I tutor children from K-5. I like the Singapore math method and experience with common core math from K-5. I am a big believer of Kumon style of math that some facts just simply have to have the repeated practice in order to gain fluency which is very similar to learning another language but I make the learning an enjoyable experience.

About Kana

I love teaching especially language as I am passionate about language. I also speak Chinese and currently learning Spanish. I have been teaching Japanese about 20 years from the age of 2 to adults. I do not just teach but I also try to give you the culture/background of the Japanese language. I

Writing is a challenge, and without the right guidance, it can be difficult to overcome the built-in intimidation factor. It's my goal to break through those barriers. I have several years of experience in the field as both teacher and tutor. I currently teach English classes at a University and tutor students throughout the Bay Area. My specialties are working with students aged 16-20, but have comfort and experience with ages far outside that range as well. I'm a patient, understanding tutor, and I work well with confident writers and writers still trying to learn the English language -- as well as everyone in between. I know what it takes to write an essay for high school and college classes; I also know how to help you understand what instructors are looking for and how to improve you writing so you don't need regular tutoring going forward.

Improving writing is a challenging process. I applaud you for taking the first steps toward enhancing this fine craft.

About Matt

Hi! I'm an experienced writing teacher and tutor who works regularly with high school and college students. Because I teach college English and writing courses, I know what to focus on when tutoring students. I know writing is a difficult and intimidating task, so I take pride in my patience and ab

Kimberly spent extra time with my 9 yo daughter on an audition prep. She helped her along with many tips and I felt refined her self tape significantly. She is very pleasant and my daughter connected with her well. Thanks Kimberly, she looks forward to another session with you!

I have been a creative writer since I was around twelve years old. I remember writing four chapters of a dystopian romance novel around fifteen and while I don't remember the story, I remember the thrill of writing. I've written poetry, short stories and am working on my first novel that is likely to be a series. I've attended Writers Conferences where I've met made connections and had my picture taken, so I'm very immersed in the writing world. I love to write and would love to help you with your writing projects/assignments. Everyone is a writer, even you, you just have to listen to your mind and slow things down. :)

About Katherine

I love to write and love to help others. Writing and storytelling has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I'm actually working on my first story, now, which will likely become a series. What's thrilling is my Creative Writing Professor said that the premise of my story reminded him of "T
