Sophia "... As a tutor, I served as a Teacher’s Assistant to a second grade classroom, and it was this experience which inspired me to contribute to the world through teaching.

Elizabeth "...My students have increased confidence and scores, and have gained admission to top independent schools and colleges after our time spent in test prep.

That means I will maintain contact with your school teachers and keep parents in the loop to make sure we have covered all that's needed to make my students a success! I have spent years working with national organizations for gifted students and also with students with learning disabilities..."

I have always enjoyed explaining concepts to other people, and I find it works best when I relate the subject to a personal interest of the student. The most rewarding aspect of teaching is watching a student attack a problem in a step-by-step manner and explain the significance of each step..."
Amanda "...In classroom settings, I have worked with students in virtually all grades K-8, and I currently work as a substitute teacher in a grades K-12. As a teacher, and tutor alike, my methods are strongly rooted in evidence practices that not only engage students but also ensure their success. I strongly rely on the use of clear, concise rules and strategies, carefully faded scaffolds, and ample structured practice time which focuses on fluency and mastery of skills. I am also a huge fan of practice games where applicable because there is no reason that useful learning activities cannot also be engaging and fun! As an educator, I believe that it is my duty to meet the needs of all of my students..."
