"Behind every topic, a new world is waiting for every student if we can just make things click. I tutor with gestures and jokes, messy diagrams and clean metaphors. I've always learned by getting the feel of the subject, and that's an experience I hope to share with you or your kids. I'm an undergraduate at Brown University, though I'm currently on leave to work with a non-profit organization here in Chicago. My college search is not yet a distant memory, making me a great resource for college application guidance, especially when it comes to fine-tuning or drafting personal essays." ...

"I'm also certified fluent in both French and Spanish and spent last semester in Paris, France. I'm a fun, engaging teacher with a dynamic personal energy, and one of my greatest strengths is generating enthusiasm in even the most reluctant students. I don't see why grammar lessons can't be games and punctuation worksheets can't make you laugh! I understand how discouraging it can be to struggle with reading or writing at any age, and my personal objective is to give students the tools they need to feel confident and proud of their work. In my spare time, I love reading, running, and spending time with my family.." ...

"I was a teaching assistant there for several Biology classes for over two years, and I've taught students both in a classroom setting and one-on-one. I always try to get students to be inspired by the material they are studying, because I think that is the best way to learn it. If I can get a student genuinely interested in the subject they are studying, then I am sure the better grades and test scores will follow. I am an unashamed Biology nerd, and I love all of Science in general."

I do not simply seek to impart or prepare, but rather to take advantage of the opportunity to form a substantive, intimate bond with individual students and help them to assimilate knowledge and concepts in meaningful ways that resonate with them personally. ."

"News' and Newsweek's lists of top 100 high schools in the nation. In Cincinnati, I worked with Latin students at all levels.
