"Students I've tutored have gone on to MIT, the University of Michigan, and Pomona. I think the key to doing well on standardized tests and writing great essays is having the information to make clear connections between ideas. When I tutor, I require a certain level of memorization, because I think a strong base of knowledge leads to original thinking. But I don't rely on memorization alone - knowing facts is only one part of a holistic education."

" I've worked as a tutor for many years, including providing essay help to Princeton students as a Writing Center Fellow. Learning any subject requires lots of hard work, but I also think having a tutor should be fun! I know that's a cliche, but I truly believe in developing lasting relationships with each student and developing a rapport. Because there's only one student to help, there's no excuse not to make the lessons engaging and personalized to their interests.
