I have experience in tutoring grammar, research paper techniques, literature, and essays. I have done studies of students' essays, so I can understand their error patterns in order to identify their particular problems and help them correct their mistakes by themselves. I want students to feel like victors rather than victims of the writing process."|
|"My name is Kevin Jackson. I graduated from Hunter College with a BA in English Literature, Language and Criticism and I am currently working on my MA in English Literature at Brooklyn College. As an English tutor I have covered material in various levels of college level literature, and expository writing. I have also tutored Classical Mythology, Theatre History, and Women and Gender Studies. What I like most about tutoring is seeing students using all of their efforts to improve themselves; it is nothing less than inspiring."|
|"My name is Michelle Li and I'm currently an undergraduate at Hunter College majoring in Biochemistry and Statistics. A tutor is usually a private instructor who teaches one on certain subject areas. Not everyone understands what they learn the first time around so I would like to be the one who leads the student to their eureka moment! This feeling of satisfaction is why I like being a tutor. It's amazing feeling knowing that you were able to enhance one's knowledge. Although this is not going to change someone's life dramatically, it's still a huge deal for students to be able to build up their knowledge and confidence in the subject areas that I will tutor."|
|"My name is Carmen Ou, and I’m an undergraduate at Hunter College, majoring in Biochemistry and Mathematics. I tutor Chemistry and math courses, ranging from College Algebra to Calculus. I love math and chemistry and I love how tutoring allows me to share my knowledge of these two subjects with students. Most importantly, I enjoy tutoring because it’s extremely rewarding to see students understand materials that were confusing just moments ago."|
|"My name is Carlos Pico. I am an advertising graduate from the School of Visual Arts in NYC and I love English writing. It is beautiful to be able to tutor writing because it is exciting to see students improve each time when they come to the SEEK Learning Center. I really believe improvement in writing can be made in small steps, which has a huge impact."|
