" During graduate school, I taught German 101, 102 and 103. My primary goal for students is to use motivation for learning, meaning that I try to find materials that are motivating as motivation is the the essential ingredient for true learning. As far as language learning goes, my basic approach is to balance input and output: listening/reading and speaking/writing. I look forward to teaching you!."

"A great tutor can see outside the box and be flexible enough to explain the same concept in a variety of ways, depending on the needs of the student. A tutor must be more personable with the student than a classroom teacher, who to a certain degree, must hide behind a teaching persona. Lastly, in addition to speaking with the utmost clarity, a great tutor must have excellent listening skills.."

My background is as a classically trained singer, and I know first-hand the value of seeking the best help to improve one’s skills.

"Students at top high schools like Stuyvesant and Brooklyn Tech are especially engaging to work with, due to the challenging nature of the material and the lively mind of the student.

Under my administration we tracked students' scores and attained the highest average grade increase in the program's history.

" Again, my main subject area is math, but I have a strong background in a wide array of other fields and, having worked two years writing workbooks for the test, am particularly well qualified for tutoring for the SAT. My teaching style is highly customized to the student(s) I'm working with: my main goal is always to make him or her feel as comfortable as possible.
