" I perfectly understand those demands put on students.

I am fluent in French and also excel at teaching any level of English and math (until calculus)."

"I have tutored students from 4th grade to seniors in college and enjoy them all. I especially love tutoring non-math types who think they will never get it! It is a great thrill to watch a student's confidence build and hear that wonderful sigh of relief when they finally 'get it'! I like to have fun in my sessions and I am careful to study my student's learning style. Once we tap into the student's natural strengths, the growth is exponential and the possibilities endless! My hobbies include singing/songwriting, playing piano, journaling, and dancing with my wonderful husband. I have 3 great sons ages 8, 5, and 2 years old." ...

"I was born in eastern Pennsylvania, grew up near Columbus, Ohio, and lived in Albania for four years during high school. I visited Kenya and Bulgaria this past winter -- my 26th and 27th countries! I joined Varsity Tutors mainly to help students with entrance exams (SAT, SSAT, ISEE, PSAT). I personally improved my score by 250 points in just two sections with a little personal study. I believe strongly that anyone who learns the structure, nuances, focuses, and limits of the SAT can not only improve their score but earn perfect scores like I did on the creative reading and writing multiple-choice sections." ...

" I specialize in test prep, and assisting students in improving their writing skills. I also work with students in history and general homework help. I am a published writer, with articles in national and local publications and Yahoo! Finance. I wrote about legal and financial issues and discovered that I really enjoy the law - so I moved to Williamsburg, Virginia for three years and studied at the College of William & Mary, the country's oldest law school. During the week, I am a practicing attorney who has taken and passed three bar exams - each on the first attempt. I believe that any student can achieve and that no one style fits everyone." ...

"It goes without saying that in order to excel in these exams, the student must possess a solid foundation in Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus. But first and foremost, it is important that each student identifies the reason that he or she is studying for. Once that goal is vividly envisioned by the student, he or she will find enjoyment and satisfaction in understanding and applying new concepts as the student progresses towards his or her goal one step at a time. After we gain some momentum, it is simply a matter of time before the student masters each mathematical concept. I teach and study math with great passion, and I ...
