"This has given me great experience seeing what goes into testing students; I know what they should know at various grade levels, I'm familiar with LOTS of pedagogical techniques (and have seen what works and what doesn't), and I've had a lot of experience "leveling" text and lessongs. That means that I know how to adapt a student's in-school curriculum to match their particular ability level and learning styles. I truly believe that the best way to help students learn is to do what works best for them -- if a student is struggling with reading, I try to get to know the student to learn not only the academic troubles he or she is having but also his ...

"In the more immediate future, I hope to achieve a master’s degree in international relations. My studies have provided me the knowledge and skills to be a useful tutor not only in political science and international studies, but also history, English, writing, American politics and government, research, and literature. In addition, for the last nine years or so, I have studied Spanish. Since freshman year of high school, I have studied Spanish each year, building on the foundation I built in the previous year. In the fall of 2010, I was fortunate enough to study in Bilbao, Spain, where I lived with a host family and took all of my courses ...

"I learned Spanish as a second language, and becoming fluent was one of the most exciting things I have ever done. Helping beginners to feel comfortable with the language is very rewarding. Last, I have worked with so many students who have great ideas, but struggle to write them down effectively in the ways that teachers, tests and colleges require. I love to help students represent themselves and their ideas well through essay-writing, and I focus especially on ACT, SAT and college applications.."

I believe that one-on-one help is often the best pathway to success, and I enjoy individualizing my lessons to a student's interests and needs.

"I am currently serving as a private French and Spanish teacher for preschool children. Prior to that, I was living in France and working as an elementary school and high-school English teacher. I must admit that anything having to do with languages, reading and writing is my official strong suite. So, what makes me a great tutor? Patience, a lighthearted nature, and dedication to each and every student's individual success.."

"One of the things I enjoyed most was meeting with these groups of students outside of the classroom to work on their business plans, practice their presentations, and help them work through any challenges and feel confident about their work and preparation for the competitions. I have a variety of teaching and training experiences in different contexts. After receiving my bachelors degree in Business Administration from Truman State University, I joined a team of trainers at a financial services company, Edward Jones. I worked with adult professionals to help them obtain their Series 7 licensure." ...

" I also served as a mentor throughout the program. Most recently, through AmeriCorps, I tutored sixth graders in the Summer Bridge Program at Gillespie Elementary School. I assisted students with both math and reading material so that they could progress to the seventh grade. As a tutor, my strongest traits are my patience and my adaptability. I have the ability to think of new ways to describe the same material until my client truly grasps the concept."
