"I like evaluating problem areas for students and helping them with those while strengthening areas that they're more comfortable in. When I tutor, I try my best to place myself in my student’s shoes so that I can see where the problems lie and how we can tackle them together. In most cases, I realize that students have difficulties not because they can’t do the work but because they need to approach it differently, from another perspective. I try to integrate concepts that make learning more enjoyable and relatable for each individual student." ...

"These students lack the belief that they will learn, even if they work hard. These students need to find evidence of success that they can then use to motivate themselves. My job as tutor is to reinforce any and all progress so these students can begin to see themselves in a new way – as a success in school. My upbeat personality, knowledge of learning, role modeling and gentle guidance has enabled me to help many students go beyond their wildest dreams in the last 6 years.Working with struggling students of all ages has taught me how important it is to possess patience, a sense of humor and the ability to instill a belief in students that they can ...

" I wrote about legal and financial issues and discovered that I really enjoy the law - so I moved to Williamsburg, Virginia for three years and studied at the College of William & Mary, the country's oldest law school. During the week, I am a practicing attorney who has taken and passed three bar exams - each on the first attempt. I believe that any student can achieve and that no one style fits everyone. I maintain flexibility and adjust my methodologies for each student that I work with. However, I generally like to keep my sessions casual, focusing on improving the student's confidence and scores, as I have found that some students become ...

" I intend to complete a PhD in Clinical Psychology. I love learning, and I love helping others to enjoy the learning process as well. I like to approach subjects from different angles, as I think that it's important to not only learn the material for a specific subject, but to also discover which techniques and methods of learning work best for you or your child. In discovering how you best learn, you can improve your understanding and performance in all subjects! I started my tutoring journey in 7th grade, when I tutored my slightly older friend for the Math B Regents. Seeing her excitement when she figured out a new concept is what inspired me ...

" Although history is my passion, I am well versed in English, Biology and served as a TA for Calculus my freshman year of college. I find that each student learns at a different capacity, so my teaching style is to first be aware of the material trying to be better understood. Then finding the correlation of the students interests and strengths in order to best relate the material we would be working with. I will then find the best way possible to make learning interesting and each experience and session new."
