Experienced, Results-Oriented Language Tutor

I have worked with a variety of students on social studies curriculum at all grade levels. I am intimately familiar with the material so I can focus on how best to convey the information to you or your child. I match my teaching style with my students' learning style so they can grasp and retain the content. This could include visual aids, making flashcards, supplementary materials/worksheets, practice tests, kinesthetic/auditory/visual strategies, and other creative means of helping each of my students achieve mastery of the material.

Harvard doctoral, 20 yrs. teaching, specializing in writing, SAT/ACT

My middle school teaching over a decade consisted of teaching Social Studies or an integrated Humanities course that combined Social Studies with English literature and writing. I love these subjects and I love to teach them: the possibilities for intellectual growth are tremendous! Many schools focus on facts, figures and dates. While the basics need to be known, I consistently found that my middle school students were capable of so much more intellectual and analytical depth. They simply needed more challenge, and someone to structure these intellectual learning activities. I taught at 4 d [more]

Sciences, Test Prep, English & Math, Literature, and Biology

My passion for teaching was founded by my own experience as a student. Throughout my academic career, the challenges I encountered refined my own approach to understanding subjects, and the ensuing success after overcoming such obstacles brought me further love for learning and those subjects. I want to transmit that feeling of accomplishment to students as they master their own subjects, and hopefully foster a passion for further learning and success in any of their other endeavors. As a to... [more]

History Is My Passion

Originally from New York City, I moved to the Bay Area four years ago, mostly because of the weather (it is cold in NY!). I?m currently working in real estate and while I enjoy what I do, I?ve always wanted to spread my love of history with others. I have a Master's from Northeastern University and a Psychology degree from City University of New York, Queens College. Most people find this subject boring--and I get that. It wasn?t until I had a great history teacher in my junior year of hig... [more]

Experienced tutor for English and Social Studies

I am a former elementary school teacher. Later, I became a professor of American History at a university. I have taught many different grade levels and subjects. I have also tutored many children over the years. I enjoy one-on-one tutoring since it is a good way for students to learn their lessons. If a student is feeling confused or uncertain about an assignment, the tutor can offer structure and guidance as to how to proceed. Sometimes a student has a question that did not get answere...
