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.

Mariana was a great tutor. I am an adult with little experience speaking French. I enjoyed our conversations and she made learning the language very enjoyable. I hope to continue.

Mariana has been an incredible instructor. I came to her as an adult with no previous understanding of French. Her passion for teaching and knowledge of not only the language, but the culture as well, are unparalleled. She immediately made me feel confident by including conversation in our first lesson. I could not have asked for a better introduction to French. I highly recommend Mariana as your first choice for French!

If you want to learn Korean, choose Angie as your tutor. She makes the lessons very fun to attend and I always look forward to the next lesson. She makes quizzes, has you watch videos and explains what is going on, introduces food, etc. She makes learning Korean very easy and fun. These types of tutors are very rare to find, for me at least. Trust me, pick Angie as your tutor. You won't regret it.

Excellent first lesson. Valentina was very patient but persistent in staying in Russian as much as feasible. I knew a little bit from decades ago and she helped me find the way forward again without embarrassment. I look forward to the next lessons.

Consuelo is such a great teacher! I was so nervous to start taking Spanish lessons because I am extremely shy and haven't been doing so well in my Spanish class. She was very attentive to my needs and quickly tailored her lessons to help me improve my biggest weaknesses. With her help I raised my overall class grade from a C to an A within a month and a half. She is a Spanish language miracle worker! GRACIAS CONSUELO!!!

In the one year that I had Mr. Scharping, it was easy to see how much he really loved the language. Personally, I loved his style of continuous repetition in order to learn things. In class he would speak to us in Latin and we would respond in Latin, which really helped me master the language. If you ever needed help he was also very open to help you out. I would gladly recommend Mr. Scharping to any of my friends, if they wanted to learn Latin, because of his diligence and extensive knowledge of the language.

About Xiomara
I have taught in the Maryland Public School System for 7 years now in a variety of populations. I have found that as a teacher I thrive on helping my students reach their maximum potential.

I resolutely believe that all students are capable of success with the proper support and guidance. I also believe that being successful in life can be attributed to open-mindedness and taking advantage of opportunities that increase your global awareness. As a Spanish teacher, I offer students the opportunity to learn a language that is increasingly as useful as English in the United States and indispensable in most other countries in the Americas. I also provide them with meaningful social and cultural experiences that are relevant and applicable to their daily lives.
