"...in political science and a M.S. in journalism, I am best at helping my students take their academics to the next level in reading, writing, and essay composition.

"I'm a high school math teacher in South Bronx. I have been a private tutor for the last ten years now in Math (through Pre-Calculus), Literature (American, British, grammar), SAT I (Math, Verbal, Writing), and SAT II (Math I and II, Literature). Before moving to New York, I ran a private tutoring company based out of Rhode Island where I created curricula for various standardized exams (ISEE, SSAT, SAT I and II, ACT, MAT, GRE); I also offered college admissions guidance. I believe that the most important part of any tutor-student relationship is the ability for each to relate to the other; the tutor must be able to relate to the student relevant information that makes the material exciting and tangible..."

"...As a result, I became well-educated in both classic literature as well as contemporary literary theory focusing on a variety of topics such as gender, media, class and social structure, and an assortment of other theories and topics (all of which I'd love to chat about if given the opportunity). In my downtime, I love exploring and trying new things (mainly food) and I'm an avid animal lover. Here's some additional trivia about me: I was originally born in Texas (Air Force family) Trying new restaurants is one of my favorite activities Favorite movie: The Right Stuff (that Air Force family clearly had an impact on me...) Favorite book(s): Nothing compares to the Harry Potter series, in my humble opinion Favorite animal: My two golden retrievers, Logan and Skylar (though my cats make a decent bid for this vote) Favorite TV show: Mad Men (nope, my company doesn't make it - but I'm genuinely hooked on this series) I warmly encourage you to contact me! I look forward to meeting you..."

"... Writing can be very intimidating for many students, so I believe in simplifying the process and turing it into a succession of smaller, easier steps that can serve as a model for future projects. I also believe in finding the student's unique learning style and tailoring the sessions in a way that maximizes our time. It is important to not only help students pass their tests or write their reports, but to also arm them with the necessary skills and habits that will allow them to continue to succeed in the future..."

"...I was able to hone in on and developed my own pedagogical content knowledge and curricular knowledge as I formulated my own unique teaching philosophy. During this time, I was also selected by my school's department to write and publish curriculum for the Taft Institute, with the objective in teaching students how to become active and informed citizens. For example, as a means to achieve these objectives, I was selected to teach a lesson about the electoral process during an intensive seminar..."

"...Similarly, I enjoy tutoring for the MCAT as I understand how stressful an experience it can be and feel that any guidance I can provide in making the experience less stressful is invaluable. In tutoring, I believe that every student learns differently and pinpointing the most effective learning strategies as well as personal strengths and weaknesses is key to developing a successful individualized plan. While standardized tests such as the MCAT can be extraordinarily taxing, I believe there are certain ways to alleviate anxiety associated with it and approach the test feeling calm, prepared, and confident..."
