About Amadou
I am a distinguished graduate with Summa Cum Laude honors from Ivy Tech College. I make it my duty to break down many of the complexities in math and science that have been plaguing students since the beginning of time. I have over 7 years of teaching experience, and I have taught several middle-school and high-school students math, science and ACT/SAT prep who have went on to make 180 degree turns in their grades under my instruction. And because I have worked with such a vast diversity of people over the span of 16 countries throughout the world, I have developed the patience and understanding that is crucial in producing stellar students. Age has never been a problem with me, as I've helped several post-graduate students straighten out their grievances in math and science.

As an engineering major at IIT, I naturally maintain an ex
emplary study ethic that inspires my students to achieve more. I bring results. I relate to my students by incorporating elements of the things that they like (sports, hobbies, music, etc...) into their most challenging courses allowing them to develop a passion for the courses I tutor. Additionally, I always make a conscious effort to work at each student's own pace and I make it my priority to decompose enigmatic topics into components that can be more easily internalized by my students, effectively increasing their grades and giving them the self-confidence and enthusiasm they need to fuel their future academic endeavors. I guarantee quality, commitment, and a passion for training my students to be the best.

I have lived in over 20 countries, which allowed me to speak several languages, and which permitted me to maintain my patience, élan and spirit of enthusiasm when dealing with even the most extreme personalities. I have solid background in both math and the natural sciences, as I have consistently maintained a 4.0 G.P.A since high school. I am now studying mechanical engineering at IIT, and I have gotten 5s in all of my AP Chemistry, AP Physics and AP Biology exams. I have also been the winner of many STEM-related competitions, through my demonstrating of exemplary leadership qualities and through my brainstorming of blue-sky ideas. I am also a "Mental-Math" practitioner, reflexologist and guitarist. I believe that everyone has potential; however potential is worthless unless put in motion. And experts like me value ourselves in our abilities to give students that push, that jolt of energy that galvanizes them into pulling themselves up by their own bootstraps, allowing them to achieve academic excellence.

We only had one lesson with Amadou, but he was very nice and easy to schedule with. We're trying out a few different teachers to find the right fit, but are definitely considering Amadou in our top choices. Thank you!

About Wolfgang
I spent two decades of my professional life teaching English in Germany, authoring and co-authoring textbooks for the English classroom.
During my stay in the US, I had the opportunity to develop curricula for teaching German in public schools as well as private schools and wrote articles in the field of German literature. Undoubtedly, my academic background (MA in German and English and a Ph.D. in the field of education) helps me to provide solid work for my students.

What is my approach? First of all, I listen carefully, very carefully. I believe it is important for an excellent job to know precisely what my client wants to accomplish. Understanding this is the prerequisite to give good advice, guidance and then, of course, a plan, a kind of strategy to follow in order to reach these goals.

There is no dogma; there is only one
main criterion: success.

Most highly recommended! I found Wolfgang to be an excellent German instructor for me. As a mature (50+) professional I was looking for a native German with perfect mastery of English and impeccable teaching credentials. Wolfgang fit that description perfectly. He tailored the lessons to my needs and made them fun. Along with the excellent language lessons, I really enjoyed his stories about life in Germany, and especially his hometown of Berlin. Thanks to Wolfgang I am much farther along my journey of learning to speak German.

Wolfgang was top notch. He understood and catered to both my learning needs and my chaotic schedule. His knowledge of the German language and its history only exists from a native speaker, and his skill with instruction only comes from decades of experience. Lessons were always informative and fun!

About Pablo
How are you!

Learn Spanish as easily as you learned English!
You are going to start speaking and even thinking in Spanish from the very beginning!

I taught people of different ages and profession. I have also taught people who just want to learn Spanish because they love the way I teach the Spanish culture!

The primary goal is to develop speaking and comprehension skills.
By the end of the course, you'll be able to have a social, or even business conversation with Spanish speakers.

I am native speaker. I will teach you universal Spanish, as it is spoken in Latin America and Spain. No localisms!

The courses are online. I will also be exposing you to some of the culture in Latin America.

For about a year I took private lessons to learn Russian. One hour a day, twice a week with assignments in between. Victoria is a native speaker and her knowledge and expertise were amazing.

If Victoria felt comfortable she would travel to you and teach you in your own home. I learned a lot in that period of time and wish I could take more lessons, but I relocated. I still take one class a week via Skype with Victoria.

Thank you Victoria!

Специалистом мы очень довольны. Виктория интересно преподносит материал, наша дочка с удовольствием занимается. Репетитор пунктуальная и ответственная, к дочери относится доброжелательно. Дочь изучает английский язык для увеличения своих языковых навыков и каждый раз рассказывает эмоционально о занятиях, ей очень нравится заниматься с репетитором. Педагог проявила себя с лучшей стороны, у меня к ней нет нареканий, она подходит нам и личностными, и профессиональными качествами.

Translation via Google: We are very satisfied with the specialist. Victoria is interesting in presenting the material, our daughter is pleased to do. The tutor is punctual and responsible, she treats her daughter kindly. The daughter learns English to increase her language skills and every time she tells emotionally about classes, she likes to do with the tutor. The teacher showed herself on the best side, I have no complaints against her, she is suitable for us both personal and professional qualities.

About Susanna
Guten Tag!

I was born and raised in Munich, Germany. I am fluent in German and English. I moved to the United States over 30 years ago with my family. I worked as a chief flight attendant for Lufthansa Airlines for many years. When I became a mother I earned my certification as a Montessori teacher in 2006 and have been teaching my students at a local Montessori school the German language with fun songs (I play the piano) and simple games and interesting books. It is important to me to make the whole learning process a positive and fun experience for my students. I worked with pre-schoolers as well as elementary students. I also tutor high school/college students and adults of any age in German. One of my hobbies and passions is acting on stage, mainly in comedies at local community theaters.
Whatever your needs may be in r
egard to the German language, (writing, reading, spelling, correct pronunciation, etc. school, work or travel) I would love to be of assistance and make the learning an enjoyable adventure and great success! Living in the United States for so many years and also traveling to Germany every year has made me acutely aware of the cultural differences and I enjoy sharing these interesting findings with my students, it helps immensely to embrace, immerse and "feel" a foreign language.
I can meet my students in person or if more convenient be available for online lessons.

Let's start with this exciting and fun adventure to dive into another culture, another world and language!
