Paisley "...In 2016, I will receive my M.A. in Art and Art Education from Columbia University. Since graduating from Williams, I have been teaching middle school English and high school art in public schools..."
Justine "... I believe that organization is key. I have found that a certain combination of systematic organization and simplification of every detail helps to illuminate the solution. Having a structured and repeatable approach can then be engrained in the thought process through repetition, and improvement will surely follow..."
Ted "... As a teacher/tutor for over 8 years, I have been able to consistently improve on my teaching methodology. Though it took a good amount of time, the end result is my special ability to help every type of student succeed. The secret is creating a unique bond with each and every student..."

Christin "I have a Master of Science degree in Optics and am working on a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, so it's not surprising that my favorite subjects to tutor are Physics and Math! I enjoy helping my clients increase their confidence as they improve their skills. I always make an effort to find applications that are interesting and relevant; I believe that math and science knowledge benefits everyone, even those who aren't pursuing careers in STEM fields. My other interests include in-line skating, reading, music (I play French horn and harp), knitting, and container gardening.."

Michael "...My favorite subject to tutor is Elementary Math because I enjoy getting the opportunity to work with young students whose educational trajectory can be significantly impacted by my help! I also enjoy tutoring the ACT because I like seeing how elated students are when their hard work begins to pay off, and their test scores rise. I believe that individualization of instruction is crucial to academic success because students are able to get targeted feedback on their own strengths and weaknesses, not the entire class's strengths and weaknesses. I also seek to be personally approachable to students because when there is a divide between tutor and tutoree, I do not believe that the student learns as much as they potentially can..."
Beau "...I have tutoring experience from my senior year in high school, when I ran my own test prep and tutoring service for sophomores and juniors. Most of my experience is in SAT and ACT test prep, but I have also done tutoring in the maths and sciences and English composition. While I am a Mechanical Engineering major, I have always had a profound appreciation for great literature and for writing good English, and I would love to pass that along to all of my students..."
