" Science is my favorite subject to teach, but I simply love imparting knowledge and skills that encourage life-long learning. Although I am certified K-6th grade, I have experience working with and substitute teaching middle and high school students. I enjoy teaching kids on a variety of levels.

I'm particularly fond of Shakespeare (although there are a lot of students who don't agree with me!) but I also have experience reading other European and American literature. My history experiences covers Europe, America, and Latin America, although I have a special fondness for Tudor England (think Henry VIII and his wives), early American history, and classical cultures, like ancient Rome.

"As a college graduate with a bachelor's degree in Natural Sciences and 2 years experience working in a research lab, and a medical school applicant, I understand in depth the subjects that I tutor, as well as my students, their needs, and motivation to learn. I love exploring new ways of presenting material to students and expanding their understanding of a difficult subject or concept.

" Together, we created and implemented activities and lessons relating to many themes for our 14 Pre-k kiddos. I also had opportunities to help with the after school program and athletics at Greenhill, and through those, I was able to work with almost every grade level - all the way up to 12th grade. While I loved interacting with an entire classroom of Pre-kers, it was when I was with one child or a small group that I really felt I was connecting with them. I believe that creating a strong, trusting relationship between student and instructor is crucial to a student's success, and that is how I approach tutoring." ...
