"The most fundamental aspect of tutoring, to me, lies in promoting dialogues, as opposed to monologues. I want my students to see my passion for what I teach, and in turn I want to find out what makes them ask more questions and arrive at more answers -- overall, for them to be able to determine where their own passions lie. 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.

"Before Varsity Tutors, I worked with underprivilieged students from kindergarten through 8th grade in all subjects. I often find that students struggle because they lack confidence which leads to test anxiety and frustration. I try to address these issues by teaching in a way that is in line with the student's learning style. Although I maintain high expectations for all students, I like to create a fun and relaxed environment to make it as least stressful as possible."

"I recently completed a doctoral degree in Clinical Child psychology and am in the throes of a Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Pediatric Neuropsychology, with a special interest in learning, attentional, and "executive" difficulties. I enjoy helping children and teenagers to feel more confident in themselves as learners because I know this to significantly impact on their engagement in school and feelings about themselves outside of the classroom. I avoid a one-size fits all approach to tutoring because I know that children have distinct learning styles. Thus, I seek to understand my students' strengths and motivations in order to ...

"I have been a tutor before I was ever paid to do it. A straight-A high school student, I was always asked to help my brother with his studies, which didn't come as easily to him. When I was a peer tutor at Harvard University, I discovered how enjoyable and rewarding it was to help other people understand our school's Freshman computer requirement and how I could use my knowledge, skills and tricks to help them break down and overcome a daunting goal. I was an officer in the U.S."

"I have been tutoring for years - usually for community service - in an array of subjects, but my passion is in the structure, mechanics, and analysis of language (both English and Spanish). I lived in Spain for a summer and have also spent time in Mexico. I love to learn and to teach others.
