Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT Math tutors in Irving, TX
" 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. Based on my personal experience as both a tutor and a student, I have seen that thinking, working, and solving problems helps solidify a concept much more than simply hearing someone lecture about it." ...

" 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. Education has always been a priority for me, and I love making ordinary, everyday events into creative learning opportunities." ...

"My first opportunity to tutor other students came in high school when I was a volunteer for the school Math Club and I loved it immediately! Since then I have tutored students ranging from middle school to adults in subjects such as math, English, science, and test prep and the satisfaction gained from seeing students progress from confusion to understanding never gets old. In my free time, I like to think of myself as an explorer who loves to travel, hike, camp, or simply wander around an unexplored neighborhood. I also enjoy playing basketball, swimming, and cooking (and eating of course!).." ...

"While I love astronomy and physics-type sciences, I have recently developed an insatiable appetite for early classical through industrial revolution periods of Greco-Roman based history... don't ask me why... or do. Because of my Physics degree, I am also well versed in the realms of Mathematics, and have taken well beyond collegiate linear algebra and differential equations as well as various computational modeling methods."

" Following my wife's graduation, we moved to the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Shortly after moving, I realized that my real passion is teaching science and math. Following that realization, I became a teacher, and now a tutor. As a teacher and a tutor, my greatest strength is breaking down complex ideas into manageable pieces of information and then transforming those pieces into deep understandings of the content material. In addition, I love seeing my students learn."

" AmeriCorps is a lot like the Peace Corps, only volunteers stay in the US and work for a variety of independent charities and organizations. I worked for The University of Chicago Center for Urban School Improvement – an initiative of the university to bolster education in some of the city’s lowest achieving schools. During the school day I served as a Literacy Tutor for students in Kindergarten through 3rd grade. I also provided homework help and math and literacy tutoring for K-8 students in an after-school program."

" 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 ACT, knowing the strategies for the test is often as important as being able to determine the answer. The structure of the test and the questions influences the test-taking strategy, and so I focus on that as well as the material itself.."

"In the fall of 2012 I moved to Fort Worth, where I am currently pursuing my PhD in American Literature, in addition to tutoring for Varsity. On the personal side, I enjoy interior decorating, baking, and playing bass guitar.

" During my senior year I worked as a Calculus tutor and felt fulfilled while helping others master complicated concepts. I love teaching others and I practice inspiring enthusiasm in students every day at the science museum where I work. I understand that learning new concepts can be a very challenging process. I believe it is important for tutors to be reminded of the difficulty of learning new concepts and I challenge myself by enrolling in online courses so that I can better relate to individuals I tutor."
