" As a logically-minded graduate of Georgetown University, I love to see the bright smile of a student who has just realized that he or she has the skills to complete a problem. To me, it is very important for a tutor to work with the student until the student can complete every problem on their own. This is my tutoring philosophy and I have applied it successfully for over a year of private tutoring. I have also worked extensively with students for whom English can be an obstacle: both in Italy teaching English, and here teaching math to immigrant children." ...

" I have worked with students at many different ability levels and with a variety of special needs in reading, writing, math, science, social studies, organization and social-emotional skills. I have taught students in a whole class format, in small groups, and one on one. I am able to scaffold material at various levels and tailor lessons to meet individual needs. Before I started teaching full time, I did a great deal of tutoring, and I also worked as an assistant teacher at a pre-school. I love teaching and working with children and teenagers." ...

" Ever since I have been tutoring Math, Chemistry and standardized tests. Tutoring is a pleasure to me, I particularly enjoy helping students reach that 'aha' moment, where they gain an insight into a particular concept. As of January 2012 I have tutored more than 20 students for a total of nearly 500 hours. In the future I will be attending graduate school in Chemistry, and will later continue as an educator, hopefully on the university level.."

" I am a former New York City public school classroom teacher, and have worked as an instructor for several summers at the Hofstra University Summer Camps, teaching computer applications. In addition, I have been a supplemental education provider, an SAT proctor and prep class teacher, and currently teach chess to first- through fifth-graders. I enjoy words, word games, reading, mathematics, discovering new things, staying in shape, and sharing what I have learned with others.

"All of my lessons at this point were one-on-one, and I quickly realized that I favored this teaching style because it really allows a customization of the curriculum to suit each individual child's needs. As a math and english peer tutor in high school, I found that such a one-on-one style is also ideal for more academic subjects, for the same facility of curriculum customization. Additionally, I enjoy having a strong personal connection with my students, something facilitated by one-on-one tutoring sessions. Music and the English language are my two true passions, and working with kids that share those passions was particularly ...

"As an undergrad I did a variety of educational volunteer work including helping elementary school students with their homework, acting as a teacher’s assistant for a high school summer school class, and editing college English essays. Shortly after graduation, I worked with K-12th grade students on everything from test prep and building good study habits, to understanding grammar usage, essay thesis statements, intermediate algebra formulas, and how to tackle research projects. In 2009 I returned to Japan as a teacher and cultural ambassador on the JET Program. This amazing opportunity allowed me to share my passion for learning ...

"Because I really cared that he understand the material - not just answer questions correctly - when I found that the teaching methods that worked best for me were not ideal for him, I adjusted my teaching style to play to his strengths and natural habits. Likewise, I tailor how I teach to each of my students. Through paying careful attention to how they execute problems and which explanations they prefer, I explore their individual learning style and develop teaching methods that cater to them. This customization has served my students well in my various teaching jobs, from being a Sunday school teaching assistant in middle school to a ...

" 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."
