About Fiona K.

Saint Augustine, FL
View Full Profile

I have a very solid academic background in math and science and rich experience in working with students to improve their math proficiency.

About Fiona
I view teaching/education as my calling, by that I mean it is a profession that deserves life-time effort and dedication. I ascribe who I am and what I have accomplished to my parents and all my teachers. They instilled knowledge, the skill to learn, and the moral compass in me, which transformed me into an independent and contributing citizen who knows how to and when to make the right decision. I feel that to do the same as my teachers did to me is my responsibility to younger generations.

I hold a Ph.D. in chemistry. With a strong academic background in science and math, I have successfully helped many students improve their academic performance in math and science through tutoring.

In recent years, I have also tutored students in standardized exams. My expertise is MCAT chemistry and physics, SAT, GRE, and GMAT.

I can hel
p you achieve the score you need to enter your dream school.

I can provide one-to-one private tutoring according to your study needs or small group classes.

I enjoy having Fiona as a tutor for both chemistry and geometry. She is kind and makes the material easier to understand. Also, she is patient and takes her time in explaining the concepts to me, step by step. I love how she types some parts of the problems in the chat box. ~Genesis C.

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.

This was the most un-professional experience I have ever* had with anyone, I cannot believe how rude he was, & I remained nice the entire time, but beware he is out to only steal your money. Rather than showing me what I wanted to know, he wasted my time by changing my folders, folder settings, where I download to, all things to specify himself working on the computer and even re-named my files to his name. My ex is a Teacher & a long tern tutor. He recommended that I get a full lesson, maybe a few weeks, but at this time I simply wanted to know the v-lookuo function only, as I had the date ready to go, with a deadline. He refused to show it to me, as he said I had to learn the basics which I already know. He did not even open up Excel. If I had not been so specific with him, & even offered to hire him for a long term tutor session, I might be able to see him trying to show me the basics, but we never even got that far. He told me to buy a 3 pack, then when I went to do so he took the opton away, and said that I had to buy, 3 but separately. I understand from talking to others why he did this. He apparently had something come up, & had to go and disconnected our call, without saying anything aside from, "buy more at 9 am tomorrow". I think he thought he was with a 7 year old & must milk them all out every penn fast. I would personally have wanted the long term money instead of a quick 50$ something dollars. It was exactly as if he had no time for me but instead of saying he had personal engagements he took my money & left me hanging when I could ahve literally been fired from my job for not getting this report in, in time. I stayed up until dawn the next day to compete it by myself, with a local Craigslist person, who was so kind & professional & showed me what I needed on an immediate basis. No playing around the whole time. I spent more on the new tutor as he was so very smart & actually knew what he doing. I never, leave reviews. i may have left 1, or 2 at a locl restaurant that I adored, but this was something I felt I eeded to do, so YOU

About Julia A.

New York, NY
View Full Profile

I tutor grade school kids and increase their interest in the subject, be it reading, writing or math. Keeping the child interested in what they are learning and curious to learn more propels them toward higher learning in the future.

About Julia
Hi! My name is Julia A. I have been tutoring students of all ages and skill levels at learning centers, colleges, libraries and schools since 2008.

My instruction extends nationwide, with students from all corners of the US, utilizing online tutoring services such as Skype.

My main field of study is in MATH (trig, algebra, geometry, precalculus), CHEMISTRY (high school and college), and PHYSICS (high school and college).

I completed my Bachelors in Physics and Mathematics Education at Hunter University and have gained experience with both in-person and online group instruction and curriculum development.

Some examples of the students I have tutored are: Elementary school students preparing for State competitions and exams; High school and College students in preparance for entrance exams, and in subjects such as algebra, geom
etry, trig, precalc, chemistry and physics.

I do Regents and SAT/ACT prep for these subjects as well as the GRE (These are NYS based High School Preparatory Exams - do not hesitate to ask should you need assistance with the ones offered in your state/country).

In addition, I am thorough and meticulous, by paying special attention to how the student grasps information and retains it, I prepare individualized handwritten reviews, with supplemental material found online and in texts.

I assign homework to keep my students ahead of what is going on in class, and a visual and intuitive understanding of the concepts I present is important to me, so I use visual aids (diagrams and interactive models) to help my students integrate what they learn with me in real life situations.

