I read best reviews. Can phone number of the Teacher be placed here so that I could enroll.

Ms. Janai was the best tutor I have ever had. No matter the day, or time she was always there to help me out. Either it was math, science, writing, etc. she'd help me with every subject no matter how long it took for me to get it right, every subject was like her first nature. She was amazing teaching in person and just as good online. I've never met another tutor like Janai, she understands what you're going wrong and what your difficulties are, but she always manages to turn those difficulties around and make you better at understanding what you need to do better in order to succeed. If you're looking for an outstanding tutor Janai is the way to go!

Janai is great with older adults. She's so patient and makes me feel relaxed even when I'm saying the wrong words. She has passion! and that's exciting to see.

I would really love the opportunity to help you improve your English abilities. I believe in using examples, scenarios, conversation and visual aids to keep the class interesting. I listen to students needs in order to let you guide the lesson topics to where your learning needs and goals will be achieved. I am just a subject matter expert and a facilitator of your learning. I believe strongly in the value of education, self-learning and continuous learning. You will be a better learner if you approach each topic from your interests and from a discovery approach. You may find that learning English while also learning about other topics (business, careers, hobbies, interests, travel, culture, etc.) makes it more valuable.

I am been teaching math for 7 years now in variety of levels. I taught Middle, High School and undergraduate students. Being a math professional is challenging however, I take my class that all of my students enjoy what they are doing while learning the content. I love to challenge my students way of thinking and reasoning. By doing this, I see to it that I gave them proper guide and encouragements. Also, it brings out their full potential in math.
I love Algebra and Geometry because they are merely the application of all basic mathematics we've learned from our elementary and high school days. It is also the basic foundation of all higher mathematics.

About Lucas

I am a Math teacher for 7 years now. I love teaching Algebra and Geometry but can teach other math subjects. I am easy to approach kind a teacher. So, if you have questions in your assignments, let us do it together and let us have some fun doing mathematics!

Grace is very patient and knowledgeable. I am learning how to read, write, speak and understand the language and with her teaching skills I’m surprised at how fast I’m learning it. Would definitely recommend her.
Trish
I am taking Mandarin lessons from Grace because I am adopting a child from China and want to have some basic communication skills. I have never been good at learning languages, and I was hesitant because I know Mandarin is one of the most difficult languages to learn. After just 3 lessons, I am learning and I love it! I have had so much fun with Grace! She is a fabulous teacher. She is patient, kind and personable. She presents the material so that it is understandable. I am actually learning and remembering what I learned. I originally planned to take 10 one-hour lessons so I have a good basic knowledge, but I am absolutely going to continue taking lessons with her when the 10th is done. The time I spend with Grace just flies by, and I look forward to our lessons. I am so thrilled that I found Grace, and relieved that she is able to present the material to me in a such fun and comprehensible way.

I chose to take lessons with Grace because she teaches people of all ages. I am 51 years old. When my child arrives home from China this year, he will be approximately 2 years old. I look forward to taking lessons in the future with my child and having Grace teach both of us. Learning about China and the language will help my child and me connect to each other and to his culture and homeland. Thank you, Grace, for helping me on my adoption journey and beyond!

"Andrea works at the Writing Center at Grace Church School, a leading independent high school in lower Manhattan. I've taught there for the last couple years and make a point to send my students to the Writing Center (and her specifically, whenever possible) if they are struggling with any areas of their writing.

I've observed her in the Writing Center on a number of occasions, and she always does a great job navigating the difficult balance between helping students directly, and creating a path for them to work through questions on their own. She is direct, but supportive. She also is very perceptive of students' anxiety levels - many are kids who tend to stress about college and grades often - and how to change her tone, or comment with a personal anecdote, when what the student needs most is a moment to laugh or calm down.

Andrea's best skill in my opinion is teaching her tutees to adjust their priorities based on a deadline. She consults students whose papers are due in a couple of hours, and others who have a whole week left, and without being preachy gets across realistic expectations of what can be done within the timeframe."

"I'm in a fast paced trig course at my uni, and we've covered things I never did in high school. I did 5 lessons over skype with Julia, and know I've found a keeper. She sends stuff to practice on in advance and has me work with her like I would with my professor. She comes up with practice based on my weakest areas and never shortens time. I don't even have to ask for review material because she assigns hw to work on, and basically, I'm a master at graphing now."

"Meagan is very flexible and is a great teacher. She doesn't make the student feel self-conscious about answering wrong, She gently asks the student to explain how they came up with the answer and allows them to correct themselves. If the student doesn't realize their error during the explanation, she explains to the student wherein the equation they made an error. She also repeats the problem areas with the student until they have a full understanding of the process.

I sought Meagan out after my daughter came home with a failing grade in Algebra I. I am very happy with my selection, she is the perfect fit for my daughter. She is very flexible and I appreciate that she doesn't make my daughter feel like her lack of understanding of the subject matter makes her inadequate. I am going to continue hiring Meagan for the duration of the school year, my daughter really likes her and is learning far more than she is from her regular classroom environment."

"Marta is an exceptional teacher! I have seen her engage students in the classroom, lead wonderful field trips, design hands-on laboratory activities, and provide one-on-one lessons for non-traditional students. She cares deeply about her students and subject material, and is personally invested in pupil success. In the classroom, Marta cultivates an atmosphere where students are comfortable asking questions and expressing themselves. She provides clear explanations to questions and provides appropriate goals for student learning."
