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!

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.

About Mathew
I have been coaching chess for years. I have been passionately studying the game of chess for 13 years. I am currently a 1987 USCF player (Class A player). My highest rating was 2121 for chess.com blitz rating. But I am committed to go to 2200+ USCF player (National Master player). I have won several chess tournaments as well. I recently won the 2018 Philadelphia Open Chess Tournament.

I am currently coaching several students to go above and beyond their expectations. If you hire me as your coach, I will take you above and beyond your expectations in the game of chess. My coaching style is hands on, which means that I provide move by move feedback. My coaching philosophy is grounded in encouragement and meticulous game review. My one student that I have been coaching for 2 years went from never playing chess to a 1350 USCF chess rating
.

I graduated from Kutztown University of PA in 2013 with a B.S. in Biology: Molecular/Micro/Cell with two Minors in Mathematics and Biochemistry. I have such a passion for math, science, and chess. And I try to live with that passion everyday and show that passion to people everyday.

Matt as my first chess coach and has greatly increased my understanding of chess. My games are now competitive with players 400 to 600 rating points above me and I feel I am improving every week. Funny how much I can learn quickly after playing for forty years, with just a few lessons.

My son USCF rating 1400+ took a trial lesson with Danial. Danial is methodical and systematic in his coaching. He was quick to identify what my son needs to improve in order to get to the next level. The most important thing is that my son enjoyed his one-hour lesson and literally felt that the lesson time flew by as it felt like only 2 minutes long to him. My son gives Danial thumbs up and 5 stars.

About Terry
I learned to sew as a teenager. It became a hobby that I became passionate about that grew into a business when I decided to take an early retirement. I’m interested in helping others learn how to perfect their skills and and be proud of their work.

I’m familiar with the challenges that sewing can present and knows the patience that it can take. Some time you may need that extra help or opinion on how to get something done correctly. I would like to share my experience and lessons learned with you.

About Rachel
I am a certified instructor yet always the student. I love to learn new skills so that I can pass them on to my students. Working 1 summer at camp defined me as a teacher. I am patient and understanding of all learning styles. No 2 students learn the same and I cater my lesson to each person individually.
My mother taught me to crochet when I was 8, but I didn't learn to knit until I was an adult. I quickly surpassed both my "teachers" to the point that I had to seek out a master instructor, and even figure things out on my own.

My beginner student project becomes your everyday go to usable project, a washcloth. Many make several before moving on to other projects such as hats, scarfs, blankets, socks and even easy, one piece sweaters!

I have researched the science behind yarn crafting and can show you how knitting and crochet can imp
rove grades in all levels of school, retrain older brains to focus, improve memory of the aged and even decrease physical therapy times post surgery; even hand and arm surgery!

I work with addiction counselors to help those afflicted recover faster, and find a healthy outlet that stays with you for the rest of your life.

My students describe me as the teacher they wished they found first. Let me teach you!

Had a wonderful experience with Rachel. She has helped me to understand and read patterns better. In addition she has helped to establish a better tension on my knitting (and crochet) so that the patterns fit the designated stitch gauge better.

Rachel is an incredibly capable knitting teacher. She has patience as well as clear guidance in a learning situation. Whatever task, stitch or just overall learning to knit is your goal, Rachel is entirely confident that she can help you achieve it.
Nothing seemed too complicated for her to teach me to do.

About Laura
I'm a self-taught knitter, and I started knitting over ten years ago. I also crochet, and I've been doing that for over fifteen years now! I love learning new techniques and pushing the limits of what I can do! I've made tons of scarves, hats, and mitts, but I've also made blankets, ornaments, and others.

I teach students that have never knitted/crocheted before, or have experience and just want help with a specific pattern, or want to push the limits and try something new!

Want to make something as a holiday gift? We can pick a simple project and have it done in time for the holidays!

I love knitting patterns with interesting textures, and my favorite style is mosaic colorwork!

Reach out and we can figure out a plan that works well for you!

About Danielle
I am a certified hula hoop instructor through a HoopLove hula hoop teacher training course that I completed early 2017. I have been teaching since 2016, and have been hooping since 2014. Hula hooping has changed my life single-handedly. The amount of joy and confidence and a healthier mind that it continues to give to the world is endless. I have seen many people overcome tremendous mindful obstacles through hula hoop dance, it is a healthy way of expression. Currently, I work full time as a hoopsmith, hand crafting perfomance hula hoops to performers and people all over the world. My availability is very flexible. Students can be prepared to use the connection between body & mind through self expression with a hula hoop. I have taught students of all different ages and experience levels. To further my own teachings and experience, I c
ontinuously attend local work shops of performance hula hoopers that tour in Philadelphia. I also create tutorials online for free to teach some of my own style of hoop dance, and I am planning to record and upload many more in the upcoming months. I have a large following on social media and am very much involved with the hooping community and always know of local & not local hula hooping events happening all the time. If you have any more questions, feel free to reach out! I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better version of yourself!
