UlianaThe role of a teacher is not to help students pass a test, but to nurture a student's critical thinking abilities. I also believe in creating independent students who can adopt strategies for their own academic growth without my direct involvement. I have been teaching Mathematics, English, and Social Studies at charter schools in the Manhattan, New York, area since November of 2017, and truly enjoy helping a student grasp something they have been struggling with. My everyday career is in media, giving me a lot of experience with the finer points of writing. I can also help ESL students and TOEFL Prep. Outside of academics, I enjoy driving, reading, movies, and psychology. Please contact me if you're interested in scheduling a study session!

ShigeruMy name is Shigeru, and I enjoy tutoring students to help them build a better understanding of the Japanese language. I speak Japanese natively, I have 24 years of experience teaching Japanese professionally to students of all levels of ability. I've also published textbooks about the language. In addition to helping students learn Japanese academically, I've also helped those who wanted to learn language for business purposes or for conversation.

MichaelI am a trial lawyer with a bachelor's degree in French from Rutgers University-Newark and a Juris Doctorate in legal studies from Thomas M. Cooley Law School. I can be described as passionate, prepared, persuasive, and positive. I believe all of these qualities are vital to being a great tutor. I am passionate about teaching and tutoring children. I can help with many subjects such as writing, public speaking, essay editing, and English. I would also like to help future lawyers prepare for their bar exam. I believe that I have the academic and life experience necessary to be an effective educator. When I am not tutoring or teaching, I enjoy running marathons and acting.
