Great teacher, warm environment

Nancy has been an excellent piano instructor for my two boys. She is patient and very encouraging, which brings out the best in the kids. We do lessons at her house and it's always a nice, welcoming environment. Nancy is very sweet and works very hard to accommodate our erratic schedule, and often takes a little extra time to make sure that the boys understand what they are responsible for (probably because she has several boys of her own and knows that you can't remind them enough times to do anything!) We are very pleased with Nancy and would recommend her to anyone!

About Ashleigh
My name is Ashleigh and I am a professional writer. I write novels mostly, but I also write screenplays, stageplays, musicals, and the occasional short story or two. I have three years of education at the University of North Georgia, in their Film and Digital Media Production program. As a creative writing tutor, I hope to help you open your mind to see the world not only by your definite surroundings and what already is, but also by the infinite possibilities of what could have been and what still can be. For sessions, I can do something as simple as read a piece of fiction you've written and give you honest feedback, or I can meet with you multiple times, giving writing exercises, assignments, and feedback so that you can see your improvement from week one until the end of our time together.

This was my first lesson with Ashleigh and I already know she's going to take my writing to the next level. I feel so comfortable talking with her about my writing, and she's so knowledgeable! I feel like I'm getting amazing instruction and can't wait for my next lesson!

About Jamarius
I am a graduate of Alabama State University and have a Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics. I have years of experience helping students in the ASU mathematics lab. I also have experience tutoring high school students as part of the ASPIRE Mentoring Program and I have tutored elementary and middle school students as well. Topics that I have tutored include basic math, pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, and calculus.

While tutoring at ASU, I have modified my tutoring style to provide better service. What happens is that during the first few sessions, I get to know each person and some things about the course that they are taking such as the syllabus content, the type of grade the person wants in the course, the number of points each assignment is worth, and the date of the next major test. I then try to hold tutoring sessions in accordance w
ith this information. During a session, I go over homework, explain concepts that may be misunderstood, go over topics that I think are especially important, and sometimes give practice problems. I do a lot of visual explanations for concepts. Periodically, I would ask about the grade that was made on a recent test and modify my tutoring style if necessary. My goal is to help everyone that I tutor strengthen their mathematical skills.

Usually, I tutor by appointment and each session usually lasts for about 1 hour. In order to reschedule or cancel an appointment, I request a 24-hour notice. I am willing to meet in a public place or online.

I also make videos that cover math concepts in order to make it a little easier for students to get the information that they need to be successful. If you would like for me to make a video, please let me know!

Please contact me and we can get started.

About mirella
Hi! My name is Mirella. I was born and raised in Lecce, a small and beautiful city in Southern Italy. I received my Master’s degree in Philosophy from the University of Bologna and my PhD in Political Theory from University of Wales, UK. I am a certified teacher in Italy as well as in the US. After living and working in the UK, I moved back to Lecce and in 2017 I, my two kids and my husband Patrick, I moved to the US, Patrick's homeland. Here in the US, in beautiful Baltimore I started my teaching career as an Italian tutor.

Mirella is an amazing language instructor. I had studied Italian for a few years many years ago and was very nervous to start again, but I needed to show intermediate Italian abilities for my work. Mirella's warm personality and student-centered teaching style really put me at ease and unlocked my hidden intuitive foreign language energies and abilities. For Mirella, language is all about communication, and the realization under Mirella's guidance that we all know how to communicate--even if only roughly at first in a new language--greatly diminished my anxiety and self-consciousness at making inevitable mistakes. I looked forward to Mirella's lessons as a highlight of my week, with tremendous results!

About Jennifer
I knew History was my future at 5 years old when I didn't just dress up as any princess or queen, I dressed up specifically as Queen Elizabeth I. Medieval and Renaissance history have been my passion ever since. I figured out that maybe I should teach when I realized how much I annoyed my friends and family with my "did you know" tangents.

My degree is in European History with a minor in Sociology. I have a specialization in Monarchial studies (that is, the aristocratic families) and paleography (the study and transcription of ancient handwritten documents). I've taken extra classes along the way including a class on Richard III taught by the archeologist that discovered his body under a carpark in Leicester and a prolonged course in paleography that resulted in a book (Deciphering Secrets: Unlocking the Secrets of Medieval Spain by Dr.
Roger Louis Martinez-Davila/Uni. of Colorado).

I have worked with the Smithsonian, Zooniverse, and the University of Colorado on transcription projects including British WWI battle diaries, Ancient Greek papyri, and 14th-century Spanish Catholic Church documents.

I also love to travel and have visited many of the places I study. I've visited Switzerland, France, England, Denmark, Sweden, and Italy. I have toured the Tower of London, the Louvre, Notre Dame, Voltaire's chateau and village he designed Ferney-Voltaire, Jean-Jacques Rousseau's birthplace, St. Peter's (Jean Calvin's church) in Geneva, the Roman ruins in Lyon, St. Mark's Basilica in Venice, the Duomo and the Ponte Vecchio in Florence, the Vatican, and the Colosseum.

It may be needless to say but, I love sharing my knowledge and would love to share it with you!
