I graduated with a BA in Economics and a minor in French from Columbia.
I have experience with a wide range of students, varying in age from grade school to adults. Most recently I tutored college test prep (ACT/SAT/SAT II/AP) and college level statistics. In the past I've been a math homework helper for elementary school students, a swim instructor, and led a bilingual workshop in Panama on environmental conservation, which culminated in the awarding of certificate degrees to 12 adult students.
My favorite subjects to tutor are SAT and ACT math. While these are the subjects most students dread, I find that this is where a good tutor can induce the most "Ah ha!" moments because there are so many patterns that can help you ace that test if you know where to look. Helping students conquer these subjects (and become "math people") by identifying and breaking down the methodology is very rewarding.
My philosophy for tutoring has always been:
Some people teach to the test. Others teach to the book. I teach to the individual.
Outside of tutoring my hobbies include yoga, biking, hiking, drawing, crafts, dancing (ballet and salsa are my favorite right now), French cinema, reading (magazines, novels, history), and occasionally skiing.
