Laura R.

Rescue, CA

About Laura

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, and a Master's Degree in Secondary Science Education-Biology. I am certified in the state of Florida. The first lesson will consist of diagnostics so that I can better tailor my teaching to your child. For my reading students I assist with phonics and comprehension. I use high interest text selections to ensure that the child will actually enjoy what they are reading, in addition to improving their skills. Students who require math instruction, I like to revisit prerequisites. I find that mistakes are made in the lower levels of math, which
makes learning math at the higher levels more difficult. If children need science instruction, I can help with re-teaching the material and clarifying any confusing or complicated concepts to ensure the material is clear and easily understood. My methods for language arts and history are similar to science.

Joan B.

Carmichael, CA

About Joan

I have 18 years experience teaching high school Spanish and have lived and worked in Spain. I am a UC Berkeley graduate with a minor in Italian. My passion is the study of foreign languages. I have also studied French and Arabic and am able to understand the difficulties of language learning from both the student and teacher's perspective. I am adept at explaining concepts in a clear and concise manner and targeting the student's specific difficulties. Students have found my tutoring helpful in improving their performance on tests, increasing their ability to comprehend and respond in Spanish
and/or developing conversational Spanish when traveling to a Spanish-speaking country. I can provide the student with useful classroom strategies and study skills to make language learning easy and fun at all levels.

Sara M.

West Sacramento, CA

About Sara

Hello, My name is Sara and my mother is Japanese from Kobe, Japan and my father is Caucasian American. I grew up speaking both Japanese and English and I now work as a bilingual, full-time actor in beautiful Northern California. I'm looking forward to working with you on reaching your goals for 2016! Whether you want to study acting or Japanese, I'd like to talk about what you wish to accomplish with our time together. Your goals are important to me and I wish to help support you on your journey towards achieving them.

I've been mentoring actors for the past four years and have have be
en teaching Japanese and English for 3 years. A friend suggested I start teaching online after I told him about my desire to offer affordable acting lessons to anyone who was passionate about it, but had no resources. So here I am and I'm also offering Japanese lessons since I know it can be hard to find a Japanese teacher/tutor as well.

I have a B.A. in Theatre Arts and a minor in Education from Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana and have a certificate of completion from the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco for completing their Classical Acting Intensive course. In addition to my western training I was an apprentice at Theatre of Yugen where I studied the dramatic art of Noh and Kyogen theatre for 3 years.

I've also taught Japanese 101 during college as part of my course work for Teaching Japanese as a Second Language as well as beginner Japanese to 5-7 graders at a local elementary.

And I also was an assistant English teacher for 2 years in Japan teaching Junior High School and working as a primary visiting teacher for over 40 elementary schools. Although my work was to teach English, because of my Japanese ability, I often worked as a substitute teacher and also translated documents for the local City Hall.

I can't wait to meet you and to work with you on pursuing your 2015 aspirations!

Clarissa B.

Auburn, CA

About Clarissa

I focus on the student. My approach and materials will vary depending on the progress, past experience and interests of the student. I want her or him to want to learn.My hobbies include backpacking, hiking, travel, reading, and language learning.

I am working on my Masters in Secondary English and currently hold an Associates in ECE, this combined with my extensive experience with the AP system and the time that I lived in and attended université in France make me qualified to tutor in these subjects and the satellite subject areas such as diction, study skills, reading and writing. I have
experience learning four foreign languages in addition to English. It is my love of the learning process, patience and passion for these subjects, however, that are most efficacious in the tutoring process. Best of luck with your studies!

Clarissa was really thoughtful and attentive to my needs. She checked in with me at the end of every lesson to figure out what worked for me and make new goals for the next lesson.
She was really understanding about my accent (which wasn't great). I didn't realize accent could be fixed, but she showed me how to make the right sounds and was really patient.

I could really see how much better I was getting with her help and the way she sets up lessons, I could use the class materials and practice in between lessons.

I originally picked her because she was so affordable, but I am so glad I did now!

As you learn Spanish, you'll come across rules that are important for writing. In this article by tutor Jason N. you'll learn all about Spanish accent marks and when to use them...   When I started learning Spanish back in 2008, I ignored accent marks when they appeared.
