I have been a Substitute Teacher for the Charles County Public Schools since September 2018. I started working with Grade 1and 2. During the second half of the year, I began to substitute for the 3's, Pre-K, Kindergarten, and Grade 1. It wasn't until the second half of the year, I started to enjoy helping children one on one in the Special Education Program. This is where I could concentrate on one or a small group of students who needed extra help with their classwork. I specialize in Reading, Reading Comprehensive, and Writing up to Grades 2. My students have told me that I am patience, I make learning fun, and I am very creative teaching the children at their learning pace.

Tara was wonderful when working with my boys. She was always on time, never cancelled and was always smiling. She was gentle and guided them through each project. I would highly recommend Tara to anyone who wanted a personal, quality lesson in art.

First lesson was good.

Philippe is an incredible teacher!
He is experienced and works well in the current distance-only training environment.  He's a very personable and engaging guy, which can be quite important when you're spending hours a day with someone. :)
But what I consider to be his best trait is his ability to assess the needs of the student and adapt his approach as needed, not just to work more on the areas where the student may need more practice, but to see what is working for a student and what is not and then to be willing to completely change his pedagogy to fit that student. This pedagogical flexibility is indeed rare to find in a teacher and, to me, this is what makes Philippe truly special.

You won't realize you are learning - challenging and fun!!!!!

I have been working with Phillipe for almost two months. I started with a good command of the langague but needed to improve my fluency for my job. Prior to Phillipe I was completely stressed out with learning French and feeling like I would not succeed. He immediately put all those thoughts to rest, made learning fun, and took the time to understand my goals and how I learn best. He adapted his style to meet them. He made everyday fun and interesting engaging in lively debates and raising my speaking and comprehension levels without me even realizing it. He as a vast library of on-line resources that were great supplements. In two months my fluency increased dramatically, he really took me to the level I need.

Phillipe deserves high praise.

I've used calculus in my career for 35 years, as a mechanical engineer and a computational physicist. I know how to solve problems from several different perspectives, so if a student is struggling with one method, I have a repertoire of other techniques to deploy. I find that students thrive when they are given solid examples of solutions and the content isn't hidden from them. I can help expand a student's advantage with computational tools such as Excel and Matlab to accelerate knowledge and deeper understanding.

It's amazing how our brain can absorb information in different ways. We can be learning something unintentionally. So whichever your circumstances are we should be open to learn or improve our skills every day. Remember, the process of learning never ends.

Hello ! Are you looking for a tutor to guide your learning and answer your questions about your math homework? As a former math student, I earned top grades in all math subjects throughout my elementary, middle, and high school years, including the most difficult subjects such as Calculus and Trigonometry. Although I do not teach those high-level subjects, I have maintained my basic math skills in my everyday activities so I, am confident that I can assist those in remedial learning in the elementary and middle school levels.

"Daniel tutored my teenage son in Algebra and Geometry for over one year. During that time, my son's grades increased and he became more confident with Math, in general. His time with Daniel set him up for success in Algebra 2 this year (11th grade). Daniel was always on time, very polite and courteous with my son! Highly recommend his tutoring service."

He really went above and beyond in helping me to pass my essay exam. Out of all the help, I enlisted, he was the only one that was instrumental in improving my writing which resulted in my passing the exam

"Hiyab is super-duper -- I couldn't be happier. My 11-year-old son is having trouble with distance learning math. My wife and I had a parent-teacher conference and got feedback that “your son needs to show his work”. The kids take pictures of their notebooks and send them back to the teacher. So, when I looked at my son’s notebook it was just a hot mess. There was no organization, the numbers were huge, there were boxes around some work, arrows pointing to answers on the other side of the page. I had no idea where to start to fix his problem.

Hiyab met us online through the Zoom portal and cut straight to the bigger challenge. My son doesn’t know how to organize his homework! Hiyab told him to write his numbers in a smaller size which changed everything -- now there is space on the page to organize his work. He showed my son how to number his homework problems 1), 2), 3). Hiyab gave him a trick to put “/” marks between the steps of his math problems. After my son saw HOW to organize “showing his work”, Hiyab started going through the examples in the workbook which actually teach you how to “show your work”.

I really like our school district. I appreciate our teachers, but they just do not have an hour to sit down with each and every kid to get them on track. It is totally worth it to me to get my son the help he needs from someone like Hiyab -- he is great!"

"I have had several lessons with Jennie Bissell in my home. I often give lectures in academic settings, and I was hoping to improve the quality and fluency of my speech to a level equivalent to top public speakers. Working with Jennie, I made improvements beyond what I could have expected. We worked on a variety of breathing and relaxation techniques used by professional actors. By focusing on producing speech "on voice" the quality and ease of understanding of my speaking increased substantially with immediate benefits. I highly, highly recommend her services for anyone interested in improving their public speaking skills."

With only one more chance and 3 weeks to prepare, I decided  to give Matt a chance. He was very professional, punctual, and made my daughter feel at ease. He provided study materials and gave very helpful instructions and tips. Her  score went up an unbelievable 60 points in 3 weeks! She was able to get the scholarship and is set to start college in 3 weeks. I would recommend him to anyone  and will definitely use him again."
