Award-Winning Algebra Tutors in Augusta charter Township, MI
Tetyana ...I graduated, I co-instructed an international summer science course offered by UofM for high school aged students. This was a lab based course that investigated topics in genetics and developmental biology. I had a lot of fun working hands-on with biological specimens, and it was a thrill to create a contagious learning environment. I believe that every student is unique and a tailored approach to his or her learning style is vital to their success....

Hazel ...learned and how quickly the lesson has gone by. But you know what they say, time flies when you are learning. ;) Although I enjoy helping students with any subject, my passion is for reading and writing and I love to inspire students to enjoy, appreciate and analyze literature the same way that I do. When I am not working, I enjoy reading (of course), painting, yoga, kayaking, jogging (not running!!!) and making puns.

Soumith ...on campus. Outside of that, I love good food, good books, and good company. My first experience with tutoring others was when I was still in high school and was asked to help a few of my neighborhood kids with ACT prep. After successfully helping them improve their score, I realized that I actually loved teaching and continued to tutor other kids with the ACT and with math up to trigonometry. I have been tutored...

Katherine I have loved teaching for over 30 years, from elementary through college. I have tutored in many courses but focus a lot on helping with Math subjects. Whether non-motivated to extremely motivated, I enjoy working with all different types of students! I love to facilitate learning, start with success and build upon success. I believe I help students develop a "love of learning," rather than the "ol' grind of learning."... First session is the most important session. The student is judging me and sizing me up. I do a lot of "get to know you" while getting a "feel" for the tutoring subject.

Stephanie ...struggling with academics. As a mentor, I coached students with respect to study tactics and test-taking strategies. This experience also taught me that communication is key to the tutoring process. I will be attending graduate school in the fall to pursue a Masters in Public Health. The college and graduate school admission processes have given me a deep familiarity with academic entrance exams. In particular, I am very familiar with the logic and reasoning of...

Joel ...isn’t well suited for every student. I specialize in tailoring my explanations and methods to fit the learning style of each student. This is accomplished by doing more than just drilling the student on formulas and overloading them with exercises. I help each student to develop an intuitive picture of the concept that works for them. In my free time, I make video art out of old cameras, TVs, and VCRs and produce music.

Allison ...My favorite subject to tutor is pre-calculus. I love calculus, and I really enjoy helping people learn the foundation that they will rely on when learning the subject. As a tutor, I believe strongly in positive reinforcement, and frequently remind my students that failure is a natural (and critical) part of the learning process. Outside of academic pursuits, I love to play music (piano, cello, guitar, and occasionally violin), cook and bake, crochet, travel, and...
