"Grad student tutoring history"
My love of teaching history comes from a lifelong love of the subject. As a graduate student in American Studies at New England College, I have lectured for classes and helped fellow students write papers, study for exams, and understand the material. As a tutor, I seek to enrich students with historical knowledge and not just hammer in dates and names.
I strive to ensure that the students fully understand the material and not just quickly memorize facts. In doing so, it allows the stude... ... More
The lessons with Leonard M. continue to meet all my expectations. Leonard M. is an excellent tutor and I am learning quickly!
Peter M. from West Boylston, MA
Hi! My name is Leonard. Besides being a published author in English (my native language), I have years of experience teaching and translating from classical and modern languages. I have been teaching (mostly in Catholic seminaries) since 1994, and so I have good and prolonged teaching experience. I received higher education (Doctoral degree) in Rome, at the Pontifical Biblical Institute and the Gregorian University, and so I speak Italian fairly fluently. I also have many German friends, esp... ... More
John was a great tutor for my daughter and helped her prepare for the math SAT test. He accommodated her busy schedule and was flexible with her tutoring times. He was always prompt, polite, and easy to get in touch with. After having her take a diagnostic test before their first session, he quickly identified what she needed the most help with and focused the sessions on those areas. He was well prepared for the sessions and, in addition to working with her in person, he provided her with several handouts on time management, test taking skills, practice problems etc. My daughter and I highly recommend John as a tutor!

My 7 year old son has worked with Jennifer for six months. Despite being bright, he couldn't master phonemic awareness and phonics through his instruction at school alone. He felt stupid and avoided books at all costs. Now he has begun to read proudly and states that 'Journal Time' is his favorite activity at school. He walks down the hallway with his nose buried in a book!
What helped immeasurably was Jennifer T's ability to pinpoint instruction to his exact level. She scaffolded lessons so that he was always successful and encouraged him to stretch to the next level. She provides him with games, activities, physical touch cues and even dance moves to help him master phonemic awareness! He has so much fun, he wants to go to tutoring (and this is a very active little boy!). She has provided me with resources to better my own understanding and consistently provides us activities and materials to help us at home.
I am an educator myself and felt helpless that I could not help my own child learn to read. We needed an expert and feel blessed we found one. Best of all, my son found not only a teacher but also a cheerleader and a friend.

"Computer Science, Programming, Web Development"
I have loved to teach from a very early age. I especially enjoy the process of learning, particularly when my students finally get a concept. Prior to teaching full-time, I spent many years in industry, mentoring junior staff.
My teaching philosophy is that learning is a two-way dialog. I also do not consider myself to a total expert in a field and at times will learn alongside my students. This is exciting and results in a nice dynamic of learning.
I have been teaching computer s... ... More
