"Former professor, now a homeschool mom and tutor."
I was a Lecturer for 5 years at Hesser College and Chester College in multiple subjects. Before teaching, I spent 10+ years as a vision researcher at Harvard and its affiliates.
In addition to teaching at the college level, I also homeschooled my son through middle school using an accredited curriculum. His exemplary test scores for curriculum progress and the ISEE standardized tests demonstrated both his learning and my teaching ability in all middle school subject matter.

"BU Neuroscientist looking to help your kid succeed!"
My name is Craig and I am a Neuroscientist at the Boston University School of Medicine. I am currently researching new ways to treat Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Diseases. I'd like to help kids get interested and excited about school by showing them it can lead to interesting and "cool" places. By sticking with school, I've been able to do research in the Caribbean, give multiple presentations in Europe, and feel like I have a true place in this world.
Looking back to high school I wish that ... ... More

"Need Help in Math, English, Study Skills, Writing?"
I have worked very successfully with several students diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. I helped an 8th grade student bring his grades up from C's and D's to A's and B's. His mother is a psychologist and I helped him get an IEP for middle school. I have helped many children with this problem. I took a course in Helping Children with Special Needs for my PDP's in MA Certification. I also took a Graduate Class at UMass/Amherst in Helping Gifted and Talented Students with Exceptions. Many students with this disorder are very talented and smart. ... More

Cameron was extremely patient with me and very reliable. He knew exactly what I was doing and always came prepared, reading up on the material before we met up. Wish he could help me in my other classes, one of the best tutors I've ever had!
My son had good impression with Ms. Rossana. We could do more lessons yet my son wants to have some free days before he goes back to school. We won't do any more lessons for now.
We're looking for the right format for each lesson and it seems we are getting closer. She needs to have drills that keep me thinking and speaking in Chinese and if too much English is used or if too much time elapses between questions or answers, the whole momentum is lost. I don't think she had a good picture of my level yet which is understandable since it is rather uneven, depending on the area of language knowledge. She has to challenge the student (me) and come prepared to do it. This is not a job where the teacher can "wing it", although I'm sure many students sign up at a level where that is easy for the teacher to do. There is no prepared text to follow so I have provided my own and we are trying to work out a method by combining the good points of several textbooks. It's a work in progress that requires work out of "classtime" by both teacher and student.
