"I received a BS in Astrophysics at New Mexico Tech (2001) and worked at the National Solar Observatory in Tucson for several years before pursuing graduate studies. As a graduate student teaching assistant, I have worked extensively in the classroom. My experience ranges from delivering lectures and helping students understand important scientific concepts to working with students on a one-on-one basis. Many of the students I have worked with are non-science majors and finding a way to explain difficult scientific concepts to individual students is something I find rewarding." ...

"Through this job, I learned to teach other students how to incorporate good study skills into their work. From tutoring my fellow classmates in AP Calculus 1 and 2 and intermediate Spanish, I was able to engage in a higher level of academic tutoring and develop more direct methods to explain concepts. I feel that the knowledge, encouragement and patience that I enjoy offering to the most frustrated student really makes the difference. It is my optimistic attitude and driven spirit, combined with my strong knowledge and familiarity with core subjects, that makes me an effective tutor." ...

" I enjoyed the one on one interaction with each of them as they learned in all subjects. I am patient and try to use different avenues to help students understand the material set before them. Whether doing a problem alongside, drawing a picture, or coming up with an everyday example to aid in understanding, my flexibility is a great asset. I also tutored my high schoolers in their math assignments on at least a weekly basis when they would need help with their homework.."

" I believe the most effective way to check for understanding is to ask questions which is why my classes were filled with questions. I solve complex problems by breaking them down into small steps which is how I teach my students to solve problems. If I can help a student get a few steps into the problem, they usually began to see the correct direction and are able to find the path to the answer. Challenging my students to think for themselves, asking intentional questions and offering helpful advice and encouragement are what make me a great tutor.-." ...

" Having taken several standardized tests throughout the years, including the SAT, ACT, and MCAT, and a variety of different courses as an Economics major, pre-medicine student, I feel I can help in many different subject areas. I've served in a variety of tutoring roles over the years, but the one I am most proud of was when I helped a 9th grader in algebra a few years ago. As I worked with him throughout the semester, I was able to raise his grade from an "F" to a "B" by the end of the semester. During that time, I really focused on making sure my student understood the basics and fundamental processes before slowly moving ...
