About Genny

I am an undergraduate student entering my second year at Fordham University, and I intend to study political science, philosophy, and Italian. I am interested in helping students get ahead and maintain academic motivation for the upcoming school year!

I have over four years of experiencing tutoring students of all ages in a variety of subjects. I tutored young children (3-5th grade) in common core math and ELA for two years, and throughout high school I tutored many other high school students in chemistry, US history, Italian, and physics. At the college level, I will begin tutoring students in Italian in September.

I love tutoring because I love being able to connect with other kids to help them overcome their academic difficulties. I am patient and am willing to work to find the proper pace for each student. I have found that tutoring as a student myself makes me more approachable, as other students can feel comfortable and confident relating to one of their peers.

I am a Dean's List student at Fordham, as I completed this year with a 3.93 cumulative GPA in primarily writing-intensive courses. I am deeply appreciative of the challenges school brings to each student, and I am excited to share the feeling of satisfaction that comes after working hard in school.

I am friendly, enthusiastic, and eager to help in every way I can.

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.

Italian

I have 4 years of Italian language classes under my belt, as well as two trips to Italy taken during that time period. In high school, I received special subject awards in Italian during each of the three years the class was offered to me, and I received As in both Italian classes I have taken so far in college. I was selected and approved to be a student tutor for the next academic year at my university. Because I did not learn Italian as a first language at home, I believe I can relate to students struggling to learn a second language, and teach them in a way that is most effective and comprehensible to a native English speaker.
