PamWhen I was young, I was briefly considered an at-risk student. I was able to overcome my weaknesses with extra help from others. I went on to attend college and get my teaching degree. I have over eighteen years of experience teaching English Language Arts. It is my strong belief that a student needs to feel powerful and confident to be able to succeed. As a teacher and tutor, it is my duty to equip them with the tools and techniques they will need to become successful life-long learners and productive members of society. I have helped many learners at different levels, including those who were way off of the typical reading levels and those who are considered gifted. In addition to empowering my pupils, I use my past to help them succeed. I tell my students the steps that I personally took to overcome being at-risk. I share my story of overcoming the barriers that were in my way and went on to attend college and earn my teaching degree. I have found that sharing this personal information helps me connect with them. I am able to show them that anything is possible with hard work and determination. I am excited to share my story with your child and help him or her reach their goals

JasonI attended Robert Morris University for my undergraduate degree in social sciences. I'm currently an instructional aide, and I enjoy tutoring government, European history, and US history. I believe students need a comfortable learning environment where they can communicate openly and get the information that they need. This helps students develop learning skills and provides me with constant updates on progress. To succeed in social studies, students need to be able to think analytically and critically, so the environment is extremely important. In my free time, I enjoy music, history, and politics.

FrankI attended California University of Pennsylvania for my master's degree in special education. I also have a leadership degree. I'm certified to teach special education, English, and social studies. I've taught English-language arts, economics, civics, American democracy, US history, and world history and cultures at the high school level. I also enjoy coaching sports. Helping out the community is a big part of my life, and I enjoy tutoring because of the help that I can provide to students individually. I take pride in the progress and improvements my students make. I like to help students become better writers and essayists. I enjoy helping students learn all subjects within English language arts and social studies, and I can also help students prepare for the ACT, PSAT, SAT, and others. In my free time, I enjoy soccer, skiing, golf, and fantasy sports.
