Tutor Personal Information

Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I've been tutoring since I was in 6th grade. I am currently a Junior at NYU (New York University).

Organization and a positive mental attitude are my ethos.

I love getting absorbed into the material with whoever I'm working with, so that it feels like a team effort of completing a specific objective. This way, I can manage my input, so that the student becomes entirely independent in both their studies and academic performance.

I've worked with several student on the Upper East Side and have, as a direct result of daily tutoring, aided in raising their achievements by 2 letter grades. (From a C to an A).

My work with pre-school and kindergarten children has also been very rewarding, as we worked together to take them to the linguistic level they needed to be at in order to be absorbed into the NYC public school system. The program was called Jumpstart. You can check it out online, it was truly a great wat for me to get hands- on experience, not to mention the contless hours of formalized training.

I've also worked with my peers...editing papers and providing study guides for college exams.

I'm a very friendly person and am willing to meet a wide range of needs. I'd love to help you out, and learn some for myself along the way!
