ValentinaI look forward to tutoring students in the beautiful Italian language. I have completed my master's degree in Linguistics and Web Technology, which I earned from Philipps University in Marburg, Germany. My education focused on applied Computer Science, and English Linguistics. These two actually worked together in developing software for web development, focused on the needs of those who are using the Internet to conduct linguistics research and teach online classes. I have had experience teaching students, beginning with my time at the Northern Caribbean University in Jamaica. That is where I realized that I have a real passion for teaching, and for helping others succeed in their goals. I feel responsible for sharing the knowledge I have been fortunate enough to obtain with others, and it gives me gratification to assist students in their educational journey. I have worked with students in a variety of age groups, and with numerous socio-cultural backgrounds. I have spent time studying research regarding modern teaching methods, along with educational psychology. I have a firm understanding of many techniques and methods for working with students, and can draw on the ones that work best for any individual student. I have an interest in Italian literature.

JiananI'm a teacher, and I enjoy helping students in whatever way I can to make progress in their learning. I love to support my students and provide creative ways to help them better understand subjects, and I am motivated by the pride my students feel when they experience success and reach their goals. I'm comfortable tutoring students in subjects like English, ESL, Mandarin Chinese, and general elementary school subjects. When I have free time, I enjoy learning about cultures, attending international events, and helping others.

EricAfter completing my undergraduate education, I went on to obtain my Master's in Education from the Southern Nazarene University. I have been an educator ever since, and have more than a decade of experience working in both junior and high school settings. I have more than two decades of experience coaching students in athletics and sports. My main teaching experience has been in the social sciences. This is not the limit of my abilities to tutor, however. I am qualified and available to tutor a variety of subjects, including math at many levels, economics, reading and writing, and even general study skills and organization. I am also available to tutor numerous AP level classes. I have gained various skills throughout my years of working with not just students, but also their families, and have demonstrated my ability to guide students to improving and succeeding in subjects they initially found to be very difficult, as well as assist them in preparing for tests. I allow the child to do the work, and remain present to guide and encourage them, which gives them the motivation to learn, and the satisfaction inherent in succeeding at a difficult task. In my free time, I'm very active and enjoy all kinds of sports.
