"I'm a recent graduate of Muhlenberg College where I double majored in Business Administration and Theater and I'm very excited to help students study for middle school classes, high school classes, and SATs. I chose to become a tutor because I like helping students succeed in school and better understand difficult concepts. It's great to see a student improve their test score and to see something "click" that didn't before. In college I competed in the 400m hurdles in track and field, studied abroad in Alicante, Spain, double majored, and participated in the Muhlenberg Theatre Association.." ...

"My first of such experiences was as a music teacher, teaching kids between the ages of 10 and 15 the basics of violin and guitar. All of my lessons at this point were one-on-one, and I quickly realized that I favored this teaching style because it really allows a customization of the curriculum to suit each individual child's needs. As a math and english peer tutor in high school, I found that such a one-on-one style is also ideal for more academic subjects, for the same facility of curriculum customization. Additionally, I enjoy having a strong personal connection with my students, something facilitated by one-on-one tutoring sessions." ...

"I loved my liberal arts degree, because it allowed me to take classes in everything from African-American Literature to introductory computer science! I am a lifelong writer, and my first collection of poetry was published last year by an independent press based in the UK. I am currently living in Manhattan, where I am an intern at the Huffington Post. In my spare time I love to walk around the city, check out concerts, write poetry, and try new foods. I have worked in private tutoring for almost four years with a special focus on critical reading and writing skills and college application essays." ...

"I majored in Biology and German as an undergraduate at the University of Michigan. I believe it is a teacher or tutor's responsibility to determine a student's individual learning style and tailor her lessons accordingly. I do a brief interview with each client to ascertain whether he or she is a visual, auditory or combination learner and teach with these results in mind. I look forward to working with you to achieve your academic goals!."

"Chinese has been my passion since ninth grade, when I began studying the language and culture at Bard High School Early College. Much of my teaching experience has involved Chinese, most intensely during the summer of 2011 when I worked full time at a school in Queens teaching Mandarin-speaking children how to read and write Chinese characters. My first time teaching Chinese was while in college: I tutored two second graders in an after school program. These experiences truly inspired me and I greatly enjoy tutoring."
