Maria is a great teacher. She is able to cater her teaching to all levels and is very patient. Maria works with our two children and they love their Spanish lessons. She makes learning fun and they look forward each week to seeing her.

"Spanish Native Speaker and High School Teacher (experience K-12)"
I am originally from Ecuador, and I moved to the United States because the Louisiana Department of Education hired me to teach Spanish as a Second Language. I worked in New Orleans for two years, and I taught in an Elementary School and in a Charter School that had an Immersion Program in Spanish.
After Hurricane Katrina I was forced to move to Philadelphia and taught at a Charter School in North Philadelphia for 9 years. I taught Spanish I, Spanish II, Spanish III and AP Spanish (Language).... ... More
Superb English Tutor! Dawn is helping my two daughters with 6th/7th grade English grammar. The girls look forward to her arrival every week. She clearly explains the various concepts and even provides fun activities to reinforce what they have learned.

Judie came in to work with our son when he started slipping in Math. Her patience and mastery of the subject matter were obvious from the start, and my son's teacher immediately noticed a difference. Judie really cares: she worked with the teacher to make sure they were reviewing relevant material at my son's level and was so understanding and accommodating when we needed to make changes to the session time. She has a very calm demeanor, which is perfect for students who have Math anxiety or get frustrated easily. I honestly cannot say enough positive things about Judie! She will definitely be invited back to work with our son next year, and we wish we had found her earlier this year! She really is WONDERFUL! (P.S. My son just told me he got a 98 on his Math performance assessment, so those results prove his improvement since working with Judie!)

"Middle School and High School Math Tutor- Math IS for Everyone!"
I would like every student to know that Math is achievable and can even be fun! Math can also require work but it should never be so hard as to make a student give up or cry.
I am passionate about Math in the early years, from Pre-Algebra through Pre-Calculus. Middle school and early High School are the ages when most children develop crazy ideas about their abilities regarding math. It upsets me when I hear students say, 'I'm just not good in math!' Comments like that typically mean t... ... More
My 13 year old son has started taking Chinese lessons with Helen and is really enjoying it. We had warned him that learning Chinese would be difficult (he has no prior experience with the language), but I am surprised at how much he's picked up after only two lessons and he said that he's having fun! Helen is prepared and covers a lot in their one hour sessions, so we are very pleased.

Juliet has worked w/ our twin 15 1/2 yo daughters as they seek to hone their programming skills. Her guidance with them has been terrific as she can provide a very broad based overview of problems and subjects given her own extensive computer science background but she can also help with "nuts and bolts" issues as well. What I've especially liked is her teaching style which encourages the student to think through and work out problems and ideas themselves so they learn more rather than just giving a hard and fast answer. A+++

Just started tutoring for my son, Nancy P. has a great deal of knowledge but more importantly, the ability to teach it! My 14 year old son was very comfortable with her from the start. She is easy to communicate with, very prompt and very personable. It is obvious that she has a wealth of experience with high school age kids and and interacts with ease. Wonderful!

"Math made easy!"
Welcome to my tutoring site. I have been tutoring for 44 years. It started by helping my brother's friends through their high school math courses. I do this because I love math. Here is my story. Just recently (2012), I retired from the public school system after having taught for a total of 19 years. I taught for seven years in the archdiocese of Philadelphia at the middle school level. I have a master's degree in educational leadership and a bachelor's degree in mathematics. Due to my yea... ... More
