Hello,

With over 8 years experience in tutoring, I have learned what methods work and those that don’t. I’m upbeat, patient, easy going, empathetic, and generally well-liked by others. I’m very good at adapting to different learning styles and have a knack for eliciting the best out of my students through motivation and positive reinforcement.

Throughout university, and after, I mentored many students with great results. In addition to academics I helped them get the most out of their college experience. Everyone I helped benefited greatly, and one runs a very successful consulting business.

Aside from math and English, I’m a very proficient test and note taker. I speak conversational Spanish, and basic Japanese.

I can help with grammar, syntax, pronunciation, and essay writing skills. I have helped 1st through university students with essays and have won thousands of dollars in essay contests.

About Mitch

Whether you're completely lost, just need a little help, or need some test/note taking tips I can be very helpful. My patient, easy going, and positive mindset is very conducive to creating a great learning atmosphere. I can also be very useful to those that aren't motivated, I have a knack for fin

Learning Chinese characters are key to improve practical Chinese. Why? You know, Chinese is so different from any other language in the world. For instance, its pronunciations (Pin Yin) are so diverse that it always makes learns headache in conversation or improving Chinese only by memorizing Pin Yin. However, all kinds of Chinese can use and understand same Chinese characters in live communication. thus, based on my teaching experience, I will guide you to really improve Chinese by focusing on Chinese characters while enjoying Chinese traditional culture and practicing a little bit skills of Chinese calligraphy. Trust you and me.

We're moving to Beijing next month, so Monique was great at tailoring our lessons to our specific needs (for instance, restaurant, airport, and "getting around" vocab). She's a great, patient teacher and is very flexible with scheduling."
