"It's so rewarding to see people succeed and I want to help in any way I can. After struggling in high school with essays and papers, I came to love to write and I wrote for the campus newspaper at UCSB. One of my biggest goals as a tutor is to teach students to express themselves clearly in any format. A strong writing ability will make any student stand out. Besides tutoring, I am currently an intern for the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition and I also work for Performance Bike. I plan to attend a graduate program in urban planning, and I am passionate about sustainable communities and quality of life.." ...

"My main philosophy when it comes to tutoring is to put myself in the students’ shoes and figure out what aspects of the material they are struggling with. While I am there to help students so they feel more comfortable with the material, it is important to me that they arrive at the answer themselves so that they truly understand the concepts. As such, I do my best to guide students by asking them questions to lead them in the right direction but still make sure that they understand how they arrived at the best answer. In my free time, I love going to movies, reading, and traveling." ...

"For children, I realize that a strict, but also fun and laid back atmosphere makes them most receptive to learning! As for people around my age group and teens, I find a way to find what interests them and connect the material to that. In this way, I effectively help the people I tutor with whatever they need. I also make it a point to help them set goals for themselves, both academically and in life. Other than that, I love to dance, sing, write and I am extremely outgoing."

"(C'est comme ça, ne c'est pas?) In Paris, I worked as a French and English tutor, sharing my love for language, literature, culture and grammar with all of my students. I worked in French public schools as well as private institutions, and taught students aged 7-70. Now in my home state of California, I have continued to tutor, helping students to improve their SAT II scores, prepare for exams in school, and work on college essays and school assignments. I have helped students who have difficulty retaining material or focusing on homework and studying, and who lack organizational skills." ...
