I've had the opportunity to take several online French language classes over the years, as well as in-person tutoring. I'd easily rank Philippe among the best I've had, as he readily adjusted to my pace of learning and desired learning objectives, pushed me to improve but didn't force his own agenda, and maintained a great, positive, and motivating attitude throughout our experience. The next time I'm doing online classes I will unhesitatingly connect with him, and I'd happily recommend him to anyone else looking to learn French, whether to begin or to refine their existing French.

I had the pleasure of learning higher intermediate/conversational French with Philippe last year for several weeks. I must say that he was the best French professor I ever had. He was extremely meticulous with his approach and took the time to understand my strengths and weaknesses and curated the course based on that. He understood that there were days when I was finding the right words and would take the lead in our conversations. Whereas, other days, he would let me lead the discussions. We discussed on topics related to politics, society, religion, science, travel and business. He was extremely polite, and professional and didn't impose any of his beliefs and stayed true to his goal of helping me improve my French skills. By the end of our session, I was able to make a presentation of my work in international development and global health with him in French. He even helped me translate my poem in French. In addition to providing me with the ears to understand spoken French better, and the ability to speak more correctly, he also immensely helped with grammar topics such as subjunctive, future, and conditional sentences. I provide my highest recommendation of Philippe and assure you that he will make your French learning experience the one to remember.
Brian
Lessons with Philippe are a true pleasure. He is well-read, articulate, and funny. He takes the time to get to know his students and focuses the lessons around conversations and areas of interest. I have experienced immense improvement to my vocabulary and grammar, as well as in my confidence to speak and "think in French." I most appreciate that Philippe is not shy about providing useful feedback or recognizing hard work and improvement. Would highly recommend.

The teacher is very nice to the student, helps the student in different ways, and explains problem so the student understands their mistake.
Charley
Meagan is very flexible and is a great teacher. She doesn't make the student feel self-conscious about answering wrong, She gently asks the student to explain how they came up with the answer and allows them to correct themselves. If the student doesn't realize their error during the explanation, she explains to the student wherein the equation they made an error. She also repeats the problem areas with the student until they have a full understanding of the process.

I sought Meagan out after my daughter came home with a failing grade in Algebra I. I am very happy with my selection, she is the perfect fit for my daughter. She is very flexible and I appreciate that she doesn't make my daughter feel like her lack of understanding of the subject matter makes her inadequate. I am going to continue hiring Meagan for the duration of the school year, my daughter really likes her and is learning far more than she is from her regular classroom environment.

I am a chemical engineer and as an engineer, you can never ignore maths because Mathematics is the language of physical science and engineering, Mathematics is more than tool for solving problems; mathematics courses can develop intellectual maturity. Mathematics is a part of everyone's life. Every student should experience the thrill of mathematical discovery. Every teacher can appreciate the elegance of a great mathematical insight.I also offer tutoring services in Prealgebra, Algebra 1;2, Pre calculus, Calculus, Geometry, Trigonometry.My experience in tutoring Maths have led me to compile my own practice sheets in each topic that has helped the students in so many years. My teaching philosophy is straightforward: teach your students as you would want to be taught - with enthusiasm, and with a passion for the subject combined with respect and understanding for the students. When teaching maths I make sure that the basics are grasped well because this is the only subject that ...

Alisha is extremely well-informed and an expert in Organic Chemistry. She knows exactly what she is talking about and, more importantly, *understands* it and can articulate the concepts in a way that is easy to comprehend. She is patient with me and is willing to go slowly on practice problems so I can fully grasp the concepts and theory. I would hire Alisha again in a heartbeat.

For everyone out there that hears the word "Algebra" and runs away, it's time you knew a secret. Algebra can be fun and can be simple. Algebra is really just solving puzzles. Once you found out the easiest way for you to solve jigsaw puzzles, they probably became a lot easier! And notice I said the easiest way for YOU. We don't all solve puzzles in the same way. I solve them best when I do all outside pieces first. My brother solves them best when he finds pieces of the same color or pattern. I even have a friend that solves them by going across in rows. So you see, there are lots of ways to get to the same answer. Same thing for any type of math. Find what works for you and you're set to go! During my Algebra lessons, I focus on helping you discover your easiest way and I use lots of concrete objects.

