"I have taught students who were native English speakers, as well as those for whom English was a second language. More often than not, my students have left me feeling more confident and better equipped to read and write in the English language. With a Bachelor's degree in Journalism from Rutgers University, and a Master's of Fine Arts in Fiction Writing from Sarah Lawrence College, I hope to convey to my students what it feels like to be passionate about a subject. Currently, I'm a Features Editor for a fashion and lifestyle magazine." ...

"During my senior year I had an opportunity to provide math tutoring, which helped me realize my abilities to work well with others. I strongly believe in the idea that if you can teach it, you know it. That is exactly what I hope to accomplish; teaching others while expanding my own knowledge.."

"While at Princeton, I was a tutor for the university, and was paid to tutor my peers in whatever subjects were in demand. In my free time I also tutored prisoners through a civic engagement pilot program as volunteer work. I love to experience foreign countries, and so I went abroad during my summers in college. One summer I lived in La Paz, Bolivia where I had a summer internship in a pediatric hospital."

"I enjoy tutoring a wide variety of subjects, but I particularly like reading and writing. I have had experience with private tutoring in several math subjects and have previously taught a chemistry class at a summer enrichment program in my hometown. My past experience has been primarily with middle school and high school aged students, but having younger siblings has equipped me with the skills to relate to students at any age. The style I use when approaching tutoring is to approach problems from several different angles."

" When I was a peer tutor at Harvard University, I discovered how enjoyable and rewarding it was to help other people understand our school's Freshman computer requirement and how I could use my knowledge, skills and tricks to help them break down and overcome a daunting goal. I was an officer in the U.S. Navy, where I learned to lead and teach people from all walks of life, and also saw first-hand how adding inspiration and encouragement helped our whole team do better, and feel better about it.
