"I became fluent in Italian over the course of my junior year as an exchange student in Rome, and since graduation, I've gone back to Italy multiple times for work. I have also lived in Istanbul, where I taught English as a foreign language and discovered my love for teaching. I try to set specific goals with my students, and to work in a focused way toward these goals. Whether we are working out a math problem or deducing the meaning of an unfamiliar word, I encourage students to write down their thought process and to try to imagine more than path to the solution." ...

"It was an amazing experience, and I've been teaching in some form or another ever since. When I came back to the states, I worked as a tutor to help underprivileged students prepare for the NY State Regents Exams. Since graduating from Brown I've been working as a tutor in the New York City area, prepping high school juniors for the SAT and ACT exams, and high school freshman for the SSAT. When I'm not tutoring I'm directing, shooting, and editing short films."

"I think that the one-on-one attention that tutoring provides students can definitely make the difference between passing and failing. When I tutor, my main goal is to break down convoluted topics to the major concept. In doing so, I help students see the main idea of what they are doing, remove any unnecessary information, and provide procedures that will work every time. In doing so, I have seen my students' grades improve drastically in the past."

"Currently, I work as a research scientist at The Mount Sinai Hospital studying pediatric immunology and biochemistry. I will be conducting research until I begin medical school in Fall 2013.

My experiences as a tutor, team leader, published researcher, and NCAA athlete have taught me to form strong bonds with those I work with. I hope to share my passion for science and inspire others as I tutor. I plan to ...

"In addition to teaching economics at the high school I also taught various other elective courses to elementary and middle school students at Wheeler. I also have experience as a volunteer SAT tutor for underprivileged students with "Let's Get Ready!" in Mt. Vernon, NY. From these two disparate experiences I learned that teaching the most inquisitive pupil and teaching the most reluctant student can be equally challenging and rewarding."

" My favorite subjects to tutor include English as a Second Language, Writing, Spanish, Social Studies, Art, Computer Coding and Design, and Math. 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)." ...
