NickI earned my bachelor's degree in Theater Arts from CUNY Hunter College. Having grown up speaking a number of different languages, I understand the struggles faced by students who are not native English speakers in the US. My tutor students in Japanese, and also tutor students learning English as a second language. Not only do I help my tutoring students understand Japanese, but also the culture, as the language and culture cannot really be separated. At the same time, I can help English language learners not only with the language, but with American culture and society, and how to navigate their new environment successfully. I use the Notional Syllabus with a functional approach.

KatherineI have been passionate about writing for as long as I can remember, and I hope to pass this passion on to others. I earned a bachelor's degree in sociology from New York University. I am also studying political science, with the hope to someday attend law school. The subjects I tutor include writing, test prep, social sciences, sociology, English, and more. I grew up in Texas and attended a small private school. During this time, I learned valuable writing, logical thinking, and rhetoric skills because of the classical teachings there. I like anything to do with dogs, reading, practicing yoga, and playing and watching volleyball. We can work as a team to reach your goals.

Bin ZhaoAfter immigrating to the United States, I was exposed to Japanese television. Through these television shows, I gained an interest in Japanese culture. My interest turned into a passion, and I began to study the Japanese language through college courses. After experiencing success in my Japanese coursework, I decided to tutor others in the subject. In addition to tutoring Japanese, I can also teach students high school math, test prep, and business courses. Right now I am a student at CUNY Bernard M Baruch College working towards my bachelor's degree in business administration and marketing. When I am not tutoring or studying, I enjoy making memes and songwriting.
