University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
AP Scholar with Distinction, 1st Team All Area Volleyball Player
I have experience teaching people in various disciplines ranging from academic subjects to sports. I have always enjoyed helping those who need help get from point A to point B. It is a great feeling to give back because if people hadn't helped me when I was younger I would not be where I am today. My philosophy in tutoring branches into two separate categories, being a motivator and being a teacher. As a tutor, it is my responsibility to help the student achieve his/her goals by instructing them on how to approach the subject at hand. However, it is also my responsibility to motivate the student, so that he/she is putting in the necessary preparation outside of our tutoring sessions in order to succeed. I have found the following to be true: 1. There is no substitute for hard work 2. Luck favors the prepared
Rutgers University
The President’s Award for Academic Excellence, History Student Award for Academic Achievement in History
Eileen graduated from the School of Arts and Sciences with a major in Art History and a minor in Classics. In her free time she helps run House Blackrill: Medieval Reenactment Society and whacks people with swords. In the future she plans on attending graduate school for Art History. As an undergraduate, Eileen first found her passion for tutoring through the Rutgers Learning Centers, where she mentored students one-on-one and individually in remedial math. She explored this passion further by working with the Office of Student Affairs at Rutgers to put together a 10-week accredited Art History seminar for first-year students, for which she developed the curriculum and was the sole instructor. This experience taught her the importance of adapting lessons to the interests and strengths of her pupils. In her final year of undergraduate studies, Eileen spent a semester abroad in Galway, Ireland. There, she developed a healthy interest in Irish History and an unhealthy interest in fish and chips.
Swarthmore College
Term honors (12/12), NJISAA Scholar-Athlete Award, AP Scholar with Distinction
I am an Engineering and Computer Science major at Swarthmore College. I am a very passionate, curious learner. I have always been a student driven a desire to understand the course material beyond the scope of the class. I'm looking forward to the opportunity to help others understand the things I am passionate about. I have been tutoring in various subjects since high school, and at college I am a computer science tutor through the Dean's Office. Given my majors, I am strongest in math and computer science, but I enjoy helping students with physics as well. I have also studied languages for a long time and am fluent in both French and Spanish.
New Jersey Institute of Technology
AP Scholar with Distinction
I find teaching to be a great opportunity to help others but also become a better individual. I have taught many students in Computer Science and outside of education in tennis as well. It is always rewarding to see growth after students put in hard work. This is why I tutor to see the happiness on students' faces after they achieve their goals. At the end of the day, if you put in effort you will always get results, so they key to academic success is to work hard, and all of your goals will be achieved. I enjoy teaching all math subjects, physics, and computer science. Currently, I am majoring in Mathematics and Computer Science, and I have always had a passion for these subjects.

Varsity Tennis Captain, Vice President of March of Dimes Club, Treasurer of Red Cross Club
As a tutor, I enjoy helping students achieve their academic goals while making learning fun! I have previous experience with teaching and mentoring students as a peer learning assistant in an Ecology and Evolution class and as a Resident Assistant for the Honors College Dormitory at New Jersey Institute of Technology. I have also worked with special needs children as a camp counselor at Muscular Dystrophy Association summer camp. I've helped students of varying skill levels individually and in small groups master both simple and complex topics by providing studying tactics and helping them understand the big picture of ideas presented. In addition, I will also be a medical student this upcoming fall so I will be able to guide any students who wish to follow the same career path as me. I am most comfortable teaching any subjects related to Biology (Genetics, Ecology and Evolution, Anatomy and Physiology, Cell Biology, etc.), Chemistry, English (reading and writing), and Mathematics. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, playing sports, and exploring the outdoors! I am also a certified Emergency Medical Technician! I am obsessed with dogs and animals in general and would one day love to volunteer for a non profit organization focused on helping endangered species. I am very excited to tutor and make learning as fun as it can be!
