Laura "I have a lot of experience both teaching in classrooms and tutoring one on one at elementary, middle, and high school levels. I began tutoring as a high school student where I worked with other students in my school district tutoring mostly math and science. Then, before attending college I spent 6 months teaching English in Peru..."
Samantha "...It was an incredible trip. We sat in the devil's pool at Victoria Falls (I recommend looking up a photo). We also went on a safari and had many other great adventures..."
Sarah "...I believe that the best way to make sure a student remembers a theorem or formula is to teach them how and why it works. Therefore, whenever it is both possible and practical, I like to walk students through demonstrations of proofs to deepen their understanding and their ability to apply the theorem or formula in question. My second most commonly tutored subject is English, particularly grammar. As a linguistics major, I have a nuanced understanding of how grammar works and, further, of how to conceptualize it and explain it in terms that a student will understand..."

Julie "I recently graduated from George Washington University with an M.A. in Museum Studies. My undergraduate degree is from Denison University, where I majored in Biology and minored in Chemistry. While pursuing my Master's degree, I spent a lot of time working at many of the area's museums learning about collections, exhibits and successful strategies for engaging and educating visitors! Biology is one of my passions, and I would love to be able to help students grow their understanding and excitement for the subject in a one-on-one, individualized setting..."
Kevin "I love helping anyone gain a better understanding in any subject in a way that makes sense to them, building upon a strong background so that he or she can tackle any type of problem in that subject. I'm originally from west Texas, where the schools are not the best, so I can easily understand and empathize with any type of course or school difficulty. I come from a fairly large family, having eight brothers and sisters, and because so, I feel I always do my best to put others ahead of myself and can get along with a wide range of different personalities..."
Craig "I am a recent graduate of Wake Forest University where I received my Bachelor of Science in Mathematical-Economics. I began tutoring Economics through my university’s tutoring center, but soon branched out to local junior high and high schools where I focused on tutoring Math. While I always enjoyed tutoring undergraduate students, I found great satisfaction in teaching Math to struggling teenagers..."
