"...I've also lived in Asia for three of the last five years, teaching and studying in mostly India and Southeast Asia. My tutoring/teaching style combines a big-picture, compassionate approach with detail-oriented and focused efficiency. In other words, I motivate my students by helping them apply their lessons to more than just school, while still focusing on the necessary outcomes of improved scores! I most enjoy helping students with their writing skills, basic-intermediate math skills, college planning, and study/organization skills..."

"... In the time I spent there, I mostly worked with friends who felt like they needed help writing papers, personal statements, or simple responses for classes, but in my senior year I got the chance to substitute for one of my previous professors. This sparked my interest in tutoring, and the year after I graduated I tutored student athletes at the university in English, History and Mythology classes. I believe that all students are highly capable, they just need the proper tools to gain the confidence to succeed. Some students simply don't have all the information they need to do something well, but this doesn't mean that they are automatically "bad" at reading or writing papers..."

"Throughout my experiences as I tutor, I have learned that a key factor to success is the establishment of a relationship with the students I work with, because I believe this creates an environment conducive to positive learning experiences. Asking questions is a key aspect of my teaching approach to try to make the student think and truly understand the material. Every person I work with is different, so I enjoy adapting my teaching method to fit with the student's unique style of learning to best help them succeed.."
