"I am drawn to tutoring by my love of a challenge. While at Brown I tutored part time at a high school near the college campus and found the experience of helping the students improve their performance to be extremely rewarding.

Not everyone takes naturally to standardized tests, but I love the process of breaking the tests down into their component elements and systematically overcoming each of the challenges posed."

" The one common factor that I have found is that everyone can learn if the material is explained to them in the manner they need. I enjoy seeing the individual come to the moment that they understand the material and no longer need the help as much as simply validation that they are on the right track. I have found that everyone learns in their own way and at their own speed.."
