Annie ...These are the things that I feel are most rewarding about teaching, and I always strive to reach that deep level of understanding with every student. Though some tutoring companies use a hardwired approach to taking tests, I feel that it's better to work with strategies that a student already is comfortable with. I customize every study plan to ensure that every one of my students can feel their most confident when it counts.... I like to go over questions with my students together if they don't feel confident with the material at first. When I feel like we've seen a variety of problems, I have them start to work on their own and I support them with guidance when they get stuck.

Jim ...tutoring is the unique opportunity that the one-on-one setting provides to ensure that you or your student really masters the content in the lesson in all four aspects of language learning (Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing). In addition to helping you achieve your course objectives, I am most interested in having students take risks and show motivation in their own language learning.
