"Currently, I am working as an after school teacher at C.C.B. School for third grade English, Math, and Reading & Essay. Although they may get loud at times, their sensitive, funny and quirky ways have stolen my heart and I am not contemplating going into the teaching profession as an elementary school teacher. However, due to the large class size, it is difficult for me to give all my students one-on-one attention."

"Last year, I had the opportunity to teach ESL classes to kids aged 7-10 while studying abroad. I like learning each student's learning style. When I was going through the process of taking the SAT and LSAT, I realized that I learned and thought like no one else in my class. That's when I realized the importance of personalized teaching.."

" I especially love tutoring non-math types who think they will never get it! It is a great thrill to watch a student's confidence build and hear that wonderful sigh of relief when they finally 'get it'! I like to have fun in my sessions and I am careful to study my student's learning style. Once we tap into the student's natural strengths, the growth is exponential and the possibilities endless! My hobbies include singing/songwriting, playing piano, journaling, and dancing with my wonderful husband. I have 3 great sons ages 8, 5, and 2 years old. I thank God for them and all the blessings in my life.." ...

" "Mom's homework" was our way into the best private schools in the northeast. My own children - my autistic son and my intellectually gifted daughter - did "Mom's homework" as well, which enabled them to reach their own intellectual bests. I believe that children have exactly one chance at a good education track. A good tutor can hone skills that might not have been properly nurtured in the usual academic setting. I've been teaching and tutoring in many different situations and I've developed some unique teaching tools that will engage your child and help him/her sharpen the English skills necessary for test taking ...

"I believe that students need to learn how to ask the right questions so that they can navigate the increasingly sophisticated world around them. This belief informs my teaching style; I act as a guide for students rather than someone dispensing information. Nothing is more enjoyable than the look on a student's face when he or she has just realized that he or she can solve a problem without anyone's help. When I'm not tutoring, I love walking through New York for design inspiration and taking carpentry, metalworking, and illustration classes.." ...

"One of my mentor teachers was fond of saying, "Teach the child, not the subject", meaning that the student comes first - before the curriculum, before the test scores, before the tutor. I've learned to incorporate this ideology into my own teaching practice by differentiating instruction for each of my students. I develop a rapport, meet students where they're at, and teach them the literacy and problem solving skills they need to become life-long learners. Once a student knows how to learn, whole new worlds open for them and the actual material is a matter of course.." ...

"I think that the one-on-one attention that tutoring provides students can definitely make the difference between passing and failing. When I tutor, my main goal is to break down convoluted topics to the major concept. In doing so, I help students see the main idea of what they are doing, remove any unnecessary information, and provide procedures that will work every time. In doing so, I have seen my students' grades improve drastically in the past."

" I believe that tutoring should be a mutual learning experience, and I am always willing to employ fun and creative strategies to help my students learn. 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."
