" Rather than just telling them the answers, I prefer to guide the student to come up with the best changes to improve their writing. No one can learn how to write when someone just tells you what to say. But I like to help students learn how to best express themselves, so they can continue to write well, long after the tutor leaves. My tutoring strengths are primarily in Writing and English, but I also have a lot of experience with Literature, Psychology, and Test Prep."

"I taught English to students who ranged from preschool children to working adults. Since moving back to the US, I still tutor Mandarin. I strive to make my lessons dynamic and enjoyable. I feel it is important that tutoring sessions are adapted to the student's needs and personality. The more students are engaged in the learning process the easier it is for them to stay motivated and reach their goals. The reason I love teaching languages is because I'm a people person."

"The best compliment a student gave me was "I feel much more confident speaking English now than when we started." That confidence will make the student a lifelong learner and will transcend into other subjects. I am also an experienced learner! I have a degree in biochemistry and Spanish from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. This means I am qualified to teach biology, chemistry, algebra, geometry, and Spanish. I am currently a nursing student at Loyola University Chicago, so anatomy and physiology are my current life.." ...

"Additionally, I was selected to participate in a French studies program in French Canada in 2009. Just a few months ago, I returned to the US from a nearly year-long teaching position at a high school near Dijon, France. I taught French high school students spoken English language and American and British culture. Students were able to make very marked gains in their command of spoken English because of my ability to accommodate a variety of learning styles and make learning relevant to their lives. Also during this time in France, I held a position as a private English language tutor for middle school-aged French children." ...

" 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. That way, they have the tools to solve further difficulties even when I'm not there."

"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. At my core I am a problem solver; I find satisfaction in using teamwork to complete tasks that may not have otherwise been achievable."

" During college, I participated in a tutoring program that allowed me to work with high school students in Nashville. I also served as a mentor throughout the program. Most recently, through AmeriCorps, I tutored sixth graders in the Summer Bridge Program at Gillespie Elementary School.
