Hello and thank you for visiting my profile!
Enthusiasm and compassion are the cornerstones of my teaching. My goal in tutoring is to help my students become more successful, confident, and engaged in what they are studying. I love to learn, and I find tutoring very rewarding because I enjoy sharing that love of knowledge with my students. I want to help my students experience education as the wonderful opportunity it is.
I have seven years of experience as a college professor, secondary school teacher, and tutor. During that time, I have worked with a wide variety of students across a wide range of subjects including English
, test prep, social studies
, and humanities.
During my own time in school, I completed my master's degree at Columbia University in one year with a 4.0 grade point average. Before that, I scored above the 90th percentile on both the math and verbal sections of the SAT
and practice GRE
(I was admitted to graduate school before taking the actual GRE). So, my approach to education is grounded in both my professional training and my personal experience.
I have experience assisting students who require extra support, as well as working with advanced students who require a challenge beyond what they are currently doing in class.
I can travel to meet my students in a place convenient for them.
When I work with a student in person, I typically come to that student's home or school, but we could also meet in a library or other location conducive to studying. I usually have availability during the daytime and can meet with students during their study hall or other time during the school day, if that is something their school allows.
I am also available to my students via phone in the event they need help outside of our scheduled time together.
I realize my rate is not the lowest you'll see, but I believe I offer a good value based on my experience and education. I am happy to provide our first session free of charge, so you can get a sense of the quality of my work as a tutor. For subsequent sessions, WyzAnt provides a prepaid discount, and I am able to offer a sliding scale if needed.
Furthermore, It is very important to me that my students and their families feel satisfied with every tutoring session they receive. I would not accept payment for a session where a client felt less than 100% satisfied. Happily, this has never happened, but it will always be my policy.
If you have any questions or would like to set up our complimentary first session, please don't hesitate to contact me.
