I have had one lesson with Mr. Arron and it is enough to tell that he is a great teacher. He clearly knows how to play guitar. He is both encouraging and firm. He explained to me the expectations for my practice and what he wants me to learn by next week, I am very happy to have him as my guitar teacher.He is an amazing talent and provides me with much needed inspiration.

About jennifer
Hola! I am a native Spanish speaker, fluent in both Spanish and English. I understand how difficult it can be to learn a new language, especially when you have other subjects to worry about. My personal learning experience helped me understand what is important in developing a practical and easy tutoring program and successfully implementing it.

My tutoring experience began in 2008, my first year of College. I was looking to earn a little cash on the side to help pay for books and school fees. My most memorable tutoring experience was when I lived in Spain for a few months and tutored College level Spanish.
I believe my qualification and many years of Spanish tutoring with students of all ages and levels have rounded my experience as a private tutor. I have been exposed to a variety of personalities, learning curves challenges and ha
ve had the opportunity to customize and direct my teaching to the individual students needs and personal style.

About Marion
Hi, I'm Marion. I bring a lifetime of experience helping people of all ages improve their writing, and English skills. My experience with second language learners is extensive. Whatever your skill set, age, abilities, or background, I can help make you a better writer.

I've worked with middle, high school and college students on developing the reading, writing and research skills needed for success in many academic areas. I've worked with second language learners on speaking, reading, and writing.

Preparing for essay tests is one of my areas of expertise, but my teaching philosophy is less about preparing for a particular test than it is about developing strategies that work for a broad number of tests and in real life situations.

I love working with adults and younger people on developing storytelling techniques, and public spe
aking skills for presentations and interviews, as well as for personal events. These are great confidence builders with real world results!

Whatever type of writing you need to work on, it would be my honor and privilege to work with you.

About Anna
Dear student,
Here are a few facts about me.
I am a native of France. For a part of my life I had to follow a “practical” course, and earned a degree in aerospace engineering, a profession I practiced successfully for several years at the French spatial agency. But I was eventually able to abandon the engineering profession in order to devote myself entirely to my true calling.
As an opera singer, I have been performing in places such as Cortot concert hall in Paris or Carnegie Hall in New York. I have been teaching voice for years now, to kids and adults. I have also been teaching French since my arrival in the US.
I therefore teach French diction too, to professional singers and actors.
I also enjoy teaching music initiation to the little ones (3 to 6 years old).
I would be happy to answer all the questions regarding my work.
Wa
rmly,
Anna

Anna was a great teacher. She has always perfectly adapted to my needs and level, finding the appropriate ways to coach me. I have made considerable progress with her and would strongly recommend her sensitive and rigorous teaching.

Among many skills, she herself has an extraordinary voice and vocal technique which will make you even more willing to develop your vocal skills.

About Zheng
I graduated from New York University with 3.9 GPA and degrees in both Economics and Computer Science. I'm currently working on Wall Street in the investment banking industry. I have been tutoring students in math and science subjects ever since I was in high school.

"Simplicity" is my core teaching philosophy. None of my students would get confused no matter how complicated the problem is because I would break it down to small, easy to understand pieces and even a three-year-old can learn it :)

I graduated from New York University with a Computer Science degree as well. I have learned different Programming languages including Python, Java, C++, R, Javascript during college and I'm specialized in Python web development. I like Python the most because it is the simplest and most popular programming language in the world. I have built
different web development apps with python and Django over the years. And I have been tutoring students on Python at New York University for a year.

I had scored 800 in SAT Math and 36 in ACT Math. During my college, I have taken calculus 1, 2, 3; math for econ 1, 2, 3; linear algebra 1, 2, 3; statistics; game theory; R and various math courses with a 3.9 (out of 4.0) GPA. I have been an NYU math tutor during sophomore year to senior year.

Mandarin Chinese is my mother tongue. I grew up in China and have been living in the U.S for over 10 years. I fully understand the cultural and language differences between Chinese and English. With more than 5 years teaching experience in Chinese for all age groups, I can help you improve all aspects of Chinese, including reading, writing, listening and speaking, etc.

I'm very flexible with my schedule and I'm here to solve all of your problems regarding math, computer programming and Chinese. I like seeing my students achieve success in school and work. Teaching has been my passion for years and will continue to be. Do not hesitate to contact me. I'm always here to help you!

Salam! Hello!

Are you studying Arabic or want to practice your Arabic with a native speaker? Let me help you!

I am a native Arabic Speaker ( Egyptian) and am available to help you practice and correct you and give you pointers.

Arabic can be tricky because a lot of schools teach the classical Arabic which NO one uses - the Egyptian Dialect is the one that everyone understands because of Egypt's very popular and established media and entertainment industry + its renowned scholars.

I will help teach you the practical Arabic that you can practically use and I will do it in an easy and straightforward way! Guaranteed:)

I am flexible with my time - just email me in advance and book sessions of 4, 8 or 12 a month - if you require more - no problem!
Have a great day!
