Ms. Valentina is one of the best tutors I have ever used. She is patient and tailors the course to the student's goals and needs. She continually updates the course materials and pace and scope of the lessons. Just give her one meeting and I am sure that you will like her style.
We hired Valentina to help our sophomore daughter prepare for her AP Euro History exam. Valentina provided great study materials, provided practice tests and chapter summaries, and developed a plan for our daughter to prepare for the exam. We appreciate her efforts very much and recommend her as a tutor for other students.
My 12 year old daughter loves learning French. Valentina is so fun to be around and sings songs and had my daughter conversing in French on day one. I highly recommend Valentine.
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.
