"I am a rising senior at Colgate University majoring in History and French Language & Literature. I recently returned from a year in France (in Paris and Dijon) where I absorbed as much French culture as possible while refining my language skills. I have tutored for the past three years in two different programs--one with local high school and middle school students in subjects like AP US History, the other Colgate's branch of "Let's Get Ready", the SAT and college admissions preparation program..."

"I'm a writer and editor with a passion for learning that I love to share -- I've been told my tag line should be "let's find out!" I'm a native Austinite, but I lived in New York while I got my bachelor's in comparative literature (with a concentration in Central and Eastern European literature) and minored in linguistics. After I graduated I moved back home to Austin and got my masters in global policy studies (with a concentration in security, law and diplomacy) at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at UT. Research for my masters thesis sent me to South Africa, where I got to drive on the other side of the road! And also find out cool stuff about nuclear non-proliferation. As the oldest of three kids, I've been teaching informally for as long as I can remember..."

"I have recently moved back to Georgia after teaching English in Japan (on the JET Programme) for three years. I have a BA in Classical Languages from Vanderbilt University, and my study of Latin has improved my grasp of the English language. I can help students with language-related tutoring (English, Latin, Japanese, and ESL) and test prep (GRE, ACT, SAT). In Japan, I taught K-9th grade English classes at three schools; in the two elementary schools, I was in charge of the English curriculum..."

"... I've worked as a tutor for many years, including providing essay help to Princeton students as a Writing Center Fellow. Learning any subject requires a lot of hard work, but I also think having a tutor should be fun! I know that's a cliche, but I truly believe in developing lasting relationships with each student and developing a rapport. Because there's only one student to help, there's no excuse not to make the lessons engaging and personalized to their interests..."

"...I majored in English, but was once a math major, and before that a neuroscience major, so I can approach any given topic from several different angles, rendering material relevant to students with diverse interests. As a writer, I specialize in using sharp language to cut through mental fog and have the analytical skills to show others how to do the same. Breaking information into smaller pieces makes it easier to digest and remember; so in addition to teaching students course material, I model learning skills that they can use on future material. I hold that more education is the key to making the world a better place, but test and classroom anxiety, unfortunately, can prevent a student from performing to his or her full potential..."
