"Private English tutor-loves kids!"
My name is Katharine, and I specialize in tutoring English. I've tutored independently and on this site for over 10 years, and generally work with children, grades 1-12. I specialize in English, and teach vocabulary, spelling and reading fundamentals. For my first session with each pupil, I do an assessment of their reading skills to determine their ability level, and then I customize my tutoring methods and materials to suit their individual needs.

It's only been 2 sessions that Allison has worked with Karl and I don't know what he's doing (actually I'm updated after every session) but her confidence has risen 100%. She actually thinks she has someone that she can go to in order to get a better understanding of Latin. For the past two years she has struggled with both the content and a teacher that is distant. Allison was really getting discouraged. Thanks Karl!

In turn, I am able to teach not only the language but also about the cultures of many Spanish-speaking countries. I like to incorporate many of my relevant travel stories to inspire the travel bug in students be... ... More
"Experienced TESOL certified teacher"
I arrived in US when I was 11 years old with no prior knowledge of English. When I entered my first school in US, I met my first 5th grade teacher; her name was Mrs. Dearheart. She was kind, patient and understanding knowing that I did not know a single word in English. Through this wonderful experience, I knew I wanted to do something like what she did and that is to teach others English with as much kindness; patience and understanding as Mrs. Dearheart gave to me in learning.
Since the... ... More
