Hey! I'm Sarah, and I'm currently studying history at Princeton. I'm from Brooklyn, New York, and I love reading good fantasy books and working on my art (by which, okay, I mean adult coloring books, but no judging)! I've always loved tutoring, and I've spent the past three summers designing curricula and teaching summer classes to high school students. My favorite subjects are history and art history, but I have experience teaching everything from chemistry, biology, and earth science to Jewish Philosophy. I've also spent a few years now tutoring students for the SAT and ACT. When I was a high school student, I tried to make the SAT fun for myself. When I came across a particularly interesting reading passage, I would go to the local library and read the whole book the passage originated from. I know, a little nerdy, but I did find good books that way. I've also worked as a camp counselor and a special needs therapist, and I love connecting with, helping, and learning from everyone I can. I find tutoring to be a great way to do this!

Hi, I'm Isabel and I'm a junior in the History department at Princeton. I'm also pursuing a certificate in American Studies to study America and the making of a citizen, through the academic intersections of philosophy, sociology, politics and history. This summer I was abroad in South Africa taking a course in consulting and working at Accenture. The experience was wonderful because I got to spend time outdoors hiking and surfing, while also learning something at the same time!

My greatest experience with teaching is likely just having a younger sister - we are two years apart and have a very close relationship. My mom teaches Preschool, my dad teaches high school/adult education, and I myself believe that the most impactful people in life are teachers that understand their students and lead a commendable example. Aside from tutoring primarily through Aristotle Circle, I spent a great deal of time writing/playing/listening to music. I'm passionate about music as well as academic exploration and will likely end up in a career that allows for interdisciplinary variance. Travel is a huge part of my life and I've enjoyed visiting family in the Philippines and performing with my orchestra in Prague and Vienna. Curiosity and worldly experience fuel my drive to become as educated as possible, and my desire to help others makes tutoring a natural outlet.

I have an enthusiastic and energetic approach to studying that has served me well as a student and has enhanced the experiences of the students I have worked with. No matter the subject, I find ways to engage students in topics they may have previously found boring. Teaching the SAT over the summer to students who would have rather been anywhere else taught me this skill well. As a student, I use my time efficiently, keeping highly organized planners to make sure I respect all my commitments. This is a skill that is essential to success in every facet of life. I am a performer, and one of my favorite classroom activities is speaking in front of the class. This love, I believe, dovetails perfectly with my desire to be a tutor. I find joy in explaining material and helping people understand interesting concepts. This joy then transfers to my students. I respect the intellects of the students I work with. I have read several studies which demonstrate the Pygmalion Effect, and I actively apply this knowledge to my teaching style: students whom teachers believe are special, though actually chosen at random, show significantly improved test scores over those of their classmates. This study suggests to me that if I treat my students as though they are brilliant, showing them the respect, engagement and encouragement of one who believes they can excel, my students truly will excel.

I love to tutor because I do not like seeing knowledge go to waste. When I take a class, I recognize that not everything I learn in that class will be of use to me when I am no longer in that class or in the future when I am pursuing a professional career. To some, this extraneous information is an additional weight; fat to be trimmed from an already enormous set of expectations set forth by that class. However, I believe there is beauty in the details. What I may find boring, another person may be so intrigued by that they base their entire life around understanding it. In order to find your place in the world, you need to find a set of knowledge you are comfortable with learning and then eventually extending when you are older and can contribute to that body of knowledge. But you will never know what role you can play in the world unless you sift through all the pieces and do not take the opportunity to learn for granted. So, I tutor because I myself do not want to forget all the pieces of knowledge I have picked up throughout my life, and because I hope that through the proper lens I can give another person insight into something about themselves and what they are passionate about, that they would never had known, had they not taken the time to shift through all the pieces of knowledge they have had the opportunity to learn.
