"Elementary & Middle School"

I have been working with young people for many years. Over five years as an after school homework aide, I grew adept at finding different ways of explaining to help students understand difficult concepts. This skill proved invaluable while student teaching in a third grade classroom. I have... ... More
My daughter takes honors physics and is struggling even though she is really good in math and did very well with other AP science courses. We tried a handful of tutors and none were a good match for her. Dan proved to be the tutor that she really could relate to. Dan corresponded prior to the lessons with us to get the syllabus and detailed information on what was being covered in class and came fully prepared. He explained concepts thoroughly and very patiently and had her solve a variety of problems to ensure she had grasped them well. I would highly recommend Daniel to anyone who is looking for a tutor that can tailor his work to your needs and is patient and very knowledgeable.

"Native French Speaker "
I love interacting with students of all ages. I am particularly happy when a student makes progress.
I was born and raised in a French speaking country. And I went to France for my college.
I am a 26 year old woman, currently a professional accountant in Parsippany. I love French music, movies and books.
I have experience teaching a 9th grade student. In my tutoring sessions, I only speak French so the student really gets familiar with French accent and French phonetics.

Very few people can teach more then one subject well. But Diane is just as capable at teaching math, as she is teaching History. Although It has only been the first 3 weeks of my tutoring with Diane I have improved greatly in both sections.

"Trained by the 2 largest tutoring companies in the US. SAT too!"
There is nothing that excites me more than watching a student's face light up from learning. My goal when I teach is to help a student achieve their potential by working on their confidence and motivation. I love to learn and I love working with students and the two together are a marriage made in heaven.
After college, I spent many years teaching in public schools and then moved on to teach statistics and system development in corporate America. After retiring from corporate America, I r... ... More
Luis has been, for me, one of the greatest writing teachers of my entire scholastic career. Writing was always a difficult topic for me to fully grasp because it is not a fact subject. By that, I simply mean that two different teachers with the same paper may grade it completely different. Luis, taught me a way to write, that teaches the core fundamentals of writing while still keeping my unique style.
Not only does he teach exceptionally well but he has never wasted a moment of any of our time together. I can honestly say he is one of the few teachers that wont try to take up time just to get to the end of a class. this means, if we finish our session early not only will he leave at that time, but he only charges for the time we spent together learning. Because of his teachings not only will I score much higher on the S.A.T writing portion of the test but I will be a much better writer throughout my life.

"Academic Prose / College Composition"
My interest in working as an academic tutor began after earning an A gradeÂ on the first expository essay I wrote as a college freshman.Â Over ten years later, I submitted an economicÂ research report as aÂ continuing education student.Â That report reawakened a proclivity for academic prose.Â From that point on, I pursued all writing rolesÂ either as the mentor or asÂ the author.Â My first tutoring responsibility materialized in the fall of 2009 when I accepted an assignment to tutor freshman Eng... ...
