I highly recommend, the best teacher I’ve had. Responsible! Caring!

I took TOEFL perpetration classes with Henry. He is very knowledgeable and a great teacher. Because of his experience in journalism he has amazing knowledge in writing, reading, speaking, He worked on my general English skills first because I thought I had enough proficiency in English while I didn't, and after some classes he started TOEFL, he definitely knows what area of English I was weak in so, step by step, he lead me in the right direction. He's very responsible and carrying. I got a higher score than I was expecting.

About Tania
Hello everybody,

Do you want to become proficient or more proficient in French? Learn or brush up on french the fast and easy way with a native French speaker?

I am here to help you! My name is Tania I am 27 years old and I am a native French speaker. French is my native language. I love the idea of being able to help and teach students about this beautiful and complex language. I actually got most of my experience tutoring elementary, middle school and high school students and I have been teaching languages for 3 years now. Studying different languages myself, I understand the obstacles that come with taking on a new language.

I can help if you simply want to brush up on practical usage for travel or to converse with friends -- or if you want to study grammar and more formal French for school or professional applications.

-
The lessons are goal-oriented, creative and fun.
- Personalized instruction to meet your needs from beginner to advanced levels in all disciplines: reading, writing and speaking.
- The lessons are designed to make you familiar with the French culture and civilization.
- Specialized in tutoring students of all ages to improve their French skills for school, travel or competition.
- Lesson plans, class times and rates are based on individual objectives.

A bientôt!

Tania is being a great tutor. My interest is to brush up my French after 10 years w/o any practice - focused on conversation. I am really appreciating the classes with her. She brings the right balance correcting what is needed but with encouragement and positiveness to keep you confident and engaged.

I highly recommend anyone who is either a beginner, or any level of French to use Tania as a tutor. I started to learn French at a very basic level and currently I feel very comfortable with the basics of the language. What I like the most about my lessons with Tania is that French is used throughout the duration of the lesson, which really helps one to be submerged into the language.

Tania has been working with me on my level. I have learned a lot and she has also refreshed my memory of what I had learned a few years back. Her classes are very practical. There is tons of conversation and grammar. I am able to apply what I learn right away. My comprehension has improved a lot as well. One of my favorite things is that she is a native speaker so I learn a more practical French with common day-to-day expressions, with many things I won't get from book. Very recommended!

Nancy is one of the best teachers i've ever had. Her lessons are engaging and productive. She communicates music in a way that is meaningful, constructive, and easily understood which for me are the most important and desirable elements learning music from scratch. With her majors in both performance and eduction, she is able to provide a hands-on teaching style integrated with the theory basis. Nancy is definitely the ideal teacher if you are looking for someone professional and fun to grow your music journey.

Antonietta has been wonderful with my 11 year old daughter, who is studying Italian in preparation for a summer trip to Italy. Antonietta is patient and ensures my daughter understands the lesson before moving on. She provides effective exercises that reinforce the concepts, which then can be used as a study guide between lessons. And just as important, my daughter likes working with her. I'm glad we chose Antonietta!

n San Jose, Monte Vista, Dougherty Valley, Foothill, Pleasanton, and more.

List of all schools I currently tutor and have tutored students from: www.wyzant.com/resources/blogs/467949/0705542376

I specialize in tutoring ALL subjects, math, science (chemistry, biology, physics, anatomy/physiology), English/reading/writing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~ My Education & Credentials ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I graduated with a degree from UCLA with high honors (Dean's Honors List, Magna Cum Laude) in Integrative Biology & Physiology. I also took many classes at UCLA in education, linguistics, history, and English. I had a cumulative GPA of 3.838 with 265.5 completed units at graduation and was a 10-time Dean's Honors List Recipient. I also was a member of the UCLA Regents Scholar Society, the Alpha Lambda Delta/Phi Eta Sigma National Honor Societies, the Alpha Epsilon Delta Pre-Health Honor Society, and Christian Students at UCLA. I worked as a TA for several undergraduate classes at UCLA, including Education 92F and Life Sciences 2-3. I also have gone through rigorous UCLA and Stanford University graduate-level coursework in science, math, educational strategies, and curriculum & instruction.

