"... My forte as a tutor is my patience. I also have a talent for engaging students by demonstrating my own passion for the subject matter. I have a sixth sense for the right approach for each student and present the material in a way that holds his/her attention..."

"...Later, I moved on to tutoring students in a more structured environment in subjects involving biology, physics, and more advanced mathematics such as calculus. Although I do follow a very straightforward curriculum, my teaching style is more adaptive than it is rigid. Private tutoring offers the benefit of sitting down one-on-one with a student so that I can zero in on problem areas and misunderstood concepts..."

"... I have been substitute teaching for the past seven and a half years. My favorite subjects to tutor are Math and Science; Science is my passion, but Math is something I seem to be able to “make sense of” for students. I like to teach 3rd-7th grade especially because it is crucial that students learn those concepts very well in order to cumulatively build upon them in high school, and I like teaching them in concrete ways. A quotation by Erasmus, "The main hope of a nation lies in the proper education of its youth," may closest resemble my disposition concerning education..."

"...To me, written expression is one of the greatest art forms, one that requires mastery of everything from vocabulary and punctuation to grammar and structural organization. The flip side of writing, of course, is reading. There is nothing like being able to read a passage and truly grasp its meaning...whether you are looking for information, enlightenment, or something in between..."

"...I've taught middle school students basic and advanced algebra, geometry, and trigonometry, as well as tutored high school students on Precalculus and Calculus. I have equally strong experience teaching and tutoring all three sections of the SAT.

"...I particularly enjoy tutoring organic and biochemistry because they’re the building blocks for other biology courses, and for the world around us. It’s hard to make atoms and molecules significant when they’re presented alone, but if you can put them in context by connecting them to things that are visible and tangible, these abstract concepts become a new way of understanding how life works! I’m excited by the subjects I have the privilege of teaching, and I think that’s what makes my tutoring style special. I really believe that anyone can enjoy learning about the most complicated topics as long as they have someone who’s enthusiastic about explaining them in comprehensible ways..."

"...As an undergraduate, I was a teaching assistant for introductory Russian, and worked with students both in group and in individual sessions. My academic background is varied, and thus I am able to tutor students in a range of topics, including Environmental Science, Biology, Psychology, Statistics, French, Russian, English Language and Literature, and exam preparation (SAT, ACT, AP and GRE). My favorite topics to tutor in are Biology and Environmental Science, since I love sharing my interest in the science and using it to help students better understand and enjoy these exciting fields. My teaching philosophy is best summarized as "show not tell" -- I find that guiding students such that they can arrive at the answers themselves, rather than just explaining the problem, helps them fully realize their potential for success..."
