"When I went to college, I majored in sociology. One of the subjects I studied there was the education system, and most of all, how children are falling behind in math. This really motivated me to look into this field more and do what I can to help our children do better. I'm determined to see the education level of this country rise. As a dancer, I was often put in charge of younger kids and helped them learn routines, especially ones that were struggling."

"I have always tutored my friends and family, but I never thought about doing it as a job until on of my professors at Texas Christian University suggested me as a tutor for another student. Soon I was doing something I loved. Helping others understand a concept has always been something that I enjoyed. Seeing the light bulb turn on in their eyes, always makes me feel excited and happy that they have fully grasped a concept."

"I began tutoring in January 2010 after returning from a semester spent studying abroad in Madrid, Spain. When the head of my Spanish department approached me with the opportunity to be the tutor for the department, I jumped at the opportunity, seeing it as a way to share the experiences and skills I had acquired while studying in a foreign country with the students at my school.
