"I have been tutoring for years - usually for community service - in an array of subjects, but my passion is in the structure, mechanics, and analysis of language (both English and Spanish). I lived in Spain for a summer and have also spent time in Mexico. I love to learn and to teach others. I'm not quick to tell students the right answer; instead, I want my students to develop critical thinking skills that can be transferred to many realms of life."

"I began tutoring ESL at a summer camp with international students. I taught group ESL lessons, with a wide range of abilities, for kids aged 5 - 14. Engaging the campers in games, both outdoor and indoor, as well as projects and inter-active assignments was key for keeping tutoring sessions fun while also developing language skills. I have also tutored individuals in French and English, primarily aiding them after school with homework help, but also teaching new and more challenging concepts to keep them ahead of their class."

"I am a certified math teacher currently teaching Algebra and Geometry to tenth graders in the Bronx. Though I truly love teaching, my path to becoming a math teacher is a bit different from that of most math teachers. Prior to teaching, I practiced criminal law for several years. While law school prepared me well for drafting legal documents and writing complicated briefs, it did not provide me with a career for which I had passion."

"As an educator, I have taught English and Playwriting to students entering the 10th Grade in Downtown Los Angeles, and I currently mentor student playwrights from the Harvard-Westlake School. I work in New York as a playwright, actor, and director, but I spent my time at Brown University studying English, Philosophy, History, Political Science, Critical Theory, and Comparative Literature. Writing is what I do, and I am especially well-trained when it comes to writing the academic essay. I treat tutoring the same way I treat directing actors: there is no one-size-fits-all approach, so I've learned to identify the specific ...

"Science, medicine, and foreign languages are all subjects I have always excelled in and I've been involved in tutoring and helping students for as long as I can remember. I tutored Spanish and Biology in High School, and at Brandeis University, I expanded my repertoire and taught some French, Chemistry, Anatomy, and Physiology. I hope to become a pediatrician not just because of the fancy doctor title, but because I genuinely want to help kids in need, especially those who grew up underprivileged, much like myself. My tutoring style is very hands on. I like evaluating problem areas for students and helping them with those while ...

"I have been a tutor before I was ever paid to do it. A straight-A high school student, I was always asked to help my brother with his studies, which didn't come as easily to him. When I was a peer tutor at Harvard University, I discovered how enjoyable and rewarding it was to help other people understand our school's Freshman computer requirement and how I could use my knowledge, skills and tricks to help them break down and overcome a daunting goal. I was an officer in the U.S."

"From listening to my grandmother’s folktales as a child, to reading for pleasure and learning as a student, to writing with clarity and insight in my professional career, I look for the story that lies at the heart of a written work. 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 ...
