" I started tutoring during my Senior year in high school, and have been tutoring on the side ever since. In addition to tutoring on a regular basis, I also have a lot of experience helping out friends with subjects that they have difficulty with. I enjoy solving problems, so helping someone with an extra math problem or with editing their paper is always a welcome activity. In addition to tutoring, I also dream up and start business and social entrepreneurial ventures!."

"I have tutored fourth- and fifth-graders in math and peer-edited countless peers' college essays; I have directed youth sports camps and provided support to severely emotionally disturbed high-schoolers. It may sound trite, but I deeply enjoy the intellectual and interpersonal challenge of the teaching experience. While I expect hard work from a student, I am patient above all and listen before I lecture. I specialize in teaching standardized tests (ACT and SAT I and Subject Tests), math and statistics, writing, French, and economics." ...

" I believe mentoring a student in this manner is just as crucial as teaching the concept itself. This strategy has been very effective in my teaching experiences, and I am certain that it will be effective with anyone who wants to do better in a subject area. My background in Biology began in 2004 and stretches through my time at Loyola University Chicago. I took Biology at an Honors and Advanced Placement level in high school and majored in it in college.
