"I am particularly interested in conflict, crisis, and how related factors and events can influence decisions in an international context. As an undergraduate I was a TA who worked with introductory psychology students as well as students pursuing more specialize courses in neuropsychology and cognitive psychology. I also helped coach a state-qualifying high-school girls cross-country team. In my graduate career I tutored refugee children who had resettled in the United States. I find that because of my academic background I am easily able to relate to others and help them achieve their goals." ...

"D'Angelo is one of my favorites, and is very closely aligned with my perspective on education. I have been afforded many opportunities to learn from passionate teachers, my enthusiastic parents, and other friends who share my interests.

"I was a Small Business Development volunteer, and taught Entrepreneurship and Life Skills courses to high school students. Each year, the students form small groups, create their own businesses and participate in competitions on a local, regional, and national level. One of the things I enjoyed most was meeting with these groups of students outside of the classroom to work on their business plans, practice their presentations, and help them work through any challenges and feel confident about their work and preparation for the competitions. I have a variety of teaching and training experiences in different contexts." ...

" Learning Mandarin here in the States can be a daunting task for any student. Besides the obvious obstacles of differentiating tones and writing characters, the language is infused with many cultural nuances that add to its beauty as well as its complexity. As a native speaker of English myself I know just how difficult learning Mandarin can be. After several extensive trips to China (including 6 months as an exchange student at Xiamen University) I also know how much fun there is to be had, not to mention the plethora of opportunities that come with speaking Mandarin well. The Chinese have a saying: One more friend, one more road." ...

"I've done a lot of work with bilingual (native Spanish-speaking)students. For the past 3 years, I've worked in the educational publishing industry -- in other words, I write text books. This has given me great experience seeing what goes into testing students; I know what they should know at various grade levels, I'm familiar with LOTS of pedagogical techniques (and have seen what works and what doesn't), and I've had a lot of experience "leveling" text and lessongs. That means that I know how to adapt a student's in-school curriculum to match their particular ability level and learning styles." ...

"Authors hadn't written on this scale before, and so they were incredibly inventive (and more than a little strange)--they could mix fantasy, romance, serious religious allegory, political satire, and crude humor, for example, into one very entertaining book. I've been tutoring high school students for the past three years. My goal in tutoring is for my students to learn what questions they need to ask themselves when the going gets tough. If I'm teaching a language, for example, I help my students not only with translating particular sentences, but with forming a method of translation for themselves." ...

"These are the teachers who went above and beyond--meeting with me after school, engaging me in dynamic conversations, challenging me to pursue my dreams, and ultimately developing within me a love of learning. I want to help cultivate this desire for learning in others. I am a good listener, and I recognize that each student is unique. I know I can tailor tutoring sessions to fit the needs of any student."
