" I’m knowledgeable in a wide variety of subjects; from trigonometry to chemistry to statistics to the LSAT, I am confident in my ability to help you to perform at your very best. As a tutor I do not strive to simply explain how to get the right answers, but rather to instill a deep and concrete understanding of the relevant concepts and theories at hand. I specialize in test prep (SAT, ACT, & LSAT) and study techniques. In a sense, tests are like games, and going into them with a winning game-plan makes a world of difference."

"Before I started graduate school I worked as an Outreach Instructor for the Arizona Science Center, where I was commended for my creativity and engaging style. I have a wide array of teaching experience, from introducing poetry to second-graders to teaching grammatical structure to undergraduates to conducting science experiments with retirees. My main goal in any subject, including testing, is to help the student learn the fundamental skills required to creatively problem-solve any new difficulties they encounter in the material, because these skills are transferable to any subject or test.

"I've worked with a wide range of students from middle school age all the way up to college level. English is easily my favorite subject to tutor. Few things are quite as satisfying as introducing a student to the world of literature and enabling them to better express themselves through the written word. However, I was also a proud math team nerd in middle and high school, so I also highly enjoy the mental calisthenics of a good math tutoring session. My verbal and mathematical skills both come in handy for SAT prep as well."

"I took classes on technology in the classroom, curriculum development, and teaching theory among others and used the skills I learned here to teach in summer and Saturday enrichment programs. I recently moved to Los Angeles and found myself missing the interaction I had with the students I knew while attending UVA, and I am so excited to meet my future pupils! Nothing can beat sharing the joy of learning (especially learning something new for the first time) with someone else. My favorite subjects to tutor are writing and language arts. In my free time I love to go for hikes, swing dance, cook new recipes, read books, and watch movies.." ...

"I have read and evaluated over 1,000 admissions essays written by high school students, interviewed hundreds of college admissions applicants, and participated in numerous Admissions Committee meetings at which admissions decisions were made. I have also taught high school students preparing for the Georgia High School Graduation Test and coordinated the student workers in the Office of Admission at Sarah Lawrence College. My favorite subjects by far are History and Religion (obviously, or I wouldn't be getting my PhD in Religious History), but I also have a background in literature, writing, and even some performing arts. I ...

" I do not have a preference of what age I work with, as long as I feel I can pass along my enjoyment of the subject. It is easy to get bogged down in the details, but I like to talk about why they are important to the larger picture.

During my free time, I spend time reading, but also try to stay active with my friends in unorganized athletic activities.."
