I have experience tutoring at all levels, from elementary school through college, and in a wide variety of subjects, from biology and math to reading and writing.

"...I think education is absolutely essential to shaping a person’s character, opinions, and success in life which is why I enjoy tutoring, and more importantly, mentoring students. I've previously tutored the SAT and really enjoy cracking the Critical Reading and Writing sections of the exam – because I love reading and writing. I tutored Economics in college, both for classes and on an individual basis, and it is also one of my favorite subjects..."

"... I have primarily worked with high school and college level students but have past experience outside of academia working with younger children as well. What makes me a great math and physics tutor is that I am extremely patient, and capable of teaching the same topic several different ways. I have found this to work well in my students favor because not everyone thinks the same or works at the same speed..."

"... I am currently working for the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program at Goucher College, where I teach Chemistry and MCAT courses and lead small group and individual tutoring sessions in Biology, Organic Chemistry, and Physics. Although I enjoy tutoring a range of topics, I am particularly enthusiastic about Chemistry, as I enjoy helping students realize the applications of this science to every day life, and MCAT preparation, as I love watching my students actualize their goals. It is my hope that in working with students I can provide them with the tools necessary to approach any subject matter critically, improving their ability to solve problems and increasing their intellectual curiosity and overall love of learning..."

"I have extensive tutoring experience in the past. Before law school and after college, I worked as an assistant director of a Learning Center, and a big part of my job was working on test prep with students.

"...I like to inject fun and humor into learning and am the product of some really excellent educators who I like to think inform my teaching style. My tutoring experience began nearly four years ago when I began working with an organization that helps prepare under-served students for the SAT and the college admissions process. I enjoyed breaking students' preconceived notions about what they could and could not do, and I value the interpersonal relationships with my students that I was able to create and maintain to this day. I graduated with my undergrad in 2012 with degrees in International Relations and Spanish, and I was awarded Distinguished Honors in International Relations..."

"...But I also found teaching opportunities outside of academics, and I feel that these had an even greater influence on my teaching style. I became involved in Georgetown’s all-volunteer, student-run ambulance service, and I spent many hours teaching practical skills to EMT students. Once these students became certified and joined the organization, I spent many more hours creating and implementing training exercises to sharpen their skills. This experience taught me to instruct with patience and care, because any oversight could have serious consequences. Much of the rest of my time was spent teaching in a more relaxed environment, a traditional Greek dance group..."

One of the ways I have accomplished this is by complementing my expertise with an abundant amount of support and encouragement..."
