"She also learned from her 5th grade experts how to "walk it out" and "Harlem shake" with the best. These experiences helped her through her Masters of Science at NYU, where she honed her journalism skills doing stories about everything from krumping to spontaneous "flash-mobs" in Times Square. A true Star Wars Jedi, Perrine loves helping students master the most challenging of subjects and ace exams, because its awesome when the Dark Sith test makers are defeated by the Force (anyone else thrilled that Episode 7 is coming to a theater near you?!) Her most rewarding moments are seeing her students scores go up more than they imagined! When ...

"I have four years of one on one and group tutoring experience in a majority of math based subjects. I have worked with high school and college level students in Algebra, Geometry, Calculus and Statistics. I like to use a three part tutoring method that: 1) determines what the student does not understand, 2) walks step by step through example problems, and 3) requires the student to show me that a problem can be completed independently.."

"I have "itchy feet," according to my dad--I love to travel, and have been to more than 20 countries. I lived in South Africa for two years on a research fellowship, and I studied Arabic in Egypt. I learned to surf in Costa Rica and ate a lot of pasta in Italy. In my free time I am a voracious reader, as well as a soccer player, a godparent to a delightful one-year-old who lives in Atlanta, and a total sucker for BBC adaptations (but I also love reality TV!).."

"I've worked as an instructor, workshop facilitator, and one-on-one tutor during my undergraduate career. Most students come to me for essay-writing and English, but I've also worked with standardized test preparation, reading, economics, government, and college preparation.

" However, my interest in studying the natural world has caused me to suffer through more math classes than I care to count. As a result, I am well-equipped to help 'math-shy' students understand, appreciate, and flourish in a subject that they may have previously disliked. I believe in forging a relationship between the student and the subject matter with the idea being able to answer the question "when will I ever need to know this?" is the first step to understanding. Currently, I live in Houston with my bride, Nathalie, and our great big black lab, affectionately know as "The Bear". I love being out-of-doors in any capacity and am an avid ...

" This problem of student discouragement is a serious one, because learning starts with motivation; students will not be motivated to learn in an environment where they feel overwhelmed, scared, or unintelligent. That's where tutoring comes in. I've found that the best way for anyone to learn is by meeting with a teacher one-on-one. I was fortunate enough to study for three months in Oxford, England in 2010, and during those three months I learned more than I ever have at any other time."

" I worked for The University of Chicago Center for Urban School Improvement – an initiative of the university to bolster education in some of the city’s lowest achieving schools. During the school day I served as a Literacy Tutor for students in Kindergarten through 3rd grade. I also provided homework help and math and literacy tutoring for K-8 students in an after-school program. At the conclusion of the school year, I was part of a team of two tutors whose students demonstrated the most improvement of all the students in the program, and I was selected to attend the Leadership Training Seminar by the Illinois Commission on Volunteerism ...

" I feel that real breakthroughs are made in this one-on-one setting. I like to change students’ perceptions of concepts from mystifying to attainable.

" I’m knowledgeable in a wide variety of subjects; from trigonometry to chemistry to statistics to the LSAT, I am confident in my ability to help you to perform at your very best. As a tutor I do not strive to simply explain how to get the right answers, but rather to instill a deep and concrete understanding of the relevant concepts and theories at hand. I specialize in test prep (SAT, ACT, & LSAT) and study techniques. In a sense, tests are like games, and going into them with a winning game-plan makes a world of difference."
