"English as a second language"

Although I feel it is important to stress proper grammar I am much more concerned about a student learning every-day expressions which will help them be able to integrate more successfully into the American ... ... More

I went to Faith last year for help with organic chemistry II. I needed the help BADLY and she was able to provide that for me. Without her help, I don't know if I would have been able to pass the course. She was available, even on weekend mornings, to sit down with me and help me through my struggles. Faith is a very patient tutor, and was able to break down the material into terms that I could understand. When I would get a test back, we would go over it together in order for me to improve for the next test. I highly recommend Faith to anyone who needs help in any chemistry course (especially organic chem!) She saved me from having to retake that course!

Aside from my husband I share my home with our beautiful 14-yr-old son and two chocolate labs.
I enjoy tutoring on account of the one-on-one personal interaction with my students. I have over 20 years experience in ... ... More
Robert has come to our house now two times. Both times he has spent the whole time getting down to teaching. No wasted time. He incorporates good examples to do with the task at hand. He is very soft spoken. Easy for my daughter to follow. Connects well with her and uses examples and even changed to meet her needs. I feel that Robert offers an excellent level of ability and we would recommend him.

"Math and Physics tutor"
Physics is all around us, embedded in everything we do. Learning physics is learning about our world and how it works. My approach is conceptual in nature. I use practical, real world examples to bring light to and understanding of physics concepts. While physics does have math in it (since the universe uses math to explain itself to us), math is only a tool to be used in forming our understanding. I am certified to teach high school physics by the State of Connecticut and have taught physics... ... More
Lauren is a really nice tutor. She is very patient and her pronunciation is clear. It's comfortable to work with her. Often she lent books to me to meet my interest. I learn a lot from her.