I've been teaching Algebra over 10 years in my private tutoring practice. I'm pleased that the majority of my students realize a full letter grade improvement (or more).

Chase was way behind reading in the first grade. It was becoming a serious problem as Chase grew to hate school. That is, until Miss Becky came to help.

Mother, father, teachers, and grandparents all tried to help. But none of us could get to him…he completely shut down. His tears and frustration were heartbreaking for all of us.

In three months of lessons with Chase and coaching for the adults (we changed our approach entirely), Chase not only caught up with first grade reading, but was more than ready for the second grade.

As Chase entered the second grade, we continued lessons with Miss Becky to ensure that Chase did not fall behind. He did very well that school year...what a huge difference from the previous year! He got to the point where he could read everything in front of him. The entire family was elated, especially Chase! Now he could read and understand vocabulary words that were one and two grades ahead of him. As he enters the third grade, reading is no longer a nightmare!!

With Miss Becky's academic knowledge and her very special approach to teaching children, she has made one boy and his family very happy!

Thank you, Miss Becky, from the very bottom of all of our hearts!

Becky helped my children immensely! She was able to assess their knowledge base, highlight areas that required improvement and fine tune those areas they were doing well in. She was engaging, encouraging, organized, clear and concise with her teachings, which resulted in enormous growth. We highly recommend Becky and can not thank her enough for her dedication and fun teaching methods.

Since 2010 I have been tutoring college students mostly on Principles of Finance, both the Bachelor and Master's degree levels. I usually help them do the homeworks, quizzes and prepare for exams. But perhaps the main thing I do for them is to help them understand finance and what is being taught by the professor. I use my expertise (see my licenses in my profile) and experience to help them see how finance works in real life and how it relates to the not-so-realistic academic environment. One thing is to read and imagine and another is to have done it and lived it; that's what I provide. I also, occasionally, help students with extra credit or special written assignments, such as retirement extra credits, CapStone quizzes and CAPSIM simulations, which are not only finance-related but require business experience.

"Jennifer is a wonderful tutor who not only has deep expertise in her subjects but knows how to take that expertise and help her students to become better students. The result is that her students are able to retain what is taught in various subjects. My daughter has been tutored for years by Jennifer and is an honors student. We definitely believe that Jennifer is a major factor in her success. We recommend her highly and as my daughter has matured during her time with Jennifer, she values her insight and advice as she plans to take the next steps toward college admission. We are very fortunate to have a resource in our community that not only we as parents value, but that the students themselves value too."

"I had Jonathan for two years in high school; he taught both my Latin IV and AP Latin classes. I feel obliged to credit Jonathan for bringing my interest and abilities in the Classics to levels that I could never have reached without his guidance. When I first took his class, I had some interest in Roman history and mythology as well as knowledge of basic conjugations and tenses, but I was by no means an exceptional or particularly motivated Latin student. Magister Hills changed that. His dynamic and engaging lectures, carefully prepared exercises, and thorough feedback on papers and projects changed Latin as well as Roman history from mild interests of mine to real passions. Magister Hills was always available and more than willing to help students before and after school, as well. With his help, I was able to earn a 5 on the AP Latin exam as well as an 800 on the SAT Subject Test as a junior. Prior to having Jonathan, I probably would have laughed if you told me I was capable of achieving those scores...his teaching really did transform me as a Latin student. Tomorrow I leave for college as an intended Classics major in one of the most rigorous programs in the United States. I'm confident that Jonathan's instruction has more than prepared me for the Latin course that I will take this fall semester. I wholeheartedly recommend Jonathan as an instructor to anyone interested in learning Latin or Greek."
