"I lived in Brazil for six months where I taught English to elementary school kids, and after that experience, I realized that teaching and tutoring give you some of the best feelings you could ever have. Watching someone learn, understand, and grow and knowing that you've helped in that process is incredibly fulfilling. My teaching style is very easy to work with. I like to see what the students know first, then work with them in a way that builds upon their strengths while tackling their weaknesses, so that they never feel left behind or confused." ...

"Like most poli-sci majors, I intend to go to law school and someday practice law as a career. Getting there necessitates taking the LSAT, an exam that is quite different from other standardized tests in that it focuses on a singular skill set: formal logic. But learning about the logical doesn't always come across as logical. That's where I can help fill the void and facilitate the learning process, making what may seem like a daunting task much more manageable and conquerable."

"While I was studying writing at Illinois Wesleyan University, I volunteered as a tutor in elementary schools, junior highs, high schools, and preschools. I've done a lot of work with bilingual (native Spanish-speaking)students. For the past 3 years, I've worked in the educational publishing industry -- in other words, I write text books. This has given me great experience seeing what goes into testing students; I know what they should know at various grade levels, I'm familiar with LOTS of pedagogical techniques (and have seen what works and what doesn't), and I've had a lot of experience "leveling" text and lessongs." ...

" I've been working with children since I taught Sunday school in High School. I continued at college by volunteering during homework time at a local homeless shelter and working at the college writing center.
