"My philosophy as a <a href="http://math.metabyt.es/tutor">mathematics tutor</a> consists of two imperatives: content knowledge and communication. I do not believe someone can successfully explain a subject without first having a deep and thorough understanding of the subject themself. However, someone can have all the knowledge in the world, but it would be useless if they could not patiently and efficiently instruct others. When it comes to math tutoring, I am particularly qualified in both regards. In June, I graduated summa cum laude in <a>Mathematics</a> from the Honors College at the University of Oregon (GPA: 4.02)." ...

"I have always had a great passion for the academic environment. In addition to pursuing my phD, I have taught two collegiate level psychology courses and aided many students in their academic pursuits -- including the following subjects: statistics, biology, psychology, reading and writing. I firmly believe in the value of a comprehensive academic training. In many cases, classroom learning cannot replace one-on-one learning in terms of efficiency and efficacy.

"I am currently enrolled in a Secondary School Certification program at Haverford College. As somebody with a teacher as a mother, education has always been present in my life. I grew up thinking about educational policies and philosophies and started teaching at a Sunday school when I was a senior in High School. Since then, I have done several field placements as part of my education courses and also taught in my own classrooms for two summer enrichment programs.

"I'm Sarah! I love teaching arts, literature, writing and history. I'm a college student here in Philly and I went to an independent private school in Boston for high school, so I've been through the standardized tests and application process for both secondary school and college. I have a younger sister applying to college now, so I'm once again in the throws of reading over various essay drafts and navigating the Common App. Aside from tutoring, I also like theatre, dance, ice skating, and chocolate! As an artist, arts educator and dramaturg, I'm curious and passionate about literature and history, and how these things inform our ...
