"I’m kneeling in the coat closet, across from one of my students. He’s sobbing. In my experience, a child often needs you to ask questions. 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."

"I began tutoring in January 2010 after returning from a semester spent studying abroad in Madrid, Spain. When the head of my Spanish department approached me with the opportunity to be the tutor for the department, I jumped at the opportunity, seeing it as a way to share the experiences and skills I had acquired while studying in a foreign country with the students at my school. 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 ...

"When I went to college, I majored in sociology. One of the subjects I studied there was the education system, and most of all, how children are falling behind in math. 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."

"Hello! I've always been involved in mathematics from the earliest of ages and have regularly used it in my studies. Often I have been enlisted to assist others with studying math at all levels and occasionally other subjects. In general I find that the best aspect of tutoring is that the typical one-to-one nature is the ultimate in small class size, allowing for full attention to be given to the individual. 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 ...
