"...While an undergraduate, I worked with students of all ages in a number of subjects. As an America Reads employee at a Vermont elementary school, I provided support in a kindergarten classroom, engaging young students in hands-on activities and offering specialized attention as they completed assignments. While learning to teach at a junior preparatory school in New Hampshire, I worked with small classes of middle school students learning everything from ESL and creative writing to Algebra II (and even got to teach an elective in introductory graphic design, which is one of my major hobbies)..."

I grew up in New York City and rural Massachusetts; I moved to LA recently and am loving it so far!

"Originally from New Hampshire, I am a graduate of Georgetown University, and I have experience working with students in reading, math and writing. Astute high-school students may recognize these as the three components of the SAT. In fact, I have previously tutored for a reputable local SAT company, and can provide SAT prep assistance in either math, reading or writing for any grade level. Beyond that, I studied English as an undergraduate, and enjoy working with students on reading development, reading comprehension and analytical writing..."

"...I love helping others learn and enjoy math at their pace, using whatever methods that most suit them. I try to incorporate my counseling psychology background to foster the most optimal environment for growth. It's more important that you "get it" conceptually than memorizing formulas. I have experience in tutoring math (ranging from elementary math up to the GRE Quantitative section), as well as ESL during my year in Seoul, South Korea. In the free time that I have, I love running, riding my bike, exploring different food finds, and catching up with friends..."

"...from Yale University, during which I studied and worked in Brazil, Italy, Korea, Nicaragua, Cambodia, and Croatia. I grew up without much money, and education was the only reason I was able to leave poverty. I would love nothing better than to help other students do the same and reach their full capacities.
