"I understand that everyone's brain works differently and that school is easy only for those whose way of thinking matches the style of teaching. I try to get the student to understand the problem with his or her own way of thinking, often by breaking the problem down into smaller and smaller pieces. Once the student understands the problem, the solution is easy!."

" I started tutoring local high school and college students when I was in high school. I tutored students in a variety of subjects, ranging from trigonometry to writing to chemistry. I continued tutoring students at Emory, where I was the official class tutor for various subjects, including political science. I succeeded in school because I was interested in what I was doing, and that, to me, is key to being a successful tutor. I like to make things more interesting and to help get students invested in what they are learning."
