"...With most students, however, writing is not a skill they can effortlessly pick up, and creativity is not instantly fluid. Bearing that in mind, I use a Socratic method to draw out ideas and key words and phrases when helping students come up with responses to creative writing essay questions, i.e., the kind given on SATs, ACTs and on college essays. Usually, by the end of the session, they find out that they need a lot less help than they thought! I have also done a fair amount of math and science tutoring with middle and high school students, which is almost easier, since full comprehension can be immediately and clearly demonstrated..."

"...What works for one student is not guaranteed to work for another and a good tutor adapts to different situations. Having studied history in college, I spent four years reading and constantly writing papers, giving me a wealth of experience in editing papers for grammar and style. Recently, I've been preparing for the GRE myself and remember more than ever how daunting and stressful the entire test taking process can be! I know that I can help ease a student's mind before the big day, ensuring that they go into the test feeling confident. My background is in less structured forms of education, specifically working in museum education..."

"... Having a passion for the sciences, I worked in various research positions from studying endangered desert tortoises in the Mojave Desert to studying the population genetics of ornamental fishes of the Amazon. I realized I missed the human connection and pursued medical school at the University of Connecticut; where I've found medicine combines both my love of science and helping others. Throughout my research and training in the past nine years, I have tutored students on how to master standardized tests, and helping students achieve their maximum potential to get into the school of their dreams has been an incredibly rewarding experience..."

"... As a strong analytical and creative writer, I am deeply aware of the need to establish a solid grasp of technical concepts before being able to play creatively with words. I’ve had a love of language since I was young, and find it endlessly fascinating that I can create worlds of my own in only a few sentences. Reading and writing have always been the means for me to explore concepts of empathy and human difference, which has then helped me further my study of psychology and interact with the world in a sensitive manner..."
