"...Writing an essay or dissecting a book really boils down to the art of storytelling -- and I think, no matter your age, we all can appreciate to the transformative power of stories. Not everyone finds their words easily, and some even feel ashamed to take time to express themselves. But I was a ballet dancer for ten years, and I think my rigor, determination, and sense of balance passes on to my students..."

"... A student who remembers formulas easily will do well with step by step instructions, but a student who does not will benefit more from a conceptual understanding and lots of practice. The strategies I use might include using visual aids, hands-on materials, step by step instructions, conceptual explanations, extra practice, and modeling. I also believe building student confidence is one of the most important steps on the path to success. Students must believe they are capable of mastering the work before they will truly be successful..."

"The most important thing I've learned from tutoring is that energy, empathy, and character make a great teacher, far above and beyond mastery of the topics and skills that need teaching. Somewhere down the road I gained a genuine interest in seeing my students succeed- not just at getting the grades they were after, but in gaining the kind of perspective and motivation that helps them do what they really want to do, long after our last session or their last final. It doesn't hurt that I've had a lot of practice with the things I teach, but I am much more proud of my more personal achievements than of my test scores or good grades..."

"... I find that the best approach to interacting with students is to be friendly, open, and patient. We have all struggled in a subject at some point in our lives, and I hate to see students get flustered or embarrassed when they don't understand a concept.

"...This mastery is achieved through all aspects of English - Writing (essay and creative), Reading for Comprehension, Speech, and Drama. In addition to assisting students in these aspects, I am also exceptionally familiar with standardized tests, especially Reading, English, and Science portions.
