"Teaching and education is something that I consider extremely important. It is because of a few good teachers that I am where I am today. As a graduate student at the U of A, I have taught a number of different chemistry labs ranging from general chemistry to senior level physical chemistry. I put a lot of work into my teaching because I believe that a good teacher makes a huge difference in how people learn."

" Since then, I've worked with students from eighth grade to adults returning to the classroom, students struggling to pass to students wanting to attend (and getting into!) Ivy League schools. Most students come to me for math, but I've also worked with standardized test preparation, chemistry, biology, Spanish, grammar and writing, economics, statistics, and time management. Two families still hire me when I visit home for Christmas break and over the summer. Math and science classes are really just elaborate puzzles to solve, and most of my students learn to enjoy the process of figuring out what to do once I help them develop the ...

" Through high school and college, even while completing two unrelated bachelor's degree programs, I began tutoring my own classmates, younger students, and even adult neighbors using a similar delivery style as my own teachers, albeit tailored to each student's individual struggles. My clients all showed a drastic improvement in their respective classroom performances. In graduate school, I had the opportunity to teach a semester of College Algebra, again peppering my lectures with idiosyncratic memory triggers. My students all left the class with well-earned grades showing their increased understanding of mathematics." ...

"Last year, as a sophomore in college, I was a TA for the Spanish Department, responsible for creating and executing my own lesson plans for two one-hour classes per week for Spanish 102, grading homework and designing my own quizzes. I also tutored occasionally through our on-campus tutoring program. Finally, for the past two summers I have worked at the extremely rigorous Breakthrough Collaborative Teaching Internship at their Miami, Florida location teaching 5th and 6th grade science, where I a was again responsible for my own lesson plans, classwork, homework and quizzes. I am very interested in working with Varsity Tutors as I ...

"While at my university I also worked with adult students pursuing a GED. Ultimately, mathematics is not about memorizing formulas but about the logical process of arriving at a conclusion. Ideally, my job will consist of reminding the student of the tools at their disposal and they will make the leap themselves towards their desired answer. This ability to think about problems is not limited to mathematics and, if mastered, will stay with the student for the rest of their lives. Aside from mathematics I enjoy playing my piano. I especially love playing music from movie, TV show and video game soundtracks.." ...

I find that because of my academic background I am easily able to relate to others and help them achieve their goals. At my core I am a problem solver; I find satisfaction in using teamwork to complete tasks that may not have otherwise been achievable."
