Friendly and Knowledgeable Tutor with 15+ Years of Experience

In 1998, I started tutoring 3 young kids just to earn extra money as a high schooler, and by 2002, I was doing this as as a full time career with 20+ regular students. Who would have thought that tutoring would become my passion? Throughout all these years, I have taught kids as young as 4 years old to college students. I absolutely love that even when I tutor the exact same subject 20 times, each time is new and interesting because each student has a different personality, learning style, a... [more]

Dedicated Tutor for Math, English, and Study Skills

My entire life I have enjoyed teaching and helping others. Throughout high school and college, friends came to me for help in all subject areas; my teachers even grouped me with struggling students so that I could help them through difficult concepts and class work. After high school I attended the University of Oregon for a B.A. in Economics, with a minor in Mathematics, and a GPA of 3.67. In tutoring, I first focus on understanding exactly what a student is having trouble with, then use a ... [more]

It was an amazing experience learning Japanese while living with a host family. I received my MA TESOL from San Francisco State, where I taught at the American La... [more]

Language Arts Wizard

For nine months, I worked as a tutor at the MTSU Writing Center. My goal as a tutor is to help learners succeed by useful strategies for reading and writing. I believe that revising and editing skills are vital to the writer. It is rare that a first draft of any piece of writing will ever be "complete," and as a tutor, I enjoy offering feedback on what the writer can do to improve their piece of writing. Besides my experience as a tutor, I have had teaching certification in English (grades 7... [more]

U.C. Berkeley English Tutor: Reading, Writing, Results!

I was a child who hated reading. I became an adult who devours books. That evolution gives me a unique insight into what's possible. Everyone is a reader. Everyone is a writer. We just need to cultivate the seeds within. While I've been a professional writer for 25 years, tutoring has always been my most rewarding work. I met weekly with a middle-school girl of immigrant parents who was struggling with vocabulary, grammar, and book reports. Through our partnership and her dedication, she we... [more]
