" Whatever is needed, be it micro (grammar or mechanics), macro (essay editing and creative writing), or test prep, I can help students of any age become better readers, writers, and test-takers. This leads to not only short-term perks like better grades and increased test comprehension, but long-term perks such as complete confidence in an increasingly digital world. I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with an English degree in 2008. When I'm not a teacher, I'm a copywriter, reader, sports watcher, and dog walker.." ...

"I tutor multiple levels of math, ACT and SAT prep in Math and English, and Spanish. My philosophy as a tutor is that students know more than they think they do. I like to guide my students through solving problems by using their prior knowledge and experience, and asking questions so that they can participate as much as I do. My favorite thing about tutoring is getting to know my students on an individual basis, and figuring out how they learn best."

" I've been tutoring high school students for the past three years. My goal in tutoring is for my students to learn what questions they need to ask themselves when the going gets tough. If I'm teaching a language, for example, I help my students not only with translating particular sentences, but with forming a method of translation for themselves. That way, they have the tools to solve further difficulties even when I'm not there."

"Over the course of my Junior and Senior years at Messiah I developed several great friendships and had countless conversations through which I helped younger players with the trials encountered by college student-athletes. Additionally, I have experience in a supervisory role at a mosquito control company training new employees and assisting veteran employees to improve their productivity.
