Frederic ...nothing less than to help them achieve their goals. New concepts and skills, especially academic skills, have always come very easy to me. This enabled me in school to always lend an extra hand to my friends around me and to help them grow and understand school challenges, including how to solve math problems or to develop topic sentences and outlines for essays. I love the process of relaying information to places and people who...

Annette ...to teach my native language of German. I believe that there is a way for every student to understand and learn something even if it seems to be too boring or complicated. While finding the right positive learning style for a student I also think it is critical to practice, practice and practice to master one little step after the other to gain confidence for the next level.

Natalie ...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!

Tom I have a passion for learning and for helping others to learn! Started teaching undergrad courses in 1991...began tutoring in 1999 and received a tutoring award from the University of Pennsylvania. I like to make hard subjects clear and easy to handle!... Usually it's part "get to know you." But then I ask them what is bothering them the most, and we start there. If we have to back up to review things, no problem; I am there to help. I try to remind students I am not their teacher or parent, and I am not judging them at all.
Connie ...I consider myself somewhat of a global citizen, the subjects I’m most passionate about teaching are anything related to words and communication such as English grammar/writing and foreign languages. I have over five years of tutoring experience teaching elementary/junior high students, SAT classes for high school students, college students, working mothers, business executives, and medical professionals who want to improve their oral and written language skills. One of my favorite aspects of private tutoring is...
