After missing almost a week of school, I felt very behind in AP Econ. Worried I would never catch up with all my work, I went on WyzAnt and immediately found Kevin. I decided to give it a try, and after just 1 session, I felt much more relieved. Kevin helps work through your problems and questions. Instead of just telling you the answer, you work together so that you understand the process of getting there. Kevin is easy to get in touch with, and a great listener. I recommend him as a tutor.

"Dr. Physics and Mr. Math"
If you are looking for someone to help you where others have failed, or if you just want the best, then I'm definitely your tutor. Key focus must be on the student overcoming any mental barriers he/she may have to understanding the subjects. I teach concepts first and test taking second. If you know the concepts, the test results follow, but test taking strategies are also emphasized.
I specialize in college level courses but am willing to tutor the highly motivated college-bound high sch... ... More

Aaron worked with our son for several months on computer programming. He was consistent, easy to reach, and always had a plan of what to work on with him. It worked well for us and gave our son a boost in an area where he wanted extra instruction.

"Caring Elementary School Tutor 1-5 and Spanish Teacher"
Hi, I love to see kids succeed and advance in their studies. Having them feel good about their accomplishments as well as moving them forward is important.

I'm an Italian-American from Yonkers, New York who has had many years of experience in dealing with native Italians who for one reason or another found themselves situated either permanently or temporarily in the New York city region. My experience with them even includes an entire summer in 1981 working as an intern at the Italian Trade Commission on Park Ave in NYC. My experience with this tutor has decisively shown me that this is a flawless individual in her capacity as an Italian translator. Her most notable asset is her initiative, as she translated for me a two page document riddled with American idiomatic expressions in less than three days. On the fourth day, Lisa personally came to my house to assist me in putting the finishing touches on the final draft. Let me be clear here, no Italian in the NYC region with the established translator skills of a Lisa would have rendered in such a short period of time what she produced for me in terms of the quality of the translation or the personal attention she afforded me. For all you out there looking for an awesome Italian translator with reasonable prices, now you know where to go.

I am very patient and find ways to engage them to learn, at their own pace.
I am working with several Autistic children, ADD Adults, dyslexic adults and teenagers, and ADHD children. ... More
