"I am passionate about education and believe strongly in academic success as a platform for personal growth and self-esteem. My tutoring experience began in middle school as a reading helper to children for whom English was a second language (ages 5-10). I continued to tutor throughout middle and high school as a ‘homework helper’ for kids with behavioral and developmental challenges, which required that I teach a range of subjects at various levels with personalized approaches for each student (ages 9-13). While in high school, I completed a challenging AP curriculum and tutored my peers in Biology, Psychology, English, Spanish, ...

"I believe it is very important for me to be able to relate with my students, therefore, I reach out to them on a personal level in such a way to understand why they are having difficulty in the subject and explain to them how I would try to overcome any mental block. I also try to understand the best way they learn so that I can approach them in a way that best suits their needs. Every student is different and everyone's needs are just as different. I make sure to understand my students to the best of my abilities and connect with them to be able to give them the academic support and help that they need.." ...

" I'm currently in my second year at The New School for Social Research, where I am a Psychology MA candidate. 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.

"Perhaps the student is already proficient but wants to improve in a few key areas. In any case, the right combination of dedication and guidance from a tutor can help tremendously.

That is why I approach each student individually and attempt to match the sessions to what will be most helpful for each student."
