About Eric
My name is Eric Matthew Brown I am a tutor with a four year college degree (B.A.) in math and philosophy and a sum total of thirteen years experience in professional tutoring. I love to tutor math and see students gain the knowledge necessary to succeed in their math courses and standardized tests. I put emphasis on theoretical comprehension and in tutoring I exhibit precision, clarity, and most of all patience. Frequent repetition and further explanation of theorems and definitions are necessary. I also have the ability to tutor logic, politics, and civics (American government).

It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.

I booked 4 acting sessions with Ms. Ollie for my daughter. Ms. Ollie did a phenomenal job starting from scratch, coaching my daughter for her up coming audition. My daughter had no acting experience, she was shy, and soft spoken but in just 4 short days, Ms. Ollie turned her into a confident, outspoken young actress. My daughter nailed her audition thanks to Ollie!! I will highly recommend her as your acting coach.

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!

Welcome :)

When I was young, I was a fairly shy child. When I was introduced to art, it helped me out of my shell and allowed me to blossom into the person I am today. As I grew, I've learned a wide variety ort mediums to help me express my emotions in different ways. Soon becoming advance in, drawing, painting, animation, realism, writing (spoken word, poetry, rap etc), and proficient in digital design and multimedia. By the time I was 13, I had begun my journey of giving back by helping others learn to express themselves through different forms of art. Holding classes at summer camps and various branches of libraries in the DMV Area.

About Patrick
I am an experienced one-on-one tutor and teacher of American History and Law/Legal History. What I uniquely provide my students is a "passion for rich context"...my background is in history, philosophy, literature, politics and law (I am a licensed environmental attorney by profession). For example, when we cover the period of the early American republic (1783-1800), we won't just memorize names and dates, but we will understand the richness of the age of 1780s Philadelphia and Boston, Pennsylvania and Virginia, the growers, merchants. Puritans and Quakers, their religions and philosophies and private and social/political interests, what led to the Whiskey Rebellion and the Alien and Sedition Acts, what the newly independent Americans wanted from their government, how they rebelled against the imposition of new restraints, and how 1800 re
presented a second revolution. All the great periods of American History will similarly come alive in a fun, engaging, and therefore memorable way for you!
