About Tiffani
Hey There! My name is Tiffani and I can't wait to meet you and get you started on your own path to learning English, writing a novel, or reducing your accent. I have been a Freelance Writer since 1996 and an educator since 2005, specializing in English Language Learning and Writing. I'm the author of four books and thousands of articles and news stories, and I'm certified in ESL and CASAS testing.

I'm also an experienced needle, designer and teacher. I have been teaching crochet for more than 10 years, and I'd love to teach you how to make something beautiful using this easy, elegant craft.

My articles have appeared in magazines and newspapers, like Yahoo! News and Pennsylvania Magazine.

I have a flexible teaching style, and my bachelor's degree in Cognitive Science and my 15+ year history in working with students with specia
l needs, allows me to approach lessons from many different angles. No matter your difference, I am the teacher who can help you reach your goals because your goals are my goals.

I have been teaching private lessons since 2005. I'm available most days of the week (check out my calendar), and I can work with you online through Skype, in person in the Allentown area at a coffeehouse or your home. Contact me for specific details, and I'll get back to you right away.

Learning a new language, or how to launch your freelance writing career, can be daunting, but you have everything within you to be successful. I'm here to help share my gifts, education, and experience with you. Contact me today, so I can help you reach your goals and realize your dream. Blessings!

About Richard
I can't wait to work with you! I am passionate about the subjects I teach, and find nothing can compare to seeing a student "get it", so they may too enjoy the passion that comes from learning and doing something they love.

Everything I teach I've learned most completely by doing as a Professional, and find great reward in sharing my experience and knowledge with my students.

When the "aha" light goes on, it's truly a wonderful moment for me, and encourages me to drive my students to build towards more of those moments as students, and then ultimately, for themselves as they learn to grow for themselves.

About Josh
Hi!

I have been working with students for several years in formal and informal settings. I have a degree in psychology, with a minor in statistics. A couple years ago I began coaching chess at several local DC area schools, and tutoring private students. I love to help people learn a new subject, and I am especially passionate about engendering the joy of learning in young people. I've recently moved to the Harrisbug, PA area, and am now teaching lessons here!

Thanks!
Josh

About Alexandra
I love learning and teaching languages and although I studied law I really prefer teaching languages (I speak 5 languages) and sewing (another of my favourite hobbies) love travelling and photography.

I will be happy to answer the questions which arise in between your one-on-one lessons. In short, I will do everything I can to increase your rate of language acquisition.

It goes without saying that I love to teach! I have an easy-going personality and a positive attitude. Learning such a beautiful and multifaceted language as Spanish or Romanian will be fun with me. I love travelling, I have hosted many exchange students, so I have developed good communication and creativity skills.

I will encourage your interest and curiosity into the different cultures by using amusing topics during the session, which will automatically imp
rove your experience.

I am able to communicate with students at a very personal level . I am very passionate and enthusiastic to get them to learn. I will also promote study habits.

I have a lot of nice material and is interested in what people have to say and their needs. I am friendly and kind; I try to correct students making sure they don't feel embarrassed. I makes people feel comfortable, and encourages them to participate and learn, -even the shy ones. I enjoy the class as much as you.

About Chanel
Crochet: I have been teaching myself how to crochet since I was 11. I taught myself after learning how to knit at the age of 10. I have made scarves, hats, bralettes, shorts, animal-themed rugs, animal-themed purses, headbands etc., for sale since I was back home in NY. Now that I am in Atlanta, I have decided to sell lessons so people can customize these creations to their own discretion.
Algebra: I am a college student studying biology and I have taken calculus and aced the class. I have tutored elementary, middle and high school students in this subject and they have all passed their classes.

Hi, there! I'm an art student and a practicing artists with a keen interest in math. I study at Art Students League of New York and I take private art lessons as well. I study math on my own. What I would like to offer to my future little student is to develop their understanding of visual organization and mathematical thinking simultaneously. For example learning to count and learning to watercolor can be done together! How fun!
