...Literature with an emphasis on screenwriting. Although I love literature and writing, I am most passionate about tutoring math. I have five years of experience as a math tutor, during which time I helped students ages 3-17 with math ranging from basic arithmetic to pre-calculus. My favorite math topic is algebra, particularly because of its usefulness in solving real-world word problems. In addition to mathematics, I find joy in teaching/elucidating Shakespeare to high-school students. As...

Some of my strengths are getting to know my students, identifying their strengths and weaknesses, and leveraging their interests in order to motivate them and build confidence.

...for my students. I've spent many hours working individually with students long after the school day ends to help them prep for the ACT, polish their English papers, or understand a math concept. I know that every student learns differently, and as a teacher and tutor I aim to give my students a diversity of learning approaches so that we can figure out which one works best for them. I love getting to know my...

My unique approach to SAT and ACT test-prep focuses just as much on...
...and better chances for admission into more schools. Tutoring for me is a transfer of knowledge that the typical classroom of one teacher to twenty or so students doesn't allow--it's more personal. By use of whiteboards, practice problems, constant repetition, and positive encouragement, students start to understand the problems themselves and are more likely to be able to solve similar problems by themselves in the future. When I can see the student understands a troubling...

I have taught and tutored many ages in many places - all the way from elementary students in rural China to college students in a university writing center.

...in mathematical subjects, the true knowledge is in understanding the process of answering a question, and just knowing the answer is not enough. I work with students to recognize errors, and to help students be able to answer questions by themselves. I have a similar approach in English subjects, where it is very important to develop a thought process when thinking analytically about a piece of writing. Students will learn to recognize grammatical structure and...

Recent Literature Tutoring Session Notes
We read a short story together and went over key plot points, character development, vocabulary, and themes. We also began learning how to take notes within a text.
The student's assignment was to complete a Venn diagram comparing three of the source materials of interviews she had done. With this assignment, we worked on responses through poetry, personal narrative, and interview. The poem we analyzed was only eight lines long, and when she began to dissect it I realized that she was engaging on a very deep level even though the poem was very straight forward. We talked about finding balance in poetry and how sometimes you will have to read more into the poetry to find the meaning but to also be careful not to miss what's right in front of your face too. After we broke down each source she had no trouble filling out the diagram and she did a pretty great job!
In this session, we covered three new colonial-era works for the student's English Literature course. We discussed the main themes present in these narratives, including the prevalent theme of the binary (Puritan versus non-religious, good versus evil, colonist versus native, etc.). We discussed the language behind many of the texts and discussed how they represented or painted a picture of Puritanism. We then transitioned to studying for her Early Christianity course, where we prepared for her quiz the next day. We discussed terminology and historical elements, primarily focusing on Luke and Paul. We prioritized content areas to ensure that she is well prepared for her quiz.
We read aloud (as assigned by the student's instructor) the first couple of chapters of Zora Neale Hurston's "Their Eyes Were Watching God." The importance of reading aloud was immediately apparent when the dialogues began. We discussed some cultural references, stylistic and narrative techniques, and the tenor of the passages.
We read through another assignment. This was incredibly dense, but the student did a good job working through it. She's learning to take her time and let things sink in. I am seeing some slow improvement for her.
