Award-Winning Reading Tutors in Vineland , NJ
Jan "...My methods have been developed through my own experiences in the classroom and through observation of effective educators. I believe that a strong focus should be placed on reading comprehension and comparative analysis, for I firmly believe that students will understand the subject matter better and have a stronger sense for context of what they are studying if it is relayed to them in the proper framework. I want students to be able to explain the events instead of merely reading and repeating what is in their textbooks. I would describe my teaching style as very communicative, calm, and friendly, all while achieving great results from my students..."

Katherine "... Prior to my experience tutoring in Philadelphia, I ran an online writing program teaching essential writing skills to elementary school students and served as an Algebra I instructor at a local community center. I enjoy tutoring math up to Algebra 2, SAT Math, and editing essays (including college essays) because helping students build math foundations that will help them for the rest of their life is rewarding and I greatly enjoy editing essays! I have a very flexible tutoring style - I am approachable and willing to answer any questions related to the material. Hopefully, I can explain things as simply as possible so they stick. Outside of school, I enjoy piano, dancing, visiting museums, art, and discovering new foods and restaurants..."
Anh "...I have worked with a wide range of students from Pre-K to college level to adult learners. I strive to demonstrate and teach concepts to my students from various points of view and get excited when students are able to grasp the material better! My favorite subject to tutor is math! I have always had a love for math and grew up doing math problems from the age of 3. I understand that many individuals struggle with math but I find the concepts in math to be exciting and challenging at the same time. As a tutor, I believe in a “teach back” method where students not only learn the material and concepts but are able to teach it back to me..."
Christie "... Over the past twenty years, I have learned that different people learn in different ways. It has been my goal to identify the multitude of ways in which I can help people learn. I have a broad education and background and am qualified to tutor in many and varied subjects. I am a licensed attorney as well as a certified teacher, an interesting but very useful combination..."
Amy "I am a PhD student at the University of Toronto at the Centre for Medieval Studies and a Teaching Assistant in the English Department. As a Teaching Assistant, I conduct discussion based tutorials, lecture on thesis development and argumentation, mentor students on paper writing and study skills during office hours, and constructively comment on close reading exercises and essays. I am advanced in both Classical and Medieval languages, and have extensive experience tutoring Latin at the grade and high school levels—I received my BA in Classics and in Writing Seminars from Johns Hopkins University, continued to study Greek and Latin in the University of Pennsylvania's Post-Baccalaureate Classical Studies Program, and then acquired Medieval Latin during my MA at the Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto. When not busy with academics, I fence on the varsity team, practice yoga, write poetry, and travel. During my summers I teach (art intensives, fencing, science, and more) at summer camps to groups of varying ages and ability levels. I am not only uniquely qualified academically, but also adaptable, fun, and invested in my students’ successes!."

Jacob "...Since then, I've enjoyed helping students learn in a number of different environments: from teaching the GED to service-work union members in Center City, to serving an at-risk population with English support in North Philadelphia. For all of my nerdy interests, I've been told I'm a very laid-back character. I value kindness and open communication between pupil and tutor. I want you to help you learn, not to be your drill sergeant! That being said, I do have high expectations for my students, because you should hold yourself to high standards if you want to improve your skills..."

As a PhD candidate and Teaching Assistant, I will bring professionalism, excellent study skills, and strong experience in pedagogy to the job..."
