I love finding new ways to re-introduce difficult concepts. Although my ADHD has given me some difficulties, especially with reading, I have found that I can readily see concepts in different ways than most people see them. This is really what I mean by re-introducing difficult concepts; I find great satisfaction in helping students find solutions by taking a path that is better suited for their learning style. But, this is not always the simpler path, nor is it fool proof. It takes a lot of practice, trial and error, and frustration to really get a hand at figuring out how it is you learn best. But, it is worth it, because it ultimately makes school and learning significantly more enjoyable, which translates into success. Personally, I have to rewrite notes into organized, bulleted summaries and add a rainbow of colors to highlight the most important stuff. These tricks, as well as one-on-one help can help students to learn in the moment and develop life-long study skills. Though I do not have any formal experience with tutoring, I have been, and still am, an excellent student. I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2011, with a bachelor's in psychology and a GPA of 3.17 (I like to think it would have been higher if I had figured out the ADHD thing before college!), while being on the varsity swim team all four years. Currently, I am at Widener University in their dual degree program, working towards a master's in Education and Social Work, with a GPA of 4.0. I hope to eventually go on to earn my PhD (knock on wood!) I have also been coaching and teaching swimming for 6 years, from ages 5 through 21, at all levels. I have coached summer teams, club teams, and university teams, as well as given private lessons and taught beginning and intermediate swimming at Widener. Swimmers are students too, and I like to take the same approach in the classroom and apply it to technique and drills. Even athletes learn in different ways, and sometimes it just takes a fresh explanation to learn a new skill.

How do I contact this tutor?

Click the blue “email” button to access NextGuru’s free messaging system. Here you may ask questions about experience, teaching methods, availability, rate...

What is a trial class?

Finding the right tutor takes more than a teaching profile page – it requires the right chemistry… Therefore, all our tutor members have agreed to offer new students a trial class to help determine if there’s a great fit. This means no semester-long contracts… just find a tutor, pay the flat NextGuru trial class fee and have a test run!

What happens after the trial?

That’s completely up to you! You have no obligation to continue classes. If you decide to continue, you work out the details (including schedule and payment method) directly with your instructor. If the chemistry wasn’t right, just come back to NextGuru and you can try another instructor…

How does NextGuru get paid?

All instructors are eligible for free membership – this is critical so that you can have the broadest, most diverse selection of teachers possible. Therefore, instead of paying a mandatory membership fee or a commission on lessons, our tutor members have given up their one-time trial class fee to help pay for technology and marketing costs.
