Alexandra ...as a tutor is to create individualized plans to target strengths and weaknesses and foster academic success.

Jessica ...I go over the types of questions that are most likely to show up on the test, and make sure that students are completely comfortable with them. I customize my tutoring plan to each student's strengths and weaknesses, and hopefully by the time we are done the student will have no weaknesses!

Sarah ...language is incredibly dear to my heart. The French language has so much history and rich culture, and it is easy to be inspired by its beauty. In my spare hours I enjoy immersing myself in the worlds of literature, exploring the real world around me, and creating art, food, and poetry.... I believe that at the core of learning, there must be a passion, or at least a tiny spark that promises the possibility of a passion. In teaching, I attempt to find that spark within a student and transform it into a passion, using my own love for the subject as a springboard.

Mimi ...mentoring ever since.

Asta ...kayaking and weightlifting. I also played ice hockey through college and performed as a classical pianist on campus and in Europe. When I'm not feeling so active, I can be found knitting, crocheting, reading, writing, and daydreaming about where I want to travel to next. I'm working on becoming a true Renaissance woman.... As a tutor, I don't spoon feed my students information they learned in class. I try to identify weak areas then ask questions to lead my students to a better understanding.
Evaline ...and future management consultant, I have honed my academic and test-taking skills to a high degree over the years and would be honored to support other students in their journey to achieve their academic goals.
