About Kesley

I focus mainly in tutoring and managing group study sessions for English learners, whether they are international students or native speakers. I have spent the past five years teaching English, ESL and Creative Writing in various countries. I have a certificate in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and TKT (Teacher Knowledge Test: Young Learners), and am currently working towards acquiring a CBEST (California Basic Educational Skills Test) certification as well.

I like to teach in a fun and comfortable environment. My teaching philosophy is that learning should be exciting, not boring. It is much easier for students to learn a subject if they enjoy studying it. I am a very patient and understanding individual, so no matter the student's level, I always find a way to work the subject matter around their needs.

I look forwa

rd to our future classes together!

My daughter first lesson was great, Lesley was very attentive and supportive. I believe that this will be a great experience!

Kesley is absolutely amazing! She is so patient and creative. My daughter struggled so much with reading. Now she is a confident reader and is near the top of her class in both reading and math. Additionally, my daughter struggled with some behavior problems. Kesley was firm but kind and helped her behave not only during tutoring session, but also in school.

We are also foster parents with kids of all ages coming and going all the time. Kesley has worked with almost all of them and helped them get caught up in school. If there was something higher than 5 stars, I would give it to Kesley. You could not find a better tutor.

Quick note on my passion for learning as a way of life ~

As a passionate lifelong learner, researcher, educator, tutor and coach, I embrace an unbounded curiosity of wonder and never ending exploration of an interdisciplinary approach to the scientific methods of learning, and acquiring knowledge that extend far beyond my university studies, into living my life highly engaged in as much experiential (first person) learning as possible. I love asking fresh, invigorating, boldly curious, audaciously barrier-busting, status-qua daring questions, as I feel passionately that, as Dr. Albert Einstein shared, "The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity."
Albert Einstein
US (German-born) physicist (1879 - 1955)

About Brandon

Please contact me before making a payment! Ever since I started my studies in the United States, 5 years ago, I have been captivated by the educational system. Initially, I tutored high school students as a tool to better practice my communication skills with the English language. I continued this tutoring path by aiding other college students on a 1-to-1 basis and more recently as part of an online experience. Math is my biggest passion, ever since I discovered its full depth. While many ask themselves "how will this equation be useful in my life?" I always ask myself "how can I make this equation meaningful in my life."

I have been taking weekly voice acting lessons from Bill for almost two months now. I feel he does a great job of helping me find and focus my strengths while equally addressing and overcoming my weaknesses. Every lesson is well-paced and packed from start to finish with valuable training and advice, and on top of that Bill is just fun to train with, I am looking forward to the lessons yet to come. Highly recommend.

My teenager son loves his singing lessons with Kara. He has been going for a couple months and I have noticed a rapid improvement in his singing. I highly recommend Kara she is a great teacher and very friendly. My son is always looking forward to his next lesson, it is the highlight of his week. Thank you so much Kara for the great work you do!

I am a college level jazz musician.
My primary instruments are jazz guitar and upright bass.
Growing up I have always wanted to sing but never could find a qualified teacher.

Luckily, after extensive research online for vocal teachers I discovered Kara.
I have been taking lessons with her for a while now and she's wonderful.
I always have many questions for her in my lessons and she always has a knowledgable response.

I feel like I'm progressing and finally learning how to sing properly with someone who knows their stuff.

I would highly recommend studying with her.

Private Writing Teacher

I've been writing since I was old enough to do so and I would love to share my passion of writing with you. From screenwriting to fiction to essays to writing sketches, I've tackled it all. And I'd love to help you develop your story as you work hard to become the writer you've always wanted to be!

About Kimberly

I am a trained actress in my late 20's. I have experience coaching many professional working actors. I have worked on audition sides for TV (Law & Order, Narcos, Disney, SMILF, etc), independent films, big budget studio films, web series, off broadway plays, off off broadway plays, monologues, and anything in between with my students!

I am currently the creator, writer, lead actress & executive producer of my own comedic web series (to air mid-2018).

I have been trained by exceptional teachers in the following: Linklater (voice), Williamson (movement), film/tv & theater, script analysis, theater & film history, cold reading, monologue, stand-up comedy, etc. I have also been mentored by the legendary standup comedian Rick Crom.

I can also work with the actor, writer or comedian on the business aspect of their career: how can I

get the best headshot?, what things should I be doing everyday to reach my acting goals (some may not even be acting/writing/comedy!)?, how do I get in front of this specific casting director/producer/etc?, what events/workshops should I be attending? We can go over all that plus how to deal with nerves, get through personal blocks, fear-related patterns, and other things that may be holding you back from being the best artist you can be!

I believe training is so important so congrats on taking the first step towards a successful, exciting career! I can't wait to share my passions with you!

I have a self tape set-up with a backdrop, professional lighting & tripod. I am happy to be your reader & coach as we film your audition, scene or stand up set. We can use this as a tool to improve or film a self tape audition. We can also chose your best take together.

It was a great first lesson. My 13 year old daughter and I were a little anxious that it would feel weird and awkward, but Kimberly is so down to earth and positive. She also had great suggestions to getting started. We're excited to go back next week!

Private Writing Teacher

I have a vast amount of experience in writing, given my high school, college, and graduate career. My experience ranges from essays (including the standard 5-paragraph one), to research papers with proper citations, to technical reports, to a dissertation (for my PhD).

About Ulyana

My name is Ulyana and I'm passionate about teaching and tutoring! I graduated with a B.S. from Rice University (Houston, TX), specializing in earth sciences (geology and chemistry). I did my Masters in planetary geology at Brown University (Providence, RI), and for my PhD, I trekked over 1500 miles in Nepal, studying glacial lake flooding hazards to Sherpa villages, as well as impacts of pollution on pristine high mountains, including Mt. Everest.

For seven years now, I have either tutored or taught, in classrooms and in the field, all age groups, sharing the joy of science, math - and learning in general! When I was in my teens, I participated in many science fairs and symposia at the national and international level. Then I went to college and grad school in science. Pretty much, science has been my life! For any of your science need

s, with a special focus on astronomy and geology (earth sciences), I'm here to help. I can assist with physics, biology, chemistry and math (algebra, pre-calc, calculus). Given my experience in public speaking, the Microsoft Office suite (Excel, Powerpoint, Word) and writing, I can assist with that as well!

If you're interested in creative lessons - with a true focus on your learning experience, I'm your tutor! Often times when working out in the field in extreme locations (e.g., Antarctica and Mt. Everest), I have to MacGyver solutions on the fly. I want to teach you how to think. This skill will serve you well, long into the future.

"Mr Henry helped in improving my son's writing skills. He is a wonderful teacher. My son was struggling with writing. He used to be shy of writing and now
he seems to be more confident in writing. Mr. Henry not only taught him different types of writing but also improved his vocabulary skills. I highly recommend him for learning/improving writing skills."

recommend him for any student who wishes to either grasp fundamental skills or for the one who simply wishes to polish their own.

Additionally Larry has been able to introduce me to Shakespeare, a life long interest of mine... one which has always frustrated me do to my lack of understanding, in a non threatening, non stressful way.

Thank you Larry."