I have scored at the 98th percentile on the SAT I/II tests and received the highest score of 5 on multiple AP exams (see below for more details) as a high school student, achieving the AP Scholar with Distinction award by the end of my junior year. I have been the recipient of over $350,000 worth of many university merit-based invitational and scholarship honors and awards. Some of the most notable scholarships I have been awarded are the Regents Scholarship from both UCLA and UCSB. Both provided me with a large monetary award (full-ride), priority enrollment, 4 years of room and board, and many other privileges, honors, and incentives.

The SAT examinations that I have scored at 98th percentile or higher are as follows: SAT I; SAT II - Math 2; and SAT II - Biology (M). I also took many AP exams during high school, achieving the AP Scholar with Distinction award by the end of my junior year. Some of the exams that I have taken include: AP Physics B (Score = 5); AP Chemistry (Score = 5); AP Biology (Score = 5); AP Calculus AB (Score = 5); AP Statistics (Score = 5); AP US Government & Politics (Score = 5). I continuously study and retake the SAT, ACT, and AP Exams to stay on par with both the big and small changes each year to the exams.

~~~~~~~~~~~ My Personal Message to You ~~~~~~~~~~~

One of the wisest teachers once said that poor grades, study habits, and test scores are not life-threatening, but they are college-, job- , career-, and quality-of-life threatening. The most competitive students take a pro-active approaching to academics and tutoring while the least competitive take a reactive approach. All you need to do is watching the documentary 'Two Million Minutes' by Bob Compton to realize why students in other countries such as India and China surpass American peers in almost every subject, especially language (writing, grammar, etc.), math, science, and engineering-related subjects. They attend extra classes and tutoring from 6-7 AM in the morning to almost midnight.

In today's fast-paced and competitive job market, there is simply too much to lose by not investing now in your child's or your education. If a student is struggling, it makes sense to get him/her the help needed so that the time spent in school is worthwhile. Great grades and test scores can open doors that may have been previously closed and are also significant factors when determining scholarships, so investing time and effort now can pay off substantially in the future. Finally, let's not forget the most important part in all of this: the student. The confidence, knowledge, and skills that a student gains through effective tutoring can last a lifetime.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch. Every day spent waiting is another class or lecture's worth of material that you might potentially fall behind or another low quiz/test/exam score that will only make it harder to recover from. I have had too many students who could have received the grade(s) they wanted had they contacted me from the beginning.

Alan tutored me in high school for an AP Statistics class that, let's face it, I should never have attempted in the first place. He was very patient and kind while helping me to understand things step by step and no matter how frustrated I was in myself, he never gave up on helping me! By far the best tutor I have ever had :)

Alan reviewed several of my papers from my Christian Studies classes at North Greenville University. He was extremely helpful and helped me receive an A on one of my papers for a hermeneutics class. I would highly recommend Alan as a tutor. He was very helpful for me and I have no doubt he will be a big help to others!

About Dianne
Hello, I am a certified teacher and also an engineer. My main goal as an educator is to help students realize their true potential. Beyond helping my students complete homework or learn a new skill I provide them with tools for success. I teach my students so they can take charge of their learning.

I hold a Masters Degree in Education with an emphasis in Bilingual/Bicultural Education. Prior to earning my masters degree, I was a bilingual educator for six years. In addition, I have conducted research in language acquisition and math and have been trained using research based learning strategies. I also hold a Bachelors Degree in Mechanical Engineering and worked six years in this field.

I work with students all ages. I am available for homework, homeschooling, and enrichment activities. Before meeting with my students, I gather the ne
cessary information in order to create a lesson plan that will meet the student's specific needs. I have extensive experience in curriculum design. My approach to teaching is student-centered. I use a variety of methods to ensure that students are active participants in the learning process and get the most out of instruction.

I have worked with students with special needs including, learning disabled, ADHD and gifted and talented. When planning my lessons, I make sure that the activities included are appropriate for the student and use students feedback in future planning.

Matías and I first met through the Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching program in 2008 and have remained in touch ever since. We have worked together and collaborated thtoughout the years in various ways. Matías is a dedicated and experienced teacher who strives to create memorable and practical lessons. He likes making students think out of the box and often brings his interests to the classroom, making for a content-based class. He is creative and tries new methodologies and ideas, as he is up-to-date on the latest language teaching trends. He is also fun and kind-hearted. I strongly recommend Matías and doubt you'll find a better language teacher.
