" I went on to work for another, more individualized company as a lead academic tutor in test prep and multiple subjects. I was recruited by an online tutoring firm to write and perform their ACT prep video series. I currently assist students in Liberal Arts Studies through the Writing Center at the Juilliard School, and I continue to teach lessons in music. My enthusiasm for working with students continues to grow as I meet more capable, intelligent young people who often just need insight into how to tackle the mass of material they receive in the classroom." ...

" In recent years, I've focused on tutoring high school math and science. I also work with students on Spanish, ISEE, SSAT, SAT Prep, and collegiate level courses. As a chemical engineering student at UPenn, I learned the importance of having a great tutor firsthand. Some of my professors were not that interested or particularly talented at teaching the material, so I turned to the TAs, who were graduate students in my major. They were incredibly helpful and provided a fresh perspective with keen insight that I couldn't have gained from simply reading the textbook." ...

" I especially love tutoring non-math types who think they will never get it! It is a great thrill to watch a student's confidence build and hear that wonderful sigh of relief when they finally 'get it'! I like to have fun in my sessions and I am careful to study my student's learning style. Once we tap into the student's natural strengths, the growth is exponential and the possibilities endless! My hobbies include singing/songwriting, playing piano, journaling, and dancing with my wonderful husband. I have 3 great sons ages 8, 5, and 2 years old. I thank God for them and all the blessings in my life.." ...
