"I've also helped students excel in history, mathematics and particularly enjoy helping students exceed their own scoring expectations on the SAT. As a graduate of the Oberlin College Creative Writing Program, I believe that every writing assignment, from historical essays to Japanese poetry to science term papers, has the possibility to enthrall and fascinate. I believe that all writing is creative writing, and that in every assignment can be approached with equal measures of enthusiasm and diligence. I am an excellent teacher of the building blocks of language, including phonics and grammar." ...

" For the past two years I taught mathematics at the middle and high school level as a Teach For America corp member in the Dallas Independent School District.

"This has given me great experience seeing what goes into testing students; I know what they should know at various grade levels, I'm familiar with LOTS of pedagogical techniques (and have seen what works and what doesn't), and I've had a lot of experience "leveling" text and lessongs. That means that I know how to adapt a student's in-school curriculum to match their particular ability level and learning styles. I truly believe that the best way to help students learn is to do what works best for them -- if a student is struggling with reading, I try to get to know the student to learn not only the academic troubles he or she is having but also his ...

"If your student needs any help in Language Arts, request me, you won't be disappointed. I've been reading ever since I started reading those little pamphlet books like "See Dick Run."

" I also served as a mentor throughout the program. Most recently, through AmeriCorps, I tutored sixth graders in the Summer Bridge Program at Gillespie Elementary School. I assisted students with both math and reading material so that they could progress to the seventh grade. As a tutor, my strongest traits are my patience and my adaptability. I have the ability to think of new ways to describe the same material until my client truly grasps the concept."

"I learned Spanish as a second language, and becoming fluent was one of the most exciting things I have ever done. Helping beginners to feel comfortable with the language is very rewarding. Last, I have worked with so many students who have great ideas, but struggle to write them down effectively in the ways that teachers, tests and colleges require. I love to help students represent themselves and their ideas well through essay-writing, and I focus especially on ACT, SAT and college applications.."
