"As someone who was not a natural language-learner, I have great patience and can easily see and predict potential stumbling blocks. However, after studying Russian for four years and living in post-Soviet countries for 7 months, I can happily say that I speak Russian at a high conversational level. I want to help others advance as well. I'm also eager to work with English-language learners. I will work best with Russian-language speakers but am open to working with other foreign-language students if they are at an intermediate level. Finally, I'm looking to work with students who need help with English." ...

"When I work with a student for the first time, I like to begin with the very basics of the subject to ensure the individual has a proper grasp of the fundamentals. Students can often be hesitant to admit they are unsure of concepts that were taught in previous years because they feel they are expected to know them. However, without a proper understanding of the simple facets of a subject, the more complicated features can never be truly internalized. I have always enjoyed explaining concepts to other people, and find it works best when I relate the subject to a personal interest of the student." ...

" As a tutor, my goal is to not only provide the student with strategies and confidence to perform optimally on exams and college applications, but to imbue a lifelong motivation to engage in reading for meaning, communicate ideas effectively and write with clarity and impact. I begin by asking my student to write on a personal topic for ten minutes. Together, we read what the student has written in order that I may assess the student’s areas of strength and those that need development. From there, whether reading English literature, studying world history or writing a personal college essay, we seek to identify and understand the story or ...

"I try to go above and beyond in helping my students to truly understand and connect with the subject I am helping them with. I believe it is very important for me to be able to relate with my students, therefore, I reach out to them on a personal level in such a way to understand why they are having difficulty in the subject and explain to them how I would try to overcome any mental block.

" I specialize in test prep, and assisting students in improving their writing skills. I also work with students in history and general homework help. I am a published writer, with articles in national and local publications and Yahoo! Finance. I wrote about legal and financial issues and discovered that I really enjoy the law - so I moved to Williamsburg, Virginia for three years and studied at the College of William & Mary, the country's oldest law school. During the week, I am a practicing attorney who has taken and passed three bar exams - each on the first attempt. I believe that any student can achieve and that no one style fits everyone." ...
