This is a class for Russian speakers to learn English.
My very first student was Russian-speaking, to whom I taught English. I am fluent in both languages, and enjoy assisting others in their language learning process!

About Julia
Hi! My name is Julia A. I have been tutoring students of all ages and skill levels at learning centers, colleges, libraries and schools since 2008.

My instruction extends nationwide, with students from all corners of the US, utilizing online tutoring services such as Skype.

My main field of study is in MATH (trig, algebra, geometry, precalculus), CHEMISTRY (high school and college), and PHYSICS (high school and college).

I completed my Bachelors in Physics and Mathematics Education at Hunter University and have gained experience with both in-person and online group instruction and curriculum development.

Some examples of the students I have tutored are: Elementary school students preparing for State competitions and exams; High school and College students in preparance for entrance exams, and in subjects such as algebra, geom
etry, trig, precalc, chemistry and physics.

I do Regents and SAT/ACT prep for these subjects as well as the GRE (These are NYS based High School Preparatory Exams - do not hesitate to ask should you need assistance with the ones offered in your state/country).

In addition, I am thorough and meticulous, by paying special attention to how the student grasps information and retains it, I prepare individualized handwritten reviews, with supplemental material found online and in texts.

I assign homework to keep my students ahead of what is going on in class, and a visual and intuitive understanding of the concepts I present is important to me, so I use visual aids (diagrams and interactive models) to help my students integrate what they learn with me in real life situations.

My instruction includes:
1. Tutoring based on the school curriculum
2. Instruction on the home-schooling curriculum
3. Assisting those with a gap in going back to school/university.

I start with an assessment based on what the student has trouble with or last remembers covering in school, and prepare material going from there.

As a result, my students all have improved grades without any need for cramming before tests, and I encourage a stress-free and easygoing learning environment.

My lessons are fun and enthusiastic - these subjects are beautiful and will help open your mind to new ways of thinking - whatever your field of study!

· Algebra · Online
Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools.
I see marked improvements in their grades for this past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise.
Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough.

I've been teaching English for 7 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of the American culture, study abroad, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro!

About Daniel
I love teaching, I can teach you at where you at and take you where you need to be. I only need a student with the desire to learn and to practice.

I like to help students realize they have the intelligence and ability to solve the problems on their own, they just need the right direction. Nothing is too difficult once we understand how to do it!

· Cello · In studio
I am continuing to study cello with Jamie and I am much further along than I anticipated. I also study piano, so I am not a traditional beginner cello student. Jaime is able to fine tune my lessons to take this into account and build on it. He is very knowledgeable about proper technique as well as music theory. I would recommend him without reservation for all abilities and ages.

I am trying to learn Vietnamese because my husband is Vietnamese and speaks Vietnamese with his family. I already knew a little bit but Trang has been helping me increase my vocabulary and learn useful phrases pertaining to my life. The pace of the lesson is not too fast and not too slow. She also does a great job of checking comprehensions with reviews within the lesson. Learning a new language is an active experience and she defitely makes it where your brain has to be active during the lesson! She also has very very gentle and kind personality which makes me feel unafraid to make mistakes! She creates a wonderful learning environment. I have already had 2 lesson with her and I have signed up for 13 more. I’m sure I’ll sign up for even more when those have finished! I look forward to speaking with my in-laws as well as traveling to Vietnam and speaking with the locals:)

I combine an open, conversational approach to learning with a developed understanding of the demands made of students at each level of their English education. One to one tuition affords students the space to identify and target problem areas specific to them. Consequently, tailored learning is at the heart of my approach. I get to know each student's learning habits so that we can work effectively towards their study goals.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE
For three years now I have worked with students of all ages and abilities. Some are preparing for specific tests, and we work with past papers and mark schemes almost every session, honing exam technique. Others simply want to improve their reading and writing - we read books together, practice comprehension and work on writing assignments.
