Robert "Last year, I worked as an English teacher in Tokyo. There, I cultivated a student-centered teaching style, where I serve as a guide for my students. I absolutely love to teach..."
Elizabeth "... I love helping with test prep; SAT, ISEE, SSAT. My students have increased confidence and scores, and have gained admission to top independent schools and colleges after our time spent in test prep. I love helping students find meaning in their learning. So, you won't be bored..."
Maya "...Before moving to New York, I spent two years teaching Beginning and Intermediate French at Northwestern. I have instructed all levels of students ranging from pre-K to university, including adults, and have been tutoring students individually throughout my teaching career. I continue to take trips to France for research, through which I am able to maintain a close relationship with the language and culture..."
Alexander "...I have taught in France, Africa, and in Boston, and I am especially passionate about language tutoring (French, Latin), although I also love teaching math, writing, and helping students through the college admissions process (including SAT prep). I have a critical-thinking-focused approach to teaching; that is, I focus on helping my students understand the concepts and frameworks underlying their most difficult assignments, and I try to improve their study habits and problem solving strategies. Outside of the realm of teaching, I also love sports and music..."
Lucia "...While at Wellesley, I studied studio art (specifically, oil painting and life drawing), studied French and Italian, and studied abroad in London. I have a long history of tutoring and teaching, ranging from peer-tutoring in college-level astronomy to tutoring third graders in Common Core math. I work very well with all ages: with young children because of my easy going and gentle nature, and with older students because of my patience and commitment to their individual success..."
Isabelle "...I understand how difficult it is to learn a new language; more so, when it is a language that you don’t use all the time. It is why I use different teaching methods in my lessons, incorporating the audible, the visual, and the spoken. When my children were old enough to attend school, I began to teach. We were living in France, and I went to teach English as a second language and mathematics in middle and high schools..."

Zachary "...It's my first love and my gateway to everything from literature to linguistics. I'm a believer that true passion for what you teach is essential to being a great tutor. It's sometimes easy for students to forget what learning means to them in an often stressful and frustrating world of standardized tests and and final exams, but a helpful tutor can really make the difference by presenting the material in a way that is simple and clear and by approaching it with methods that meet each student's needs..."
Sophia "...Prior to my work experience in France, I received a Masters degree in Literary Translation (French to English) from New York University while working as an America Reads and Counts Tutor. As a tutor, I served as a Teacher’s Assistant to a second grade classroom, and it was this experience which inspired me to contribute to the world through teaching. Helping the teacher and students work more efficiently together showed me how important a tutor’s aid can be in the learning process..."

Ilene "...During my junior year at Clark University, I participated in a semester long study abroad program in Segovia, Spain. Between all of my coursework conducted in Spanish and my profound experience living with a Spanish family in Spain, I was able to solidify my command for the language and understanding of the culture. Additionally, I have taught adult, children's and prenatal yoga classes in Spanish..."
