" Despite having a full-time job, about a month after graduation I realized that there was something missing in my day and that was school. While I do not have plans to return to school as a student immediately, I began to look into other venues where I could be involved in academics and help others succeed. The solution I found was to look into tutoring other students and that is how I found Varsity Tutors. My love of learning and education was instilled at a young age because both of my parents are teachers, my dad teaches Geology and my mom teaches 3rd grade." ...

"As a freshman in Princeton University, I began to tutor high school students for the SAT in New York City. At Princeton, I majored in Spanish and Portuguese Languages and Cultures and minored in two areas: Latin American Studies and Translation and Intercultural Communication. I also served as president of my 180+ member eating club, the Princeton Terrace Club. Upon my college graduation, I joined Teach for America in Dallas, Texas, where I continue to help students increase their SAT scores to achieve their college goals.."

" I view mathematics as a way for young minds to know the thrill of learning a serious discipline in a high-energy, focused environment. 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."

"This really motivated me to look into this field more and do what I can to help our children do better. 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." ...

"In this role I was not only a tutor for peer engineering students but also served as an academic mentor and adviser. Soon after, in the fall of 2009, I began working with Varsity Tutors in St. Louis. Through both these tutoring roles, I had the opportunity to help students ranging from middle school aged kids to graduate students in a wide array of subjects. Though the types of students I have tutored are varied, the common theme in my tutoring experience has been empowering the student to truly learn concepts through problem solving." ...

" Helping others understand a concept has always been something that I enjoyed. Seeing the light bulb turn on in their eyes, always makes me feel excited and happy that they have fully grasped a concept.

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." ...

"What I didn't expect, however, was for the process to be as mutually enriching as it became, with me happy and enthused about heading to my tutoring sessions. It was at that point that I knew I had not only the ability to help students understand, but also an obligation to share the wonderful experiences and knowledge that my journeys around the world have imparted on me. As a recent graduate of Southwestern University, where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and Communication Studies, I feel as if I'm seeing the world with new eyes; eyes unfazed by the haze of too many sleepless nights spent studying. I find learning opportunities ...

" Texas has so many great things to offer and so many wonderful people. I have always been studious, and I have always wanted to learn about a wide variety of subjects. I have taken every type of class imaginable because I never could decide what subject I loved more. That's why it took me so long to decide on a major! In all my difficult classes where teacher instruction has fallen short, I've just taught the material to myself from the text."

" As an engineering student, I have had to work with math and physical sciences on a practical level. Rather than just learning the theory behind courses like calculus, differential equations, and mechanics, I've had to actually apply these concepts to real world problems. Because of this, I have developed a better understanding of how to approach difficult math problems and how to make them easier using tips and tricks. In addition to working with college engineering students, I also taught high school mathematics, physics, and chemistry to 8th and 9th graders for two summers with the Duke University Talent Identification Program. ...
