I learned French from my father, between birth and 4 years of age and Spanish from my aunt, between three and 11. I took French and Spanish all through school, with a double major in French and Spanish in College (Hunter). I received my M.A. in French from Stanford University, my M.A. in Spanish from Stanford University, and my M.A. and Ph.D. in French from Princeton University.
I have received a graduate diploma of National Oil Academy. Also, have numerous certificates of practical seminars, training courses which helped me to improve my professional skills. During my work, I use different methods and techniques for better understanding and high results of my students.

Hello there! My name is Lana Leonard, a student, a teacher, a tutor, an artist, but more specifically a journalism and music major at The New School in downtown New York with various teaching experiences. My lessons to students open up how connected the world is rather than how divided it is. My style is quite simple.
BA in Elementary Education, MA in Theatre Education. Experienced in primary grades in reading, writing and math. One on one helps bring the reading level to grade and more. I use the three modalities of learning: visual, aural, and kinsthetic.
I have been teaching since 2004 and have an Ed.M in TESOL. I have taught in the U.S.A. and abroad. I am fluent in Spanish and am also a published writer. I love teaching and love helping my students reach their goals and take advantage of all the opportunities that speaking English has to offer.
I have been teaching, mostly at the college level, since 1988. I also have taught adult ed. I have tutored many students from high school through graduate school. My major was Accounting, but I have taught and tutored in the Business world also. I have also done some Math tutoring. I want my students to succeed.
My first degree was in education. I love teaching the basics of courses such as Accounting and Business. I have taught Adult Ed, Associate Degree programs and Bachelor Degree programs, and have tutored many students over the years from the Adult Ed, through Master Programs. I have been an adjunct for many colleges in Maine.
I teach all levels of Brazilian Portuguese and Lusophone Cultures, including Portuguese-speaking African countries. My teaching enhances the communicative abilities of the student in all competencies: speaking, listening, reading, and writing. I also use culturally and socially immersive materials and activities where students can experience Portuguese in an authentic context.
I first try to asses the student and see if she/he is nervous and try to understand the reason of her nervousness. When I teach I always give lot of details the way I would want to know it.
Enthusiastic, certified ESL educator, with a Master's in education. I optimize learning with engaging, student-relevant activities by serving the needs of and positively transforming diverse populations through innovative programs.
*** Lesson Details *** Most students want to play the Guitar to play their favorite songs and I'm the same way. Music is something we carry with us in our hearts and minds. Students will learn what they wish to learn and work at a pace that is comfortable to them.
My approach to teaching relies heavily on current research being conducted in the given fields and making sure the students understand its relevance to their lives/work and their chosen areas of study. It far exceeds the idea of “bringing the past alive” and instead examines how each topic continues to impact our daily lives and community.
My teaching methodology is based on the Berlitz system, because I have taught with them for many years. I like to give my students live-practical examples and everything is done in either Spanish or English, depending on the language I am teaching.
I received my BA in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge, UK and my PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Cambridge. During my education I studied a range of sciences including Math, Biology, Chemistry, Genetics, Physiology, Anatomy, Cell Biology and neurobiology. I currently teach students for AP Biology, Chemistry and Psychology 1-to-1.
I teach SAT and ACT prep in classes and 1-to-1. I hsve uniques strategies that employ such that the students can see the recurring patterns in the SAT and ACT question snd answer them with comfort and ease. I work hard to make sure my students have the confidence to tackle the SAT and ACT by working with them initially and then gradually leaving them to show me what they can do independently.
I received both my BA in Natural Sciences and my PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Cambridge, UK. For every student I tutor I devise an individualized learning program which is designed to meet the student's specific needs and learning style. I am a full-time tutor and I devote a lot of energy into ensuring every student I teach reaches their full potential.
I know that all children can learn. A diagnostic test should be given to the child and appropriate data must be gathered after this initial assessment. The results of this data drives the instruction while on-going progress monitoring provides additional data for remediation. Remediation is given until the child has successfully mastered the skill based on the final assessment.
My students are adult professionals who want to improve their spoken and written English. My lessons focus on the specific objectives of each student. As a result, they are interesting and my students become fully engaged in the lesson. My students gain the confidence that they seek with their English. Group rates considered. I have 60 hour Bridge TEFL Certificate.
There is no one approach because everyone learns differently. I like to spend the first session just getting to know you/your child and your strengths and weaknesses.
My method of teaching is based on the Italian vocal school and in particular on the vocal school of the great Italian tenor Enrico Caruso. After the vocal course passed with me, my students work in different musical styles - jazz, rock, opera, pop.
My teaching method is to create a non-judgmental and calm environment in which the students sets the pace of learning. We will approach each topic by establishing a baseline of what you already know and build upon that. That way your foundation will be solid and each further element will build upon the next. I am patient and will explain things in different ways as often as necessary.
I like to keep my lesson adaptable to my students by adding documents or going a theme they like, but I like to work with some workbook from Hachette FLE edition like alter ego for the adults, or Grenadine for the kids.
I prefer the Socratic method of teaching. It helps you find the answers to problems from within yourself, with the teacher helping as a guide and mentor. It doesn't preach, it promotes. My quest is to help the student achieve self realization, and self worth. All one can ask of anyone is to do their best. This always leads to happiness and a sense of pride in one's own abilities.
I am a Harvard-trained biologist who believes that no biological concept is too hard to teach. Basically, you have to be able to "see" it like a video in your head. I can help you get there! ----- What You Can Expect From Me ----- 1. A free consultation to determine if we are a good fit. 2. Careful assessment of what you are lacking from your biology course. 3.
Standardized tests is an endurance sport that requires some content knowledge and expert juggling of mental tasks. I can coach you through not just the necessary knowledge barriers, but also the psychological barriers designed to impede students on the test. ----- What You Can Expect From Me ----- 1. A free consultation to determine if we are a good fit. 2.
I will have an interactive teaching method focused on comprehension and communication of the language, and is very much dependent on the specific needs of each student and their level in school. I like to coincide with what they are learning in class to help them succeed with flying colors.
I believe in building a rapport with my students. This puts them at ease and makes tutoring so much easier, since they aren’t stressed or nervous. I find that I have a lot of similar interests as my students which allows us to bond.
I think I make a great tutor because I am able to connect well with the students. I have many interests which are shared with the students that give us something to talk about. This allows the student to relax, which helps them learn easier. I expect my students to do all of their work, but I am a very laid back person which puts them at ease.
I meet you first, talk to you and assess your specific needs. Then, together, we come up with a specific game plan to take you to the next level.
In order to be sure of the quality of our teachers and their teaching,
