About MANOS

The happiest moment while tutoring is that moment when my student understands a new concept. As a previous owner of 2 Computer Stores and by having an IT Diploma on my hands I trained lots of individuals. I also have a BA in Communication Studies, a Degree in Acting for Film and a Degree in Theater of Arts. My personal goal is to help students to understand complex concepts while instilling a love of learning. I specialize in tutoring computer science and other subjects such as Public Speaking and more. During my University studies, I tutored Computer Science in classmates, and also tutored many clients so far. I tutored MS Office, networking solutions and POS Software and one-on-one General Computer Training for a private Nursing College for about a year. My typical student would make huge progress in a short period of time. My policy in life when it comes up to this responsibility of tutoring students is that if the student fails to do great in the class, work or anywhere that he has to apply what he has learned, then the Tutor that was assigned to help the student has just failed as well. I also have another rule in life. When I see that students do not give the effort to finish assignments or do their homework, I will do anything possible to reverse this but if there is still no effort from them, then I do not think that I am the right tutor for the particular student. The goal is to pass together the exams or to work on solutions and learn together. In other words, I don’t give grades. You earn them with hard work, effort and my guidance and help. The goal is not just spending time and money with no results. The goal is to succeed together.
My expectation of my students is that they attempt all homework questions prior to our sessions so that we start by going over the concepts that were difficult for them. I am adept at giving many different explanations and examples of concepts until I find one that connects with my student. Often there are concepts from previous lessons that can be caught up on in the first couple sessions and future sessions can focus on current material as well as preparing ahead so that the student can make the most of the time spent in class. I tutor also eldest people that need training in Computer Usage, MS Office, Internet, Technical Issues and Solutions, Computer Hardware Assembly and many other things. I am tutoring anybody that wants to learn how to use specific programs in Mac or Windows in order to get hired in a specific job.
I wish to provide the best possible experience for my students. I value the integrity of my services, having been a student for the majority of my life; I understand that life can be hectic. I appreciate a 12-hour cancellation notice and offer rescheduling of appointments. I am easy to get a hold of and respond quickly to emails, usually within an hour if I am not currently in a session. I offer tutoring at a location of the student's choice.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or to set up an appointment!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I have been a creative coach for more than eight years in Greece and in the U.S CA Los Angeles at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. Lessons can be tailored to suit your personal interest and project.
I studied Photography. I also created several covers for Movies that have been released and are listed in IMDB.

Computer Science

I am working as a main IT Technician with several Colleges providing them exceptional customer service with their networking needs. Weather you are in the early stages of learning how to use computer I can teach you how to use any computer or Mac and any software that you need to work on. I have studied IT technology, I am a certified technician and my references are available to you at any time that you request it.

English

I have at least ten years experience of teaching and/or tutoring one-on-one. As a public speaker, I promote self-esteem and confidence! I am reliable and will find out what motivates you to succeed and do your best at school or work environment. As an English tutor, I incorporate an individual approach to accommodate the desired learning style. English is one of the most important academic subjects because it is essential to have good reading, comprehension, and writing skills since all other subjects require these fundamentals.

Film

I have been directing films since 2009 and I worked several years in production, post-production, direction and techniques for documentary, short and feature films. My first short film was screened at Warner Bros Studios in 2008. Since then I have been a part of several films as a Union member. I have been teaching since 2012.

In addition to all the computer training provided by me, I can also provide training regarding to the general computer maintenance and virus removal issues.
Learn the skills to use your computer with confidence with me.

Greek

I'm from Greece originally. I have been teaching Greek online for three years.
I teach the Greek that you need; so if one lesson you want to practice your reading skills and the next you want some grammar, that's absolutely fine with me! I like to tailor my lesson plans to every individual student, no two lessons will ever be the same.
I believe that if the lesson has specific relevance to you, it will be easier for you to learn and more importantly it will be FUN. Greek can seem complicated, but I promise you it isn't and together we will discover how colorful and descriptive and fun Greek can be!

