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

Nicholas has been teaching my daughter vocal lessons for about 11 months and he’s fantastic!

She’s improved so much in 10 months! He’s awesome and delivers results! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and she’s just 9 years old and has developed so much due to his mentor ship. My daughter also has an aptitude for singing and tends to catch on to his instructions quickly.

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.
