Lessons with Philippe are a true pleasure. He is well-read, articulate, and funny. He takes the time to get to know his students and focuses the lessons around conversations and areas of interest. I have experienced immense improvement to my vocabulary and grammar, as well as in my confidence to speak and "think in French." I most appreciate that Philippe is not shy about providing useful feedback or recognizing hard work and improvement. Would highly recommend.
Nox
I have been studying french with Philippe since October 2020 and have seen a remarkable improvement in my french. He is a very diligent teacher who makes the class very interesting. He tailors it to the student's interests and is easily able to identify areas that require improvement and focus on that. He has helped me with grammar, reading, and listing. I would highly recommend end him for anyone serious about improving french.
Charles
I take lessons with Mr. Philippe, and I am extremely impressed by his teaching method. I have previously taken French classes with different institutions and numerous instructors, and I evaluate Philippe as being one of the best if not the best instructor I have ever had. I base it on the way I am currently performing with all 3 skills (Speaking, Reading , and Writing). The best part is that I feel relaxed and confident in class. Philippe knows how to work with a student to get the best out of you, without affecting confidence. Tremendous skill. I highly recommend Philippe as an instructor for French.

I am a chemical engineer and as an engineer, you can never ignore maths because Mathematics is the language of physical science and engineering, Mathematics is more than tool for solving problems; mathematics courses can develop intellectual maturity. Mathematics is a part of everyone's life. Every student should experience the thrill of mathematical discovery. Every teacher can appreciate the elegance of a great mathematical insight.I also offer tutoring services in Prealgebra, Algebra 1;2, Pre calculus, Calculus, Geometry, Trigonometry.My experience in tutoring Maths have led me to compile my own practice sheets in each topic that has helped the students in so many years. My teaching philosophy is straightforward: teach your students as you would want to be taught - with enthusiasm, and with a passion for the subject combined with respect and understanding for the students. When teaching maths I make sure that the basics are grasped well because this is the only subject that ...

Alisha is extremely well-informed and an expert in Organic Chemistry. She knows exactly what she is talking about and, more importantly, *understands* it and can articulate the concepts in a way that is easy to comprehend. She is patient with me and is willing to go slowly on practice problems so I can fully grasp the concepts and theory. I would hire Alisha again in a heartbeat.

I have been a Substitute Teacher for the Charles County Public Schools since September 2018. I started working with Grade 1and 2. During the second half of the year, I began to substitute for the 3's, Pre-K, Kindergarten, and Grade 1. It wasn't until the second half of the year, I started to enjoy helping children one on one in the Special Education Program. This is where I could concentrate on one or a small group of students who needed extra help with their classwork. I specialize in Reading, Reading Comprehensive, and Writing up to Grades 2. My students have told me that I am patience, I make learning fun, and I am very creative teaching the children at their learning pace.

I believe that I am qualified to tutor writing, because I have done very well in my college writing classes, at one point I considered being a writing minor. I have been recommended by professors to submit poetry to the university's newspaper. In addition to this, I received an award for embodying one of our writing departments main ideals, and a paper I submitted on a problem within American society was accepted to a day where students give 50-minute talks/presentations on their work. Finally, when I was in high school I went to the state level for a creative writing competition, and was the only one in my school in attendance for writing.

About Alexander

I started to, formally, tutor when I was in high school; I was recommended by my anatomy teacher at the time to tutor another student who needed help. In terms of informal tutoring, when I was growing up I would help my friend's younger siblings in subjects such as math or science. In college, I wo

Tell your story. Discover your voice.
Creative Writing • Songwriting • Public Speaking

NPR's Here & Now described me as "Writing and singing full-frontal." I am a spoken-word artist, musician and public speaker. I specialize in Creative Nonfiction (diary, memoir, telling your story with vivid details). I love to capture memories. I love writing from real life. It is said that I captivate my audiences with my ability to tell a vivid, memorable, meaningful, and true story.

In our Creative Writing lessons, I teach you how to wander through the sensory details of your life and craft your life experience into a work of creative nonfiction that you, your loved ones, and if you choose, your audiences will treasure like a precious gift.

You will discover the power in your unique voice, the importance of the facts of your life, the glory in the details, and the thrill of seeing your life become art. We can work at your pace, word by word, or page by page.

About Licity

I love relating to all kinds of people. People love to tell me their stories and I love to hear them. I help you hear your story and then tell your own stories through song, writing, and speaking. I believe that creativity is a path to healing and must involve a deep connection to our emotions.

"Fawn truly cares about my progress and helping me succeed. I never thought I would be able to change my voice, my audience impact and stage presence, but she made that happen. It was surprisingly not so difficult because she is great at troubleshooting and figuring out solutions to get you where you need to be. She will even invent new exercises and do whatever it takes to get you to be the best you. I am always excited to work with Fawn, she keeps me in check and keeps me moving forward."

"I highly recommend Matt for his math tutoring services. I increased my OAR (Officer Aptitude Rating) score 10 points after six weeks of tutoring with Matt, making my new score very competitive. Scheduling long-distance tutoring sessions once a week was easy and the length was perfect (1.5 hours). He showed me how to visualize word problems, which is what I needed. He's personable and easy-going and I found his familiarity with military aptitude exams extremely valuable."

He is always on time and excellent in subject matter.

"I can't say enough about Aalok. His wealth of tutoring experience is certainly a major advantage, however his dedication and work ethic was what impressed us the most. What started out as just a few tutoring sessions for physics evolved into a wonderful relationship, guiding my son through his SATs and ACTs. Unlike many tutors' rigid availability schedules, Aalok went out of his way to work with my son's demanding high school schedule. He established a sincere rapport with my son and continues to touch base with him even now that he's at college. I am happy to recommend Aalok -- he is an exceptional young man and an excellent tutor."
