"I have been tutoring for over five years. I specialize in test prep, and assisting students in improving their writing skills. I also work with students in history and general homework help. I am a published writer, with articles in national and local publications and Yahoo! Finance.

"In high school, standardized tests did not come naturally to me. With an A average in all AP and honors classes and an overflowing list of extracurricular activities, it frustrated me that something like one test score could affect my college admissions. But like most challenges in my life, I viewed it as motivation. I took a course, got private math tutoring, took practice tests, and came up with essay prompts."

"Understanding the process of how to solve a question is crucial when it comes to math and science classes. That's why I help my students to figure out answers on their own as opposed to telling them the answers. I ask my students questions to lead them through the solving process, which engages them and makes them more likely to learn and remember the material. I also think learning and laughing work well together, so I make my tutoring sessions educational and fun. I graduated from Williams College in 2012, where I majored in biology and completed pre-medical studies." ...

"The most important thing I've learned from tutoring is that energy, empathy and character make a great teacher, far above and beyond mastery of the topics and skills that need teaching. Somewhere down the road I gained a genuine interest in seeing my students succeed- not just at getting the grades they were after, but in gaining the kind of perspective and motivation that helps them do what they really want to do, long after our last session or their last final. It doesn't hurt that I've had a lot of practice with the things I teach, but I am much more proud of my more personal achievements than of my test scores or good grades. Some of my students ...
