" It's hard to say which I enjoy more-- literature or science. I enjoy exploring methods of learning that work best with the student and really value their feedback on my tutoring style.

"I'm in New York studying theater and voice but miss my science classes and students like crazy! I'm particularly strong in biology but also totally comfortable with chemistry, English and writing, social studies/history, and test prep. As a teacher my style is to help students discover the answers on their own, and become more confident in their ability to use critical thinking. When I'm not tutoring you can find me running or playing with my mutt Franklin!."

" I have worked in private tutoring for almost four years with a special focus on critical reading and writing skills and college application essays. My teaching style is laid-back and creative: I work hard to frame the material in a way that is interesting to my students and appeals to their interests, and I base my methods around what works best for them. It is always important to me to speak with my students rather than talking at them, and bringing a sense of humor to the table never hurts!."

"My students have expressed that they appreciate my rigorous, yet patient teaching style. I have high expectations! For standardized exams such as the SAT, test-taking strategy is foremost in what I teach. Problem-solving techniques first, then vocabulary-building and grammar mechanics. Under my tutelage, I have seen students' test scores jump, sometimes by more than 200 points. My writing has been published in various online and print publications and I am a strong writing coach."
