Tutoring Style and/or Experience

During my time at New York University, I majored in social work, focusing heavily on child care, academics and welfare. Now, as I am earning my Master's at NYU, I plan to continue my work with children and young adults.

I have tutored elementary, middle and high school students, and am very comfortable with all subjects within those grades. No class is too big or small, as I've tutored classes with 15 students to private lessons one-on-one. My strongest subjects are English, Math and Writing, specifically in vocabulary enrichment. My students have varied from talented individuals to international students who needed additional support learning English. One of my students came directly from China with very poor English skills. After I tutored him throughout his Sophomore year of high school, he scored 5s on 10 AP exams -- including English, made the honor roll and was titled valedictorian of his senior class. We still keep in touch, and it's rewarding to see how he's grown in his conversational skills and as a person.
