During my Masters education, I have continued working part-time in undergraduate admission offices. I have read and evaluated over 1,000 admissions essays written by high school students, interviewed hundreds of college admissions applicants, and participated in numerous Admissions Committee meetings at which admissions decisions were made. I have also taught high school students preparing for the Georgia High School Graduation Test and coordinated the student workers in the Office of Admission at Sarah ...

"I have enjoyed tutoring since I volunteered as a tutor in high school, but I really fell in love with it at Stanford with an organization called WYSE (Women and Youth Supporting Each Other). WYSE is a group that mentors middle school girls in East Palo Alto, and I started off as a mentor and became one of the directors of the organization. I really enjoy helping high school students with test prep, because I remember how stressful it was for me and I like to remind students that regardless of how it may seem, the SATs are not impossible and not the end of the world! My approach is practical and takes some of the anxiety out of test-taking, I also love ...

"I have a love for reading, writing, and the power of the English language, and work to share and instill that same passion within my students. I particularly enjoy helping to fuel a student's own desire and thirst for learning, as well as working to build and strenghten their own confidence and capabilities. While English (essay writing, literature, grammar, theory and rhetoric) is my greatest strength, I have a long history of tutoring various subjects, both on a private basis, with junior and high school students, as well as through the state K-12 school districts, and the No Child Left Behind Act. I have also worked as a substitute ...

"History, Politics, Economics and Government, American Art, Music and Literature as well as French Language and History. I served as a writing tutor for nearly three years while at University in several different subjects including English, history, and the humanities, but was trained to help students improve their writing in nearly any subject. Before graduating from college, I moved to Paris to practice my French speaking and to wander Paris and become acquainted with the city and its culture. I believe that even the subjects most difficult to us can become interesting so long as we find a way to connect to them." ...

"When I enrolled at the University of Virginia, I began volunteering in local elementary school classrooms and after school programs. Discovering a love of sharing the joy of learning with students, I added some classes from the Curry School of Education to my course load. I took classes on technology in the classroom, curriculum development, and teaching theory among others and used the skills I learned here to teach in summer and Saturday enrichment programs. I recently moved to Los Angeles and found myself missing the interaction I had with the students I knew while attending UVA, and I am so excited to meet my future pupils! Nothing can ...

" I started my education at SFSU and truly loved the experience. As I've trained in empowerment courses and child psychology courses, I always make sure to work from a place that increases a student's confidence while making it fun for them to learn. I love tutoring Language Arts, History, K-9 math, Intermediate French, Psychology, and Geology. My clients have ranged from 1st grade students through 12th grade. I previously worked with AACE Upward Bound where I tutored first generation, lower income students."

"I tailor my lessons to your/your child's learning style and I recognize that every person learns in unique ways. I also rely heavily on alternate methods of assessment. I believe that the emotional aspects of learning are just as important as their intellectual counterparts; this means it is my job to help you/your child FEEL that you/they have what it takes to progress. Now down to the details: I can competently tutor you/your child in any subject k-8, though my strengths lie in history, language arts, foreign language, reading disabilities, and ESL." ...
