"Elementary Educator with over 20 years of experience"
Proficiency in reading is such an important skill. It crosses all areas of the curriculum. Younger students learn to read while older students read to learn. A strong phonics program to aid in decoding words, broadening vocabulary and increasing comprehension are key components to becoming a successful reader. ... More
My first meeting with Curt went great. Curt was well organized, had prepared several training exercises, very flexible, and wanted to know and understand my goals.
Curt did not know just the language; he knew the culture and customs.
I am one of those students that just do not want to be rushed. Curt was patient, supportive, and took time to explain things. I learn so much in that one hour.

"Motivated ESL and German Tutor"
Hi, my name is Michael Curtis N., but I would really appreciate it if you called me Curt.

If you are in need of a tutor for yourself or your children, I highly recommend Robert K! He arrives on time, is very knowledgeable, and is attentive to students' needs for the entire session. Robert takes the time to ensure that the student understands a concept before he introduces another new concept. He is also patient and understanding. I am very fortunate to have Robert K for a tutor, and I highly recommend this kind and caring tutor for all age groups and tutoring needs!

"Math Science and Programming"
I have been teaching for 10 years. I teach at Heald College (English, Humanities, Math, and Statistics).
I also started a small private school in downtown Sacramento, Wayne Geri Academy, that specializes in hands on learning which includes a fair bit of programming. I very much enjoy teaching and find it most effective when given the chance to interact one on one with students.
I look forward to working with you,

"Science and Math teacher with patience and dilligence"
I love learning, from the most simple of things to how to make my next meal taste more delicious, to grand things regarding the functioning and inner workings of the universe. I am highly motivated for my own knowledge, and endlessly enthusiastic towards those who likewise desire to obtain knowledge. There is no field of knowledge in which I lack interest, yet my areas of mastery are music and Mandarin Chinese.
I have taught in China in a classroom for seven years and individually tutored... ... More
"ESL, Writing, Public Speaking Coach"
After more than 20 years teaching English all over the world, I still like helping people write and speak better English! Really. I've got grandmother-type patience and try to make learning fun. We shouldn't be afraid of learning; it should be something to enjoy and be proud of.
We would talk about what you want, write about things that interest you. I think this is the best way--when you want to communicate, you will care more about improving your skills. Please be a serious student, but yo... ... More
