About Monica
I have a Master's Degree in Education and 5 years of teaching experience. I have been a private tutor now for the past 8 years for children ages 4 years old and up. I tutor elementary, middle, high school and adults. I can also tutor PDF Bookmakring or PDF Bookmark documents for you,
I am familiar with common core and school standards. I would be more than happy to speak with you or your child's teacher regarding their needs.

*** Lesson Details ***
While I have extremely high expectations for all my students, I adjust my approach for each student in order to best serve him or her; for many of my students, for example, I design specific programs centered around goals, strengths, and areas for improvement. I am very familiar with different learning styles. I am very flexible in scheduling and meeting my student’s needs. So far for t
he last several years, I have been very successful in one-on-one tutoring and have managed to pull many students from grades of D's & F's to A's and B's.

About Erol
***AREAS NORTH OF CENTRAL SANTA CLARITA ARE DIFFICULT TO SERVICE PHYSICALLY/ ADDRESSES WITHIN REMOTE AREAS (no public transit or bicycle access) DIFFICULT TO SERVICE PHYSICALLY***

***lesson cancelations and schedule changes need to be submitted through your Takelessons.com student website. It is difficult for teacher to handle multiple informal requests***

My style and attitude toward teaching is a balance between subject delivery and reflective, supportive interaction. I seek to enable current research on education for busy, yet goal-driven student interests. This is done through customized online lessons coordinating the experience with optimal resources and tools. Examples are helping ESL students to monitor their own phonic issues with dedicated software/feedback, guiding German students through conversational dialogues, and ta
iloring Excel and related productivity lessons for particular prerequisites.

Due to my limited funds, I do not have direct experience with the Adobe suite, but I have extensive knowledge of related, free distributions that are transferable. I also have formal education in the field of English, innovative leadership, and Education. My current level is ABD or PhD candidate for the terminal degree in Education. I am member of the Association for Language Learning, located in Leicester, UK.
My most popular subjects are as follows:

North American English Pronunciation Practice for ESL (NAEPP-ESL) or Accent-Reduction:
*****Each Online Lesson with Free Video & MP3 recordings, and about 50 GB onedrive folder for lesson files*****

Carefully following Burkkowsky's (1969) multi-media method, I have taught this subject for over five years for public and private causes, such as library, individuals, and language schools. My emphasis for pronunciation is a scientific, comprehensive overview and treatment of the various sounds, rhythms, inflections, and patterns the spoken language integrates. I encourage practicing and mastering both the sounds themselves, as well as how the sounds are connected and contextualized. I use contemporary sound recording and .wav editing software (acoustic waveform analysis) to enable dynamic feedback and self-monitoring .

German Language and Culture:
*****Each Online Lesson with Free Video & MP3 Recordings and about 50 GB onedrive folder for lesson files*****

I have grown up bilingual English and German, attending an international school from a very young age. I attended, also, a German public secondary school, where I earned a diploma, and I completed college-level German credits. I taught German in the language lab of a community college, for special needs students, and for private agencies, such as Tutor Doctor. My emphasis is on a comparative introduction of the language to draw out a common ground and familiarize possibly daunting differences. I also enjoy asserting that German is often underestimated as a rewarding second language to study.

Microsoft Excel:
***It is recommended students own or have regular access to a personal computer after 2002 in order to get the best benefit***

This spreadsheet and data management software program is of crucial, pivotal importance in any business and financial environment. The program enables efficient and prompt development of arithmetic and statistical calculations of vast data sets. It also helps to visualize and juxtapose related or even discrepant variables. My approach to teaching the program is cumulative and holistic, starting with an introduction to personal inventory management to the processing of large data sets using pivot tables, charts, and dashboards. My emphasis is on making the program as intelligible and transparent as possible to avoid frustration and intimidation. I use a lot of examples and visuals that are readily available.

Typing:
***It is recommended students own or have regular access to a personal computer after 2002 in order to get the best benefit***

I teach the touch-typing method that is the convention for most journalistic and input-intensive organizational settings. I teach the home row, proper finger and hand positions, proficiency with left and right hands, as well as posture and concentration methods. I enrich the teaching with resources from the web, such as speed-building and error reduction.

