I've been a freelance writer and blogger for more than 15 years and a writing tutoring and coach for more than 10 years. Writing is my passion!

When working with students, I design tutoring experiences that are truly customized to the student's specific needs and goals. I strive to make the experience enjoyable and incorporate a variety of activities and learning experiences, aside from simply writing, into my teaching sessions.

Rebecca has been tutoring my daughter in reading. My daughter enjoys her lessons and is always excited when I tell her she has tutoring. Rebecca is very laid back and understanding as my daughter is easily distracted and wonders off topic. She is able to easily coax her back to the task at hand. She has been improving every session as Rebecca sends me updates and a type of "progress report". She also gives us worksheets to work on for homework and goes over them with her in the following session. In these hard times, I'm grateful I connected with her! She has been a great asset to my daughters education.

Spanish Language, lessons and tutoring. I have taught, tutored and teach Spanish to USA Veterans and students struggling around campus for years. I have years of academic and practical usage/experience with the language. I grew up hearing it and studied it in high school and at the college level. I know what it is like to be a student in a Spanish class as well as using it in real life application. I also have 2 minors in Spanish Language and Latino/a and Latin American Studies (Formerly known as CBS: Chicano-Boricua Studies) which give me the perfect mix of language and culture.

I am very patient and work on your level. I have years of academic and practical usage/experience with the language. I use that experience to put myself in your shoes and give tips and cultural things that may help you better understand your new language. Also, my knowledge of Psychology helps us hack learning in a time efficient way. No question is ever a dumb question and we will spend as much time on a ...

Had to write a separate review for this subject. Jamone taught me step-by-step how to use my Cannon Rebel EOS T5. I am a youtube vlogger, and I was looking to create higher quality videos for my viewers. Jamone gave me tons of camera knowledge to better my videos. Thanks!

Philippe was such a wonderful instructor throughout my time with him. I was resuming French after about a year and a half of informal learning, and he was very accomodating while also pushing me to explore more advanced topics. He uses engaging resources that improve students' verbal, reading, and especially speaking skills. I cannot recommend Philippe enough!
Sam
Phillipe is an open minded professor with an extensive experience of current affairs which is great to enhance my speaking, reading and comprehension in French. Working with Phillipe I have seen improvement in my language skill. Thanks to his learner centered approach and interactive exercises.
PJ
Philippe is an excellent French instructor. He was quickly able to identify my strengths and weaknesses in the langauge and helped me focus on where I needed the most help. He has access to great and varied online resources, which kept the lessons interesting. Most importantly, Philippe is fluent in English at a very high level, which means he could explain complex phrases and concepts to me, helping further my understanding of the French language. I absolutely recommend him to anyone seeking to improve their French!

I start with observation. I'll ask you to write about something you know. We'll explore different ways to write about the same thing. We'll look at examples of great writing as a teaser and to get things rolling.

We'll start wherever you are and jumpstart your ability to express yourself.

"I am a sixth grade student, and Julia has been a very good math tutor to me for about 3 years already, and I plan to keep going to her for a while. I am seeing lots of improvement at school, and my MAP and other test scores have increased greatly since the start of Julia helping me out this year. Two things that are great about Julia as a tutor, are that she never, ever yells or gets frustrated when I don’t understand how to do something. Also, she takes as much time as needed to explain a hard problem to me, and she does that very clearly, until I fully understand how to do that problem. My overall opinion of Julia is that she is one of the best math tutors out there, because I had to go through many other tutors to find a good one, and Julia is the best."
