"I developed and taught an environmental education curriculum for third graders at a local elementary school, and won awards for sustainability communication projects, culminating in the Outstanding Service Award from the Environmental Studies program upon graduation. A lot of my peers(and all three of my younger siblings!) have come to me for help with test prep techniques, but I also really enjoy working with students in math and writing, helping them solve problems and clearly communicate complex ideas. In addition to pursuing a career in the field of Urban Planning, I enjoy playing a multitude of styles on acoustic guitar as well ...

"Discovering a love of sharing the joy of learning with students, I added some classes from the Curry School of Education to my course load. I took classes on technology in the classroom, curriculum development, and teaching theory among others and used the skills I learned here to teach in summer and Saturday enrichment programs. I recently moved to Los Angeles and found myself missing the interaction I had with the students I knew while attending UVA, and I am so excited to meet my future pupils! Nothing can beat sharing the joy of learning (especially learning something new for the first time) with someone else. My favorite subjects to ...

" I have an insatiable curiosity for learning new things, especially in science and medicine. I also have a passion for helping and teaching others, and I believe that tutoring is a great way to help other students find that curiosity and passion for themselves. I enjoy those moments when he or she makes the connections between concepts, which inspires self-confidence and often sparks a desire to learn more and apply his or her critical thinking skills to other subjects too. In this way, I believe tutors serve not only as a teacher to the student, but also as a role model." ...

"To be able to apply what I learned whether it was the structure of proteins, carbohydrates, and fat that influence the energy in our food; the closed integral of heat engines; the tricky solution equations from Algebra 1 that determined the ratio of soda and punch, or the different meanings behind stories as one ages were fascinating to me. The mental leap from symbols on a page to a tangible function of one's life was the part of the education system that I feel was not out right taught but would have benefited my class mates immensely. My love of learning and understanding is what I bring to every student I tutor. I try to show my students why the ...

"In addition to two language immersion programs, I did a two-year stint as a teaching assistant for first-year Chinese (which was one of my all-time favorite classes, both to take and to teach). Eventually I went to China to teach English for a year, but decided to come home because of a lack of long-term job prospects. Despite that, I still love my languages and try to stay current by reading foreign news and doing translations. In my experience, the best way to learn a language is total immersion--with little to no English as a crutch. For this, a good tutor (or a language exchange partner) is essential. Apart from my language qualifications, ...

" While my tutoring experience has been limited to college students and college coursework, I feel that I could be very effective with high school students as well as undergraduates. Though my experience and schooling largely rests in the life sciences field, I can definitely teach more than science as I have extensive experience tutoring for the MCAT, which involves not only science, but requires a very strong test strategy skill set. I am currently living near the University of La Verne with my girlfriend, and I enjoy reading, hiking, and generally anything outdoors- even after living in Southern California for over two years it still ...

"I began tutoring during high school when an underclassman's parents asked me to help their son review the material for his algebra class. In college and graduate school, my friends would ask me to proofread their papers or clarify some of the topics from our classes. After my studies, I returned to my old high school as a substitute teacher where I spent a semester teaching algebra and geometry classes and directing the school play. Among my peers, I tend to be the go-to guy for any questions about math or grammar."
