I'd love to help you or your child succeed in meeting their goals, whether that is getting into a top school or helping land a dream job.
I am a dedicated, patient, and experienced Science, GRE, TOEFL, SAT, ESL, College Counseling, Writing, and Music tutor. Many tutors have a mechanical approach to teaching. Instead, I help students learn to think, be adaptable, and "learn to learn." Teaching and learning are lifelong gifts that should be challenging and enjoyable, and I will show you how during our tutoring sessions.
I believe in always being prompt, reliable, courteous, approachable, friendly, and professional with my students. If you've ever been frustrated by a disrespectful or unprofessional tutor, I can understand how upsetting that is. I guarantee that as my student you will feel respected and treated with the highest level of professionalism.
My educational and work background is deep and well-rounded. I have a Master's degree in Biology and Ecology, as well as in Music. I also have a TEFL (Teach English as a Foreign Language) certificate from Windsor College in the UK. Additionally, I am certified to teach middle and high school Biology and Earth Science in Massachusetts.
I have been teaching ESL for five years in several schools in the Boston area, as well as tutoring private ESL students. I have taught children and adults at all levels. I have a great deal of experience teaching the TOEFL, SAT, and GRE exams, and I scored a perfect score on the GRE verbal section. I also worked as a course writer and curriculum designer for a fantastic science education nonprofit, and I especially excel at helping ESL students write and edit academic writing, including personal statements and research papers. I have written a published paper for the journal Global Environment, and my academic research forms part of the Ecology course curriculum for CIEE, the leading international educational organization in the world.
I'm also a professional musician with a Master's degree in performance. I have taught guitar, beginning piano, and bass for over 20 years and I can confidently teach all ages of music students. A large amount of research has demonstrated that learning music provides huge benefits in learning other subjects, and in my experience this is definitely true. I would even go so far to say that I have a "musical" approach to teaching all subjects.
I truly enjoy teaching and helping students meet their fullest potential. I very much look forward to meeting you and helping you meet your goals for yourself or your child.
