" My students have ranged from the pre-K to university levels. 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 believe building a solid foundation of the basics allows the sciences to become fun and exciting to learn at many levels. Since high school, I've been personally tutoring my friends and peers. In my senior year of high school, I was granted early acceptance to the VCU School of Medicine.

" I believe that the children and families with whom I have worked would describe me as a patient, creative, and dedicated instructor, one who endeavors to narrowly tailor her teaching methods to suit the needs of each individual student. I truly love working with children and hope to someday enter a career in education, whether as a classroom teacher or more indirectly, by working to affect educational policy.

In a word, his teaching philosophy is one of 'Responsibility' -- that every student is mature, talented, and responsible enough to succeed (even if they don't know it!). Funny, a little sarcastic, and energetic, he can both inspire students... and calm them down when things just get a little too crazy.." ...

"In the fall of 2012 I began my MFA in Writing with a concentration in non-fiction at Columbia. My extensive coursework in English and Creative Writing has given me a great deal of experience in workshop-based classes, and has made me a careful and skilled editor. 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 ...
