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 Fabio
I'm a published author on photography and video production magazines and honored professor at major Brazil universities, teaching video production. My passion for teaching and tutoring involves the Brazilian Portuguese and Technology. I lived in Rio de Janeiro for more than 30 years and worked with several companies on translation projects for the Brazilian market. I'm sure I'll be able to offer you the best tutoring on Portuguese for business and travel, and everything you need to be an excellent photographer and videographer.

I'm a Mac specialist since 2000, with daily use of editing software such Lightroom since it's first version.

Being a photographer since 14, video production was a natural parallel art, which I embraced in 1980.

I really know how to transmit all knowledge I have, which is based on decades of work (photo an
d video), and years living in Brazil. I'm very didactic and I invite you to have the best learning experience taught by a passionate professional.

Fabio is an awesome teacher! He is very knowledgeable but very easy to to talk to and explains things in a way that makes sense to me. I am really enjoying my classes so far and have already learned quite a bit (who knew there was more to photography than just point and shoot? lol). If you are looking to invest in your career or education, you will not regret giving his classes a try.

About Kat
How about a relaxed, fun and natural way of learning American Sign Language? Let's try some lessons together. I teach in an interactive and empowering way where discovering the beauty of this visual language and the valuable culture cherished by Deaf and Hearing Americans is part of every lesson.

I cater lessons to match your learning style and communication needs. Your classes will also have music, role-play, games and story telling. I have taught ASL and Deaf Culture to many different students and groups: K-12 students, families with special needs children, college students, interpreting students, professionals, families with Deaf children, adults, home schoolers, choirs, and dance troops.
I am a certified Interpreter with the National Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf and have been a professional interpreter and ASL instructor
since 1991. I am a certified teacher in the state of Connecticut and hold an MS in education, a BA in Communications Human Relations/Interpreting.

About Genoveva
I am Genoveva, I am Spanish and I graduated in Primary Education Degree and Classic Music (guitar) bachelor. In addition, I have been doing several courses related to teaching Spanish as a foreign language as well as courses about teaching a second language acquisition.

Concerning my experience working with children in a classroom setting in a Primary School, in November 2011, I undertook an internship in a Primary School as part of my Teacher Training Degree, which allowed me to get closer to the reality of the classroom. After that, I did two internships more in different schools. I found the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable and I learnt many skills for the future, especially, the importance of an effective communication and a cooperative work.

Furthermore, I did an internship from September 2013 to June 2014 as Spanish Teacher
Assistant in two different faculties of Fontys University in Tilburg. (The Netherlands): Fontys University of Applied Sciences and Fontys University Economy and Business. I have to admit that this experience was wonderful and it made me to be more and more interested in the Spanish Teacher world. In addition, this great opportunity gave me the chance to improve my classroom management strategies and learn about adult education too. At the same time, during my stay in The Netherlands, I attended a teacher training course of Spanish at the Instituto Cervantes of Utrecht, specializing in dynamic activities for teach lexicon, grammar and syntax among adult people. I also attended another course from Instituto Cervantes this year to have the capacity to analyze Spanish oficial exams.

Recently, I have finished a training course to teach Spanish as a foreign language in ‘Universidad Europea de Madrid’ and I am very motivated to continue training for the future too.
Teaching Spanish as a foreign language is one of my biggest vocations.
Nowadays, I work as a Spanish teacher in Lake Oconee Academy in Greensboro.

About Virginia
Hi Guys!!
I love to teach and I would love to guide you on your English, Spanish and swimming lessons!
A little about me.. I graduated from Florida Atlantic University in Finance, and I am now completing a Masters at Nova Southeastern University in Criminal Justice.

English is my first language and also my favorite subject. I can guide you on how to pronounce words correctly, read, learn to speak fluently and confidently, and also teach you how to write papers for work/school.

I have speaking Spanish my whole life, (when I was a little girl- I was always the class translator for students that just got to the United States, since they couldn't communicate well) Iv'e been doing this for a very long time!

For the swimming lessons I have many references, and I will come to your house! I have been teaching for many years as it was
my first job! (My boss always gave me the kicking, crying and screaming kids) I can definitely deal with all types for personalities.

Please let me know if you have any questions for me, I would glad to answer you!
-Virginia

Great teacher. I have enjoyed every private and group lesson I have taken with Vanessa. She is very patient with me and is willing to answer my many questions.

The review sessions, at the end of the lessons, have been a great way to reinforce the vocabulary and concepts covered during the lessons.

I am learning a great deal in a short time thanks to teachers like Vanessa.
