"Experinced tutor with extensive business background"
As my resume delineated,the preponderance of my career has been spent in a corporate atmosphere, with a concentration in mathematical representation of
natural catastrophes. While my resume is an accurate depiction of the income generating portion of my career, it is silent with regard to the more satisfying and persistent component of my career,teaching.

Ms. J. is terrific! I went to her to learn Excel. This wasn't my first run at it, but this is the first time I was able to follow what we were doing. I'm technophobic and innumerate, and too often people attempting to teach me either move too fast or lose patience. Not so, Ms. J., a professional teacher who showed me why she's been in demand by some of the country's leading secondary schools. I'm a lawyer with degrees from four different universities, including Harvard, and I've encountered no better teaching.
Ms. J. quickly adjusted to my pace, answered my questions without wincing, and we made enough progress in one session to make me eager for more. She's also pleasant company. After I knock off Excel, under her tutelage, I may even ask her to teach me physics, a subject I avoided like a social disease, all through school. Who knows--I may yet get a Nobel.

"Physics Made Phun!"
I am a physics teacher with 20 years of experience. I have worked in various settings in the past -- as a researcher at Columbia University, as an MCAT course developer at Stanley Kaplan, and as a teacher. I have taught everything from 7th grade general science, to physics, to astronomy, to AP physics. Physics is the kind of subject where you don't know what you really think, until you have heard what you've said. Having a physics buddy to talk over places where you struggle in the curric... ...

"Patient and knowledgeable Tutor for Pre-School to Middle with Special"
I have worked as a substitute teacher for the last twelve years and have seen many methods in the classroom; some good, others not-so-good. I have worked one-to-one and with groups of students as they progress through their learning experiences. I'd like to think that I can develop a good rapport with almost any student, and the fact that a tutor becomes involved means that the student and parents are taking a strong, positive approach to learning. I just finished an Ortongillingham Course... ... More
