About Annie
I graduated from Boston College with a B.A. in Music and Communication in 2013. Then I earned M.S. in educational studies: ESOL at Johns Hopkins while working full time as a public school teacher in Baltimore. At Highlandtown Elementary Middle School, I was the Strings Program Director with Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's OrchKids. I recently graduated from Harvard University with a degree in Education Policy and Management.

At Boston College, I served as the concertmaster for the symphonic orchestra, tutored music theory and violin, and coached chamber ensemble groups. I also co-founded a music outreach organization where BC students provided music education for a local elementary school without a viable music curriculum.
I absolutely love working with children in every aspect, especially music. I've been teaching privately for about
7 years now and my students have become accomplished violinists! I focus on making violin fun and awarding to allow children to appreciate music and to challenge themselves to a higher rigor. I individualize and differentiate all of my lessons to ensure effectiveness.

I've been a tutor of the English language for over 25 years, and have helped many with their speaking, writing, grammar, and listening skills. My goals is to help you with your English writing and speaking assignments, and to enhance your command of the English language overall.

About Naomi
I was originally born in Cincinnati, Ohio in a large family (youngest of nine kids), and we all attended Catholic schools... this is where I started learning Spanish. I have studied it (and English Literature) for many years, then eventually won a scholarship to study/travel in Mexico for six months. I returned from Mexico fluent, graduated from college with honors in language and Humanities, then decided to go live in Washington, DC to use that language. I got into corporate training, working 10 years at Fannie Mae as I traveled to 38 of the 50 states to help them train banks on their financial systems. I later began working in healthcare, and got certified as an interpreter AND as an Instructional Designer. I have designed educational programs ever since at hospitals, schools, educational centers, retail organizations, and with hig
her education (now at GWU). My hobbies include speaking Spanish, swimming, listening to jazz, playing with my daughter and my beagle.

If you are looking for a Spanish teacher look no further! Naomi is a very skilled and phenomenal teacher. I have taken her class for the last 10 months and I truly can see the progress I have made with her teaching style. She not only has set lessons from the book, but she will bring real-world examples such as food, newspapers, and music! I recently traveled to the Dominican Republic and I was amazed at how easily I was able to hold a conversation. The people there let me know that my Spanish was very good. It was definitely a compliment for me. I believe that a student is only as good as their teacher. Naomi is the right teacher!

New York, NY

I'm a creative and experienced teacher who can help improve your English writing, speaking, and reading skills. I can teach you the English you need for travel, work, school, or fun. Whether you are a native speaker or a second language learner, I can help you solve the mysteries of correct grammar and usage.

About Marion
Hi, I'm Marion. I bring a lifetime of experience helping people of all ages improve their writing, and English skills. My experience with second language learners is extensive. Whatever your skill set, age, abilities, or background, I can help make you a better writer.

I've worked with middle, high school and college students on developing the reading, writing and research skills needed for success in many academic areas. I've worked with second language learners on speaking, reading, and writing.

Preparing for essay tests is one of my areas of expertise, but my teaching philosophy is less about preparing for a particular test than it is about developing strategies that work for a broad number of tests and in real life situations.

I love working with adults and younger people on developing storytelling techniques, and public spe
aking skills for presentations and interviews, as well as for personal events. These are great confidence builders with real world results!

Whatever type of writing you need to work on, it would be my honor and privilege to work with you.

Jordin is an excellent French teacher! She is very patient, and while she is quick to remind you about translated words or verb conjugations, she also encourages you to challenge yourself. Jordin and I have conversations in elementary French, and her approachable personality makes it easier to reach out and ask questions throughout the conversation.

In short, when you hire me as a tutor, you are not only hiring someone with professional experience teaching college-level English courses at three area universities, you are also hiring someone who works as a semi-professional writer (poetry, fiction), who has written and published six books. I have a master's degree in English, and I was also recently awarded an Akron Soul Train Fellowship, during which I wrote a poetry chapbook. Reading and writing are my passions, and I would love the opportunity to share my passions with you.

About Gabriel
Gabe Gott lives in Akron, Ohio, with his wife, Sarah, the unwitting caretakers of a home for retired house pets. He was the March 2018 Akron Soul Train Fellow, during which he wrote the upcoming poetry chapbook, Idiot Parade (out May 12, 2018, on Gott Press). Gabe has degrees in English from Kent State University and The University of Akron and has taught writing as a Tutor, Teaching Assistant, and Adjunct Professor at the University of Akron, Stark State College, and Notre Dame College. During the day, he works as a team lead/trainer for a market intelligence company based out of Chicago, but he is also a semi-professional writer of fiction and poetry. He has published a short story collection, Tales from the Fringes (2013), a novel, Escapes (2014), two flash fiction chapbooks, The Ever-Present Moment (2016) and Dispatches from the Info
rmation Age (2017), and a poetry collection, Live Organ Transplants (2017). His writing has appeared The Cult Magazine, Misplaced Identity, Literally Literary, The Devil Strip, Insomnia & Obsession, Red Fez, Flash Fiction Magazine and 50-to-1.
