About Julissa
I am a freelance tutor and translator. I have been tutoring for more than 8 years. I am very friendly, patient and professional. I tutor college students and children. I got my Associate in Arts and Sciences - Psychology from Union County College in NJ. On my sessions I apply constructivist teaching techniques which have proven excellent results. I am an avid observer of details which helps me determine the student's strengths. My classes are fun as playing a game! I am also a Therapeutic Mentor in Catholic Charities. In order to be accepted I had to get a full background check because I deal with very special and unique children.

Mojy is BEST INSTRUCTOR EVER, very knowledgeable and passionate about the Persian Languages and teaching. She is very positive and wouldn't let you go to the next step before she makes sure you have learned what you need with fun and enthusiasm. She is very educated and learned about both Persian language and culture. She has a great understanding of the students' needs. Well, She is very pushy, but that is what we need to pass DLPT . I would not have GOTTEN 3/3+ if I would not have had Mojy for my teacher. Go Mojy! ;)

Mojy is by far the most qualified and talented language instructor I have ever had. After a week of class it was clear that she was an instructor that was on a completely different level than my instructors in the past. While under her instruction i vastly improved in every facet of my language, both in skill and in confidence. Her class room provides a relaxed but highly focused environment, and she genuinely cares about her student's success. If you give her your attention and effort then you will not be disappointment with the results.

After seven years' experience in Farsi I hit a proficiency plateau, but Mojy's customized and attentive instruction got my scores up to an ILR Level 3 in reading and 2+ in listening- my best scores ever! I can't recommend her highly enough. She knows what material works and how to explain complex grammatical concepts effectively. Best teacher ever!

About Cindy
Cindy is a native Spanish speaker and fluent English speaker. Additionally, she studied French for over 8 years. She is a driven Latina who loves her background and is excited to help others learn and embrace new cultures.

She began tutoring 17 years ago (Spanish, French, Math and Science) while in High School and continued to do so intermittently throughout college while she was earning her degrees (B.S. in Mechanical Engineering with minor in Theater Arts form the New Jersey Institute of Technology and a M.S. in Industrial Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh) and after as a working professional.
Aside from tutoring Spanish, she has experience tutoring the following subjects:
Algebra - Geometry - Pre Calculus - Physics - Dynamics - Mechanics

She recently moved from Pittsburgh PA to Los Angeles in order to continue to
grow her acting career.
She splits her time between her family and working as an actress, working on her own productions (radio show and film) and independent films.

She loves working out, movies, cultural events and embracing diversity.

She also enjoys working with kids because it allows her to show them that there is so much more to an Engineer.

She is a former president of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers - Western Pennsylvania Chapter. Through this organization they were able to create opportunities for kids K-12 and college to experiment and learn about the different opportunities in the STEM field during Engineering-Week at the Carnegie Science Center.

Cindy's extensive knowledge of Spanish was clear from the start. English is her second language but my children couldn't tell. She has an excellent way of breaking down Spanish for children and adults (I listened in and learned a couple of phrases).

About Gabriela
I'm an artist, educator, and scholar who uses a methodological, student-centered approach to help you achieve your goals. I teach music lessons and provide reading and writing tutoring to beginning and intermediate students. Here's some more specific info on each one of my services:
___________________________________________________________________________
Music Lessons:
After completing my undergraduate education at Santa Clara University, where I majored in flute and vocal performance, I freelanced as a music professional in the San Francisco Bay Area for three years. I then relocated to the University of Notre Dame, where I received a Master of Sacred Music degree in voice and directed a children's choir in the Notre Dame Children's Choir. I also taught percussion and competed as a marching percussionist for six years, winning the
award of "Best Percussionist" with the Santa Clara Vanguard Cadets and leading my groups to successful competitions during the fall marching season and the winter indoor percussion season. I'm currently a freelancing vocal professional in Baltimore.

If you're looking for voice instruction, flute instruction, or you'd simply like to learn and hone music skills (like sight reading, rhythms, ear-training) from a high-level musician with a broad range of experience, please contact me!
____________________________________________________________________________
Reading and Writing Tutoring:
I have successfully tutored undergraduate and graduate students in reading and writing for over eight years. At Santa Clara University, where I received a B.A. in English, I was vice-president of the English Honor Society and tutored undergraduate students for first-year composition courses. At San Francisco State University I earned my M.A. degree in English Composition, a degree which focuses on the teaching of college-level reading and writing. There I served as a tutor for the English Tutoring Center and the Student Success Program.

If you're a beginning student looking for reading and writing tutoring where I teach you writing skills (like brainstorming, drafting, and editing) or an intermediate student who simply needs an extra pair of eyes to bring your writing to the next level, please contact me!

I look forward to hearing how I can help you reach your goals.

About Isabela
I'm an enthusiastic learner even after 19 years of formal education (two Masters, one Bachelor) earned on two continents continued by US military education in various forms, and formally tested student who needed to document skills that were not formally captured on paper (like the foreign languages I know).

I love interacting with people and pass on my knowledge from five visited continents, instill love for learning and continuous curiosity for any subject out there. Nothing is impossible when you set your mind to it. Failing once doesn't mean that you'll never win (proof in my athletic years and life ever since); determination, hard work, self-motivation and a good supporting system can bring to reality even the most insignificant dreams that we believe may not come true, and especially those in which we passionately trust.

I be
lieve in breaking down a goal into objectives, assigning tasks to each one of them, and then sticking to achieve them.

I'm a Certified Instructor with the Department of Homeland Security. My hobbies include practicing foreign languages by speaking them, learning about cultures and slangs, etymology, watching foreign movies, traveling internationally, taking photos, reading (a lot), carefully planning with room for error and impulsive decisions (to take the boredom out of things), meeting with life long friends, drawing, painting, and spending time outdoors for inspiration.

I'm elated at the opportunity of brainstorming with you and giving you tools to be an independent learner.
