Our Experience with our English Tutor, Theodore has been outstanding. Theodore tutors twice a week for us and comes each and every week prepared with a well thought out lesson to meet our specific learning needs. I would recommend Theodore for his English teaching skills for sure, just so long as its not on Tuesday or Thursday evenings between 6 and 7pm. :) Brady
Louisa is a very nice English teacher. At the beginning of Jan, I was going to have an interview, and I need someone to help me with English conversation. That's why I found Louisa. We met at a coffee shop downtown Seattle several times. She was really patient, she helped me with both general conversation and interview questions, and she helped a lot with my wording problems. I really appreciated her job.
Best math and English tutors we've ever come across.
I have known Lynn Wilton for 25 years. She tutored me in English as a second language, and then in English as well while I was a student at Edmonds Community College (1997-1999). I have found her to be a very enthusiastic, creative, dedicated and patient tutor with excellent skills in improving my speaking, reading and writing. I received a very good GPA of 3.94 in my English course. Lynn Wilton is a excellent English tutor, and I strongly recommend her to anyone who needs help in English.
Best tutor ever! She took a moment to find out my learning style and taught to that. She always encouraged and challenged. I am excited to work with her again.
Very nice and helpful teacher
"Perfection cannot be perfected". Piyush is a perfect English coach any student could need for his excellence in English language or subject at school. He is extra sweet with kids of all ages and friendly with parents. Very understanding and listens one on one. I don't see any thing that needs to be improved in his coaching. He is the best.
Grant tutored my daughter last fall. In just three months, he helped her raise her SAT score by 170 points, making it possible for her to attend the university of her choice. On top of that, he inspired in her a love of learning and made the process interesting and fun. I recommend Grant to all my friends seeking a tutor for their children.
Brian is an amazing tutor who helps and inspires you!! It's been almost 1 year since I started lessons with him. I'm always excited and looking forward to our lessons. He is energetic, enthusiastic. Most of all, he is a professional tutor so that he knows what parts of my English needed help as well as we set the goal for my advancement. Every lesson we are working for the goal. I am so glad that I found him as a tutor. Plus he makes it fun!!!
Leigh helped me revise my final essay for my English Composition II class. She was friendly and professional and I highly recommend her!
My daughter has always struggled with writing (she finds it tedious, and, as a result, difficult). When I hired Tom as her writing tutor, my hope was that he would help her make it through a particularly writing-heavy academic year. Tom not only allowed my daughter to meet this goal, but took my daughter so far beyond it that I still have a hard time believing it. Originally, I chose him because he looks good on paper: he is a published author, has an MFA from Columbia University, and years of teaching experience. It only took a handful of sessions to see the other qualities that make him so unique. He is not only committed to seeing his students do well (in the traditional sense), but, more importantly, he is committed to cultivating students' investment in, and appreciation for, the written word. My daughter has been empowered, and she has begun to see writing as a craft, as something pleasurable, and as something that will be imperative in all future life arenas. She has, in other words, come to see writing as her favorite subject. And, she sees Tom as one of the more significant influences on her intellectual life. The magic he works goes beyond writing, only. Because of my daughter's devotion to Tom as a teacher, we also hired him to help her with geometry. Although most tutors are able to do *either* math and science, *or* the more humanistic disciplines, it would appear that this is not the case with Tom. In fact, I can't think of a subject in which he would *not* be an effective tutor! It probably goes without saying at this point: our family recommends Tom very, very highly.
Teacher Teresa was quick to understand my children's English levels and teaches them step by step. It helps the children get interested in reading English book a lot. Thank you Teresa!!!
Mary was an excellent Spanish tutor! She was very flexible with my schedule and I appreciated the mix of tools that she used to help me learn.
Claire is wonderful! Fun and engaging and patient. Very reliable and flexible when needed. My three kids and I have her for tutoring once per week and we are enjoying it very much.
Learning Solutions provided the tutoring I needed to be able to complete my educational program. Kathi was knowledgeable in many areas of study that I needed help with and what she didn't know she was willing to research and bring back to our next session. She is flexible with your schedule and creates a friendly atmosphere where learning is more likely to occur. I would highly recommend Kathi to adults looking for tutoring for themselves and for their children.
I have taught junior high school overseas for three years, and have worked with students ages preschool-high school.
I teach English and Spanish in a very innovative and fun way with non-traditional methods. I am experienced in working with businesses interested in developing their workforce.
I am patient, encouraging and insightful. I designed the class to meet the students' needs and time requirements.
We have more than ten years of experience tutoring and mentoring elementary, middle, and junior high school students in Mathematics, Reading, Writing, Social Studies, Language Arts, and History. We place special emphasis on learning skills. We listen and observe how the student best takes in the information, and then create lesson plans based on those strengths. We all learn in different ways. Our job is to make learning enjoyable and effective.
I am currently on hiatus from the classroom. I taught Spanish at high school and junior high level for 15 years before moving to Switzerland. I took up French before moving to Switzerland and continued for two years while living in Geneva. I had a son upon returning to the Seattle area, and I am currently a stay-at-home mom looking to reenter the work force.
I want to help students who struggle with English to increase their speaking, reading and writing level. I taught English in China for a year, so I have some experience with teaching English as a foreign language.
