"... Both my graduate and undergraduate studies have explored how the brain effectively learns information, and I look forward to opportunities where I can share what I have researched with others. Given my background, I am proficient in math, science, and psychology, and can help my students apply the principles of scientific writing to create clear and concise essays. Having recently taken the GREs, I look forward to sharing strategies for effective test-taking and SAT preparation. In my spare time I love running, and am a member of a women's running club..."

"I am a recent Duke graduate with several years of tutoring experience and a heart for helping others succeed. Recognizing that hard work becomes easier with interest and engagement, I make the learning environment relaxed and enjoyable - and sometimes outright fun! I find tutoring to be incredibly rewarding, and strive to have my students view their work the same way, leaving them feeling more comfortable in their coursework, confident in their abilities, and excited for new challenges. For three years I worked as an ACT teacher and tutor, helping students raise their scores an average of 4 points, and as many as 9. Most recently, I worked with a struggling college senior (self-described as "bad at math") to achieve a score of 100% on her College Algebra final..."

"I graduated from Brown with a degree in History and took a wide variety of courses during my time as an undergraduate – from Russian literature to Buddhist philosophy to modern dance. I thoroughly enjoy the process of helping students improve their performance in the classroom and on standardized tests. My goal is to help students develop a passion, or at least an interest, in subject areas they may have learned to dislike or fear. I build students' confidence by helping them understand the connection between areas of study that challenge them, and other subjects they may already feel comfortable with. I believe that writing, reading and analysis are not innate abilities, but rather skills that each student must work to develop..."

"...I firmly believe that everyone is smart in their own way, and I love to discover and appreciate each student's way of learning and thinking. I believe that we all construct our own knowledge through experience - we learn by doing, by experimenting, trying, and experiencing - and I encourage my students to try out and adjust their own strategies, instead of always expecting them to do it my way. I am an artist, writer and musician (I led a folk band for 5 years). I am an avid public transit rider and often get around by bicycle..."

Of course, I want to help you do the best you can do, but I also don't want you to dread the two hours we spend together each week.
