Honors Graduate, Experienced Tutor (8 years) and English/Language Arts enthusiast offering lessons in NY to all grade levels

Methodology

My goal as a tutor is not to hold my student's hand but to guide them so that my students can use their hands appropriately in different scenarios. I understand that not all students benefit from the education system's cookie cutter approach to learning. Instead of imposing pre-prepared methods of thinking, I aim to encourage each of my students to develop their own methods through critical thinking. My goal isn't to ace a single test, it is to equip my student with tools to ace every test they encounter.

Background

I am a mix between an academic and artist. I have 17 years of dance experience (as a performer, choreographer, and teacher) while currently pursuing my post-graduate degree. I graduated from college thanks to a full-ride academic scholarship. I have a Bachelors in Biology with a concentration in Honors Studies, as well as other numerous accolades from throughout my career as a student. My experience in tutoring spans from elementary school students to college undergrads. Although most of my tutoring experience focused mostly on the sciences and maths, I have always had a fondness for tutoring English, Reading Comprehension, and Writing.
