Our Tutors

We understand that all students are different in the way that they learn, which is why our tutors are all different in the ways that they teach. Our tutors are trained to adapt their own personal affinities to the narratives of their students. If a student feels like their tutor is not well-suited to their personal learning style, we will first work to match them with a different tutor more aligned with their needs. But there is one thing in common with every tutor: a lasting impression on the education of their students. After our students feel ready to move on from their tutoring, we want to leave them with a desire to learn more. Everyone deserves to feel confident in the classroom, and HSA Tutoring strives to motivate students so they can excel going forward.

Q: Why do you tutor?

“Because it allows me to give to others what I have been so lucky to receive: time and energy devoted towards my educational and personal growth.”

Q: How do you teach?

“My philosophy is that a student who learns how to learn will succeed far more than someone who is instructed on the minutia of any specific subject. I emphasize critical thinking, good study habits, persistence, and the idea that any student can master a topic with practice and the right resources.”

Q: Why do you tutor?

“I enjoy giving back and helping students realize their potential. I absolutely treasure the positive impact that I can have on students’ lives.”

Q: How do you teach?

“It’s important to me that I know my students personally: their aspirations, their likes/dislikes, their learning style, and more. I always ask my students what their goals are, and work hard to build a structured lesson plan that will accomplish this.”
