Melissa is a miracle worker! My mother-in-law moved to the United States 40 years ago unable to speak english and while she has done a good job at learning on her own, she had significant gaps in her ability to effectively communicate. For her 68th birthday, I bought her lessons with Melissa. My mother-in-law told me I was wasting my money because she couldn't learn anything new. Well, needless to say, she can learn and with Melissa's excellent tutelage has dramatically increased her ability to speak and comprehend english. This has enabled a new level of confidence and freedom that she did not previously have and is a game changer for her. I attribute her improvement directly to Melissa's ability to understand her student's needs and personalities and craft and deliver a quality, tailored curriculum. After our first round of classes, my mother-in-law is excited to continue the lessons and has a renewed curiosity and interest in learning. Great job and thank you Melissa!!!

Melissa has a lovely calming personality. She made us feel completely at ease while learning a foreign language. She was prepared and tailored the lesson for our specific goals and level.

She displayed an expert knowledge of the language, but was still able to teach beginners. Plus we could tell she really loved Portuguese.

The online format was great. Cant wait for the next lesson.

Melissa is the best! Extremely knowledgeable and patient with her students. I highly recommend her.

Speaking in public can be scary. The larger the group the more intense the pressure. I work with my students to focus on word groupings, eye contact, and confidence. This builds courage, making the voice shake less and main points stand out more.

I explain things, You understand them.

My name is Racim,

Racim grew up in a sleepy and very calm Algerian town where there was little to do but stay at home and read books or watch movies. After spending too much time at home doing math homeworks, he turned his love for problem solving into a full time hobby, but it wasn’t long before he realized that solving problems just for fun wasn't quite enough; he wanted to help other people struggling with math problems.

He's been through all his educational stages only in schools based in his hometown and presently he's a Master's student in Advanced Probability at the university of Abou Bekr Belkaid.

About Hector

Hi! My name is Hector and I earned a degree in Neuroscience, and while learning the facts about the brain is exciting, it's even more amazing to witness the excitement from the faces I've taught when they understood the concept they were struggling with. It's so much more rewarding to see the glow

Hector is very helpful! In chemistry, he knew his information well and was eager in explaining things followed by checking to make sure we understood the lesson. He takes responsibility in teaching and has a very kind personality. I like to study with him.
Alex
His passion for the betterment of people and his ability to make complex topics so simplistic truly make him a devoted and effective tutor.
Kelsey
I've known Hector for a few years now, and I haven't met anyone as passionate when it comes to his work.
Hector puts forth 110% towards his work and students to ensure quality material. He is patient, and is more than happy to clarify any questions.
Not only does his passion lies within teaching, but he is continulusly striving to learn new things. He loves to analyze complex sciences and the world around him, and as an outcome he formulates fascinating theories. Not only is a great teacher, but a friend who truly inspires those around him.

"Colin helped me through the last semester of IB Calculus. He would email me two days before each lesson so he was prepared with a relative lesson plan for our hour long weekly session of review. He even created a video explaining a topic I was stuck on and sent it to me after our weekly session. I wouldn’t have gotten an A in the last semester without him. Thanks Colin."

"Mr. Colin is an excellent tutor! He is the first tutor of many from whose teaching my AP Chemistry grades improved drastically. He is very easy going and also easy to talk to. If you don't understand something, he will try to explain it in as many ways possible; just make sure to stop and let him know that you didn't understand the concept. I am very satisfied with his teaching style and therefore plan to have more lessons with Mr. Colin in college chemistry classes. I would 100% recommend him to anyone!"
