Matthew "...It is vital to possess reading comprehension and writing skills. These abilities not only aid in succeeding in school but also assist in professional pursuits outside of the classroom. Think of how important it is to write coherently and comprehend what you read! I love making English fun for students..."
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..."

Christopher "... I have been tutoring at a variety of levels since I was in elementary school, and have discovered that I truly love the opportunity to help others gain a better understanding of whatever subject matter is at hand. Reading and writing are my specialty; words are something I have always found to have great power, and assisting others in expressing their thoughts in nuanced, articulate ways has become a great passion of mine. I try to find a balance between structure and creative thinking when it comes to my tutoring style, and I firmly believe that everyone is capable of achieving great things given the right environment and skill set..."
