"My greatest challenges and successes in tutoring have been with students who feel they are “behind” in a discipline. These students lack the belief that they will learn, even if they work hard. These students need to find evidence of success that they can then use to motivate themselves. My job as tutor is to reinforce any and all progress so these students can begin to see themselves in a new way – as a success in school."

"My success came from truly understanding the topic and applying it to real world scenarios.

I believe that lasting knowledge comes from understanding, and that understanding is achieved when you can accurately visualize a concept in your mind. I combine a multi-sensory teaching style with vivid real world examples to help students truly understand their subject and apply it to their lives in a fun and exciting way." ...

"I ask my students questions to lead them through the solving process, which engages them and makes them more likely to learn and remember the material. I also think learning and laughing work well together, so I make my tutoring sessions educational and fun. I graduated from Williams College in 2012, where I majored in biology and completed pre-medical studies. I also spent a semester in Spain, taking all classes in Spanish at a Spanish university. After graduation, I went to Africa for six months."

"My goal has always been to have the students understand the “mysteries” of math. While they are learning the concepts, they are simultaneously feeling increased confidence and empowerment. During my tutoring career I have worked with a diverse group of students, each with their own set of challenges. Patience and the development of a rapport with the students have enabled them to overcome these hurdles. The improvement in scores that these students obtain is a motivator to them and a great sense of reward to me personally. ."

"That experience led me to many more international jobs. I've lived and worked overseas for over 10 years in Thailand, Hong Kong and London. At each stop along the way I've been privileged to be known as a reliable resource for those needing assistance with their English. Native speakers and ESL students alike.

"Over the course of the year, to see the transformation a student undergoes as he/she gains the confidence to take up the challenge of the subject matter is very inspiring. I enjoy being part of this process, and watching how the empowerment the student develops translates into empowerment in other facets of his/her studies and life. I place high value on addressing each student's individual learning style and personality. With all my students I "Meet Them Where They Are," and together we move forward in the process, taking material that was once overwhelming and turning it into an engaging discovery.." ...
