Experienced Mathematics Tutor

Avg response < 2 hrs
Need support? My goal is for your kids to be independent. Kids have a much different atmosphere than just 10 or even 5 years ago. They need the truth (hint: it's not easy), and to build good work habits. They need to be 'taught' how to study and how to filter immense amounts of data. They need that push that turns a 1-hour session into and an hour of resetting their minds on how to think and perceive. Math is an incredible tool to help get back to those priceless tools of Reasoning and Sense-Making. That's what I'd like to bring to the table. My TIME is dedicated to developing the chemistry needed to stay focused and to inspire independence in my students. I do not guarantee anything and no tutor should. I want them to think "I don't need Ray, I can do this AND SUCCEED." My rate is $100/hour of Reasoning, Sense-Making, Independence, Convenience, ease of scheduling, communication and peace of mind. *First session is FREE* Hope to hear from you!

Ray has worked with my two middle school and high school daughters in math. He is AMAZING. They have different learning styles and needs and he has been able to assess them, meet them where they are and then explain and help them figure out for themselves the work at hand. He's helped build their confidence and problem solving skills and does it in an easy going and open manner. They look forward to working with him. He is easy to work with, punctual and friendly.

Retired Teacher Will Tutor Elementary And English Language Students, Evenings And Weekends

Avg response < 3 hrs
I am a retired teacher with 35 years of experience. I have two master's degrees and one of those is a reading specialist degree. I also have a degree in early childhood education (preschool - 3rd grade). I have been tutoring elementary students in the North County area of San Diego for the last 13 years. Currently, I have been homeschooling two students for the last 5 months in the mornings. I have afternoons free. I have lived and worked all over the world and have taught English to students, businessmen, housewives, and children of all ages. I also have a certificate in the teaching of English as a second language. I will be glad to send my resume upon request as well as have a personal interview. I am dependable and up-to-date on common core standards. I have rarely been late to any teaching assignment. Thanks very much for your consideration!

Dianne is a lovely, knowledgeable, ethical, and kind person who I had the pleasure to meet in 2008. My daughter had reading and visual spatial difficulties when she was in kinder and Dianne tutored her, cared for her when I was working, for several years until my daughter moved into 3rd grade and had different needs. We have kept in touch and she is a capable, knowledgeable, and kind educator, who also cared for my daughter by playing with her, putting her to bed, feeding her, watching her, etc, when they were not tutoring. We have kept in touch and all three of us still have a positive association. She also cared for my dog and cats at the time. She is ethical, responsible, and respectful. I would have no hesitations in hiring her.

The Tutoring Teacher

Avg response < 2 hrs
Hi! As an experienced teacher, my approach to education has evolved. In working with my students over the years, one thing became crystal clear very quickly: Education is not a one-size fits all endeavor. All students are different and have differing needs, and this is why taking time to get to know them is so important. Their interests and preferences are all clues for me to find ways to create engaging lessons for them. For over 10 years, I have worked with children from early childhood to sixth grade, and there are things to love about each age/stage. I have an M. Ed and experience in public schools, private schools, and special education. Moreover, I have the following certifications: EC-6th, gifted and talented, English as a second language, and a Montessori credential. Teaching new students is always exciting, and I love it when I am able to work with a child one-on-one. If you have any questions or want to know more, please contact me! I would love to hear from you.

My 13 year old son is on the Autism Spectrum and is very private. He works best with one-on-one instead of a classroom full of students. Therefore, we had to UN-enroll him from public schools in his 6th grade year and begin homeschooling him. It was a struggle for about 1-1/2 years until Desiree came into our lives! She first took the time to evaluate him and learn what level he was at in reference to all of his core classes. Desiree then created an appropriate learning level curriculum for my son in all of his core classes (math, science, language arts). My son has made terrific progress in his lessons thanks to Desiree's patience and encouragement, which has given him his confidence back with regards to school. We would be lost without her!