Homeschool

I have experience on Etudes, Canvas, Moodle, Higher Learning (and more) and all online Educational programs that are used nowadays for homeschool studying or taking online classes. Also, I have Co-Op certification from the Lacc District witch stands for Cooperative Education.

Macintosh

I have superior knowledge regarding hardware repairs, networking, hard drive diagnostics, etc. for Macintosh. I have full-time experience coaching students one-on-one for over a decade.

Microsoft PowerPoint

As a Microsoft PowerPoint tutor, I will track student progress through detailed session reports which will be available to you at the end of each tutoring session. I rather to get a more detailed understanding of what the student is struggling with so I can be of service as far as the Microsoft Powerpoint presentation that you wish to create.

Microsoft Windows

I started with the Windows 3.1 and now I am running the Windows 10 since I want to be up to date always. I also like working with Mac. In my opinion you have to know all the opportunities that an O.S gives you instead of just using the basics. Most of the people do not know how many things they can do with the O.S that their system is running.

Microsoft Word

I am an expert using Microsoft Office 2016 applications: Word, PowerPoint, with more than 15 years of experience using Office, in the areas of data analysis, graphing, and report automation.

Networking (Computer)

I worked with many companies networking their computers and I worked with individuals at the same time. I also networked colleges such as the Angeles College for Registered Nurses located at Wilshire blvd. Networking properly multiple computers is very important because usually networks are running by busy companies or individuals and that being said there is no space for any mistake in the network.

Proofreading

As a proofreader, I perform reliable services for students and writers in student essays, theses, dissertations, research papers and articles intended for professional and scholarly periodicals; fiction (novels, plays, short stories) and articles intended for general and recreational periodicals; teaching texts.

Public Speaking

I am here to help with the Fear of Public Speaking. Whether it is a formal, family or job oriented event, be prepared to speak your mind using clear and concise language.Your speech will be well organized and spoken with confidence. Learn the Basic Speech fundamentals that will enable you to speak in the future for many occasions. Be prepared and relaxed, speaking in public will no longer be a cause of fear for you. I have been a member of the Forensics Debating Team. I represented successfully Lacc since I got the 1st place among other universities.

Reading

I enjoy tutoring a variety of subjects, including reading and this is one of my favorite subjects.

SAT Writing

As a tutor, I pride myself on having a sharp ability to key into what each individual student needs. I will make the SAT fun and manageable for my students, so that they can get the highest possible score. I studied IT Science I am also a graduate in Communication Studies. While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about English, Literature, and Writing. In my experience helping students prepare for Standardized Tests, we always seem to work as a team and that is the reason that my students do very well in SAT Writing.

I am an acting coach in Los Angeles with a degree in film from NYFA and a degree in Theater Academy of Lacc. I give private acting lessons, group acting classes, and industry coaching to beginners, professionals, children, and adults. My one-on-one coaching sessions are great if you are just starting out, preparing for an audition, or want to fine-tune your skills. My acting classes are always small and give you an intimate opportunity to work with and learn from other talented actors. My goal is to give you the personal attention, acting techniques and career guidance that you need to reach your full potential as an actor. The method I use to teach is Meisner.

TOEFL

I teach TOEFL and my goal is for all the students to reach their goal TOEFL score. I do TOEFL preparation and I will work with many students based on their particular needs. If you need a high TOEFL score for graduate school, then I believe that I would be a great choice for you.

Video Production

I started by helping out producers to edit footage usually the rough cut before the final editing and finally I became a professional in video production, editing so far more than 100 projects. I am skilled in video editing with Final Cut Pro, various cameras, all things post production, Live television production and sound design. 7 Years previous experience and a second career for me and an opportunity to help someone along the way who would like my experience. I am very experienced in Final Cut but other programs as well.

I also blog on topics relating to web design, small business, freelancing and work-life balance.

Writing
