Robin "...as a financial journalist for Standard & Poor’s. While the job had been a thrilling learning experience, I knew that sitting in front of a computer all day hardly made a positive impact on anyone. However, that experience, combined with my many journalism internships, have qualified me to be the faculty advisor of The View. I am now in my tenth year of teaching, having taught eight years of French and tutored one year of English as a Second Language..."

Maddie "...I have a passion for reading, poetry, and learning. I strive to help students read and analyze for themselves, instead of worrying about finding the "right answer." This helps them learn how to think critically about the world around them so that they become more enlightened, aware, and compassionate people. I seek to help each student get the most out of their learning as well as to prepare for the next step in their education. In my tutoring sessions, I strive to understand how each individual student learns best and to develop personalized teaching strategies..."
Karen "... An alumna of Smith College, I spent several years in Germany and France as a university student (studying art history and French culture). Simply put, I enjoy exploring language—learning the nuances of vocabulary, grammar, and phonetics. And, as I often tell myself, learning a language isn’t hard: children across the world do it..."
Sarah "...I have been tutoring math consistently during the school year for the past two years; my work has encompassed both homework coaching and exam review. So much of grade school math is learning to see connections between concepts and build on earlier work. When I help students with math, I guide them towards making connections and ensure that they understand how concepts are interrelated - the Pythagorean theorem and the distance formula, for instance. I believe that the best way to make sure a student remembers a theorem or formula is to teach them how and why it works..."
