"I genuinely love to educate myself and others, and have successfully managed to apply this enthusiasm for learning and teaching to tutoring at the elementary, high school, and college levels. As a tutor, I prefer to address students for the unique people they are. This interpersonal approach allows me to assess and evaluate students’ academic strengths and weaknesses vis-à-vis their own personalities, interests, and most importantly, learning needs. I do not simply seek to impart or prepare, but rather to take advantage of the opportunity to form a substantive, intimate bond with individual students and help them to assimilate ...

"I started by tutoring French and teaching flute to younger students. I realized how much fun it is to teach and continued tutoring when I was in college.

" I was born and raised here in San Diego. I graduated with honors from UCSB with a BA in Psychology and a minor in US History. For the past 3 years, I've taught ESL (English as a Second Language) abroad in Japan and Chile. I love working with students and helping them grasp concepts that they have struggled with in school. I enjoy building up their confidence in the subject matter, and then watching them be able to use their knowledge to solve problems on their own."

"I have extensive experience tutoring and working with youth in general. I have tutored fourth- and fifth-graders in math and peer-edited countless peers' college essays; I have directed youth sports camps and provided support to severely emotionally disturbed high-schoolers. It may sound trite, but I deeply enjoy the intellectual and interpersonal challenge of the teaching experience. While I expect hard work from a student, I am patient above all and listen before I lecture."

"I have taught business classes at the post secondary level in the UK, and have also tutored a wide variety of subjects to students at various skill levels back here in Chicago. I truly enjoy helping students reach their goals and maintain their motivation toward success, and I believe that the best tutoring experience begins with the tutor properly determining the needs and goals of the student. I look forward to working with you! ."

" My passion for warm temperatures brought me to Arizona last year to work and live with my extended family. I am currently also doing another passion of mine—coaching soccer—while I tutor and look for a good doctoral program to attend. My plans are to continue in the field of education one day as a professor of either history or education. With my vast classroom experience I am very good at assessing student needs and responding accordingly. I believe each person learns in a unique style, and it is the responsibility of the teacher/tutor to identify that style and make accommodations in his/her instructional approach." ...

"I focus on teaching concepts behind the problems so that students understand what they are being tested on. It's kind of a cheesy thing to say but test preparation really is about thinking like a test maker rather than a test taker. ."

" Both of my parents taught high school social studies, so you might say teaching runs in the family! I believe that every student has the capability to achieve academically, but that, sometimes, traditional classroom instruction isn't quite enough to lead each student to his or her potential. Working one-on-one with a student allows me to target areas of weakness, while increasing his confidence in his ability to achieve. Standardized testing isn't particularly fun, but getting into the college of your dreams is, and conquering the SAT and/or the ACT is an important step in the process. Tutoring sessions don't have to be unpleasant or ...

"For the majority of my professional career I worked for Pearson Education, the largest Educational publisher in the country. There I worked alongside teachers and professors to help write and develop some of today's most cutting edge educational texts and technology.

" There I studied Physics with a specialization in Astrophysics. I was very involved in the student physics organizations, published several papers about gamma rays, and traveled to South America to work on experiments. I then went to graduate school at Northwestern University, where I received my Master's Degree in Learning Sciences (which is like a degree in Education with an emphasis on public policy.) I focused mostly on better teaching practices outside the classroom, utilizing technology to teach, and getting girls interested in math and science. I have an informal, friendly teaching style. I like to show students that they CAN ...
