"Bonjour! French, ESL, English, Flute tutor available"
My name is Jodie. I am looking for students to tutor in French, ESL, English and the flute. I have experience tutoring French and ESL. I am also qualified to tutor English and flute. I have been playing the flute for almost 25 years.
I lived in France for six years, where I taught ESL and attended a university. I have taught at high school and university levels in the US. At high school, I taught French I, French II, French III, French IV, French V, and AP French. At universi... ... More
Anne has been our math tutor for our 14 year old daughter this summer, and we feel very blessed to have selected such an outstanding person and tutor. Anne has helped our daughter feel more confident in her math abilities, and has engaged our daughter through her teaching techniques, which are not always available in her regular math classroom. The one on one attention, has been an excellent way for our daughter to not only grasp the concepts, but has provided a forum where she feels comfortable asking questions.
Anne has done so well with our daughter this summer, that we have asked her to stay on as our daughter's tutor during the school year. We are certain this will be a benefit for her by keeping her interest and focus on math.
I absolutely appreciate the very detailed and enthusiastic summary that Anne provides us via e-mail concerning her tutoring sessions with our daughter,and are immediately available to access.
Anne is very talented and it is apparent that she enjoys working with students. I know it has been a great reward for her when our daughter has reached that " Ah HA " moment. Her patience is contagious and encouraging as well!

"Let's Learn Using Your Best Learning Styles!"
Hajime-mashite! Nice to meet you! My name is Anne and I have my IA K-12 music license, as well as my IN Professional Educator license. I've just added an ESL endorsement to my standard IA teaching license. Although music is my area of endorsement, I have been doing substitute teaching in many areas -- in particular, for middle school math teachers, and also for lower elementary school (K, 1, 2, 3, 4th grade) classrooms. Math is definitely an area I love - nearly as much as music! When i... ... More
I found Sharon J came prepared for the class and she was on time. But I felt she is not knowledgeable in TOEFL. I think she should reassess her skills before accepting tutoring requests.
Additionally, our first meeting was supposed to be an introductory session, but she made a class out of it without declaring any syllabus before meeting. And she charged me for that session.

People have always guessed that I was a teacher as if I had it emblazoned on my forehead! In fact, as a child I was the neighborhood teacher conducting class in our garage. In college I wanted to know French so well that I could teach English in France. However, after 6 years of French that never materialized, and I didn't make it to France until about 30 yrs later. Amazing how I could still carry on a conversation in French after all that time!! I truly love the language!
I also love the En... ... More

I was very reluctant about hiring a tutor for many reasons; however I am absolutely blown away by Marciaâ€™s insight and expertise in the Spanish language. She is fully prepared with all her own resources that have captured my sonâ€™s imagination. Every time my son drifts off, she has the ability to draw him back or shift with him. My son has had only four sessions and shows many signs of identifying with the Spanish language. I am very excited for his future success.
