...That application, on this test, can be accomplished by the use of a fairly small set of logic principles and tools -- all are teachable. I know what to teach; I am able to teach it; therefore, we will have happy, successful students. I scored in the 97th percentile on the verbal portion of the GRE and in the 92nd percentile of the special test on Literature.

...I have a wide variety of interests, including traveling. My family is originally from Belgium and I have been privileged to live in four different countries including Belgium, the UK, and Australia. Although difficult at times, I have loved this experience because it has both broadened my interests and allowed me to create a global network.
...My background is primarily in classical piano and contemporary/easy listening music. I took violin & viola lessons for 8 years growing up. I was a member of my school orchestras all throughout middle school, high school, and for one semester during my freshman year of college.
...I have a flexible schedule and am willing to tutor in a variety of locations. To provide a peaceful comfortable learning environment, I generally hold sessions at my house, although I am certainly willing to travel if that is more convenient. That said, I like to hold the 1st tutoring session in a public space (coffee shop, library) and then figure out where to meet regularly.
...At this time I am doing what is referred to as practicum in which I prepare lessons plans and present them in classrooms across Chicago. I was born and raised in Chicago, specifically in the Pilsen neighborhood. It is because of my upbringing and environment that I decided that I wanted to teach.
