"I have been a tutor for almost eight years, and have worked with elementary, high school, and college students. I especially enjoy helping students with standardized exams such as the SAT, ACT, and GRE. Not only can I help with problem solving strategies, but I can also work with students to ease testing anxiety. Using my fluency in Greek, I help students boost their verbal section scores by teaching them common Greek word roots.."

" 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."

"in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology.

" My students understand that I am 100% dedicated to their progress and that no question is insignificant in the learning process. My work with various educational non-profits has allowed me to engage students from a range of backgrounds. I began tutoring my first semester at college with middle school.

" I know from personal experience that learning any lesson is easier when one is interested and enjoys the learning experience. To that effect, I use concepts and analogies that relate to the students and grab their interests, and this relation may be from other topics or courses they have previously studied or an experience they come across on a daily basis. The latter is especially effective since that daily experience would serve to reinforce the lessons for the students and commit it to memory. These techniques along with others work well for tutoring since we often must cover a large amount of information in a relatively short amount of ...

" Some of my students who "hated" reading and writing now devour books (or at least magazines) and churn out masterful essays when they have to. Others who "couldn't" study find they have a new drive after I relate to them about overcoming my own challenges with time management and discipline. It's not easy forming a connection between getting a great score on a standardized test and doing the things we actually want to be doing months or years later, and maybe it's bizarre that we have to, but it's there- or you wouldn't be looking for a tutor! The best compliment I've consistently received from students and parents is that I actually make this ...

" In addition, I have been a supplemental education provider, an SAT proctor and prep class teacher, and currently teach chess to first- through fifth-graders. I enjoy words, word games, reading, mathematics, discovering new things, staying in shape, and sharing what I have learned with others. I am a fan of classic television sit-coms, music from various genres, and my often-hapless yet always-loved New York Mets. I enjoy a good joke or pun, and am frequently ready with one for whomever is willing to listen. In short, I love teaching and having fun, and I know your student and I will enjoy working together." ...
