TheresaI have a Master's Degree in education from California University of Pennsylvania. My specialty is helping students how to write essays. In my opinion, nothing is more frustrating than having ideas and thoughts that you are unable to translate into writing. I help students through every part of the writing process. This includes helping them come up with ideas so they can start their essay, proofreading and revising their essays, and helping them put their essays into the right format. I have experience teaching students at both the high school and middle school levels and I am currently teaching English at the college level. My courses focus on the importance of speaking, writing, interpreting, and reading. My courses cover everything from teaching students basic grammar, to coming up with a proper outline, and eventually creating quality essays. I am available to tutor students in a variety of subjects, including adult literacy, college English, reading, writing, public speaking, English grammar and syntax, and phonics. My goal as a tutor is to ensure that my students feel confident in their work and their ability to speak in front of other people. I achieve this by placing an emphasis on practice and preparation.

SantinoI graduated with honors from the University of Pittsburgh with a bachelor's degree in philosophy. One of the main reasons why I loved studying philosophy was because it allowed me to tackle a number of different subjects from the eyes if a philosopher. During my time as a student, I learned about logic, ethics, and the philosophy of language and math. Additionally, I also take a keen interest in writing, math, and various languages. While I was a final-year student, I helped teach three introductory courses. Not only did this experience help me sharpen my skills as a teacher, it also showed me that I love working as an educator. I especially enjoy working in a one-on-one setting where I'm able to give a student the extra assistance they need to overcome their challenges. One of the reasons why I like tutoring so much is because it gives me the opportunity to customize lessons to suit the individual needs of the pupil. I don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to education. Instead, I think that everyone needs to be engaged and taught in a way that works best for them. When I'm not teaching, I love spending my time reading, writing, and playing sports.
