" When I tutor, I feel that I am able to empathize with my student’s frustrations and this establishes a bond of trust. From there, I am able to motivate my students to do their homework with a new positive attitude. Of course discipline is also of the utmost importance, as I sometimes have to become a taskmaster and gently prod my students to stay focused and explore their work from a vantage point of curiosity rather than boredom, which I have found to be the best strategy to get them interested in their work.."

" It is my personal belief that a tutor must adapt to the learning style of their student. I tailor each session to suit the individual’s personality, interests, and academic needs. While I am able to sit down for a traditional session to explain a concept, I am also able to design creative and interactive lessons for both young and mature learners to break up the monotony we sometimes find in learning (especially if the student has been in class all day). I am passionate about teaching and have a flair for doing it with creativity and plenty of energy.." ...

"Some of my interests are health and exercise, current events, eating, sleeping, soccer, volleyball, swimming, frisbee, and trying to resurrect my high school track days. My first tutoring position was with a 7th grade student who had trouble keeping up in class due to a mild learning difficulty. This experience developed in me a great deal of patience and an ability to creatively try to explain concepts when it seemed that mere repetition wasn't working. With that student, I gained experience tutoring up to junior high level math, high school science, english, history, as well as SAT verbal reasoning prep." ...
