Regarding test preparation, I am particularly strong on Verbal and Critical Reasoning sections.

Joanna "...Sometimes, it can help to relate a difficult concept to a real-life analogy, to draw a diagram, or to make up silly memory devices (King Philip Came Over For Good Spaghetti, anyone??). However, it will always take a lot of hard work, concentration, and practice. It might be a tough journey, but I promise to make it worth the while and a fun experience. I bring more to the table than just having a solid educational background - my biggest strength is the investment that I will make in a student, to make sure that they succeed..."

Nick "... The art education program I completed focused on writing and reflection on art, art making and teaching. This emphasis on reflection is a useful tool that I employ to gauge the effectiveness of my instruction and how I may revise my lesson plan to achieve the lesson objectives. Analytical thinking and writing also supports me in tutoring language arts. I enjoy cooking meals for my family, running and biking, and playing blues, jazz and classical music on the piano..."
James "... I also believe that each student is different and their tutoring should be tailored to their strengths and weaknesses. That is why I approach each student individually and attempt to match the sessions to what will be most helpful for each student. I am a positive person and will always approach a student with a positive outlook, even when they are having difficulty, because confidence is one key element in academic success. I have a Master's degree in English with a focus in writing..."

Isha "...In fact, these traits have given me the ability to develop engaging tutoring sessions that incorporate information from various disciplines to help students reach their full potential in the classroom and the workplace. My approach to teaching is not to just to impart information, but to share information in such a way that will empower students to ask questions. This approach will strengthen their ability to think critically and solve challenging problems..."
Olivia "...After graduating, I spent a year as an English teacher on an exchange fellowship in France at the University of Burgundy in Dijon, and just last year I completed a Master's degree in English Literature at the University of Oxford in England. Throughout my education and my travels, I have tutored students of all ages, ranging from preschoolers in China to adult learners in Massachusetts. After having taken a few months out of school to work at a translation agency and consider whether and in what capacity I wanted to teach, I have decided to go back to graduate school to get my certification in teaching high school English..."
