My approach to tutoring is strictly peer-to-peer, so fear not being lectured or told what to do. However, I will push you to realize your full potential, and once that train starts rolling, there will be no stopping you!."

" Using your own thoughts as a starting point, we will go through a series of diagnostic questions to quantify your proficiency in the course. With these two data points, we can begin to construct a personalized instruction schedule which will be tailored to satisfy your own goals, and to focus on problem areas revealed from the diagnostic questions. I have applied this own methodology to my testing for years, and have had great success. I truly believe that we can work together to achieve that same success for you!."

"I believe it is important for an educator to understand how a given student learns in order to best reach that student. No where is this more true than in one-on-one tutoring. I also believe it is an educator's job not only to teach, but to instill a love of learning. For this reason, I think I may be able to reach struggling students who have had less success with other teachers."

" My specialties are English, the social sciences, and test prep (I especially enjoy the LSAT - logic games can be lots of fun!). Pattern recognition is the key to any standardized test; figuring out the pattern is all a part of the fun. I also enjoy working with students on reading and essay writing, and can offer the eye of an editor who has worked with two authors on early drafts of published books. I look forward to helping you reach your educational goals!."

"When I'm not tutoring or working on my dissertation, I do some freelance writing. It's a cliche to say that my writing informs my teaching while my teaching improves my writing, but it's also true: the constant effort to improve my own work helps me to understand what my students are going through, while my work as a teacher and tutor gives me a fresh perspective on my writing. I always stress that writing is rewriting. One of my happiest moments as a teacher was when one of my students won the UC Berkeley English Department's annual Essay Prize last spring with a paper I helped her to revise." ...

"I can work with students to help them master the material for a particular topic or to construct a comprehensive program for enrichment throughout the course. While earning my bachelor’s degree at The University of Chicago, I studied both the biological sciences and the historical context of large-scale research projects in biology (as an example, the Human Genome Project).
