"I want my students to see my passion for what I teach, and in turn I want to find out what makes them ask more questions and arrive at more answers -- overall, for them to be able to determine where their own passions lie. This could be as elemental as applying their interests to whatever it is they are studying, be it finding literary bits about ancient sport to practice Latin grammar or envisioning the perfect essay in relation to a perfect layer cake. My students have ranged from the pre-K to university levels. For each student, I put a strong emphasis on personalizing their studies to their needs and interests." ...

" I'm a very patient teacher, who believes strongly in understanding the why behind each topic in order to understand how to solve the problems that a student will face as he/she progresses through a class. Problem solving skills are a major emphasis in my teachings, as that can streamline the application of knowledge on test or quiz. I hold a degree in Criminal Justice and am pursuing an additional degree in Computer Science. In my spare time, I'm an avid baseball fan (go Yankees!), movie buff and book worm."

" One of the things I enjoy most about teaching is the knowing that not only can I help my students, but my students help me. I learn from my students each day and I think that has helped me to become a better teacher. I enjoy all of the subjects I teach, it’s hard for me to choose one as my favorite. 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."

"I love tutoring one-on-one because I can get to know students and gear the lessons toward their interests, which helps them learn more quickly, retain new skills better, and enjoy the tutoring sessions more. 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!." ...

" I have always taken a keen interest in teaching, whether it be elementary school math in the classroom, or in a variety of high school subjects through 1-on-1 tutoring, or assisting fellow undergraduate and law school students as a teaching assistant in high level subjects. My goal with each and every student that I teach is to understand why the student may be having issues with a subject, and then by using that knowledge, determine an individualized course of action to achieve the student's potential.
