Christopher "I can help you or your child with writing skills, critical reading, and test-taking abilities. I have taught at the middle school, high school, and college levels, and I have a proven record of success in helping students on a one-to-one basis achieve their goals. My teaching approach is very much tailored to each student's individual needs. I'll take the time to know you and what you want to learn before the tutoring begins, so as not to waste your time going over things you already know. I firmly believe that writing, reading, and test-taking are skills that can be learned by anyone and that personal, one-to-one instruction is the best way for students to go beyond what they are able to learn in school..."
Taylor "I love working with kids and I really enjoy helping someone to understand something in a new manner. I think that learning some of the subjects can be boring but I know how to liven the material up in a manner that is relatable/ easier to understand. I have been a camp counselor in the past so I have some experience working with kids; I am very patient and I was always someone in school that could turn a long tedious problem/ information into something that I remembered forever.."

Beau "True education is a leading forth from within, not a putting in from without. All things but none too much, being well-rounded is the key. Problems are to be explored, not simply solved. Success erases all failures.."
Rodrigo "...My great grandparents had come to Chile from Germany; thus both my father and grandmother used to talk to me in German when I was growing up, in addition to my native language, Spanish. Once I moved to the USA, I won a scholarship from my German class in my senior year of high school. During college, I started tutoring students in German and Spanish as well, especially in grammar. At this point in time I realized I could help students in both of these languages. In addition I have taken Spanish grammar courses at Montclair State University, thanks to which I have been able to help my fellow classmates. Some of my hobbies are soccer, basketball, and hanging out with my friends..."

I earned my PhD in sociology at Columbia University, where I also worked as an instructor, at the School of International and Public Affairs..."
