Damian "...Somewhere down the road I gained a genuine interest in seeing my students succeed- not just at getting the grades they were after, but in gaining the kind of perspective and motivation that helps them do what they really want to do, long after our last session or their last final. It doesn't hurt that I've had a lot of practice with the things I teach, but I am much more proud of my more personal achievements than of my test scores or good grades. Some of my students who "hated" reading and writing now devour books (or at least magazines) and churn out masterful essays when they have to..."
Casey "...To be able to encourage another person's education experience is an amazing thing, and the happiness a student feels when he or she has their "lightbulb moment" is profound. My teaching style is heavily personalized. It is important to establish the student's individual, unique learning style and cater the tutoring experience to his or her needs. Tutoring is a team effort, and my students and I work together to produce results and reach established goals..."

I am experienced as a tutor in Spanish language, and have had much success bringing up my students' grades through personalized assessments and exercises built around their own weaknesses, in addition to those provided by the textbook and general homework help..."
