Kaplan University certified test prep teacher/tutor: ACT, GMAT, GRE, SAT

About Angela
Having tutored middle and high school students, I've learned that the best tutoring session is 2 hours. This gives the student time to discuss school challenges, how to solve school related problems, to discuss various subjects, etc. Young students are often not prepared for my visit even when they know in advance that I am coming, so every additional minute can be useful. However, I am totally flexible on this so you are invited to tell me what you believe would be a good session length for you.

My ultimate goal, for working with you, is to hear you say, "I am so glad we found you!" When you feel that you have reached a satisfactory level of learning/development through our working together, you are invited to terminate our tutor/tutee relationship. Let's remain friends, though. Please watch my video. I am the real deal; you
can see the real me.

For a writing lesson, for example, I first talk to the student and review a writing sample or assignment to assess what skills need to be targeted. Then I address each skill in its logical order. For example, the student first needs to understand the purpose of the assignment and its specific requirements. The next stage might require how to approach and analyze a text and then how to organize, revise, and edit the writing. Throughout this process, I check for the student's understanding.

About Marcelle
In addition to having an MA in English and a JD in law, I have had over 30 years of English teaching experience, mostly at the college level. I've taught a variety of courses and tutored students in a variety of skills, including ESL; composition and grammar; analytical writing and critical thinking; American, British, and world literature; business writing and communications; introductory courses to the American legal system, and legal writing. At present, I'm teaching ESL to international professionals and other adults to help them improve their speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills. I also help ESL students prepare for the TOEFL and IELTS exams. Throughout my career, I've helped both native and non-native speakers of English improve their language and critical thinking skills. In tutoring, I take a very customized approac
h and use a variety of tested methods and effective materials to address each student's needs.

I like the way how she organized the classes. Marcelle knows which part of my English language needs to improve. She is very flexible in the timing of the classes. I strongly recommended her for whoever wants to improve and refresh their English language. Honestly, she's the best.

About Isobel C.

I am an English born and educated creative writing, reading and ESL teacher. I teach English to grade school students, college students or adults who need need extra help improving their grades or learning the principals of good reading or writing.
Relaxed one on one tutoring is an excellent way to improve writing and reading skills and I make make my lessons fun and tailor them to each individual student's learning style. Large schoolroom classes make this challenging, so extra tutoring is very beneficial.
I have been tutoring students for more than 25 years and love what I do. Students can take 1-3 lessons a week in 30, 45 or 60 minute sessions.

About Isobel
Hi Students,
My name is Isobel and I am a writing instructor. I have published in England and was voted Poet Laureate of a city in California.
I was born and educated in England and love to write and read and help students who may find some of the lessons in school a little challenging. I can help you get onto the right path so you improve your skills and feel confident. We cover grammar, spelling, punctuation and creative writing and I try to make the learning process fun!
I would love to help you get good grades in writing and reading or, if you are an adult, just encourage you to enjoy writing well. I can guide you through memoir writing which is a very gratifying and wonderful experience as well as providing children, grandchildren and other family members with the story of your life!
I hope you will plan to take a lesson wi
th me soon!
Thank you, Isobel

Listening, Understanding, Enunciation are all important in learning a new language.

About Ivone
I've been teaching online, group classes & one on one for over 7 years. Love to provide guidance & tips to get you speaking Spanish from the very first lessons. Language learning isn't about rushing to become an Intermediate Level Student but getting the basics or foundation of the Language understood & perfected at the Beginner level.
Online classes or One on One whichever you decide that meets your learning needs, you'll be one class closer to conversing in Spanish!
Hasta pronto!

Here, Molly R. shares six songs to avoid... and what to try instead!   With musical theatre auditions, often the toughest part isn't the audition itself, but instead making a decision on what to sing.

How to Read Sheet Music for Piano | The Mental Flip Strategy
As a beginner, learning how to read sheet music for piano is one of the first things you'll work on with your teacher. Read on as Tucson, AZ tutor Blake C. shares his strategy for understanding the relationships between the notes on the page: One of the most difficult things about learning how to read sheet music for the piano, as opposed to most other instruments, is that there is not just a single melody to be played. Piano music requires you to play more the one part at a time. Usually the
Strategies for Sight Singing
It may seem like instrumentalists have it much easier when it comes to sight reading music; by simply pressing a key or a string, the notes are immediately available to them without any additional thought, and all that’s left to them is to work out duration, dynamics, and tempo. Singers, on the other hand, don't have an instrument to rely on. Taking a song previously unknown to you and delivering a reasonably accurate performance the very first run-through isn’t a talent that everybody has.
