"I am a 2009 graduate of Dartmouth College with over a decade of tutoring experience. I have tutored steadily since the age of 13 when I began holding after-school sessions with a few of my peers in algebra. Upon arriving at Dartmouth, I immediately began working with a program called America Reads that places college students in low-income school districts as teachers' aides. While working with America Reads, I gained experience working with elementary-aged children and kids with developmental disabilities.

After receiving my BA, I started SAT tutoring for a small company in Connecticut. With this company I prepared high school students for the SAT I and subject tests including Math II and Biology, even writing the SAT II Biology teaching curriculum for the company. I have a B.A. in Music and am preparing to begin a PhD in Historical Musicology hopefully in the next 3 years. I am qualified to teach high school math, biology, and physics as well as history (American and European), music theory, grammar, English, and introductory German.

I think what sets me apart from other tutors is that I am adaptable in my teaching methods. I genuinely care about seeing my students do well, and I empathize with their hard work; after all, it was not so long ago that I was in their own shoes. So if I see one approach to a topic not working, I can switch gears easily to adapt. Also, I think my enthusiasm tends to show through pretty blatantly, which my students appreciate.

In recent years I have begun working more with high school aged students with IEPs; as a teacher, I personally love the challenge many of these students present, and my students have seen strong results. I am currently available and accepting new students for the Summer/Fall 2013 seasons." less...
