Cristina is an incredible surf instructor. She's down to earth and motivational. I feel much more confident surfing and catching waves. When I started out I couldn't catch a wave on my own and with her guidance after four lessons I'm catching waves regularly. I have so much fun learning about paddling and pop up techniques both on and off the water. She also has such a wealth of knowledge about the ocean that I can already start to read the waves much better and get an idea of which ones I can catch. I'm excited to continue taking lessons with Cristina!

Our son's Algebra tests have improved significantly with these tutoring sessions. Matthew did a great job accessing current knowledge level and working to catch our son up on what he did not understand as well as helping prepare for ongoing quizzes and tests. Very pleased and will continue with the tutoring!

Math is great because there's always one specific answer! My goal with students is to help them understand the path from a problem to its solution. Math is a tool to help develop reasoning and solution seeking skills.

The unique thing that sets me apart as a tutor in any subject is that I first work with the student, and I gently guide them to find the answer on their own.

About Joshua
I am a tutor who earned a music teaching degree, substitute taught, and didn't become a school teacher. I held professional tech retail jobs and am supplementing my life with my passion - education.

Whatever subject or instrument I teach, I celebrate students' successes; and I enjoy helping learners have new aha moments.

The majority of my students take guitar, bass guitar, or Spanish lessons. I am an educator and help my students learn other skills and knowledge sets too.

I went to Ohio State University for college, earned a BA in Music Education, and graduated Cum Laude. I also spent 4 years in the Ohio State University Marching Band.

Through my healing journey, I've developed patience, insight, and understanding for my students' learning processes.

I'm excited to help you incorporate new skills into your life!

Our son first time playing bassoon. Base on my son experience, he find Joshua to be very nice, patients, and explains a lot of information. It help him understand about the instrument and the sound when he play. He do have a sense of humor which help my son to have fun and be more comfortable. He also teaches other instruments, too. Highly recommended to everyone!!!!

· Clarinet · In home
In search of helping our 10 year old son build some self-confidence we sought out clarinet lessons this summer. He started playing in school last year, and it was something our reluctant son liked "enough" to want to build up some competency. Joshua has been amazing! He finds just the right amount of challenge to encourage my son to practice, but not get discouraged. My son looks forward to his lesson each week and told me that he isn't even sure he wants to switch to saxophone next year because he is having so much fun playing the clarinet. Joshua is amazing with children, and has spent time getting to know our kiddo and find out what will work best for him. Patient, calm, and inspiring--very talented instructor.

I've helped students who were below grade level achieve their grade level in Math Literacy. I identify the needs of learners and adapt course content and delivery style to meet the students needs. I prefer to use Expeditionary Learning which involves "learning by doing" and participating in a hands-on experience. Communicate with parent, teachers regarding students' progress.

About peggi
I have been tutoring elementary school students in reading comprehension & math for over 4 years one on one. I've helped students improve grades from failing to B's. I identify the needs of learners and adapt course content and delivery style to meet the students needs. Review materials assigned by the students' teachers and helped students complete homework. Communicated with parents, teachers regarding students' progress.

I like to use hands on learning. By 'doing' helps them to gain a better understanding of the material.

Learning can be fun! Don't let your child fall behind in learning.

Numbers are everywhere in our lives. Sometimes they are our friends and other times we feel like they are standing in our way. I can help you, or your child feel confident in Math. I have experience tutoring College Algebra, College Statistics, and the GRE. Not only can I teach material, but I can teach test strategy to improve efficiency and accuracy. I earned a PhD in Neuroscience which requires a solid foundation in Mathematics. As a mother of young children, I also feel comfortable working with young students.

About Doris
As a lover of all things math and science, I earned a Doctorate in Neuroscience and welcome students of all ages, experiences, and backgrounds. I also teach beginning piano lessons. The vast majority of my teaching experience has been at the college level (Anatomy, Physiology, Chemistry, Biology, Cell Biology, Neuroscience, Psychology, College Algebra, Introductory Statistics). Additionally, I have experience with younger students having previously taught tennis and swimming lessons. As a mother of 2 young children myself, I feel comfortable teaching a wide range of students. I also have experience teaching test strategy and preparing college students for the GRE.

My dissertation focused on the development of cognitive therapies that would aid in the treatment of Alzheimer's Disease. Throughout my research experience, I mentored
over 30 undergraduate students and presented at several conferences (SFN, AAIC, HAPS). I most recently presented my research at the International Conference on Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptors in Chania, Greece. I have published a chapter in a book and am finalizing 3 additional publications for submission.

I took piano lessons for 10 years as a child and adolescent. I competed in a Sonatina competition and was rated 'Superior.' I regularly play for church services. As a high school student, I was the head drum major for the marching band for 3 years. I will teach basic music theory, piano techniques, and help students feel proud of their accomplishments. I welcome beginning students to take lessons in my home.

My tutoring career began as a sophomore in high school when I started to tutor a family friend. After that, I led my own free tutoring program at my local library for underserved children. It was a great experience for me to develop a mentorship with the kids and to develop my leadership skills. Once I graduated high school, I got a summer job with Jose Valdes Math Institute. Since college began, I’ve been doing a lot of one-on-one tutoring with students and I absolutely love it. Math rocks!

As a tutor, I realize that all students learn things in different ways. I try my best to help the student understand the material, not just to memorize it. If the student doesn’t understand it, I try to approach the problem a different way. Having a stable foundation of understanding is especially important when it comes to subjects like math and science, in which the material is cumulative.

About Yazmin
Hi! My name is Yazmin and I am the oldest of five. I was born and raised in San Jose, California and now I attend university only 15 minutes away from home, lucky me! I enjoy working out and I am always up for anything outdoors— hiking, picnics, bicycling you name it! I am a junior bioengineering major at Santa Clara University. My freshman year, I was one of thirty first year students to be awarded for outstanding academic achievement. Once I graduate, I hope to attend medical school and one day become a physician.

With me, math becomes simple. I use real world examples to demonstrate the different ways to approach a problem. I fully understand that math is not something that comes naturally to everyone. I enjoy helping a student progress to the point of fully understanding a subject. I will teach you in a way that really helps you understand rather than get by!
