"Special Education Tutor"
I have taught students with ADD/ADHD in kindergarten through eighth grade for nine years. These students were from the New York City area and had other learning differences as well as emotional disorders. I have specific strategies to keep students focused and engaged (frequent breaks, hands on activities, cueing systems both physical and verbal, etc). ... More
Very patient and personable with my son. Saw an immediate difference in study habits. He knows how to engage and keep his interest. My son's confidence is elevated and he really enjoys working with Tapi. I highly recommend!

"Expert Tutoring in Advanced Math"
I have helped dozens of students complete their General Education Development tests including Math, Science and the other subjects. My approach is tailored to each individual so that more time is spent on areas of weakness and less on areas of strength, although we do consolidate these by continuous practice.
Most students I've worked with have limited time so my solution is to cut straight to the chase, give them the exact data they need and build the skills necessary to pass the test. Extraneous material is avoided at all costs.
I came to Frances knowing nothing about painting. I was also very apprehensive about whether or not I could be taught how to paint. After our first lesson I not only realized I could learn how to paint but with Francesâ€™s guidance I could also expand my mind in ways I dared not consider. Frances is such a unique teacher. Aside from being a brilliant painter, she has an impressive resume of experience and knowledge in many fields. Over the course of our time together, she has managed to teach me about painting in a personalized way that has helped me to not only build upon my existing field of expertise but surprisingly to learn more about the world around me. I find myself contemplating our painting conversations frequently and at times when I am not only thinking about art. I always look forward to meeting with Frances and applying her knowledge to the things in life that interest me.
As an art professional myself, a working NYC artist who exhibits widely, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that Frances knows as much about contemporary art as she does about the old Masters. Her wealth of knowledge is astounding which gives her an ability to cater her lessons to your own personal needs in a manner that has your best interests in mind rather than a prescribed teaching approach. Frances is also wonderful at helping you build upon your strengths in order to get you to the necessary next stage. Not only does this foster self-confidence but it enables the skill and information to click in a way that helps the process to move faster as you continue to study and learn. She is by far the best art teacher I have ever had and I can confidently recommend her. It is a rare thing to find a teacher so well versed in painting, design, textiles, psychology and children. I am happy that she can teach me and soon, when my son is a bit older, I hope that she can teach him too. She is a true gift!

There have been four lessons so far, and I can already see improvement. Cecilia has shown great patience and a fine sense of humor as she attempts to teach not only the Italian language but also the culture and spirit of Italy. I highly recommend her.
Bill M. from Cortlandt Manor, NY
My profile title should give you a pretty good idea of what I like about my Country (Italy, obviously).
My most recent tutoring experiences included
- an ex-police officer, now bodyguard for a VIP in New York City. His love for Italy included cars, dogs and food (he end up going to Bologna, my hometown, for a 1 month course to learn how to cook, and indeed he did, just ask his wife!),
- a female firefighter (high ranking) in love with Italian Art, small Italian towns, good wine and Itali... ... More

Tim is a very patient tutor. I am 59 and needed to brush up on both math concepts and chemistry concepts. He was able to help me in both of these areas. He is both punctual and professional and able to break things down for me so I was no so afraid. I would highly recommend him!
