"In serving as an instructional assistant and 1:1 teacher for the past two years, I have occupied a role that lends itself well to working with students as individuals. I firmly believe that education should consist of teachers leading students to success (rather than trying to "lead success to students"), and teaching a solid list of fundamental skills is crucial to accomplishing this goal. My greatest strength as a tutor is my flexibility and familiarity with the content knowledge I teach. I have experience working with students from all over Philadelphia. In addition to having an alternative certification to teach ...

"I take them seriously, keep up with recent research, and am constantly looking for ways to help students interpret material they may be struggling with.

That being the case, my primary focus is Latin tutoring, though my extensive experience with academic writing/reading and the research I have conducted in French enable me to offer help in those areas as well. My concentration in linguistics has often helped me show students ways to connect with language and writing that fit their own ...

"I consider myself a lifelong learner with a passion for education, and I relish being able to help others in their educational endeavors.

"I've always enjoyed being challenged educationally -- I went to a top all-girls private school and graduated from an Ivy League university. Somewhere along the way, I realized that not everyone was enjoying school as much as I did. I've been tutoring for several years, both one on one and in groups, and have developed a true passion for not only helping students perform better in the classroom, but inspiring them to see the value in learning (even the subjects they detest!). I also thoroughly enjoy working with those students who remind me of myself; who are looking for an even greater challenge outside of the classroom and love to tackle new ...
