"As a tutor, I hope to share not only my knowledge but also the love of learning that my teachers instilled in me as a student. I have personally experienced the difference individual attention can have on a student; seeing teachers sit down and explain a subject to someone who is having difficulties is inspiring! In college, I would get excited not just about learning, but about conquering a subject after having a conversation with one of my professors about a class. Individual attention has such an impact because it allows teachers and tutors to personalize a subject and address the unique needs of the student..."

"...This was hard because every student had different needs and learned at a different speed, but with time and practice I learned to find a balance between the general and the particular needs. I never imagined myself as a teacher, but I had such a great experience as an Italian AT that in 2012 I designed and led a creative writing workshop (in Spanish) and a choreography workshop in an indigenous village between Venezuela and Brazil.
