About Adam

Hello everyone,

My name is Adam and I am passionate about teaching a variety of subjects to all kinds of learners. Over the past two and a half years, I've helped hundreds of students achieve their academic goals. Recently, I graduated from the University of Connecticut with an English degree. With my experience, I am confident I'll be able to help you reach outstanding academic success.
Throughout my life, I've enjoyed helping people with subjects such as Math, Writing, SATs, Test-Taking, Public Speaking, Theatre, and many more. I have ample tutoring experience in all of these subjects. I'm happy to meet you and help you succeed in whatever way you wish to. As your tutor, I will make it my priority to help you achieve your goals.
I think it's important for me, as your tutor, to realize the ways in which you learn best. Everyone learns differently, so no student can be taught in the same way. That is the benefit of one-on-one instruction rather than classroom learning; we can really focus on your needs as a student. I will also do my best to inspire your interest in the subject, because I know that greater student interest inspires greater learning.

I'm excited about helping you learn your subject of choice. Let's make it happen!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chess

I have played chess since I was 3 or 4 years old. My dad, a past chess master, taught me as much as he could. When I was nine, I won 1st place in the state chess championship in the lower division. I love the game and am happy to teach all I know.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently studying to be a high school teacher, although I used to be a Childhood Education major in college. I have lots of experience with elementary-age children. I spent time working with 5th graders in New York City and I also was a camp counselor for two summers. I like working with kids because I know how pivotal a teacher is to their development.

Theatre

I have been performing in and producing theatrical shows since the age of six. In high school, I had the opportunity to run my town's non-profit theatre troupe as director/producer. I led casts and crews of 40+ for two summer musicals. Because of my experience in acting, directing, producing, and writing, I am capable to teach theatre arts on a variety of levels. Plus, it is a passion of mine.
