"...During my time at Yale, I studied Classics and Humanities, served on the Executive Board of the Yale Dramatic Association, and travelled throughout Italy and Greece on a research fellowship. As a tutor, I am committed to helping my students reach their full academic potential. When it comes to test prep, I work carefully with my students to design a personalized program of study that takes advantage of their strengths and addresses their weaknesses, so that on test day they’ll earn their highest possible score. Outside of the SAT/ACT, my areas of strength are in reading, writing, language (Latin), and history. I believe that learning is an inherently enjoyable experience, and while I demand a lot of my students, I make sure that my tutoring sessions are engaging and fun..."

"...Somewhere down the road I gained a genuine interest in seeing my students succeed- not just at getting the grades they were after, but in gaining the kind of perspective and motivation that helps them do what they really want to do, long after our last session or their last final. It doesn't hurt that I've had a lot of practice with the things I teach, but I am much more proud of my more personal achievements than of my test scores or good grades. Some of my students who "hated" reading and writing now devour books (or at least magazines) and churn out masterful essays when they have to..."

"...After college, many employers and prestigious companies place a huge importance on critical thinking skills in their potential candidates. These skills are a necessary pre-requisite to teach new hires how to use sophisticated techniques, methods, and technologies. By helping my students to develop these "thinking" skills, skills which are sometimes neglected in conventional high school education, I help them to get a head start over the competition. In my spare time I love to enjoy the outdoors..."

"...I graduated in May 2013 with a teaching credential in secondary (7th-12th) education from Pima Community College. With my MA, I am most qualified to teach Philosophy. However, most high schools do not offer Philosophy courses, so I worked hard to demonstrate that I am "highly qualified" according to the State of Arizona to teach a wide range of subjects by passing the official subject knowledge tests in English, Social Studies, History, and Middle School General Sciences, Geography, and Political Science/American Government..."

"... First of all, congratulations for taking a big step in furthering your child's education – one-on-one tutoring is one of the most effective ways to improve academic achievement and confidence. Above all else, a good teacher shines light where there was otherwise darkness. Sometimes, a student simply cannot see how to connect theory and practice, sometimes, they don't realize how good they are at something, until someone else points it out. As a full-time classroom teacher, I am passionate about teaching, dedicated to nurturing students so they may reach their full potential. One message I always like to relay with my students: stay positive and focused, and anything is possible..."
