Warinya R.

San Francisco, CA

About Warinya

Hello!
I am a recent graduate from University of California, Berkeley, majoring in Legal Studies and Political Economy minor. Teaching has always been my favorite thing to do! It feels great to share knowledge, techniques and skills on a particular subject and even better when the students can use it for their school and/or career advancement.
I started teaching in 2008 in Bangkok, Thailand. My first job was an English tutor for Thai students (part time) while attending the final year of high school. After I have moved to the US, whenever I have time, I always accept teaching jobs, mostly r
eferrals from my friends or friend of friends.

Warinya is a great piano teacher for my three kids (ages 5 to 8) They love her and enjoy her classes. She has developed a good incentive system that keeps the kids focused and motivated. All are progressing at their own pace. I'm very happy.

Mary P.

San Francisco, CA

About Mary

I have been a Reading Specialist since 1970. Since that time, I have written several books on how to avoid and solve reading problems. My first book, "At Last! A Reading Method for EVERY Child!" was the Main Selection on 3 of Macmillan Book Clubs: Early Learning Book Club, Teachers Book Club, and Library of Special Education Book Club. It is my greatest joy to teach children to read - especially those with reading problems and being able to share with them the excitement of succeeding. Over the years, I have acquired a sizable file of motivating reinforcement activities which make learning fun
and keep the students coming back for more. In 2005-2006, I was honored by inclusion in "Who's Who Among American Teachers." I also love teaching Primary Math - the easy way. As a senior, I feel I have a special rapport with students - a gentle, seasoned approach that puts them at ease with the confidence that they are in very capable hands.

I am pleased to recommend Mary to parents who are looking for special help in reading for their children. Mary is an excellent teacher and gives her students a very positive learning experience. I taught with Mary for several years and always found her excited about taking on new challenges with students. She once took three siblings from Norway, who spoke very little English, and gave them the tools to speak, read, and write in very little time. She is amazing!

Allison and I worked on a screenplay together which won an award. The process by which that screenplay was written, is the interesting part. Allison shared many different ways that she uses to create the world of the story and then fill it with characters. She easily explains how interactions and dialogue can be elevated, in order to pull an audience member into the story. I have never seen such a unique and easy to follow writing style as Allison shared with me.

Enjoy creating with a true creator.

Allison sees things, creates scenes, personifies purity in her writing that can only be described as singularly unique! Personally, she helped me to expand my vision, redirect ANYTHING from my past or present toward creative expression and ultimately made me a better poet, script writer and professional entertainer. You could not find a more caring, enthusiastic and easy-going teacher!
