" 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." ...

" 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. Every child is unique and has his or her own learning style.

"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. I am not satisfied with my performance until I see that a student fully grasps the material and can apply it in his or her academic future, long after our tutoring sessions.." ...

"I have over eight years experience tutoring, mostly in math and science, but other subjects as well. I attempt to find analogous concepts from a student's other interests or daily experiences to make abstract concepts more understandable. I believe that generally, grasping a concept follows on from realizing it's not so foreign as we used to think.."

" I try to help students develop the skills they need so that they can move forward with confidence and continue to improve. I have been reading my whole life, and I've done a lot of creative writing, so I have a great love of words. 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. I think that ...

"I try to help them develop a process, rather than just focusing on answers. If the student can fix the root of their problem, they don't come back with the same problem week after week. To use music as an example, something I do frequently, rather than just telling a student about a concept, I work with them until they can hear the same thing I'm hearing. Then they can work on it even if I'm not in the room. I believe that all students are capable of learning and being successful."
