"Is your student stressing about any of these events looming just around the corner? Students that need help should have the appropriate resources, so that's why I'm here to offer my services in the written language. I feel it's my duty to pass on what I've learned throughout my high school and college experiences. I'm well-versed writing personal essays, taking admissions tests, critically analyzing literature, and everything in between. Now, these can be very daunting tasks for some students - but that doesn't have to be the case! Maybe your student isn't quite at that college preparation stage." ...

"I'm determined to see the education level of this country rise. As a dancer, I was often put in charge of younger kids and helped them learn routines, especially ones that were struggling. I had a knack for helping kids remember their moves through catchphrases and alternate explanations of how the movement was supposed to work. I carried that over to my tutoring, where I would aid friends by coming up with mnemonic devices and extended metaphors that allowed them to understand the concepts better. Also, the opportunity to work with students one-on-one really gave me insight into their learning style, and I could adapt my teaching to ...

"Seeing the light bulb turn on in their eyes, always makes me feel excited and happy that they have fully grasped a concept. Whether it's working with my peers at TCU who are also pursuing a Business or Spanish degree, or working with someone younger, that look in someone's eyes is ageless. The subjects I tutor range from all elementary subjects to ACT prep, to AP prep, to college essays. I specialize in liberal arts topics including Spanish, reading, writing, history and math up until the high school level.

"Why? What’s going on? What’s our problem and how can we solve it together? They need to know you’ll care before they’ll answer. Many times the reason for an outburst in class or confusion about an assignment is an underlying need for help or an issue. This may be the minor need of extra practice on two digit multiplying, or the “why” of fractions. As a teacher, wife, sister, friend, aunt, daughter, and student, I have learned that you need to back up and figure out the cause of the problem."

" AmeriCorps is a lot like the Peace Corps, only volunteers stay in the US and work for a variety of independent charities and organizations. I worked for The University of Chicago Center for Urban School Improvement – an initiative of the university to bolster education in some of the city’s lowest achieving schools. During the school day I served as a Literacy Tutor for students in Kindergarten through 3rd grade. I also provided homework help and math and literacy tutoring for K-8 students in an after-school program."

"Today's teachers and students are partners in the process of learning. Interaction between the two serves as an impetus for understanding and motivation for success. Over the years, since began tutoring in high school, I have gained experience tutoring students from Kindergarten-12th grade as well on the college level. I have learned that a tutor is not only a guide, but a friend who helps in the learning process. I am a tutor who understands the way students think and perceive; this assists me in making science and mathematics and reading understandable. My aim is to help students reach their fullest potential and ultimately become ...

" Following my wife's graduation, we moved to the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Shortly after moving, I realized that my real passion is teaching science and math. Following that realization, I became a teacher, and now a tutor. As a teacher and a tutor, my greatest strength is breaking down complex ideas into manageable pieces of information and then transforming those pieces into deep understandings of the content material. In addition, I love seeing my students learn."

" In part because of my set of eclectic interests, I find all interests to be equally valuable and play some role in society, small however it may be. (There is some intrigue in just about everything!) For standardized tests like the SAT and ACT, knowing the strategies for the test is often as important as being able to determine the answer. The structure of the test and the questions influences the test-taking strategy, and so I focus on that as well as the material itself.."

" We play and learn. We in the western world tend to focus on the science and discipline without incorporating the language and art. As an active musician and artist, I communicate the value in fine arts relationships to mathematics. That part doesn't make the money, but it does make math a more pleasant environment for the folks who think they aren't math people."
