" I also have experience tutoring the GRE and the GMAT in a one-on-one setting. My tutoring style is influenced by my background in philosophy. When I teach a math problem, I try to make sure my students understand not only how to solve the problem, but also how to explain the principles and the logic behind the solution. That way they can safely and confidently approach novel problems on their own."

"I have tutored fourth- and fifth-graders in math and peer-edited countless peers' college essays; I have directed youth sports camps and provided support to severely emotionally disturbed high-schoolers. It may sound trite, but I deeply enjoy the intellectual and interpersonal challenge of the teaching experience. While I expect hard work from a student, I am patient above all and listen before I lecture. I specialize in teaching standardized tests (ACT and SAT I and Subject Tests), math and statistics, writing, French, and economics." ...

"I've been studying Latin since I was a freshman in high school, and I love it. I tutored in college, and I have three years experience as a teaching assistant, so I know what college professors are looking for from their students' papers. My approach to tutoring follows the idea of "if you teach a man to fish..." My goal is to teach by helping students come to the correct conclusion on their own, whether that pertains to figuring out the Latin subjunctive, the German use of cases, or writing a decent thesis statement in their mother tongue. If you need help with Latin, German, or English/writing, feel free to contact me!." ...
