Daniel "...I feel that I work very well with students, and my strong communication skills makes me a strong candidate for tutoring students (particularly in math).

Although I do not have paid tutoring experience, in high school, I participated in a program in which students devoted their study hall to tutoring fellow students with special needs. This 2-year peer mentoring experience provided me with a variety of new skills that I find will benefit me as a tutor and will benefit the students who I teach as well..."

Rayna "By helping adolescents to define themselves based on their own talents and a valuable self-worth instead of trying to meet someone else’s expectations, we can build students' confidence and academic success. We all have the right and responsibility to accept ourselves by defining who we are on our own terms and knowing what we stand for. This intricate balance can be achieved through increasing the availability and visibility of positive role models, advocating for participation in extracurricular activities, and educating students about goal setting and having high expectations for themselves.."
