" The Rimbach Teacher Award is available to all graduating seniors with at least four semesters of German language study. While abroad I chaperoned trips to Berlin, Nuremberg, Pescara, Rome, and the Swiss Alps. I also directed the English theater group, Center Stage in their fall production of Alan Ayckbourn's Man of the Moment, and played ultimate frisbee with the Heidelberg Heidees - a team, which competed at the 2010 World Championships in Prague, Czech Republic. My teaching responsibilities included independently teaching an 8th and 11th grade English class, student teaching a 13th and 5th grade English class, and leading three ...

"I particularly enjoy the grammatical aspects of writing and would be a great asset to a student who is looking to improve their writing skills or is seeking help with college essays. My previous teaching experiences include a summer job serving as a Teacher Assistant at The Boys and Girls Club with children ages 8-10, so I definitely have experience with elementary education. I also was a part of various study groups for rigorous science courses that I took at Princeton, which have taught me great study skills. I think one of the most important things to accomplish in tutoring is to find and cultivate the best way to learn the material. For ...

"Through paying careful attention to how they execute problems and which explanations they prefer, I explore their individual learning style and develop teaching methods that cater to them. This customization has served my students well in my various teaching jobs, from being a Sunday school teaching assistant in middle school to a General Chemistry tutor in high school, and then in college as an Organic Chemistry tutor, teaching assistant, and study group leader.

" 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 example, if you have a student who loves sports but struggles with math, I have a slew of analogies that can help. To me, tutoring is a delicate balance between a hands-on and hands-off approach. Any tutor worth his salt will know not just how to guide students through concepts, but also when to let the student attempt problems without help. As the student learns a concept, the first approach is used more often; once he or she has mastered a subject, the second becomes more important. I specialize in test prep (SAT and ACT), and can provide help in social studies (Government and American History), English (writing, literature, grammar), ...

" I have been tutoring for the past five years with much success in both math and physics. During this time I have found that the most effective method to convey difficult concepts is by actively developing the concepts and supporting them with clear simple examples. I understand the highly demanding schedule many high school students face and the ever-growing demand for improved success in the sciences. I hope to help my students appreciate the beauty of mathematics and physics and inspire further curiosity.."
