It is my grasp of foreign languages that makes me an effective English teacher. For instance, learning the complex grammar of Latin and Greek gave me a thorough understanding of English grammar and the ability to relate to other people’s native languages. I have spent many hours proofreading papers for international students. They find my instruction especially informative because I not only fix mistakes but provide an explanation. When I point out the patterns of grammar, similar mistakes show up less and less, and my students feel more confident that they are writing sentences correctly.

I learned English teaching methods through my tutoring experience. Over a span of four months, I gave a Turkish visiting scholar a systematic overview of English grammar and allowed him to apply it through conversation.

I can help your child to become a stronger and more confident reader.

I believe that reading should be fun. If a child loves to read then there’s no limit to what they can learn and discover. Therefore my lessons are engaging and designed to resonate with the student.

I also believe that building confidence is a priority. I can help students improve their reading comprehension skills without overwhelming them.

I've worked with elementary school students since 2015. My style teaching style is compassionate and friendly.

I am a Christian Pastor and have over 20 years of Bible Study experience. You can expect to learn, understand and apply the things found in the Holy Bible to real-life situations. A lot of students read the Bible but have a hard time making a connection between the things that are written and how they are applied in real life. I can teach you both what those things mean and how they are used today.

"Colin helped me through the last semester of IB Calculus. He would email me two days before each lesson so he was prepared with a relative lesson plan for our hour long weekly session of review. He even created a video explaining a topic I was stuck on and sent it to me after our weekly session. I wouldn’t have gotten an A in the last semester without him. Thanks Colin."

"After graduating high school and going into college, I can not express enough how grateful I am to have been taught by Mrs. Hill. Her notes and lessons are very organized and she knows where she what direction she wants her student's mind to head. Currently I am taking calculus in college and after having her class it feels like a breeze. Compared to other students in my class I feel very prepared and I do not stress at all over the class. In fact, there have been times I have had to teach other students to help them. This was all thanks to Mrs. Hills' teaching. Without her I would be in the same place as them. The way she taught was very nice and allowed you to learn the material well. Not only is she good at teaching she is also good at connecting with students. Many people leave high school and never want to see their teachers again, that is not the case with Mrs. Hill. She made the class a very comfortable and welcoming environment and I even contact her to this day just to say what's up. Not only did I feel like I gained a good education thanks to her but also a good friend. I highly recommend to anyone seeking help in any subject she teaches."
