"Somewhere along the way, I realized that not everyone was enjoying school as much as I did. I've been tutoring for several years, both one on one and in groups, and have developed a true passion for not only helping students perform better in the classroom, but inspiring them to see the value in learning (even the subjects they detest!). I also thoroughly enjoy working with those students who remind me of myself; who are looking for an even greater challenge outside of the classroom and love to tackle new learning opportunities. I have a "we're in this together" attitude that makes it possible for me to identify with each student; we will both ...

"I have a younger sister applying to college now, so I'm once again in the throws of reading over various essay drafts and navigating the Common App. Aside from tutoring, I also like theatre, dance, ice skating, and chocolate! As an artist, arts educator and dramaturg, I'm curious and passionate about literature and history, and how these things inform our society in the present. I want to help other students find ways to be excited about these subjects. The things you learn in school should feel applicable to your life and I can help you rediscover how, while helping with any material that feels particularly challenging or inaccessible." ...

"My method of teaching is to first find out what the student knows, what he or she hopes to learn, and about any passions or concerns the student has. Second, I present a plan of how I think we should go about mastering the needed knowledge, get feedback, and begin to see what teaching tools have optimal resonance. Third, I follow the plan while continually checking for acquisition and if there are any new areas that need to be addressed. I am creative, intuitive, patient, and a really great listener."

"Today, I am a post-baccalaureate student at the University of Pennsylvania. Because I see myself primarily as a philologist, I am studying in order to enter a Ph.D program. I believe that language is one of the primary factors in shaping how we, as individuals, think and present our ideas to the world. I am also a proponent of teaching Classical languages such as Latin and Ancient Greek to students in high school because these languages require the development of analytic capabilities which are sometimes lacking in other more memory-oriented subjects." ...

"In many cases, classroom learning cannot replace one-on-one learning in terms of efficiency and efficacy. For this reason, tutoring is often an invaluable component of the schooling process. My academic successes have not only left me with semantic knowledge, but also a number of strategies that can aid struggling students in their comprehension, allowing for procedural learning that will be effective after content-based knowledge is forgotten. I try to inspire students by disseminating information in a manner that they will feel engaged and challenged -- using relevant examples, and thereby forcing them to think critically ...
