Ozzie L.

Book Now

I have about 10 years of experience tutoring middle school, high school, or college-level mathematics, as well as a B.S. and M.A. in math. I have helped students with subjects in algebra, college algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, and calculus. Additionally, I have offered assistance with standardized tests such as the SAT. I have also taught high school and college math for a year each. Over these years, I've learned how to be more effective in breaking through any confusion that students had. I will hone in on all that's challenging you and work to refine your skills. I know that math can seem overly theoretical and abstract sometimes and as a result, it is crucial in making the concepts more relatable.

I've had a book published and have written for a multi-national newspaper. I also got A grades right up until I finished college with English and Creative Writing. My style of teaching is very relaxed and informal, I want students to feel they can be equals with me, and gain confidence and be proud of their work. I set homework but I also encourage students to get creative in their own time and to show initiative! The most rewarding thing is that with writing, you can nowadays find so many outlets for your work - the sky's the limit!

Lessons can involve looking at literature and different styles of writing, as well as finding something that sparks the imagination and interest. I work especially well with young teens and pre-teens, as well as those who are looking to further their writing skills.

I really enjoyed lessons with Emilie! She is well organized and has a clear lesson plan for each session, with follow up homework and exercises. I learned so much about technique and the "how to" of drawing. Everything she put together was appropriate for my level and included exercises that challenged me to improve. I could tell Emilie is well trained and skilled at drawing. She is also very nice and I felt relaxed and comfortable with her. Her studio is warm and inviting. Overall it was a great experience and I am looking forward to taking some additional lessons with Emilie!

So happy to have found Emilie! I work for a family with a four year old child who is extremely engaged in art and we wanted to find private lessons for her. Emilie has been extremely accommodating and very intentional in making sure we were ready for our first lesson. Will be scheduling more lessons and look forward to her being apart of my charges explorative learning!

Our understanding of and ability to utilize language has a major impact on the course of our lives. Personally, it affects the way we communicate, develop, and even behave in everyday interactions and relationships. Professionally, it dictates how efficiently and effectively we communicate with employees, colleagues, managers, and clients, which in turn affects our performance, potential, and ultimately, our income.

I work with writers, editors and publishers, students, linguists from translators to quality managers, and a variety of professionals who seek ways to get the most value out of their content.

Language should always have a function. My main goal is to help you ensure that your language and content function in the most valuable way possible for either yourself or your business.

For over half a decade I worked in the Language Service Provider (LSP) industry in multiple roles such as: Project Management, Operations, Client Relationship Management, and Account ...

I coached middle school students in academic mathematics competitions, such as the AMC 8/10 and Mathcounts, during the 2010-2011 academic school year at American Indian Public Charter School. My students received multiple awards during my first year as a math coach.

I also have experience tutoring AP and Honors courses in the social sciences and English. My students have achieved high scores on their end-of-year exams.

I worked as a tour guide at my alma mater's admissions office (Claremont McKenna College). Moreover, I have experience reviewing personal statements and resumes for college applications. Should you have any questions about the college admissions process, please don't hesitate to let me know.

As your teacher, I am committed to serving your needs according to your learning style as we embark on this new academic journey.

I believe that everyone has a story to tell, and I work with each student to find the method that will unlock their full writing potential. I approach my classes and tutoring sessions with humor and work with each student to improve their writing, leading to clearer, more engaging work.

Andrea works at the Writing Center at Grace Church School, a leading independent high school in lower Manhattan. I've taught there for the last couple years and make a point to send my students to the Writing Center (and her specifically, whenever possible) if they are struggling with any areas of their writing.

I've observed her in the Writing Center on a number of occasions, and she always does a great job navigating the difficult balance between helping students directly, and creating a path for them to work through questions on their own. She is direct, but supportive. She also is very perceptive of students' anxiety levels - many are kids who tend to stress about college and grades often - and how to change her tone, or comment with a personal anecdote, when what the student needs most is a moment to laugh or calm down.

Andrea's best skill in my opinion is teaching her tutees to adjust their priorities based on a deadline. She consults students whose papers are due in a couple of hours, and others who have a whole week left, and without being preachy gets across realistic expectations of what can be done within the timeframe.

Andrea connected with my daughter right away, encouraging her to push her writing in more creative directions. Andrea brought her bright personality to each lesson, making the writing process fun for my daughter. Together, they worked on her college admissions essay and a few English class assignments. Andrea helped my daughter overcome her writer's block and anxiety about writing to craft more personal, thoughtful essays. We are very pleased with the results!
Josh
My daughter had a great experience with Andrea as a writing tutor. Andrea helped her with her college admissions essay and she is attending Vassar in the fall - very pleased. Andrea is very patient, punctual, and has helped Claire gain confidence in her writing.

"Marta was my teacher for a few years, she helped me in many ways. First she helped me to get my GED when I decided that was the right path for me. Then a few years later I decided that I wanted to join the US Army, which I learned that I needed my high school diploma to join. So I went back to Marta, and she set me on the path I needed to be on tocomplete the rest of my high school work to get my diploma. Through all of that, she was also helping me study for the ASVAB, which is the entrance exam for the military; it covers a wide range to subjects from general science, arithmetic reasoning and mathematic knowledge to mechanical comprehension and word knowledge. Because of Marta’s hell, I successfully got my GED, High School diploma, and passed the ASVAB with a good score. I would absolutely recommend Marta, she makes learning enjoyable and sets people up for success!"

What Types of Creative Writing Prompts Work Best for Kids?

Kids who love to write may be off and running once the pen hits their hand, but other children might not feel comfortable writing unless given a few creative writing prompts. Creative prompts encourage imagination and provide a jumping off point for journal entries and stories. Even children who love to write may find it easier to work from a prompt because it gives them an area of focus - and it's fun! As a parent, one of the best ways to encourage your child's love of the written word is to pr …
