"I grew up in suburban New York and though I was a very creative and imaginative person, my main priority has and always will be academia. I learned the value of education at an early age.

I am so proud of this and thankful at the same time to my parents and teachers/professors. Moreover, I'm committed to sharing my passion for education with students striving to achieve their academic potential.I'm looking forward to meeting you and serving your tutoring needs!." ...

"The doors flung wide in undergrad--though for years, well-landscaped, defined and thoroughly explored disciplines taught with a professor's focus, but basic and broad enough for Gen Ed basic requirements--each new corridor with mysterious intrigues and sinuous byways, though for the exigencies of remedial courses I did not revisit many of those curiosities. Good professors often accomplish the feat of generating eager students, creating new curiosities. In undergrad, outside your major, there's a diversity of blueprints in spin-offs founded on the rudiments of disciplines, with a focus, but hardly reaching better depths ...

"I graduated with my Bachelors in Literature this June, but I’ve stuck with tutoring because I love engaging with students and figuring out the best way to make information click for their unique learning style. When a student finally feels understood by an instructor, he or she completely sprints ahead with the material. I’m strongest at helping students craft essays and strengthen their understanding of English. I learned to be flexible while working at a “drop-in” tutoring lab, never knowing what to expect."

"I specialize in children with ADHD and learning disabilities and basically every child who has seen learning as more of a chore than an amazing opportunity for exploration and discovery. I am not satisfied with simply having my A students (gracefully) slave through each school day or having a client begrudgingly raise his or her C- to a B+ after poking his or her anemic brain repeatedly with a stick. For me, the biggest reward as a mentor is seeing the look of awe in their faces after kindling the fire that fuels their curiosity and inspires them to learn about the world that surrounds them (while still managing to boost them up to the top of their ...
