Olga ...math and numbers. I promise it really isn't so hard! After all, mathematics is really more about ideas than about arithmetic. Ideas that inform our existence, that permeate our universe, that make up the world around us. I strongly believe that a STEM education is best served by focusing on the concepts, not mundane calculations. There is no better feeling than having a difficult concept "click" -- that a-ha! moment is worth the hours of...

Thomas ...and the second step is the mathematics required to solve for the unknown variable. Understanding how to utilize these two steps is crucial to solving the intimidating problems found in every Physics textbook; this is what I focus on during my sessions - explaining the relationship between theory and mathematics. Based on my experience, I have come to the conclusion that science is a truly elaborate yet surprisingly elegant field of study and mathematics is...

Justine ...tutoring intermittently for friends and family. All of these experiences have been contributed to my teaching style. My philosophy for tackling challenging academic subjects is also an outgrowth of my own personal study habits. I believe that organization is key. I have found that a certain combination of systematic organization and simplification of every detail helps to illuminate the solution. Having a structured and repeatable approach can then be engrained in the thought process through...

In addition, I maintain a position at Sylvan Learning Center as a mathematics tutor, working with students from K-12 in basic math skills as well as in higher level mathematics courses such as...

Selina ...Electrical Engineering. During high school, I tutored math to students before school and worked with my competitive math team members on complex problems after class ended. Now, I am tutoring students in chemistry as well as a range of mathematical subjects. When tutoring, I believe that it is important to break complex problems down in ways that make it easier for the student to see exactly which steps are the most challenging. This way, we...
