"I have a critical-thinking-focused approach to teaching; that is, I focus on helping my students understand the concepts and frameworks underlying their most difficult assignments, and I try to improve their study habits and problem solving strategies. Outside of the realm of teaching, I also love sports and music. I was a two sport varsity athlete in college and also have spent three summers coaching tennis. I love playing my guitar and would love to start my own band one day.."

"In all cases, I loved revisiting my favorite academic subjects and finding ways to help adolescents develop a greater understanding of them, but my favorite part was getting to know the students themselves. I started tutoring again here in New York--and began applying to grad school in education--because I had come to miss these joys. Again, my main subject area is math, but I have a strong background in a wide array of other fields and, having worked two years writing workbooks for the test, am particularly well qualified for tutoring for the SAT. My teaching style is highly customized to the student(s) I'm working with: my main goal is ...

"In this respect, my teaching has been enriched by graduate study (M.A., M.Phil, medieval European history), including intensive study of both history and languages, including German, Latin, French and Spanish, which I speak fluently. Furthermore, my teaching has been shaped by many years working as a high-school history / social studies teacher: I have taught global history, and several electives: political philosophy, modern Latin America, strategic thinking and religion. I have also taught test preparation and ESL. This background enables me to provide instructive, substantive lessons, and to understand and draw upon each ...

"When it comes to test prep, I work carefully with my students to design a personalized program of study that takes advantage of their strengths and addresses their weaknesses, so that on test day they’ll earn their highest possible score. Outside of the SAT/ACT, my areas of strength are in reading, writing, language (Latin), and history.

"This could be as elemental as applying their interests to whatever it is they are studying, be it finding literary bits about ancient sport to practice Latin grammar or envisioning the perfect essay in relation to a perfect layer cake. My students have ranged from the pre-K to university levels. For each student, I put a strong emphasis on personalizing their studies to their needs and interests. My passions as a scholar lie in the humanities -- my two and a half years in the pre-medical program at Fordham notwithstanding -- particularly in American and European history, literature and Latin." ...

"My experiences have been uniformly positive and I've found that any student, no matter their previous experience or abilities, is eager to learn and to do well. I believe that it is the role of the teacher to harness these natural energies and put them to good use by making the material more relatable to the student and their own interests. This will only be accomplished if the teacher is both patient and understanding. Besides my interest in math and science my other interests include Latin, French, computer programming, basketball, and Go.." ...
