"...I am currently working with MD Anderson in the Department of Pulmonary Medicine, where my research focuses on the importance of mast cells in inflammation and hypersensitivity. My future plans include attending graduate school in clinical research and pursuing a career within medical research. I have loved biology since my middle school days of watching nerdy forensic crime shows and I feel so lucky to be able to share my passion now! I have worked with students of all ages in various areas and levels of math and science, including biology, algebra, geometry, microbiology, etc..."

"...Throughout school was a peer tutor helping both advanced and struggling students and at the University of Massachusetts Amherst I was a tutor for the Mathematics department with a focus on Calculus for non-math majors. It is my favorite feeling when the lesson 'clicks' with my learners. I will show you how to deconstruct complex equations and use mathematical strategies to make even the most difficult problems solvable..."

"...This has taken the form of summer math enrichment programs where I worked closely with both CPS students and teachers, being a teaching assistant for first-year students at the UofC, and extensive one-on-one tutoring with students from my high school. I can proudly say I've taught math and hard science to all types, from poets to future engineers. I focus on teaching my students to always think for themselves and to come up with their own solutions rather than relying on rote memorization. My goal is that come test time, even if they are initially stumped, the intuition that students have worked so hard to build up will push them in the right direction..."

"... First of all, congratulations for taking a big step in furthering your child's education – one-on-one tutoring is one of the most effective ways to improve academic achievement and confidence. Above all else, a good teacher shines light where there was otherwise darkness. Sometimes, a student simply cannot see how to connect theory and practice, sometimes, they don't realize how good they are at something, until someone else points it out. As a full-time classroom teacher, I am passionate about teaching, dedicated to nurturing students so they may reach their full potential. One message I always like to relay with my students: stay positive and focused, and anything is possible..."

"...The mark of a great tutor is one who is able to 'work himself out of a job,' and that is a philosophy I personally believe in. I am not the kind of tutor who will just give you the answer to the problem and move on. My goal is to develop the student's understanding to the point where they will not need to ask me for help because I will have taught them well enough to use their knowledge in a logical way to solve problems. I have extensive experience in all of the subjects listed in my profile, and I particularly enjoy tutoring in various math subjects and standardized tests..."

Since I was in grade school, I have always had a thirst for knowledge, and I love tutoring students not only to help them improve their skills but also to help cultivate a passion for learning.
