" I've taught for Kaplan Test Prep (no relation, though my name is Kaplan) and I've designed my own prep courses that draw from a wide variety of methods and teaching styles. Whether tutoring for a specific test, or teaching a subject more generally, I work with students to find a method of preparation and learning that works for them. Besides tutoring and education, I'm interested in music, hiking--both interests that I pursued in Brazil, where I lived for three years. I look forward to hearing from you!."

I believe it is important for an educator to understand how a given student learns in order to best reach that student. No where is this more true than in one-on-one tutoring. I also believe it is an educator's job not only to teach, but to instill a love of learning."
