"We teach them many things and hope that they will learn how to learn by themselves. However, often students are trained to learn the letter of the information but not the spirit. I aim to push past understanding the material with each student so that they can also see the approach to learning. This allows them to tackle new problems more effectively because they understand how to approach a problem they do not know how to solve."

"Teaching is not about telling children what the "right" answer is, it's about showing them how to find the answer. I love tutoring because I enjoy being the one who guides these young minds as they figure out the world of academics. I understand that students achieve more when they have a tutor who can motivate them. To do this, I believe in creating a personal connection with my students and showing them that I expect great things from them."

"As a result I have had the pleasure of teaching students of all ages and educational backgrounds, from adult African tour guides learning English, to Asian refugee children being introduced to the American school system. Although I have a strong biology background, I am very familiar with most sciences and math levels and can confidently teach any student in these areas. I feel that everyone has their own pace at which they learn and as a tutor it's my responsibility to tailor the subject to each individual student. In my experience, the worst attitude a student can have is to be negative about their abilities, one should never ...

"I started tutoring in high school and have been hooked ever since! I enjoy helping others succeed in any way I can. After spending a few years helping students in my hometown prepare for the SAT, I've more recently focused on the hard sciences. I've taught students of all ages in the past and I believe it is important to curtail your teaching methods to the student's favorite learning style. Whether you're a visual, auditory or tactile learner (or some combination of all three!), I'm confident I can assist you in understanding and mastering difficult concepts! I plan to matriculate to medical school in the summer of 2014 after taking a gap ...
