" My teaching style features visual learning, mnemonics, and hierarchical organization of material. I find that hierarchically cataloguing information by topic and sub-topic helps students retain material, as students are not simply memorizing, but are understanding how concepts relate to one another. More personally, my hobbies include tennis, movies, and travel. I also love trivia and 90's music."

" In high school, I worked with my principal to launch MenTu, a mentoring and tutoring program for local elementary school students. Through one on one attention we were able to strengthen the students' math and English homework scores, meanwhile building positive and reinforcing relationships that strengthened their confidence. Subsequently, I was invited to work as a tutor of all subjects at my magnet high school, where I continued to support students, reinforcing basics and providing extra enrichment as needed. Having coached myself to excellence in the ACT, SAT, and GRE, I am available as an instructor for test taking strategy." ...

"In 2011 I began working as an assistant teacher at an after school program in my home town of Chappaqua, which has given me a head-start on lesson planning and class management. As a tutor, in a one on one situation, my goal is to find out where the client is, where they want to be, and map out a plan to get them there. I try and make it fun or relevant. As a middle school student, I had tutoring to help keep me focused (as an AD/HD student, I need more structure than most people) and it was invaluable. When we're young, adults stress how important school is to our futures." ...

"The great teacher inspires." ~ William Arthur Ward As a tutor of ten years, I have come across almost every type of student. Regardless of the subject, each student has helped me refine not only my teaching skill, but my ability to manage and inspire students. Teaching is a challenge. Each student brings a different set of strengths, weakness, and a unique way of understanding subject matter. When I began tutoring, I thought my job was to demonstrate how to use a formula or help a student memorize a set of facts."

For me, success is all about developing the right working relationship with my students and helping them discover what they enjoy about biology.
