I believe every student has the capacity to succeed if given both encouragement and the tools to learn. Every failure is an opportunity for growth, both academically and personally.
I am a graduate of New York University with a B.A. in Political Science. I've tutored students through the America Reads/America Counts program in college and as an independent tutor in subjects including essay writing, SAT prep, elementary math, phonics, and English as a second language. My style is to adapt to the needs of students and their personalities rather than prescribe a catch-all approach. Coming from an academically high-pressure background (I am a graduate of an International Baccalaureate program high school), I excel at meeting the needs of students trying to succeed in similar environments.
