Hi Tutoring World! It has been a while since I posted due to my busy tutoring schedule! A few of my students have graduated this December so I am available for adding on a few extra hours here and there. After a year of being on the WyzAnt site, I have finally gotten my first review!

Thanks to all for a great 2012 Fall semester and looking forward to a sunny Spring... See you in May!
It has been a few weeks since classes have started up and tutoring is going strong! I am working with a student independently, outside of Wyzant, and it feels like coming home from a long vacation.

I am still waiting to hear back from the college I tutor for as to how many students are needing tutoring this semester but hoping to get a good mix of first years and upperclassmen. Yesterday morning was the first “see my breath” morning we have had in New England so Fall must be right around the corner! I am looking forward to a BC vs. Virginia Tech football game this October with friends as well as some game watches with my Louisville Alumni group in Boston.

Our students are coming back!!! Yes, folks, we are nearing the September 1 mass migration of college students back to the Boston area and I couldn’t be more excited. The beginning of the Fall is always a nostalgic time for people who love and work in higher ed. Not only are the steamy, hot days of summer behind us, but we finally get to see all of our planning, creation and brainstorming of new ideas and programs actually go into effect. Super cool feeling. We are also invigorated by our new first time students. We see first years bumbling around campus trying to appear that they aren’t lost, although we know that they are, we see parents driving away from the res halls leaving little Johnny or Sarah for the first time, and we see the smiles, excitement, and... read more
