"This is my fifth year of teaching, and my first year with Varsity Tutors! I am currently a New York City public school educator, teaching a 5th grade class, after spending three years teaching 2nd grade. As a teacher I strive to ensure each of my students receives a high quality education that meets their needs. As a tutor, this goal also applies. I love helping students reach their "light bulb" moment, the moment where everything finally makes sense."

"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. My students have ranged from the pre-K to university levels." ...
