" During the week, I am a practicing attorney who has taken and passed three bar exams - each on the first attempt. I believe that any student can achieve and that no one style fits everyone. I maintain flexibility and adjust my methodologies for each student that I work with. However, I generally like to keep my sessions casual, focusing on improving the student's confidence and scores, as I have found that some students become discouraged when they struggle. In my spare time I read a wide variety of books, enjoy listening to music, and playing with my three-year-old daughter. When I can find time, I like doing crossword puzzles as well.." ...

"I believe one of my greatest strengths is not only my own ability to write fluidly, but also to help others do the same while still respecting their individual voices. I love to work with students on college essays, other applications, and general writing skills - this past year, one of my students with whom I worked on a college essay was accepted to every school to which he applied, and I work to achieve that goal with all of my students! I'm also experienced in Verbal and Writing test prep, particularly for the SAT, and find great satisfaction in watching my students' scores steadily improve. In short, if your tutoring needs have to do with ...

" It truly does push you to be your best. In my free time, I enjoy exploring the ever-changing NYC landscape, stumbling about the internet learning whatever it has to teach me, studying politics both as an art and a science, as well as my guilty pleasure of watching the NFL and the occasional Newcastle game. As an HIV vaccine researcher for several years, I was taught many obscure facts and techniques. As a specialist in assay development (making up new experiments), I created even more."

"For each student, I put a strong emphasis on personalizing their studies to their needs and interests. My passions as a scholar lie in the humanities -- my two and a half years in the pre-medical program at Fordham notwithstanding -- particularly in American and European history, literature and Latin. In the fall, I aim to apply to graduate school for classical studies, and I anticipate tutoring with Varsity to be very instrumental in getting me back into an academic mode of thinking. I am excited to learn from my students while also imparting some of my excitement for and interest in my various disciplines." ...

"I have worked with eighth-graders preparing for private school entrance exams, have taught Algebra in public school, and I currently teach philosophy at a New Jersey community college.

" What sets me apart is that I get to know my students and understand what motivates them. I make myself available to them at all hours. I spend a lot of time thinking about the best way to explain something and help students organize their thoughts.

In my free time, I enjoy playing sports, reading, cooking, and traveling.."
