"(I am American, so I don’t have an accent!) I’ve completed a teaching methods course and am qualified in all the social sciences such as history, geography, economics, government, and psychology. I also spent a summer teaching physical science at the high school level as a volunteer in Kenya … without electricity or textbooks. As an experienced writer and editor, I can help with essays, personal statements, writing technique and mechanics, as well as reading/study skills.

"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. More important than such external measurements, however, is the individual student's knowledge that he or she has come into possession of, and internalized, a set of tools useful for further learning. I've edited five books for Duke University Press, and I have also taught college. My students find me ...

"I can also tutor a broad range of classes from elementary and high-school level classes to any of the required pre-business courses at the University of Arizona. I have found that I am quite passionate about teaching and helping others succeed. Much of my strength as a tutor comes from patience and allowing the student to find the answer on his own and not just handing it to him/her. I am able to relate well to students and am especially good at making the subject matter interesting and showing the student how it is in fact useful for real life. In my free time, I love playing sports and spending time with friends and family." ...

I have tutored math through high school algebra privately and am certified to teach middle school math.

" 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. As I worked with him throughout the semester, I was able to raise his grade from an "F" to a "B" by the end of the semester. During that time, I really focused on making sure my student understood the basics and fundamental processes before slowly moving ...

"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. This extended into high school where I excelled in my English classes, notably in AP English Language and Composition and AP English Literature. I scored 740 and 800 on my SAT Writing and Reading sections, respectively, and also took the SAT Subject Test for Literature and earned a 750. Being still in school myself, I can easily connect to students of all ages struggling with the stress of academics. I am willing and capable to assist with a range of tutoring angles, from ...

"I recently finished an MA in philosophy at the University of Colorado in Boulder. What I loved most about being in graduate school in Boulder was being a Teaching Assistant for introductory philosophy courses. I enjoyed communicating the importance of critical thinking and clear argumentative writing. I also had to chance to display my passion for charting the development and influence of Big Ideas through history. I am taking classes full-time towards a teaching credential in secondary (7-12) education at Pima Community College."
