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.

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
Upon search of assistance, I was looking for quality service. In my mind, $50 dollars was a reasonable price for a tutor whom could help me. Mr. Kevin stated he is charging for the â€œhour worth of work as I was 45 minutes late for my appointment.â€ I am not sure what that means, but I did contact him and he made it seem like it was okay. I am completely astounded because I am still stuck at point one yet Mr. Kevin walks away with 50 dollars. There were two things I recall Mr. Kevin asked me in the session which was what is standard deviation? Also, what does probability of successes mean? Other than that we were stuck on one problem for an answer with no further guidance. As a student and single parent I was overcharged because Mr. Kevin could not provide help.
Communication- there was not much communication about the lesson at all. More personal communication was done than actually getting the lesson taught.
Punctuality- He was on time at site.
Expertise- He lacked expertise and made a comment that â€œhe hasnâ€™t done this in years.â€ In reference to my Data Analysis Class (probability, standard deviation, mean, etc)

"BS and MS in Chemistry, 4 Years' Experience Tutoring and Teaching"

I plan on getting my PhD with a teaching certification, and my year of tutoring experience in addi... ... More
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!
