I'm currently a PhD student at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I'm also a seasoned AP reader for the Language & Comp exam, where I've gained a lot of insight into test development and implementation. As a former high school English teacher, I have broad experience with test prep and have worked one-on-one with students from diverse backgrounds and skill levels.

As I've navigated the various levels of the academic world, the most important thing I've come to realize is that nobody achieves success without the support of others. This is why I'm a tutor. I want my students to understand that their current performance is simply a point on a learning curve, not an ultimate indication of their natural abilities, and all they need is someone to guide them to the next level. I want them to view being wrong as a valuable opportunity to learn, not something to be ashamed of. And I want them to know that being smart means asking questions, not answering them.

As I work with students, I find it's most helpful to talk through the project, whether it's preparing for a test or writing an essay, to find out where the points of confusion are or what skills are necessary to get the best result. From there, we'll go through skill-building exercises and talk about the connections between the individual skills and the project at hand. Ultimately, the goal is to give students the skills not only to complete the immediate task, but also the self-awareness to tackle future projects.