My instruction includes:
1. Tutoring based on the school curriculum
2. Instruction on the home-schooling curriculum
3. Assisting those with a gap in going back to school/university.

I start with an assessment based on what the student has trouble with or last remembers covering in school, and prepare material going from there.

As a result, my students all have improved grades without any need for cramming before tests, and I encourage a stress-free and easygoing learning environment.

My lessons are fun and enthusiastic - these subjects are beautiful and will help open your mind to new ways of thinking - whatever your field of study!

Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools.
I see marked improvements in their grades for this past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise.
Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough.

About Amadou C.

Close
Chicago, IL

View Full Profile

From finding the sign of a trigonometric function in the quadrants of the Cartesian Coordinate Plane, to computing the angle of depression from the top of a lighthouse to the base of Lady Liberty, trigonometry has so many profound applications throughout a gamut of disciplines. Although it is very practical in our world, the theories that describe it are often a nightmare for high-school students. I am here to mitigate this 'Nightmare' into a very pleasant dream, by establishing a reference point in geometry and algebra from which to get a better angle of attack, which will result in complete comprehension in all of its major concepts. My students' grades in trigonometry experienced drastic changes after I dissected its visceral aspects, and scrutinized its every detail until I could effectively explain it to my students with very little rigor. Trigonometry has has tapped us out on several occasions, now it's time for you and I to defeat it by 'Tackling Trig'.

About Amadou
I am a distinguished graduate from Illinois Tech with a bachelor's of mechanical engineering. I make it my duty to break down many of the complexities in math, science and engineering that have been plaguing students since the beginning of time. I have over 10 years of teaching experience teaching students of all ages math, science and ACT/SAT prep who have went on to make 180 degree turns in their grades. This field experience has allowed me to develop the patience and understanding that is crucial in producing stellar students.

As an engineering-inclined individual, I encourage an exemplary study ethic in my students as well as an organized and systematic approach geared towards maximizing student grades/scores. I also bring results by relating to my students by incorporating elements of the things that they like (sports, hobbies, m
usic, etc...) into their most challenging courses allowing them to even potentially develop a passion for their most difficult courses. I always make a conscious effort to work at each student's own pace and I make it my priority to decompose the most challenging topics into components that can be more easily internalized by my students, effectively increasing their grades and giving them the self-confidence and enthusiasm they need to get killer grades. I guarantee quality, commitment, and results!

Having lived in over 20 countries has also permitted me to maintain my patience, composure and sense of flexibility and open-mindedness when dealing with even the most extreme personalities. I believe that everyone has potential; however potential is worthless unless put in motion. And experts like me take pride in our abilities to give students that push, that jolt of energy that galvanizes them into pulling themselves up by their own bootstraps, allowing them to achieve academic excellence.

About George
How's it going?! My name is George H. and I first got an opportunity teaching in 03-04 at a summer sailing camp for kids. We taught them how to operate sail boats and, amazingly, never had an accident! I play and teach guitar and bass guitar, as well as most sports. Played college football and hockey. I'm still attending school now to become a physical therapist, so any high schoolers or college students in need of tutoring for science classes (anatomy, physio, or chem), math, or even English can get help from me. I'm easy going and love helping and teaching people.

Hello,

With over 8 years experience in tutoring, I have learned what methods work and those that don’t. I’m upbeat, patient, easy going, empathetic, and generally well-liked by others. I’m very good at adapting to different learning styles and have a knack for eliciting the best out of my students through motivation and positive reinforcement.

Throughout university, and after, I mentored many students with great results. In addition to academics I helped them get the most out of their college experience. Everyone I helped benefited greatly, and one runs a very successful consulting business.

Aside from math and English, I’m a very proficient test and note taker. I speak conversational Spanish, and basic Japanese.

About Mitch
Whether you're completely lost, just need a little help, or need some test/note taking tips I can be very helpful. My patient, easy going, and positive mindset is very conducive to creating a great learning atmosphere. I can also be very useful to those that aren't motivated, I have a knack for finding the source of motivation for others.

Are you frustrated with the college application process? I can assist in this area and in aclimating to college environment. I've mentored many students through college, with great success.

Hope to work with you soon.
