I am an undergraduate business student at Babson College. For years, I have tutored a variety of subjects from writing to accounting. In high school, I participated in volunteer tutoring through the National Honors Society. Even other involvements, such as coaching the debate team, taught me how to convey information and reach understanding with others. As a college student, I am paid to tutor Accounting and teach entrepreneurship and often find myself running study groups among peers.
Having recently gone through it, I am very familiar with the college admissions process and all its challenges, including AP tests, the PSAT, the SAT, and application essays.
What motivates me is the success of my tutees. Everybody needs help once in a while, and there is no greater feeling than finally understanding a concept you have been struggling with. I understand that no two people learn in the same way, so I emphasize flexibility in my teaching. With some dedication, there is truly no subject that cannot be mastered. Any lesson from me includes tips on note taking, study skills, and test-taking, which I believe are the foundations of academic achievement.
Although I am studying business, I firmly believe in the power of creativity in all its forms. I love reading and writing, graphic design, and even participate in a ceramics workshop. Another passion is, of course, teaching — and it is this passion that I bring to every session, online or in person.

Study Skills and Organization
What is your teaching philosophy?
Adaptability. Everyone has their own unique learning style, and an explanation that works for one person may not work for another. As a teacher, it is important to be able to adapt--from tutee to tutee, from subject to subject, and even from day to day.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Introductions are always in order! Getting well acquainted with a student is fun and helps every subsequent session go smoother. When we dive into the subject, I will focus on discovering the student's learning style and any potential challenges in the material.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
In addition to teaching a specific subject, I try to incorporate study skills into lessons. Whereas helping with a subject is like giving a man a fish, imparting study skills is like teaching a man to fish. Note-taking, test-taking, attentiveness, and self-timing are life skills that will help in every future subject and into a career.
