"This belief informs my teaching style; I act as a guide for students rather than someone dispensing information. Nothing is more enjoyable than the look on a student's face when he or she has just realized that he or she can solve a problem without anyone's help. When I'm not tutoring, I love walking through New York for design inspiration and taking carpentry, metalworking, and illustration classes.."

My favorite part of the writing process is workshopping with other authors. Peer-editing is very valuable, and my natural inclination toward peer-to-peer guidance led to my interest in tutoring. I love exchanging knowledge with students."

"I want the student to be able to teach their way through solving a problem so they can apply the fundamentals in other places.

"One of my mentor teachers was fond of saying, "Teach the child, not the subject", meaning that the student comes first - before the curriculum, before the test scores, before the tutor. I've learned to incorporate this ideology into my own teaching practice by differentiating instruction for each of my students.

Once a student knows how to learn, whole new worlds open for them and the actual material is a matter of course.." ...
