Tim K.

Schertz, TX

I received six hours of college credit in English from Trinity University based upon my entrance exam scores. As a substitute teacher I have taught English and Language Arts at all levels from kindergarten through high school. I have tutored students in English and Language Arts at all levels. My daughter was diagnosed with expressive language disorder. I tutored her extensively in English throughout elementary school, middle school, high and college. She graduated from Texas Lutheran University with degrees in Accounting, Finance and Business Administration in 2010.

Tim is a wonderful teacher! I've taken voice lessons before and had been in choirs growing up, but I recently decided to get back into singing as an adult. He has helped me to continue to learn proper vocal technique and we've worked on beautiful, challenging songs. Tim has shown me how to finally overcome my horrible "solo nerves" with different exercises - something I thought was impossible! I would recommend him to any singer - beginning or experienced.

Emphasis on Grammar

Combine subjects for a price break. For example 30 minutes of Math and 45 minutes of English would cost $50 separately, but would cost $45 for 75 minutes of Combined Tutoring. Simply choose ONE subject for the amount of tutoring time desired, and notify me which subjects you'd like to cover.

Julie is an excellent teacher and professional. Her knowledge base is incredible; she absolutely is a master. She knows exactly how to reach my 5-year-old and my 11-year-old, and teach them where they are. She stretches them, and it is amazing to see how far they've come in just a short while. Julie teaches them piano in a multitude of ways: they listen, they play, they move, they sing, they read, they study, they write. It's so much more than just sitting at the piano and playing notes. My children are learning to MAKE MUSIC and it is a beautiful thing. I'm very happy we found Julie Lopez.

Charis C.

Brooklyn, NY

My approach to teaching and coaching language learners comes from decades of teaching New York City students from all over the world, and the fact that my ancestors have been speaking English for over 1,000 years. I also spent my childhood tutoring a younger brother for whom the language arts were difficult, and with great success: he is now a voracious reader and a history scholar who writes every day. Along with teaching, I’m an award-winning, published writer and spent twenty years editing and coaching some of the world’s most respected writers, along with students of all ages. Along with traditional approaches to language teaching, I also incorporate customized counseling methods that give students a confidence in their abilities and an enthusiasm for English that will set them free.

Luke R.

Enterprise, AL

My fluency and passionate study of foreign languages has given be a broad understanding and enjoyment of human communication. My experience includes Latin, Italian (standard and dialects), Etruscan, Ancient Greek, Modern Greek, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Polish, Czech, Ukrainian, Bulgarian, Old Norse, Old English, Japanese, Chinese, and Hebrew.

In all cases, I was deeply interested in the forces which shaped these languages and continue to shape them. Whatever your interest in language, I assure you I share it!
