Students can expect a comprehensive review of grammar, word choice, and essay structure for any style of writing. In addition to making edits, I can assist with topic brainstorming and composition.

I was apprehensive about guitar lessons in general, but Nathan has changed my mind as a tutor. I am well pleased with how keen he is to tailoring lessons to one's goals. He is clear and precise in his teaching, and is also fun. I highly recommend him to whoever is considering it. I have learned so much in a couple lessons and always leave looking forward excitedly to the next one. Good man.

Nathan is an incredible teacher. He really knows how to connect with students! His patience, flexibility, and ability to explain concepts really helped me learn. I feel like my guitar skills have grown so much since I started taking lessons with Nathan.

I’ve been speaking publicly on a regular basis for 5+ years. I enjoy helping others gain confidence in public speaking, and learning how to speak proficiently. Students of mine can expect to learn how to read and prepare for their audiences, how to properly capture the attention of a group, and how to leave a good impression. This of course includes everything from grammar to posture (among other things) and I would be glad to impart this knowledge to others.

About Joshua

I love being able to help others learn. I’ve worked as a preschool teacher for two and a half years, and as a martial arts instructor for the last year and a half. I am currently in college pursuing a degree in psychology and social work with plans of becoming a counselor specializing in adolescent

I have a MBA in International Business. Math is at its foundation. Without math and geometry things would be more complicated. Knowing geometry helps one become an architect, an engineer or a games designer, opportunities are endless.

About Isabela

Before reading about me, I'd like to share up front the honor that my newest student, R., has brought to me by choosing to learn Romanian. Nothing special so far except that he is 100 years old!!!! Yes, you read that correctly: a century old. He is the outmost inspiring person in my life by teachin

I am finishing my first set of lessons with Isabela. I can tell a big difference in how I am able to hear the language. Already, words pop into my head in French. I am pleased with how much I have learned already!
Susan
I have taken 7 lessons with Isabela. I can tell that my confidence is increasing and I am remembering more and more in French. I like how she includes written, verbal, and auditory (like YouTube) in our lessions.

I am completely very exciting with her because she explains everything to make it simple

Math is much more fun when it makes sense, isn’t it?!
My lessons are unique because you are unique. Everyone doesn’t learn the same way, so I will explain math the way it makes sense to you so that you can understand. I have experience in tutoring as I was a peer tutor in high school. Of those I tutored, many told me I explain math well, so here I am to share my skills! I am patient, understanding, and friendly, which I believe are important qualities for a tutor to have. I hope I have the chance to work with you! You are smart and very capable!!!
