Justin "...After two years of settling in, I joined a local non-profit tutoring group. Initially, I helped elementary school students with creative writing projects, and then I moved to general after-school tutoring sessions, where ages ranged from 6-14.

Walter "...I believe that learning to express yourself effectively and increasing your ability to understand and interact with the world around you meaningfully is more important than the skills and strategies used to increase scores on standardized tests, but the skills needed for these tests are not inimical to genuine learning. Not always trying to see things in conventional ways and with conventional results can help you to better appreciate set standards and norms in a new way, both for their flaws and qualities. Learning can be a fun, even pleasant, and certainly an empowering process, but it isn't always so. Learning can also include painful frustration, and you need to be ready and accept that as part of the process. I tutor essay and creative writing, literary reading skills and writing about literature, and test prep for SAT and AP English..."
