" I have worked with students at many different ability levels and with a variety of special needs in reading, writing, math, science, social studies, organization and social-emotional skills. I have taught students in a whole class format, in small groups, and one on one. I am able to scaffold material at various levels and tailor lessons to meet individual needs. Before I started teaching full time, I did a great deal of tutoring, and I also worked as an assistant teacher at a pre-school. I love teaching and working with children and teenagers." ...

" In general, I try to relate new material that I am tutoring back to concepts that a student has already grasped so that unfamiliar material takes on a familiar character. Furthermore, I try to have a student do some writing, some reading, and some discussion in each lesson, and in this way engage the main three modes of learning. That being said, I try to modify my teaching style to best benefit the type of student I am tutoring. Over the last year, I have been teaching test-prep for the ACT, SAT, and High School Entrance Exams, as well as high school writing; US History; Literature; and Chemistry, and all grade-school subjects." ...

"I believe that the fundamental responsibility and challenge in teaching is to transmit one's own enthusiasm and curiosity to students. In my experience, once students are curious and engaged, teaching is much more effective and enjoyable. I have found this to be successful in lecture, laboratory, and individual tutoring settings. I am currently an adjunct lecturer in the physics department at the College of Staten Island, and I am working on my Ph.D."
