"I am an undergraduate at Yale University studying physics. I’ve always had a deep love for mathematics and a penetrating curiosity for the fundamental laws of the universe. One of my favorite applications of these subjects is tutoring. It is my philosophy that everything is easy once you find the right way to look at it, and that’s not the same for everyone, but helping students find that deeper understanding and perspective is one of the most rewarding sensations I’ve experienced."

"My name is Lorna and I am an undergraduate student at the University of Arizona here in Tucson. My college focus is in the areas of Biology and Chemistry because of my love for nature, interest in the environment and a desire to be a part of the advances that scientific research can create. However, despite my studies at the UA my real strengths for tutoring lie in the Literary and Verbal realms of academia. A voracious reader, I grew up surrounded by books.

"What makes me a great tutor is the fact that my students choose to maintain intellectual relationships with me even after formal instruction has been completed. This is true both of the college students and of the high- and middle-schoolers I have taught. When I ran the test-prep program in Missouri, numerous students experienced high levels of success in improving not only their test scores, but also the skills these tests measure. I taught students who started at 25 on the ACT and ended up at 34, but at least as satisfying were those students who started at 14 and eventually achieved 19." ...

"My name is Sangwon and I'm a recent graduate of UCLA. As a longtime Tucson native, I decided to come back home to Tucson after graduation and am currently in the process of applying to medical schools. Having taken several standardized tests throughout the years, including the SAT, ACT, and MCAT, and a variety of different courses as an Economics major, pre-medicine student, I feel I can help in many different subject areas. I've served in a variety of tutoring roles over the years, but the one I am most proud of was when I helped a 9th grader in algebra a few years ago.
