"I am currently a 6th grade teacher, I teach Math, English/Language Arts (ELA), and Social Studies. One of the things I enjoy most about teaching is the knowing that not only can I help my students, but my students help me. I learn from my students each day and I think that has helped me to become a better teacher. I enjoy all of the subjects I teach, it’s hard for me to choose one as my favorite. Math is all around us and I feel it’s important for my students to be aware of that – it doesn’t just happen in a textbook."

"I am currently a graduate student at New York Medical College furthering my education in Physiology with plans to attend Medical school. Sciences are my strong point but I have always been involved with athletics playing varsity ice hockey throughout university. Helping students be successful in school along with being a student athlete is something I feel is very important.

"My philosophy as a tutor and teacher is to guide, rather than direct, each student's learning and to recognize and adapt to the unique abilities and levels of every student. I believe that every student's needs are different and that the best way for the tutor or teacher to address these diverse needs is to listen to the student. In addition, I think it's important to use the knowledge that students already have to allow them to discover and intuit answers that they didn't know they were capable of producing. This requires enhancing each student's confidence as developing writers and readers. My extensive experience as a tutor and teacher ...

"I recently graduated from Bucknell University, where I majored in Education and Psychology. During my time at college, I volunteered as a tutor at an after-school program with elementary students, and I also tutored students individually in their classrooms for several of my Education classes. When I tutor, I try to get to know the student first before delving directly into the material, so that the student comes to trust me, and so that I get a better feel for the student's interests and individual learning style. I think it's important to remember that everyone learns differently, and I try to cater my tutoring techniques to the ...
