I recently took an intro to piano class from Marshal via Zoom. He e-mailed the course .pdf materials promptly after booking so that I could visually go over the lesson ahead of time. He had an easy going manner about himself and was okay with me interrupting on several occasions to ask a question or tell him I already knew the material being taught. Definitely recommended for beginners and children!

I was failing genetics and with online tutoring i went from a 69% to A. He really has your best interests in mind, when i asked him last minute to help and he was too packed helping other students he referred me to another well rounded tutor. dr. Z is worth the wait since he has a lot of patience for disabled students, he truly enables them. Thank you for helping me accomplish such a tough subject.
Mary I.
I just started nursing school at UCLA and had failed my first midterm. Dr. Z was really supportive and taught me how to study. He really knew how to teach the material. After tutoring with him on a daily basis, my grade went up to an A on the final, and I received an A- in the class ! Whoo!!!. This tutor is excellent in every way and I highly recommend him!

I'm a certified reading teacher. I love books, I love imagination, I love teaching people to "see" their stories, but I also love helping them grow in their ability to read and understand what they've read. When a person struggles with knowing how to pronounce or understand the words, reading becomes too much trouble. This is where I come in. I have strong skills in teaching pronunciation, phonics, letter-sound strengths. I'm very patient and willing to help students every step of the way. Just call on me.

Online Reading Teacher

Hello there! I have my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education (K-5) and I am extremely passionate about literacy and reading instruction. I am also currently a 1st grade teacher. I used research-based best practice when teaching reading. Younger students will develop strong phonemic awareness (identifying and manipulating sounds orally), phonological awareness (the sounds that letters make), and decoding strategies. For older students, we will work on comprehension strategies, morphology, and critical thinking with texts. I will eventually be pursuing my Doctorate degree in Biliteracy. I also write academic articles in areas involving early childhood education (specifically for English Language Learners and multilingual education). I also speak Italian, Spanish, and Greek.

Austin is a master reading teacher who understands the reading acquisition process inside and out, and develops students' skills via culturally responsive instruction that builds on what kids already know. He is fluent in multiple languages and has an extraordinary care and kindness for young students. I can't recommend him highly enough.
Liz
As a mom who started online reading lessons reluctantly after prior bad experiences with "zoom school", I was pleasantly shocked at how well my son responded to Austin's online instruction. My son made impressive progress and really liked his lessons. The instruction was fun and engaging, and his enthusiasm was genuine. I would highly recommend him as a reading tutor!
