"I enjoyed the work so much I moved to Thailand and taught English in Songkhla, a small town near the Malaysian border. 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. My approach is simple: I move at your pace until I'm confient you understand the material."

"In these positions, I have helped to provide free tutoring to grade schoolers working on their homework and developing literacy skills, high school students preparing for the Regents and the SATs, and working young people studying to obtain their GEDs.

" As a tutor, my goal is to not only provide the student with strategies and confidence to perform optimally on exams and college applications, but to imbue a lifelong motivation to engage in reading for meaning, communicate ideas effectively and write with clarity and impact. I begin by asking my student to write on a personal topic for ten minutes. Together, we read what the student has written in order that I may assess the student’s areas of strength and those that need development. From there, whether reading English literature, studying world history or writing a personal college essay, we seek to identify and understand the story or ...

"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've always found it incredibly rewarding to inspire my students to achieve their maximum potential and watch them attain newfound confidence in subject areas they previously dreaded. In recent years, I've focused on tutoring high school math and science. I also work with students on Spanish, ISEE, SSAT, SAT Prep, and collegiate level courses. As a chemical engineering student at UPenn, I learned the importance of having a great tutor firsthand. Some of my professors were not that interested or particularly talented at teaching the material, so I turned to the TAs, who were graduate students in my major." ...
