, flexible with scheduling, and thorough in her tutoring. She knows not just how to do the problems herself, but how to teach our daughter to understand and solve the work on her own - this is a skill that not every tutor/teacher has. We are confident that between our daughter's determination to succeed and Shirin's tutoring, our daughter will achieve the goal of re-enrollment for her second semester.

"Richard. T "Lowbrass, Theory and General Music""
Greetings all! My name is Richard and I am currently a senior studying Tuba Performance and working on my Masters in Teaching at Morgan State University. Music by far is one of the most impressive creations man has ever made but in these dying economic times: school boards tend to defer from music programs that help tap into a child's creative abilities. My goal is to bring instruments and basic music principles to every household so kids can go out and lead the classrooms and the band roo... ... More

I passed the Maryland state bar exam in 2003. I scored high enough on the multi state portion to waive into DC. I have been a practicing litigation attorney since 2004. Since that time I have been lead counsel in over 30 jury trials and argued successfully before the DC Court of Appeals. ... More
Betty is very easy to work with. My schedule is ever changing and she consistently checks her email and gets back to me immediately. She is very flexible. She provides excellent explanations when I do not understand things. In one week, my grade in Macroeconomics has gone up 10 points, and I have received 95%'s and above in my French work. She is versatile; she helps me with primarily Marcoeconomics, but French when needed. She is the best!

"Economics, Algebra and French tutor"
I enjoy helping all students from elementary to graduate school in Economics, Accounting, Finance and other Business courses. I also tutor middle and high school students in Algebra and Geometry.
I love to breakdown theoretical economics and math concepts in a way that makes sense to students. Sometimes, it just takes few concepts for everything to make sense. And I definitely love to see that "aha look" on my students' face when everything starts making sense. That's my reward.

I have had a very positive tutoring experience with Odile. She is organized, attentive and thorough, and she gets great results! She is a native French speaker, so she's tremendous help with developing an authentic French accent. She also develops personalized lesson plans catered to your abilities and interests, and always makes sure to work on conversational skills. Very easy to reach by phone or email. Highly Recommended!
