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 fin

I teach Spanish and English. I've been teaching English for more than 20 years and Spanish for 8 years. I like to focus my classes on students needs. The most important is to make them feel comfortable and motivated. I use a lot of vocabulary, shown with drawings or materials to show examples. My goal is to make students speak the language in a very natural and easy way.

Vania is an excellent Spanish instructor

I've taken many Spanish lessons that have ranged from various software programs to personal tutors. Vania is great. She knows how to relate with each person in order to convey concepts. She's the best I have worked with.

She's also very accommodating, since I tend to change my schedule around a lot. She is always flexible to accommodate. Vania is simply great.

"Lt. Colonel Rivera is the best instructor/tutor I have encountered in my four years of college grade academia. His mastery of finance and military history/philosophy has had a direct positive impact on my career path and education level that cannot be overstated. Lt. Colonel Rivera will be the wisest instructor you'll have the honor of learning under. He will turn your failing grades in mid semester to 90%+ final grades with the work ethic and educational adaptability found only in higher level military education. You -will- become a better human being just by conversing with him. His leadership has that impact upon everyone he encounters. With his educational tenacity and understanding of the material, your grades will improve and exceed your wildest expectations. I speak from experience as my failing grade in finance became a 91% and my other classes rose from 83s and 86s to 95s and 97s. You hire this tutor and you get not only that but a mentor and role model. Consider Lt. Colonel Rivera as a instructor if you're serious about your immediate and continued success in academics, life, and career choice."

"I have been doing tutoring with William for a couple weeks now and he is amazing at guiding me through the bumpy road of AP Physics. Although communication means can be a bit difficult since I was a newbie to the whole "online tutoring" thing, I realized that it was worth the struggle. Before, I had very little knowledge on the subject and did not understand most of what I was doing. William was very patient and explained every step to getting the solution on the endless problems I gave him, plus he knew every answer without even thinking twice! Even though I have a very tight schedule, he is super understanding about my constant changes in tutoring times. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a very polite and helpful tutor for physics!!!"

"Excellent tutor! Daniel tutored my 13 year old son in Physics. My son went from being completely lost to getting an A in the class. Very professional, explains topics clearly, connects well with student. My son loved the Skype/online white board method of teaching. No need to go anywhere or sit in traffic. Daniel was flexible with setting up lessons and even made time when urgently needed, like before a test. My son had a great experience and can't wait to learn with Daniel again when he gets to HS physics."

Gerardo explained the concepts where my son needed assistance, showed an example, and then observed Matt as he tried to work the problem on his own, adding assistance as needed. It was the right balance of support. Gerardo knew the concepts thoroughly even though it was the first meeting."

"Mrs. Branch was my teacher for 3 years on Orcas island. Due to family and health struggles I often wanted to give up on ever graduating. However thanks to her dedication and passion for education not only did I graduate but she also relight my dream of one day teaching. I now teach in the very rooms she taught me and encouraged my education. The math lessons that I once despised her for assigning are now ones I used on a daily basis and am so glad she did not let me stop until I fully understood them."
