Jasmine "Having to learn English at the age of thirteen, I understand the struggle people face when trying to make sense of another language.

Mara "I am a composer and pianist currently living in Tucson, AZ. My experience in teaching both academic and performing arts curricula as a graduate student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst helped me develop a teaching style that focuses on experiential learning and personal communication, asking questions and allowing students to explore new ways of thinking while attempting to facilitate creative and critical approaches to learning. As a former homeschooled student, I have been able to develop strong organizational and independent study skills that I hope to share with my students, and as a musician and improviser I value and encourage creative thinking and curiosity in my approach to teaching and learning.."

Michael "... My teaching philosophy revolves around the idea that the student needs to discover knowledge in order to truly learn it; my job is to guide and advise. My passion is in literary analysis, and along the way, I have found that I enjoy helping students with writing. I teach a very practicable approach to grammar and focus on fluidity and organization. I want my students to write so that a teacher focuses on what is being said, not how it is being said..."
