About MANOS

The happiest moment while tutoring is that moment when my student understands a new concept. Having an IT Diploma on my hands, I trained lots of individuals. In addition to my IT Diploma, I 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 English, Literature, Greek Language, General Computer and MAC Use, Operating Systems for MAC and PC. I also tutor Public Speaking and Communication. 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 Speech fundamentals that will enable you to speak in the future in front of an audience. Be prepared and relaxed and I promise you that speaking in public will no longer be a cause of fear for you. I have been a Leader in Major forensic debate competitions including cross examinations. I represented successfully the LACC District since I earned the first place among other competitors from other Universities. During my University studies, I tutored Computer Science in classmates and I am proud of the clientele that I have so far. I tutor Microsoft Office, System Networking and I am specialized in the use of any recent POS Software that is out there on the market. I am working with Businesses, Individuals, Students, Seniors and I have been an instructor in most of the subjects that are listed in my profile. I have been an Instructor (Computer Training and Educational Software) for a Nursing College for almost two years. My typical student would make huge progress in a short period of time. My policy in life when it comes up to the responsibility of tutoring students is that if the student fails to do well in the class or in the work environment, 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 proper effort to finish assignments or do their homework, I will do anything possible to reverse this but there is still no effort on their end, then I do not think that I am the right tutor for the individual. The goal is to pass together the exams and work as a team together so you can learn and be happy with the outcome as far as the tutoring. It needs hard work to accomplish anything in life. My guidance and help will still be available for any individual even after we end our tutoring sessions. The goal is not just spending time and money with no results. The goal is to succeed together.

My expectation from 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 to provide many different explanations and examples of concepts until I find one that connects with the student. Our sessions can focus on current material as well as working on future assignments, Midterms, Finals. I am tutoring anybody that wants to learn how to use specific programs for MAC or Windows to get hired in a specific job.

I am experienced in Etudes, Canvas, Moodle, Higher Learning and I am knowledgeable about any platforms that are used nowadays for homeschool studying or for taking online courses. I have a Co-Op certification from the LACC District which stands for Cooperative Education. I am also an instructor in a Nursing College and I also teach literacy lessons at Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD).

I wish to provide the best possible experience for my students. I value the integrity of my services, having been a student for most 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 in a session. I offer tutoring at any 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.

ACT English

I received extensive training in tutoring both ACT and SAT test strategies. While I have been trained to tutor all core subjects, tutoring English has always brought me the greatest joy in life. Through my years working as a tutor, I have found that each individual student is different and so to speak there are different ways and methods to instruct and approach students. Punctuation, grammar, usage, and sentence structure are basic elements of the ACT English Tests. I hold a Cambridge English: Proficiency (CPE). One very important second thing for passing successfully the ACT English Tests involve strategy and organization. If we work together, and if you are doing the required homework after hour sessions, I guarantee you the best results possible.

I taught Computer science classes at a private tutoring Center but I have also led SAT-prep classes and instructed students privately in reading, writing, and in preparation for a variety of standardized tests (ACT, SAT, GED).

Adobe Photoshop

I teach Photoshop, Photography, In Design, Illustrator to professionals, art students or amateurs who would like to improve their work or portfolios. I retouched professional pictures for several artists, models especially and I use Photoshop from the first version since the most current one the Adobe Photoshop Cloud version. Except Photoshop I also work with programs that comes along with the Creative Suite.

Photoshop - working by layers, retouching, color correction, creative composition, digital cameras, exposure, shooting, lighting, file formats.
In Design - preparing layouts for catalogues, magazines, books, brochures, flyers, zines.
Illustrator - logo design, posters.

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 in English. 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.

ESL/ESOL

I have ESL certification/license in elementary education and other education subjects. ESL is an additional endorsement for teachers already licensed and certified in a standard content area or more than one. I can best serve multilingual classrooms or individuals.

My students' grades have gotten a lot better, and based on their testimonials the school is not as hard as it used to be after our English Grammar lessons.

Greek

I am from Greece originally. I have been teaching Greek for many years. I teach the Greek that you need with the easiest method that applies to you individually; So if in one lesson you want to practice your reading skills and in the next session you want to practice the Greek grammar, that would be a great plan! I like to tailor my lesson plans to each individual student based on their needs. 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 that it isn't and together we will discover how colorful and descriptive and fun Greek can be!

Microsoft Windows

I started with Windows 3.1 and now I am running the Windows 10 since I want always to run Operating Systems that are up to date. I like working with Microsoft Windows.
