Award-Winning English Tutors in Dallas, TX
Rohini "...Prior to each session, I met with the professor to discuss methods I would implement in order to promote the success of fellow peers. Because I grew up with a brother who has a significant learning disability, teaching is something that I've come to value on a personal level. Throughout my brother's school years, I assisted him with assignments as well as extra-curricular activities so that he could gain enrichment to the best of his ability..."
Jackie "...This type of reading and writing can be considered a dying art, but in my opinion once a student learns those skills, it's even more impressive. I spent a great deal of time in my educational career reading many genres of literature and editing my peers essays (from thesis papers to fictional stories), along with creating presentations. Whether it is fiction, poetry, history, or technical, it is important to find your style within the proper format. This enables a student's mind to add their special spark needed in a methodically formatted, carefully thought out paper (or presentation). It may seem like writing and reading is all I do (and while during college it sure seemed like it), I do have a life outside of education..."
Rachel "I am a writer and editor with ten years of experience as a journalist working in newspapers and magazines. My background also includes a few stints teaching English and Journalism to high school and community college students. I want to use my experience as an editor and teacher to help your student become a better writer, whether to study for an exam or craft essays for college applications or English classes.."

Michael "...I knew at a very young age that I would want a career and life centered in the complexity and beauty of languages. Languages are my passion and I am constantly driven to discover new words, slang terminology, and expressions as they are relevant to specific formal and social situations. My dream career is to work as a translator/interpreter at the United Nations one day and I believe that becoming a Varsity Tutor will give me solid skills and training to achieve that goal..."
Raymond "...After I graduated, I taught ESL in a bilingual elementary school in Spain and tutored adults preparing for English exams. Most recently, I spent one year teaching in a private English academy in South Korea, and I have just recently moved back to Texas. I love being a tutor because it allows me to give personal attention to and completely focus on a single student, which traditional classroom teaching often does not..."
Andrew "...While I offer tutoring in a broad range of subjects from foreign languages to grammar and writing to math and science, I find Physics to be the most enjoyable subject to teach. I see Physics as the science that allows all the other sciences to occur, and I find it helpful to use Physics demonstrations when studying the subject. When it comes to tutoring, I believe that whoever is doing the talking is doing the learning, so my students will be doing the leg work when it comes to their learning..."
Brittany "My goal is to enrich the lives of students through a type of education that is both accessible and engaging, and to offer support and encouragement to students (and parents) in the areas of study skills and time management. I have a B.A. in English from SMU where I graduated with Honors, and completed over 45 hours of natural sciences in the pre-medical program. I have worked closely with learning specialists and others to enhance my educational strategies and techniques, as well as my time management and organizational skills..."
Kewanta "... It is important to present information in the best way that students learn. Every learner has different modes of learning and has a propensity to certain multiple intelligences. It is the responsibility of the educator to expose the learner to as many modes and MIs as possible to guide the student towards mastery of content..."
Ronda "I am a graduate of Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. Currently, I hold a State of Texas Certification in EC-6 and have been working as an elementary school teacher. My experience as a classroom teacher and a former instructional assistant has adequately prepared me with the necessary skills to tutor students from kindergarten through fifth grade..."
Demia "...I worked as a tutor at a private school where my primary focus dealt with reading, math and writing. Recently, I taught developmental writing at Eastfield College. My teaching and tutoring experience has empowered me to teach a range of subjects..."
