" 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. As I helped them with their homework and test prep for high school, I developed a teaching style that promoted good study skills for my students to use beyond our tutoring sessions."

"I absolutely love to teach! I find it vital to form a bond with my students, to get to know them and really find out what they like, what they are good at and what will help them to be successful. I have well practiced methods for helping students learn new material and re-learn old or difficult material. I also incorporate methods that help to greatly reduce anxiety, and actually make math fun! When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my four year old, Julia, and my crazy dog, Albie.

" Students are often better able to grasp complicated concepts when they're viewed in an interdisciplinary context. As an artist and techie I frequently call on both my creative and analytical sides when teaching and developing curriculum, especially in the areas of science-arts. Some of my fondest moments have been when a student mastered a complicated skill or concept with ease because they were so highly focused on the “fun” project or experiment. I bring this same creativity and passion to all disciplines from literature and history to science and scholarly research.." ...

" 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.
