Matthew ...passionate about English (reading comprehension, writing, grammar) since it provides a fundamental skill set that helps students achieve in all academic fields. My tenure as a middle school English teacher, university political science faculty member, and summer school math and English instructor have helped me to see just how interconnected each discipline is.

Natalie ...is passion about personalized education. I studied English and Film, with a lot of everything else thrown in! As someone who's been stuck in classes that didn't do anything for me, I value the fact that everyone learns differently, and that variety and context, though integral to an engaged learning experience, are often lacking in traditional classrooms. I have remote teaching experience, so I'm looking forward to tutoring a wide variety of students online!... My teaching philosophy revolves around the individual. That's why I love one-on-one tutoring - everybody learns differently, and needs different things to help them reach their goals. I believe in taking the time to figure out what each of my students need, and then doing my best to provide that for them!

John I graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in NYC in 2008, the oldest English speaking acting conservatory in the world. In spite of my English background, I do a lot of math and physics tutoring. I'm a huge Red Sox fan and love watching detective shows when I have free time.... Positivity. Always. I believe that if a student is given positive tools and is allowed to understand the material rather than be lectured at, they're more likely to do well in the future.
