"I am currently living in Manhattan, where I am an intern at the Huffington Post. In my spare time I love to walk around the city, check out concerts, write poetry, and try new foods. I have worked in private tutoring for almost four years with a special focus on critical reading and writing skills and college application essays. My teaching style is laid-back and creative: I work hard to frame the material in a way that is interesting to my students and appeals to their interests, and I base my methods around what works best for them." ...

"My experience working and teaching students in other countries and cities has only serve to further my belief that there is no one 'right' model, yet more individualized instruction most often yields the greatest success. Learning is comprised of many components and how we teach our children should be regularly assessed to fit the needs of an evolving society. I have experience teaching and tutoring students with Special Needs, English Language Learners and Gifted and Talented children. Yet regardless of however a child is 'labeled' I believe all children, with the right amount of motivation and interest, can be given tools that will ...

"I competed as a decathlete on the Varsity Track & Field Team and played club rugby while attending, which sparked an interest in personal training immediately after college. I knew that I wanted to go to medical school and would first need to complete the prerequisites, but in the time between undergrad and postbaccalaureate coursework, I worked as a personal trainer. The experience of tailoring plans for the individual and working one-on-one with a client has proved to be invaluable to me as a tutor. While completing the premedical postbaccalaureate at ASU, I tutored several classmates and lab partners in the natural and physical ...
