"In high school, my average for the math regents was a 98.67. After that I received an academic scholarship to attend the University of Notre Dame where I really developed a passion for teaching and enlightening students in my free time, despite being a finance major. I decided that instead of teaching/tutoring, I should work for corporate America, and I worked at Goldman Sachs for 3 years. During that process, I realized that my true gift came from incorporating real life examples from the real world with academic lessons, which often help when teaching and fully learning a lesson." ...

" If working on a school or college subject, I will supplement the students' own classroom texts with outside resources such as my own texts, multimedia tools if necessary, and manipulatives to visually explain concepts. These guidelines are also followed for test preparation. I find test anxiety to be a cause for concern for many students and parents, so I like to go over simple breathing and other techniques to combat stress. My past tutoring and teaching experiences include working with elementary-age students in reading, math, and literature arts. I also have experience teaching the Spanish language to children and adults of ...

"I also love when I help a student achieve something he or she thought was beyond their capability. I will never get tired of witnessing those “a-ha!” moments in my students. Helping a student understand a concept or simply soliciting a smile out of him or her is sometimes all the encouragement a teacher needs. I pride myself on having a positive attitude and confront most situations with a smile. I firmly believe that when you change your mindset you can change the world."

" While I can teach other subjects, the majority of my work comes in Latin and other Classical areas, and I've made it sort of a life's mission of mine to instill the same enthusiasm in my students about the ancient world as I have. I firmly believe that learning Latin is as valuable for one's development as a student and a scholar as Math or English Literature. I also understand that learning it, especially at the introductory levels, can occasionally be rather intimidating. I try to make myself as relaxed, fun, and seemingly approachable while I am teaching/tutoring as I can to lessen the intimidation factor of that crazy dead language we're ...
