"Best friends with Math for a long time, and we need a third friend"
Unlike many other people who are here, I've not had a really long experience tutoring; however, one thing I know we all can relate with is the idea and existence of that one person that every single person in the class would unanimously go to rather than the teacher. I have been that person for a while, and I would love to be that person to you, and possibly make you that person in your class in as little time or as much time as you want.
I love tutoring math and I have been doing that sin... ... More
Susan has a very good teaching method and tunes in quickly to how you learn. She explains everything in a way you can understand and if you don't get it the first time, she goes over the material as many times as necessary.

Monique is a uniquely qualified instructor in French. I studied French in college (many years ago) and while I can still read French fairly well, my ability to carry on a normal conversation has eroded over the years. Monique assessed my skills in our first session, suggested several excellent approaches and exercises, and made me feel completely at ease. I cannot recommend Monique strongly enough to anyone who would like to work on their French.

"strong reputation as a caring and professional teacher "
Although I just retired from a long career as a teacher, my passion for teaching has not lessened, and I still have a strong desire to educate in a tutoring capacity. My career has allowed me to be an experienced homeroom teacher of small classrooms in several different grades, which also gave me the experience and the opportunity to work one on one with my students. I have taught kindergarten, second through fifth grades, and sixth grade in the last eighteen years. I was born in France where... ... More

"Kind, Patient Tutor who will help you learn"
I believe the largest part of being a tutor is maintaining patience with my students. From past experience, I understand that people learn in different ways. Often, classroom teachers do not have the time to individually help each student, so I see myself as the main back-up that my students can rely upon. I will calmly explain anything they do not comprehend and will answer all questions.
I have been to many parts of the world. My father was in the Navy, so, as a child, I lived in several f... ... More
