Stephenie is the perfect combination of knowledge, practical skill, patience, and encouragement. She has a student centered style that makes you feel comfortable asking questions and expressing struggles. She is right there next to you in your educational journey. I always have the sense that she has my back, that she genuinely cares about my progress. And she has a gentle sense of humor as well. I wish there were more teachers like her.
Ellen
I've known Stephenie for a number of years and in different professional roles. The thing that impressed me the most was her ability to be organized and give clear directions. She is articulate and caring. I've experienced firsthand her attention to the details of each person who she was either serving or supervising. I think she will be a great teacher for any subject.

"I would recommend Jesse for any tutoring need without reservation. In our household, Jesse has helped amplify the Spanish learning for a middle/hs student, helped an older student with the application process for graduate work and worked with someone on writing. He’s phenomenal at all of it for the following reasons: his patience, intelligence and good nature are exceptional; he can work with all temperaments; he will meet your student where they are. Most important: he is systematic and provides real executive functioning support for each task. He is an unusually talented tutor and human being."

English Language Conversations for Beginners

Although words may be limited and simple, it is still possible to enjoy conversations in English even if you are a beginner. I think that it’s essential to be able to express basic needs and to clearly express your identity. Let’s get started with the very basics and then we’ll build from there. Greetings and Introductions: When meeting new people you need to be able to greet them. If you are in an informal situation you might say, “Hey, I’m (name), nice to meet you.” In order …
