My goal is to turn students' weaknesses into strengths and to enable students to get the grade they want in exam preparation. I believe in guiding rather than instructing; by leading students on a path of discovery to learn, retain and apply, in order to avoid making the same mistakes twice. Students are responsible for their own learning which is to say that firstly, hard graft is required to acquire a vocabulary base substantive to pass SAT. Secondly it is also required to consistently appl... [more]

Sciences, Test Prep, English & Math, Literature, and Biology

I have personally experienced great success in academic literature evaluations like the English Literature AP exam where I scored a 5. Additionally, having taken numerous literature classes in high school and college with diverse themes, I understand how to relate and synthesize information for students to best grasp and learn literary analysis and similar concepts. My passion for teaching was founded by my own experience as a student. Throughout my academic career, the challenges I encountered refined my own approach to understanding subjects, and the ensuing success after overcoming such obs [more]

The Art of Language and the Language of Art

Between seven years of higher education and 15 years of professional experience, I have read, analyzed, researched, and studied over 100 different dramatic works. One of the more valuable techniques I had the opportunity to learn during my time in college is a sort of close-reading through the lens of personal associations. Applied to theatre arts, it's a way to unlock the deeper meaning of a script with an eye towards making concrete production decisions. That's not the full use of its applicability, however, because it may be applied to any sort of text and, when contextualized through bi [more]

I prefer to work with families and students who value education; I'm not so interested in assisting someone whose only concern is passing tomorrow's test. A student who insists on simply being told the steps to solve a particular homework problem, who is... [more]
