James and I worked together for 4 months at an elementary school tutoring 3-5 graders in math and english. James is professional, intelligent, and creative. It was a pleasure working with him. He cares very much for the youth in our community.
We've stayed in touch via email and are developing a friendship I hope lasts a life time. He is good people.

About Kesley
I focus mainly in tutoring and managing group study sessions for English learners, whether they are international students or native speakers. I have spent the past five years teaching English, ESL and Creative Writing in various countries. I have a certificate in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and TKT (Teacher Knowledge Test: Young Learners), and am currently working towards acquiring a CBEST (California Basic Educational Skills Test) certification as well.

I like to teach in a fun and comfortable environment. My teaching philosophy is that learning should be exciting, not boring. It is much easier for students to learn a subject if they enjoy studying it. I am a very patient and understanding individual, so no matter the student's level, I always find a way to work the subject matter around their needs.

I look forwa
rd to our future classes together!

About Marwan S.

Close
Redwood City, CA

View Full Profile

I understand the difficulties of learning English, especially when coming from a completely different language such as Mandarin Chinese or Cantonese. As I learn more about the Chinese language, I've learned how to break the communication and cultural barriers.

I'd love to help improve English speaking, writing, communication, and overall understanding of the English language, specifically tailored for native Chinese speakers.

About Marwan
I started playing piano when I was 3, and began writing music at the age of 6. I've taught music and piano for over 12 years, and tutoring other subjects for over 5 years.

Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, I graduated from Cornell University in Electrical & Computer Engineering, with a minor in Music.

As a student, I was President of the Cornell Piano Society for 4 years. I spent much time teaching piano and music theory to fellow Cornell students, faculty, and staff. I've also organized many concerts, recitals, and events during my tenure.

After college, I went on to work for Intel & Apple as an engineer, while continuing to teach and tutor on the side. Later on, I founded my own startup company centered around Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Science, and unmet needs in the B2C market.

I typically travel
to each student's home for lessons. I travel all around the Bay Area: as far north as Richmond, as far south as Los Gatos, as far East as Livermore (and every place in between, including the Peninsula).

About Marie F.

Pacifica, CA

I have tutored English students from kindergarten through adult. I am a certified ESL teacher, so whether English is your first, second or third language I can help. My goals as an English teacher are to help you thoroughly understand what you read and to be able to express that understanding through speaking and writing. Whether a student is reading Dr. Suess, Dostoyevsky or Darwin, my goals as a teacher are the same.

I tailor my lessons individually to each student. I help you learn the way you learn best, and I teach you strategies to expand your English abilities. I would be happy to provide a free consultation to discuss English tutoring with you.

About Marie
I have been an educator for more than ten years. In that time, I've taught and tutored English, Language Arts and Spanish to students from elementary to PhD level. I also help students study for the SAT, ACT and TOEFL tests and coach students through the college and graduate school application process. I love teaching and learning. I am patient, enthusiastic and dedicated to my students.

My teaching philosophy can be summed up in a few words : learning should be fascinating, relevant, individualized and fun. Helen Keller said, “ A well-educated mind will always have more questions than answers.” My goal is to help my students ask the questions that will lead them to deeper understanding. The poet Mark Van Doren said, “The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.” In our lessons, I will help you make discoveries that will ins
pire you to keep learning.

When I’m not teaching, I love reading, exploring the California coast, writing poetry, meditation and singing loudly.

About Erika C.

San Jose, CA

I teach all ages and all levels of English. I have a BS in Journalism and the areas I teach include writing, reading, grammar and literary analysis. I have been tutoring for many years and enjoy reaching out to each student, to help strengthen their academic grades and build skills to enhance their confidence.

About Erika
I am from Chile and grew up in California. I received my Master's Degree in Spanish and a Bachelor's Degree in Journalism from San Jose State University. I teach Spanish and English, all levels and abilities. I love foreign languages and writing.

I have studied Spanish literature, culture, history and linguistics. I have also studied English literature, writing, advertising and editing. The best teachers and mentors I have had, have made learning fun and exciting. My goal is to always create an atmosphere where learning comes alive and becomes an enriching experience for the student.

A creative writing instructor I had years ago once said, "anyone can write." Well, I believe that with the right guidance and tools, a student can achieve the desired goals in writing, in learning a foreign language, and in any other subject or field.

I am enjoying the experience in learning a new language, however, I am used to South American Spanish, my instructor is from Argentina, there are dialect differences, thus making the translation and learning a bit difficult.
