" When I was a peer tutor at Harvard University, I discovered how enjoyable and rewarding it was to help other people understand our school's Freshman computer requirement and how I could use my knowledge, skills and tricks to help them break down and overcome a daunting goal. I was an officer in the U.S. Navy, where I learned to lead and teach people from all walks of life, and also saw first-hand how adding inspiration and encouragement helped our whole team do better, and feel better about it. Since then, I've worked primarily as an entertainer, but I have remained a tutor, as well, bringing the empathy and humor that make me a successful ...

"I'm in New York studying theater and voice but miss my science classes and students like crazy! I'm particularly strong in biology but also totally comfortable with chemistry, English and writing, social studies/history, and test prep. As a teacher my style is to help students discover the answers on their own, and become more confident in their ability to use critical thinking. When I'm not tutoring you can find me running or playing with my mutt Franklin!."

" I always try to work from a position of kindness and have a great deal of life-experience that I bring to my tutoring regardless of the subject I am teaching. 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 ...

"It's important to understand the WHY behind something, rather than just the HOW. Sometimes, it can help to relate a difficult concept to a real-life analogy, to draw a diagram, or to make up silly memory devices (King Philip Came Over For Good Spaghetti, anyone??). However, it will always take a lot of hard work, concentration, and practice. It might be a tough journey, but I promise to make it worth the while, and a fun experience. I bring more to the table than just having a solid educational background - my biggest strength is the investment that I will make in a student, to make sure that they succeed." ...
