" I've taught for Kaplan Test Prep (no relation, though my name is Kaplan) and I've designed my own prep courses that draw from a wide variety of methods and teaching styles. Whether tutoring for a specific test, or teaching a subject more generally, I work with students to find a method of preparation and learning that works for them. Besides tutoring and education, I'm interested in music, hiking--both interests that I pursued in Brazil, where I lived for three years. I look forward to hearing from you!."

"I have worked with eighth-graders preparing for private school entrance exams, have taught Algebra in public school, and I currently teach philosophy at a New Jersey community college. I enjoy helping my students learn to solve problems on their own, think for themselves, and learn the strategies to excel at standardized tests. In my free time I play soccer and sing karaoke with friends, volunteer my time with Trenton's Habitat for Humanity, and I'm currently teaching myself French.."

"I particularly enjoy teaching science, writing, and test prep. With test prep I've found that supplemental work on fundamental skills helps students improve their scores much more than working through a test prep book alone. Watching students develop confidence in their abilities and improve their performance makes my tutoring sessions some of the best hours of my week!."

" Math is all around us and I feel it’s important for my students to be aware of that – it doesn’t just happen in a textbook. I want my students to be able to relate math to their lives. When I look back over time with the Social Studies textbook, I feel like I am taking my students on a tour of the world. It’s fascinating to look back in time and see how the world has changed and developed over time."

" I had my problems with my own writing and certainly not, at first, qualified to tutor anyone else in it. In fact, my first creative writing class I took at Middlebury, my professor told me that writing was not my strong suit. I was discouraged. Frustrated, even. But not to the point that I wanted to quit."

"One of my mentor teachers was fond of saying, "Teach the child, not the subject", meaning that the student comes first - before the curriculum, before the test scores, before the tutor. I've learned to incorporate this ideology into my own teaching practice by differentiating instruction for each of my students. I develop a rapport, meet students where they're at, and teach them the literacy and problem solving skills they need to become life-long learners. Once a student knows how to learn, whole new worlds open for them and the actual material is a matter of course.." ...

" Upon graduation I received the Rimbach Teacher Award, which sent me to Rimbach, Germany from 2009-10, where I taught both English and theater. The Rimbach Teacher Award is available to all graduating seniors with at least four semesters of German language study. While abroad I chaperoned trips to Berlin, Nuremberg, Pescara, Rome, and the Swiss Alps.

My teaching ...
