Patricia really wants you to learn at your own pace with your own style of learning. She personalizes the lessons given your background, interests, expectations. I have been very pleased with her efforts. You as the student need to work at it as hard as she does.
I have seven years of experience with instruction of all aspects of English language arts, Latin and writing composition. In teaching, I focus on the key elements of language and composition. These include the significance of contextual evidence, literary/rhetorical device usage, the patterns consistent throughout all languages, interpretation and comprehension of literature and perfecting the stages of the writing process. I particularly emphasize skillful word usage and sentence variation in any written work as well as in rhetoric. In order to teach language structure, I teach the vital critical thinking skills necessary to analyze and interpret languages. Those invaluable problem-solving skills extend far beyond learning the grammar and vocabulary of any language. They reach across the academic curriculum and into the professional world. Guided by my instruction, students reach their academic goals and surpass their own expectations. My primary tutoring subjects are the following: * Latin (grammar, translation, interpretation and composition) * English Language Arts * Composition * Grammar * Proofreading and Editing * Writing Skills * Literature * Study Skills/Organizational Planning
I help my students by teaching them what they enjoy learning. Whether in the field of music or school subjects, such as reading, writing or math, my students receive a full and comprehensive curriculum.
Mary Ann tutored my young daughter who really struggled with school and maintaining proper focus to complete her schoolwork. Mary Ann was so warm and welcoming towards my daughter along with exhibiting a lot of patience and willingness to help her learn. My daughter always enjoyed spending time with her and actually looked forward to their sessions. I was impressed with how she worked closely with my daughter's teachers and school. She actually made the effort to attend school meetings with me. We had an outstanding experience with Mary Ann, and it is now exciting to see my daughter want to work on her math and reading homework!
I find that if you really love what you do then the quality will speak for itself. I found that I was terrible at waiting tables because I lacked passion for it. So I had to ask myself what is that I love doing? I love learning French and I love playing my guitar. So I set up a business around these two loves of my life. I love watching people as they learn that it is possible to learn a second language or play along their favorite songs on guitar.
Julie is fantastic- nurturing, kind, professional and a great writing tutor. Her rates are lower than average, so the value was terrific. She is always on time or a bit early. My son loved her. We used her multiple times a week as our primary writing teacher for my 6th grader who was homeschooled at the time. I recommended her to a friend who needed a homeschool tutor due to some emotional difficulty with school and she was so grateful. Julie was the first tutor that her daughter responded to positively. Julie is kind and gentle, but firm so things get done. She will bend over backward to help a student or their parents. She has a true love of both learning and of her students. She is a wonderful person to have in your home. Peaceful, kind, personable. You will be fortunate if you are able to fit into her schedule and she into yours!!
Very detailed in her explanations, she was well versed in the reading and English sections helping me raise my score in each. She teaches a class for act tutoring at my school (Central Magnet), but I didn't have the time to take a semester class. This is a great alternative that I would recommend for anyone looking to bump up their score.
I have been interested in learning to play guitar for a long time. My son who is going to be a senior was also interested in picking up the bass guitar in order to take a Rock Band class in school. Being a busy mom, I needed someone who could come to our house as well as be flexible with scheduling lessons. Lonny does both of these and is very reasonable with his fee. My son and I both have played piano and 1 other instrument each so that rhythm and reading notes came easier for us. But Lonny took me pretty far in the first couple of lessons that I was able to play notes on all 6 strings and therefore beautiful classical guitar songs with notes and chords in the treble and bass clefs. He is currently working with my son on syncopation. I'm confident that he has listened to my son's goals and will have him ready to be comfortable playing in Rock Band once school starts.
Love getting to know everyone on a personal level and succeed
I am passionate to teach language and culture, and I try hard to make fun and pleasant lessons. Grammar is essential, but we can do it smoothly by using conversation, news and some exercises too.
Shavonta has been an excellent tutor for my pre-teen daughter. I was very impressed with how organized she was with her lessons. She is very patient and great with kids. Will definitely recommend her
I have acquired a degree in Spanish while at the same time, have traveled to countries of Hispanic origin. This makes my tutoring service more meaningful and realistic which lasts beyond just learning years.
