About Lillian

I have always been very passionate about the classical ideas of education. I live with it, but standardized testing drives me bonkers. Although many people might believe that the liberal arts have become outdated and useless in our technologically-driven modern age, I must beg to disagree. Getting a liberal arts education at UF has been one of the most exciting decisions of my life and one that I feel has transformed me in many ways. I have studied literature, mathematics, astronomy, history, and languages which were the pillars of education. These subjects combined were humanity's ways of discovering the wonders of the world and it's own capabilities.

I am a 3rd year and a resident assistant at the University of Florida and one of the things I do to help my residents (who are mostly freshman) is offer them free tutoring in English. If I catch wind that someone is writing a paper, I'll usually inquire if they need any assistance because I find that sort of thing fun. I think tutoring is very rewarding because you tend to learn as much from your students as they do from you. My father is a history teacher and my mother is a biology teacher. I feel as though I know what it takes, through them, to be a good teacher.

I enjoy tutoring because I love the moment when someone is finally able to harness their own strengths and express themselves fully.

I scored a 720 in Writing and 700 in Reading for the SAT on my first try. These are subjects that I am very comfortable and confident in and I feel I've improved greatly in them during my study at UF these past three years.

My father teaches American History. I don't think there were many days growing up when my father wouldn't mention one new factoid or another over dinner. As a result, I enjoy American History and I know a great deal.

I took piano lessons from the age of 5 to 18. I am still very passionate about piano and I feel I could teach beginner's quite well.

My evenings are free! Thankfully, as an English and Russian major, I don't get a lot of homework (rather I get 20-30 page papers due at the end of the semester). I am very passionate about literature and writing and I believe that I can help you, no matter your current level of comprehension or interest.

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.

English

I scored well on my AP English courses in high school. I also have taken many upper division English courses (many literature classes) at UF and received A grades.
