" I find that I am continuously learning from those I instruct. My educational philosophy is simple: Keep them interested and make it relevant, and they will learn. Having taught both in the Hawai?i State Department of Education as well as in private school and community settings, I also bring a broad spectrum and educational insight to the issues specific to these specialized populations, the challenges they often represent, and have often been tasked with creating curricula that is appropriate and effective in addressing each student's individual needs and learning objectives, including finding innovative ways in which to teach ...

"Tutoring students can be very simple and sometimes very complicated, but I always look for ways to make analogies to things students feel more comfortable with, so it doesn't seem like I'm speaking a foreign language to them. I get a personal sense of satisfaction when someone stops and goes, "oh, I've never thought of it that way before - now it all makes sense." In addition, often times I feel the education system here is misunderstood and students spend too much time memorizing "steps" to a subject rather than learning it, and inevitably end up failing when they are required to utilize the knowledge in future more advanced work. In my ...

"I can help students with essays, personal statements, applications, grammar, verbal and writing standardized tests, and Italian grammar and conversation. As a tutor, I’ve learned how to adapt to different learning styles and individuals. I personalize my tutoring sessions by listening to what students want help with, gauging their needs based on their writing or language ability, and understanding their teachers’ (or exams’) expectations. When I tutor, I enjoy being able to teach students as I assist them with their writing and language." ...

"Currently, I am working as an after school teacher at C.C.B. School for third grade English, Math, and Reading & Essay. Although they may get loud at times, their sensitive, funny and quirky ways have stolen my heart and I am not contemplating going into the teaching profession as an elementary school teacher. However, due to the large class size, it is difficult for me to give all my students one-on-one attention."

" The funny part is that while I always enjoyed writing and had a passion for it, I was never very good. 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."
