John "...While I was there, I worked as a teaching assistant for the chemistry department; I prepared solutions and answered an ocean of questions about laboratory technique and chemistry in general. I love math and science in general, but my favorite subjects to teach out of the whole bunch are biology (middle school through MCAT biology and college microbiology) and physics. Math and science are among the most daunting subjects for many students, but they're the most intuitive subjects at their core..."

In private tutoring, I would say I come across as approachable and relaxed, but enthusiastic about the subject I am teaching.

Katie "... Beyond being passionate about language and communication, I believe very strongly in being prepared for standardized testing--I worked hard to have the opportunity to attend the college of my choice, and a large part of that was getting my test scores to be where I needed them. At the end of the day, testing is about logic and reasoning and developing tools to help under pressure is crucial. I like working one-on-one and solving learning puzzles..."

I am good at breaking down larger concepts into more understandable narratives to impart to my students, and I am very astute when it comes to sensing what style of and approach to tutoring is most suited to the student I am working with. I come from a family of teachers and writers, and I love to help students who are struggling academically to re-discover the magic and beauty of learning..."
