About Glenda
After studying at Cass Tech High School and Wayne State University in MI, I have enjoyed teaching privately, in groups, and at churches, I have performed vocally and instrumentally throughout the US and in 8 foreign countries, and taught at public, charter, and private schools. It is important to tailor each lesson to a student's individual needs and ability to ensure that their experience is as rewarding as possible!

About Gregorio
My name is Gregorio M. I am a native speaker of Spanish with a very clear pronunciation. I am a Spanish instructor at Washtenaw Community College. I have a degree in chemistry and a master degree in environmental chemistry.
I have been working as a Spanish tutor in the Ann Arbor area since 2009.
I can teach you all aspects of Spanish language: listening comprehension, pronunciation, reading capacity and analysis, writing, grammar rules, slang and colloquial Spanish, academic Spanish, conversational fluency. Additionally, I could give you, if you are interested, information about Hispanic culture and customs, and more.
You can ask me anything about Spanish and get an explanation. If you ask me "Why do people say this or that in Spanish?", you will get a reasonable answer. I'm not one of those teachers who say "It's just because it's lik
e that in Spanish".

I have been working with Gregorio for about 9 months and it has been so helpful. He has helped me with my pronunciation, reading and listening comprehension, and my writing. He has a gentle manner and always gives me feedback I can trust. He is flexible and willing to work on the questions I have but is also ready to provide an activity that fits my level.

About Tara
I absolutely love teaching! I believe that everyone can improve their communication and expression, and I have had the pleasure of helping many students better understand what they read and better express their ideas in communication. I hold a CELTA/TOFEL & Bachelor's and a Master's degrees, and I have years of experience as a classroom teacher. I have tutored many students at the business high school college levels. I enjoy working one-on-one with students so that I can help them with their particular academic needs and tailor my lessons to them. I specialize in pronunciation of the English language, and those who are struggling with comprehending business language. I also teach and help those who are preparing for working with government agencies and universities. I can offer assistance with understanding the development of ideas, proof
reading, and editing. I can help with a specific business / college assignment or course, or I can offer more general lessons to help improve your overall communication skills. I am generally available for tutoring all day (with specific attention given to Asian and Pacific timezone) including the weekends. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you succeed in your studies!

About Judy
I am a teacher with over 18 years of experience teaching reading and writing. I am also a writer and have written and published several articles pertaining to teaching and parenting topics for a variety of publications. My recent retirement from my teaching career has given me an opportunity to devote my time and experience to teaching students in an individualized setting instead of a classroom setting.

First, I assess each student to determine strengths and areas of concern. Then, we will work to establish achievable, measurable goals. Individualized lesson plans and activities such as literacy games, supportive technology, and celebrations of success will support each student's growth. I look forward to helping you achieve your goals!
