" I have found that I am quite passionate about teaching and helping others succeed. Much of my strength as a tutor comes from patience and allowing the student to find the answer on his own and not just handing it to him/her. I am able to relate well to students and am especially good at making the subject matter interesting and showing the student how it is in fact useful for real life. In my free time, I love playing sports and spending time with friends and family."

"I taught students who started at 25 on the ACT and ended up at 34, but at least as satisfying were those students who started at 14 and eventually achieved 19. More important than such external measurements, however, is the individual student's knowledge that he or she has come into possession of, and internalized, a set of tools useful for further learning. I've edited five books for Duke University Press, and I have also taught college. My students find me friendly and approachable, and I love teaching. My undergraduate degree is in classics (Harvard), for which I wrote an honors thesis on the Odyssey of Homer." ...

"As I worked with him throughout the semester, I was able to raise his grade from an "F" to a "B" by the end of the semester. During that time, I really focused on making sure my student understood the basics and fundamental processes before slowly moving onto more challenging processes so that each step could build off each other. This is how I learned best in school and I believe it is a great way to teach students to help them understand the concepts much more clearly. When I'm not tutoring, I have a variety of interests and hobbies, such as sports, running, food, and travel. Currently, I also work as a scribe for physicians ...

" In high school, I volunteered for three years as a tutor as part of an after-school tutoring service provided by students, for students. I tutored a variety of academic subjects, including English and History. I also developed extensive experience in test prep for the PSAT, SAT and the AP exams. As a tutor, I constantly try different hooks that might pique the interest of the student. For example, some students are interested in real-life applications of the subject; some like clever metaphors and mental pictures; some are very motivated by extrinsic rewards, like a good test score, while others do better when they can forget the test and ...
