LaurenI started tutoring as a high school student, and I realized how much I enjoyed it. Since then, I've tutored for various companies, through schools, as a volunteer, and writing and reading centers a colleges and elementary schools, and I've coordinated the tutoring program through a community college. My experiences as a tutor inspired me to seek a masters degree in education emphasizing reading instruction. I now teach reading, English, and other academic skills at a community college, and I've honed my abilities to figure out the learning style and needs of each student that I work with. I love helping students become confident in their abilities, and that motivates me to keep improving my skills as a teacher and tutor. I want my students to not only learn the topic at hand, but to develop a strong base of knowledge, learning skills, and strong communication skills so that they can be successful long-term. I figure out how to approach my students based on their learning style, strengths, needs, and goals. In my free time, I enjoy reading, cooking, doing needlework, going on hikes, camping, and singing.

JanetI love tutoring because it gives me the opportunity to help young people succeed. I have significant experience as a teacher, and I worked with students at every grade level as well as adults. I've also lectured in the classroom and worked individually with students to help them with their specific needs. My work experience spans from China to Taiwan to the United States. I enjoy helping students with English, reading, writing, literature, and test preparation for the SAT, ACT, PSAT, and others. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, going to the theater, playing tennis, volunteering, and needlework.
