A Few Tutor Qualifications

I love speaking and teaching Spanish and work on my reading, speaking and vocabulary regularly through conversation and email correspondence. I have travelled extensively in Mexico surfing and have been to Costa Rica three times. I also have a minor degree in Spanish from Point Loma Nazarene University. I am not a native speaker but do well with conversational Spanish.
Joseph D.
I have undergraduate and graduate degrees in criminal justice. During my career in forensic accounting, I have worked on many white-collar crime matters (e.g. Ponzi losses). These cases have involved financial forensic investigation techniques. Some of the reports I have prepared were for local law enforcement and even US attorneys.
Jeff N.
I scored a perfect score of 800 on the Reading section of the SAT. I helped several people study for this section of the SAT. I also worked as a tutor in the Writing Center of my high school.
Caroline L.
I have helped many students including my brother and sister in algebra 1-5X.
Mahilet H.
My background in public speaking is rich. From youth experiences in theater, I learned the importance of diction and voice projection, as well as audience engagement. Since then, I have judged speech competitions for children, teens and college students. Through participation in Mercer County Toastmasters, I honed presentation skills which I have used in educational, marketing and sales settings. I have made live and taped presentations to international audiences and the media.In my teaching, I draw from such books as Wyeth’s Essentials of Persuasive Public Speaking, Cohen’s Public Speaking: The Path to Success and from selected speeches representing the best of American rhetoric. My students have participated in New Jersey Orators and other local events involving public speaking, such as Boy Scout speeches and high school debate events.
Susan C.
I have been singing and playing piano/keyboard since the age of 5. I also have 4 young adult choirs of my own that I train and perform with, and I have given piano lessons professionally. I am very proficient and experienced in giving voice lessons.
Victoria C.
I have has C++ computer programming and got an "A" in that class at East Mississippi Community College at Scooba, Mississippi in May of 2007. I can do some programming in that language because I know the basics and can do some simple and moderate programming requests. I am not an expert per se in C++, but know how to break programming problems down to help students find their way actually program themselves. If its some simple rudimentary request in C++ I can do this task, and help students with their homework: help them by not giving them the answer, but help them think it out towards a solution.
Herbert J.
I teach all subjects in first through fourth grade.
Justin S.
Do-Re-Mi is not just a clever song from the Sound of Music, it's teaching you solfege! Because I took many courses in music theory, college choir, and woman's chorale, I had a lot of exposure to and practice with sight-singing. On a basic level, I can teach solfege and recognizing basic intervals, rhythms, and dynamics. On a deeper level, I can help musicians quickly recognize and perform musical patterns necessary for rehearsals and impromptu performances.
Sharon S.
I am an English speaker native to the DC area. I hold a Certification in Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages (CELTA) from the University of Cambridge. I have taught 475 hours of English classes to students at The Family Place, Teaching House, and The Next Step Public Charter School. I have experience working with adults of all ages and levels from a variety of countries and socioeconomic backgrounds. I also speak Spanish, French and Chinese, so I know what it's like to learn a language - what works and what doesn't.
