"...I have taken, and succeeded in, a broad range of Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) classes, and am familiar with the latest formats, question varieties, and scoring guidelines of these standardized tests, along with the SAT. My teaching philosophy is to go beyond "teaching to the test". Although test-taking skills are crucial for any assessment, I believe the most valuable thing a tutor can do is to enhance and help develop conceptual understanding in our clients..."

"Some of the most effective ways to learn science, math, and Spanish are from people who use these subjects every day: for example, a Spanish speaking scientist. My teaching style is very different to that of a typical classroom because I use concepts from science and math every day and understand how they are most easily applied and explained. I try however possible to enrich the learning students gain in the classroom with practical applications for the scientific world..."

"I’ve always been an honors student (the University of Virginia’s online new publication recently highlighted me as an “amazing grad” of 2013), but that doesn’t mean that certain classes or standardized tests have always come easily to me. I understand the pressure of academic performance and the frustration that comes with “just not getting it.” I want to help! My relaxed, positive attitude will instantly put otherwise discouraged students at ease, and we’ll work through the material in a new way. Given my training in the dramatic arts, I’m the perfect fit for artistically inclined students who might need extra help with math, though I feel confident in my ability to engage students with a variety of interests..."

Whether tutoring for a specific test, or teaching a subject more generally, I work with students to find a method of preparation and learning that works for them..."
