Todd has been teaching both our kids 10 and 6 year old. They are excited to study with him and we do see improvement in their overall scored. Todd is teaching them English, Maths and Science.
Eada is a wonderful tutor for our 4th grader. She has been working with our child for almost a year now. Not only has our child’s confidence increased, her grades in reading and language arts are much stronger. At first I was skeptical about the effectiveness of tutoring via Skype for our child. I can honestly say it works well and is very convenient for our family. Eada is patient and very thorough. We are lucky to have found her!!
Luz is an amazing Spanish tutor!
I needed help with my English class and my tutor helped me go from a C- to an A. Very good.
I'm studying ACT with her now. She's really professional teacher and good at teaching too. Even i can see my ACT improvement.
Taynara is extremely professional, efficient and produces at a high level. I would recommend her for any of your Portugese or English language services!
Emily has been tutoring my daughter E for the last couple of months. E is a freshman, quite shy, and has been struggling a bit in her studies (mostly Algebra). We first met Emily and I found her to be very professional and yet still very friendly. She supplied me with all her background information - education, experience, references and even a background screening from the Family Care Safety Registry. Emily has helped E with organization and and with her knowledge of Algebra, she has also helped with other homework when needed. Emily pushes E to ask questions and gives her to do lists, she is very encouraging and positive. She relates very well with my daughter and I highly recommend her.

Spanish is my first language and I have lived in the United States for 28 years. I was the Bilingual HR generalist/translator at my last job.
I teach private and small group French lessons for students who are already taking French classes as well as creating personalized lessons. I have experience with high school students from both public, private and home school environments.
I am passionate about teaching so try to do so in a manner that keeps the student engaged. I do not strive to simply teach the student, I strive to help the student understand the material well enough to have the ability to teach someone else. I do this by making them feel as comfortable as possible to ask any questions needed for better understanding.
I started to teach online Spanish lessons, Italian lessons (bilingual), and differential calculus in the year 2003.