I'm a total novice and Blake is very patient and doesn't mind explaining things more than once. After one lesson, I feel like I can start putting what I learned to use already.

About Liz
I enjoy helping people learn how to work with computers (Mac or PC). I have been teaching for 15+ years, and work comfortably with beginners, seniors and business clients.

I am often told I am a very patient teacher. I adapt my teaching style to each student and I can provide printed instructions for you to use after our computer lessons. I can help you learn what you need to know to use a computer: for work, for school or for yourself.

I have been teaching QuickBooks at universities, community colleges and small businesses for more than 15 years (QuickBooks for PC, Mac, and QuickBooks Online).

I have taught Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and Word (for both Windows and Apple/Mac computers) for many years. I also have quite a bit of experience teaching MS Access, MS Project, MS Visio, MS Publisher, and Adobe InDesign, Adobe Drea
mweaver, HTML for web pages, and Filemaker Pro.

About Josh
I'm a researcher with 8 years of tutoring experience and spent a gap year directing an after-school tutoring program for at-risk youth. Over the years I've tutored dozens of students (in subjects ranging from biology, math, and earth science to English writing, SAT prep, and statistics) and have yet to come across someone whose grades did not significantly improve after our time working together. I'm more than happy to provide references to anyone looking to hear more about my past work.

I'm passionate about tutoring because I believe every student has the potential to thrive in an academic environment. Unfortunately, many students aren't taught in way that helps them achieve conceptual mastery or don't get enough individual attention in the classroom. That's why I believe in the power of the personal, individualized tutoring relationshi
p. When a tutor, I focus on a few things:

1) Concept Mastery - I work to help students understand that it's not enough to just understand how to solve a problem, but that you also need to understand why that solution works. If you have a deep conceptual mastery over the material, you'll be able to solve new kinds of problems with those same skills, even if you haven't encountered a problem like it before.

2) Academic Confidence – I’m always surprised by the number of students that I work with who honestly believe they aren’t smart or capable enough to succeed in school. So, part of my job as a tutor is to help those students understand that hard work and confidence are the key to success, so matter how difficult they find the work initially.

3) Love of Learning – This is perhaps the most important element to me. My favorite teachers were not the ones who managed to cram the most amount of information in my head, but those who helped me be excited about the subjects they taught. As a tutor, I work with students to develop excitement about the subject matter and a love of learning more generally.

Finally, here’s a bit more information about me. Currently, I'm a public health researcher at a large non-profit, and specialize in systematic reviews and project evaluation. I studied Sociology and Public Policy at UNC Chapel Hill. I graduated summa cum laude and received a Chancellor's award for excellence in my field of study. In the new few years, I plan to go back for a PhD in clinical psychology. I look forward to working with you or your student!

Josh was a very patient and a hands on tutor. He took time to get to know each student in order to better assist them personally. He had good boundaries with the students and was able to stay professional while being able to have fun with them. We saw personal gains based on the VA SOL test scores at the end of the school year after his assistance.

Both of my sons went from F’s to B’s with Josh’s help. We had all pretty much given up that they would be able to get good grades in math. We were just hoping Josh could get them to pass. We can’t say enough about Josh’s clear, understandable and relevant guidance. Yes, they got great grades, but he also made them feel confident in their abilities to do the work. He is wonderful!

I love teaching people new things and am motivated by people who love to learn and are not afraid to make mistakes when learning.

About Gilbert
hello today!

I am a very dynamic person. My specialties include computer programming, music composition, and poker.

With respect to programming, I have utilized BASIC, C, C++, Java, REXX, PHP, and JavaScript. This was my career for quite awhile.

I have a total of about 700 musical recordings that I composed and produced. I have hundreds of pages of musical compositions that I have composed and utilized. I taught myself how to compose.

I have always enjoyed the complexities of poker. So many great life lessons! I know how to win, but I have to confess...I usually just can't keep it up! In other words, I expect serious learners to become better players than myself!

Looking forward to any questions, cheers!
