" I moved out to New York originally to take advantage of an exciting opportunity to work towards the development of a safe and effective vaccine for the HIV virus. I’ve stayed because of the vibe of excitement and competition in the city. It truly does push you to be your best. In my free time, I enjoy exploring the ever-changing NYC landscape, stumbling about the internet learning whatever it has to teach me, studying politics both as an art and a science, as well as my guilty pleasure of watching the NFL and the occasional Newcastle game." ...

"Writing is what I do, and I am especially well-trained when it comes to writing the academic essay. I treat tutoring the same way I treat directing actors: there is no one-size-fits-all approach, so I've learned to identify the specific strategies that will work for each person in order to guide them on the path to success. In my spare time, I read, see plays, watch movies, and perform improv comedy.."

"My experience working and teaching students in other countries and cities has only serve to further my belief that there is no one 'right' model, yet more individualized instruction most often yields the greatest success. Learning is comprised of many components and how we teach our children should be regularly assessed to fit the needs of an evolving society. I have experience teaching and tutoring students with Special Needs, English Language Learners and Gifted and Talented children. Yet regardless of however a child is 'labeled' I believe all children, with the right amount of motivation and interest, can be given tools that will ...
