" I would hazard a guess that this illustrates at least part of my love of education and school. Because of this belief I have been tutoring students since I began my undergraduate studies at Ohio State University, and I continued to do so while getting my Masters degree at the London School of Economics. In both of these cases I tutored specific subjects, but it was also with an aim of improving test scores. Additionally, I have also helped others prepare for standardized tests. During the course of my many, many years as a student I have had many brilliant instructors, but not all of them have been great teachers." ...

I have helped a number of students procure scholarship funds, and I take great pride in helping others to achieve their dreams of pursuing college degrees!

" I spent three years after law school in the private law practice industry, but my passion for teaching and academics has led me back to a career in tutoring. As an undergraduate in college, I had the opportunity to tutor underprivileged high school students, which has proven to be one of my most rewarding lifetime experiences. In addition, I have been tutoring students in metro Atlanta since March of 2011.

" Students also cannot help but compare themselves with their peers around them, and often become discouraged when they cannot seem to understand what so many people around them appear to grasp in an instant. This problem of student discouragement is a serious one, because learning starts with motivation; students will not be motivated to learn in an environment where they feel overwhelmed, scared, or unintelligent. That's where tutoring comes in. I've found that the best way for anyone to learn is by meeting with a teacher one-on-one." ...

"In this class, we learned to work one on one with our peers during writing critiques, as well as work as teacher's assistants for a second grade English class. This experience aided me throughout my college years, and inspired me to begin a writing critique for one of Columbia's newspapers once I became editor in chief. Even though I was a tutor myself, I was also a tutee--I am indebted to my tutors that helped me through both the SATs and the GREs. Without them, I would not have managed to do as well as I did on my exams, and thus would not have been able to attend the schools that I did." ...
