Natalie ...who 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!

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.

I also have extensive experience with academic and creative writing in English, including essays and research papers.

Vivien ...to impart to my students a sense of discovery and joy in every session because I want them to feel as empowered and inspired by learning as I do. In my spare time, I enjoy practicing yoga, reading literary and philosophical texts, watching movies, keeping multilingual correspondences with friends who live in different countries, and going on long walks in my neighborhood just to admire the gorgeous, mountainous landscape of Los Angeles.... My teaching philosophy is based on the beliefs that 1) learning happens best when there is intellectual curiosity and appreciation for the subject, and 2) Intellectual curiosity comes with a generative recognition of patterns and connections across concepts.
