Education is one of the most valuable things you can acquire. Knowledge stays with you wherever you go and you can use it in the less unexpected situation.

I was born and raise on Peru, South America. Spanish is my native language.
I also hold a Bachelor's on Biological Science from Roosevelt University with a minor in Chemistry. I have take classes like Molecular Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, Biochemistry, Neuroscience. Also General and Organic Chemistry. General Physics and Math up to Calculus. I offer tutoring on Biology, General Chemistry and Math.

Being bilingual have been a great advantage for me, especially at work. That's why I offer Spanish lessons and tutoring, from beginning to advance levels.

It's amazing how our brain can absorb information in different ways. We can be learning something unintentionally. So whichever your circumstances are we should be open to learn or improve our skills every day. Remember, the process of learning never ends.

Grew up in Taiwan and America, and native speaker of both English and Mandarin Chinese. I have close to 10 years of tutoring experience to students ranging from children to adults.

I recommend just starting with a single lesson to see if we are good fits for each other, and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals!

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

I feel that learning in general and learning a foreign language in particular is about repetition and I ask my students to repeat everything I teach over and over again until they know it by heart. I keep my lessons simple to avoid overwhelming the students and to allow time for them to repeat what they learned earlier. I teach the words that form part of the so called core vocabulary; words that are chosen according to frequency and range (in the sense that they “occur across a wide variety of texts”) It is often said that the first 2000 most frequent words cover approximately 90% of the vocabulary used by native-speakers in daily conversations. This means that for a student they represent the basic resource to be able to communicate.

About Stefania

I am hard of hearing, I am the only one that’s hard of hearing in the family, my first language is American Sign Language. American Sign Language is the most beautiful visual language in the world, today in this society a lot of people are eager to learn sign language. I love sharing my knowledge and my deaf culture with other people. I am a very funny person including when I teach, it will entertain you and you will never be bored to learn with me. I can teach you from beginners to advanced. We could do zooms or Skype. My students always learn so quickly with me because I always find their rough areas in where they need help learning.

I look forward to meeting you and see you become successful!

I bring a passion to teaching Spanish that stems from being a teacher for over 30 years! I want to help students learn in a fun way by conversations that spark joy. I can help you with your homework, or we can talk about your favorite sports, art or movie. I believe that the best way to learn is when you can connect with the material and incorporate it into your everyday life!

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

She waited for me while I took note. She repeated words and concepts that I didn't understand. We had created a learning plan, started to work on it. I feel hopeful I will finally be able to learn Italian. ;-)"
