I love working with English students to achieve their professional and personal goals. I come from a state widely considered to foster a 'neutral' American accent, and have served as a coach on a collegiate Speech and Debate team. I have worked with executives, students, musicians, and actors from all parts of the globe to learn and perfect their English skills.

About Carla

I have been signing since 1998, spending every chance I can among my Deaf friends and immersing myself in the language as often as possible. I received my BA in Music with a certification to teach at Lubbock Christian University in 1998. Later I attended the Interpreter Certification program at Burlington County College in New Jersey from 2009-2011, and during that time took a summer course at Gallaudet University for the Deaf in Washington DC. Then in 2014 I received my MEd in Curriculum and Instruction with Instructional Technology from Houston Baptist University. I have been teaching ASL at the high school level since 2011. I am also one of the interpreters for the Deaf at my church in Fort Bend County, TX, outside of Houston, where I am a member and actively involved in the Deaf Ministry.

Please feel free to ask me any questions y

ou have. I'm happy to get back with you, and I look forward to teaching you!

About Rahny

“Make the most of yourself for that is all there is of you.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

I want to tap into that part of you that is on the prowl to answer the “ how’s and why’s”. That is where our journey will unfold. I aspire to nurture a creative and inclusive culture in my sessions.

I don't teach. I LEARN! Learning is an infinitely satiating experience for me. We will laugh, ponder, explore and even pull our hair out from frustration. That's okay because we'll do it all together. Making mistakes is a beautiful test of your resilience and will help to solidify your competencies from your hands-on experiences.

Visualizing your goals as a whole is the basis of my teaching approach. I implore my resources to reconcile the challenges of online learning to foster communication, inclusion, and interaction online. I aspire to forge a rappo

rt that grants your trust and belief in your ability to express your ideas. It is always a bit sad to say goodbye to students, but them walking away with strong foundations, developed skill sets and the ability to expand on them in the future is what I support.

I’ve logged 1,000 hours online in 1-on-1 group sessions with a 9.65 average rating. For my consistency, I was selected to teach the Oxford University Press Children Series. Being inspired by and delighting in shared experiences with my students ignites my addiction to teaching.

I’ve seized volunteer opportunities as a Teaching Assistant with after-school, summer and other teaching programs. I’m a big believer in being proactive. In addition, 8 years in Home Health with adults and children with physical and mental disabilities has had an overwhelming influence on my philosophies toward communication and personal kinships.

Music is an immense passion of mine that continually lavishes me with a wealth of transferable skills to explore creative solutions. I’ve done this by appropriating IPA, vocal pedagogy and my opera background to tackle diction issues. Working with Music and Drama Therapists in Barrier Free Theater acting troupe for adults with physical and mental disabilities to brainstorm and stage a musical starring them, has given me insight into the benefits of group collaboration and preparedness. This is at the heart of my communicative approaches.

I took lessons with Rahny last year. She helped me to refine my essay writing skills. I had never written an essay before. I’d never had a portfolio before either, but it has come in handy in more ways than I ever could’ve imagined. I’ve referenced the materials on vocabulary, pronunciation and essay writing exercises a dozen times.She still takes the time to answer some of my questions.

Thanks for all your patience even though I was running late. I was all ready to cancel my lesson, but you encouraged me to keep my goals in mind and keep moving forward. I loved that you adjusted the material accordingly and worked through the homework together with me. I look forward to our next session. :)

Rahny is very interesting in her approach. It is great how she goes about sharing ideas, extending the discussion and engaging with me and the content. She brings so much liveliness to the class. The texts are very good, practical and related directly to my goals of wanting better communication with my colleagues.

I teach English essay composition to students of every grade level.

About Jesse

I'm a professional Spanish and English tutor with over 10 years of experience teaching at the high school, middle school, and college levels.

I hold a masters degree from Harvard University, a Bachelors degree in Spanish language and Political Science, and a teaching certificate from the Fulbright Scholarship program.

I currently tutor high school students in New York at Horace Mann, Riverdale, Trinity, Collegiate, The United Nations School, and Dwight Englewood.

I help students of every age ace their next Spanish or English exam, paper, or standardized test.

But just as important, I build lasting relationships with my students based on mutual trust and respect. My students come away from tutoring sessions energized, with a sense of confidence and motivation. I believe that meetings with a tutor should be enjoyable, and they

should inspire students to work smart and work hard.

After studying at the University of Havana, in Cuba, I wrote peer-reviewed research, which was published in the journal "Cuba in Transition." A year later, I was awarded a Fulbright grant to teach and conduct research in Montevideo, Uruguay. There, I worked with the U.S. Embassy to create a series of new language courses in public schools.

I speak and write fluently in Spanish. But as a native English speaker, I've learned the Spanish language from the ground up, just like my students.

For both English and Spanish I am an expert in test prep, essay composition, IB/AP, and SAT II.

If you're looking for top-tier, enjoyable, results-driven tutoring, send me a message.

A knowledgeable and patient educator, Jesse has found a teaching style that perfectly balances challenge and inspiration. As a doctoral candidate in the sciences, it is important for me to assert my knowledge of a topic while capturing the attention of the reader. Jesse has taught me to transform bare facts and ideas into structured, sophisticated passages. He has played an active role in building my self-confidence and has helped me find an authentic writing voice to more clearly and elegantly express my thoughts. I am grateful to have his guidance and am eager to vouch for his excellence as a tutor.

I am so lucky that I found Jesse! He is thoughtful, thorough, patient, and kind, and his lessons always felt like they were tailored specifically to me and my needs. Even his teaching materials were personalized to include my name and phrases that only I would need to use (i.e. I'm an actress and piano teacher, and I've been living and working in NYC for over ten years). Highly recommended!

About Kendria

Hello, My Name is Kendria Alexander. I am honored to be able to be part of Texas A &M University educations program. I obtained a huge interest when we went through some struggles with one of our children and the education system. I want to be able to give back to society and generations to come as some of the people on our path helped and guided us. I want to teach merely to make a difference. If I can dive into the education field where I can be a part of a community that will help when needed, I want it! To see the light bulb moment when a student gets it is a feeling that is not replaceable. I want to teach because I think this field is one that is rewarding and awe-inspiring. I believe learning is a life long adventure with some pretty grand people you assist along the way. The personal experiences I have are the paths we took with o

ne of our children. I have a child with a learning disability and the road we have taken has had some amazing people along the way. I have learned and want to share that you can go after your dreams and reach them! That nothing is impossible if you try and never give up.

"Mrs. Ghada E. is a well oriented and enthusiastic teacher. She gives clear verbal and written instructions to her students during class. Mrs. Ghada is v
ery organized and knowledgeable in her subject area. She is an enthusiastic, very patient and humorous sometimes. Mrs. Ghada is a self motivated and a fast learner when it comes to learning new teaching strategies. She encourages me to go the extra step in learning by sending me her written feed back notes on my submitted assignments. I liked that she always response quickly to my email questions. Mrs. Elfarra can adjusts her teaching techniques to help students with different learning styles succeed in her class by varying her assignments and assessment methods like short written or spelling quiz...etc.. She is kind and understanding teacher and capable of handling difficult situations. Mrs. Ghada is a very helpful and kind teacher, I am very please to take her class."
