"I will be attending Georgetown University next year for a Master's in Physiology and Biophysics. I am available and excited to be able to tutor this summer in various subjects, including test-prep for the ACT, SAT, and MCAT. I enjoy tutoring greatly because it is something I have done for years now and find very rewarding. One of my favorite parts of being a tutor is the ability to help a student not only learn the material but also gain confidence in their ability to perform."

"I love connecting with individual students, and each one I meet teaches me how to help the next. My tutoring style centers on breaking down concepts and starting from scratch, while focusing on logical thinking and analytical skills. I want the student to be able to teach their way through solving a problem so they can apply the fundamentals in other places. Working with students one-on-one is great because I get a chance to see what they’re curious and passionate about, and how they personally value the subjects in which they are struggling. A student's motivation is sparked by a connection to their goals and interests, and the confidence ...

"However, often students are trained to learn the letter of the information but not the spirit. I aim to push past understanding the material with each student so that they can also see the approach to learning. This allows them to tackle new problems more effectively because they understand how to approach a problem they do not know how to solve. When you combine this with my experience in teaching students from age 4 to adult and with differing disabilities it becomes a path for students to grow to their fullest potential.."

"I think that the one-on-one attention that tutoring provides students can definitely make the difference between passing and failing. When I tutor, my main goal is to break down convoluted topics to the major concept. In doing so, I help students see the main idea of what they are doing, remove any unnecessary information, and provide procedures that will work every time. In doing so, I have seen my students' grades improve drastically in the past."

" I know how to help a student prepare for a test because I have given thousands of tests myself. I have a lot of experience explaining things to students and find it tremendously rewarding to help them improve. I have not tutored even a single student who was not able, with effort, to improve and usually significantly.."

" Learning any subject requires lots of hard work, but I also think having a tutor should be fun! I know that's a cliche, but I truly believe in developing lasting relationships with each student and developing a rapport. Because there's only one student to help, there's no excuse not to make the lessons engaging and personalized to their interests. For example, if you have a student who loves sports but struggles with math, I have a slew of analogies that can help. To me, tutoring is a delicate balance between a hands-on and hands-off approach. Any tutor worth his salt will know not just how to guide students through concepts, but also when to ...

"I also spent one year as an individual tutor for biology and general chemistry. One of my most fulfilling experiences as a tutor was working with several special needs students in the biological sciences; that experience really helped broaden my horizons as an educator. The summer after I graduated I was given the privilege of leading a study group for general biology. Students who needed a little bit of extra help for that course could always come to my study group to bolster their knowledge. My extensive experience tutoring and teaching my peers has taught me to approach problems from many different angles, allowing me to help students ...

"Memorizing and cramming will only help to a point, understanding and comprehension is long lasting. It is equally as important to make the material relatable and enjoyable. I will ensure that every student I tutor will comprehend the material while having fun at the same time."

"In high school, my average for the math regents was a 98.67. After that I received an academic scholarship to attend the University of Notre Dame where I really developed a passion for teaching and enlightening students in my free time, despite being a finance major. I decided that instead of teaching/tutoring, I should work for corporate America, and I worked at Goldman Sachs for 3 years. During that process, I realized that my true gift came from incorporating real life examples from the real world with academic lessons, which often help when teaching and fully learning a lesson." ...

"Prior to teaching, I practiced criminal law for several years. While law school prepared me well for drafting legal documents and writing complicated briefs, it did not provide me with a career for which I had passion. Serving as a prosecutor in the Bronx County District Attorney's Office, I saw first hand the tragic results of our city's failing educational system. I saw the widening achievement gap and I became passionate about closing it."
