" When I tutor, I feel that I am able to empathize with my student’s frustrations and this establishes a bond of trust. From there, I am able to motivate my students to do their homework with a new positive attitude.

"I believe that fostering strong written and verbal communication skills among younger generations is invaluable for a couple of important reasons. First, because I see reading and writing as incredible tools for self expression and exploration, and second, because I recognize the necessity of well-developed written communication skills for all kinds of professional paths.
