" Working with students one-on-one is great because I get a chance to see what they’re curious and passionate about, and how they personally value the subjects in which they are struggling. A student's motivation is sparked by a connection to their goals and interests, and the confidence that comes with approaching a subject from that inspired perspective leads to real success. I love seeing those breakthrough moments, and I’m proud of being able to help students improve in a wide range of subjects.."

" Throughout my whole life I have spent much of my spare time reading books or writing creatively. My expertise is letters, words, sentences, paragraphs- how to create them, decipher them and think about them. If you have any problems with math, please do not consult me! Anything more advanced than multiplication tables is completely out of my jurisdiction. However, any struggle with the English language is firmly within my ability to remedy! I take a strong academic and social interest in global events, history, psychology, and much more." ...

"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."

" 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.." ...

" In fact, my first creative writing class I took at Middlebury, my professor told me that writing was not my strong suit. I was discouraged. Frustrated, even. But not to the point that I wanted to quit. Rather, I wanted to be better."

"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 ...

" 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!."

"I have teaching experience in English and American Literature, Critical Theory, and Art History. In addition to academic teaching experience, I have also been published and have presented research papers at University-organized conferences. My teaching style takes an interdisciplinary approach, combining traditional historical practices and engaging with it in a contemporary context. I believe when studying art history it is important to recognize context and create a dialogue between the many eras, periods and decades that frame art styles, expressions, politics and movements." ...

" 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. I teach more than just how to answer a question; I teach how to think and approach questions so that students can find their own success. In my free time, I enjoy playing sports, reading, cooking, and traveling.."
