"In addition to classroom experience, I have ample tutoring experience, as well. I worked as an SAT Verbal/English/Writing tutor at Kaplan for a year, and have offered private tutoring in the Ithaca and surrounding areas in both writing and SAT prep. I've known for years that what I want to do is work with students to teach them, to mentor them and my experience at Cornell and as a local tutor has verified this. I've worked with a variety of ages and populations (elementary schoolers, Ivy league college students, adults with intellectual disabilities, people in prison) in a variety of settings (athletic, academic, mentoring). I can connect with others in meaningful ways. I'm also passionate about writing. I understand writing to be a form of exploration, not a filling in of a template. As a teacher I prompt my students to ask themselves, and endeavor to answer, How do I learn best? This creates an autonomous student who values learning and believes herself capable of growth and mastery. A student who knows how to set goals, manage stress, and maximize memory and retention strategies is well-equipped to be a lifelong learner. I look forward to working with students of any age or ability level, and communicating my knowledge and love of writing and English-related subjects." less...
