"I believe that good tutoring is about encouragement, inspiration, understanding the difficulties of the student in an empathic way and working one step at a time to help the student believe in themselves and overcome those difficulties. I also believe that great tutoring combines rigorous study with a sense of joy and fun. I am a patient, engaging and caring person and bring these qualities to my work. During my free time I enjoy writing, reading, playing the guitar, studying psychology, philosophy and the religions of the world, traveling, listening to music and hanging out with my friends." ...

"My teaching approach is very much tailored to students' individual needs. I'll take the time to know you and what you want to learn before the tutoring begins, so as not to waste your time going over things you already know. I firmly believe that writing, reading and test-taking are skills that can be learned by anyone, and that personal, one-to-one instruction is the best way for students to go beyond what they are able to learn in school. My tutoring is worth the investment!."

"Later, I moved on to tutoring students in a more structured environment in subjects involving biology, physics, and more advanced mathematics such as calculus. Although I do follow a very straightforward curriculum, my teaching style is more adaptive than it is rigid. Private tutoring offers the benefit of sitting down one-on-one with a student so that I can zero in on problem areas and misunderstood concepts. My ability to be flexible allows me to comfortably teach the student in a way he or she best understands so that the lesson will "stick".." ...

"I started tutoring again here in New York--and began applying to grad school in education--because I had come to miss these joys. Again, my main subject area is math, but I have a strong background in a wide array of other fields and, having worked two years writing workbooks for the test, am particularly well qualified for tutoring for the SAT. My teaching style is highly customized to the student(s) I'm working with: my main goal is always to make him or her feel as comfortable as possible. But beyond that--unless we're quickly nearing a standardized test date and fundamental understanding is temporarily less of a priority than scoring ...
