"Highly Experienced College Instructor"
I have more than 10 years experience working with ADD/ADHD individuals. Most of my experience has been with elementary-age students who required special assistance because of the diagnosis.
I have learned various techniques to help keep them engaged and focused, and I am a very calm and patient instructor. Much of my session is hands-on and allows a positive outlet for their energy. I also like to incorporate games, puzzles, art projects, computer time and other tactile lessons to keep them interested and learning.
I currently tutor a 6-year-old recently diagnosed by ADD and have a grea ... More
I had selected three tutors to try out for my very first tutoring session ever. Jennifer was the first one to respond to my emails and set up a time to meet. From the first day/session I had with her, we clicked and I knew she was going to be my tutor! Jennifer is a wonderful person who wants to make sure you, the student, are understanding your material. I never had a problem trying to contact her, whether it was by phone or by email, she always responded. I have always struggled with math my entire life and have never been able to pull above a C in class. I was horrible on exams, I didn't know how to study and would attempt the homework and then just push it aside when I couldn't figure something out. After the first few meetings with Jennifer, I felt more confident with my homework. The more we met on a regular basis, the more I was able to understand my homework and improve on my test scores. The biggest accomplishment for me was actually passing my math courses with B's!! I was so excited!! Jennifer helped me through 2 semesters of college math for elementary teachers and I hope to be able to use her in the future too. I would highly recommend Jennifer to any of my family, friends or even strangers! I can't thank her enough for helping me...I'm proud to say, I was even able to help my friend the other day with stuff I learned last winter without having to look it up!!

Fumi presented a very informative and practical first Japanese lesson. She introduced common greetings and polite forms. She introduced numbers and counting up to 100, and beyond! At the same time, she was very careful to make sure I could both understand and say these new words. Fumi gave a good introduction to pronunciation. She familiarized me with 2 Japanese writing systems, Hiragana and Katakana. Fumi increased my confidence into ability to learn Japanese. She is a very skilled instructor.

"Experienced Japanese language tutor"
I have been a K-8 Japanese teacher at the same private school for 16 years. I have also tutored high school students and adults who need to speak Japanese for business. I was born in Tokyo, so I have excellent pronunciation skills and accent in Japanese speaking.
I do interaction 'specials' from time to time, such as Origami or singing Japanese songs. Those cultural experiences improve learning skills and students can naturally adapt themselves to Japanese community and communications.... ... More
