Award-Winning Anatomy Tutors in Washington, DC
Kevin "I love helping anyone gain a better understanding in any subject in a way that makes sense to them, building upon a strong background so that he or she can tackle any type of problem in that subject. I'm originally from west Texas, where the schools are not the best, so I can easily understand and empathize with any type of course or school difficulty. I come from a fairly large family, having eight brothers and sisters, and because so, I feel I always do my best to put others ahead of myself and can get along with a wide range of different personalities..."
Neiunna "...I went on to obtain a Doctor of Philosophy degree from Howard University in Biology with a emphasis in Microbiology and Nanotechnology. While at Howard, I taught courses in General Microbiology, Pathogenic Bacteriology and Food Microbiology. In addition, to teaching I also lead study groups in Microbiology and instructed students in independent research projects..."
Ariel "...I answered classmates' questions on the topics, compiled study guides, and was commended for my ability to make otherwise difficult concepts easy to understand. At University of California - Los Angeles, I organized and led many study sessions; and in high school, I tutored younger students in Mathematics, English, foreign languages such as Spanish & Chinese, and the sciences (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Zoology). As someone who has personally experienced how a poor teacher can completely obliterate a love for a subject and how, conversely, an amazing teacher can breathe life into a subject that may have once been considered the bane of her existence, I want to be a positive influence on students..."
ManHua "...Throughout my years of taking science courses in high school and college, I have become skilled at breaking down and organizing complex science concepts into much simpler and manageable concepts to understand. I believe this will really help the students I tutor to learn and grasp the material. It truly brightens my day to see the excitement in students eyes when they finally understand the material after putting in the effort..."
Conklin "... The most important skill we can develop as students and people is to realize the things that we do not know and find ways to ask questions about them. Whatever these things are, they are most certainly different for everyone, and challenging them and tackling them head on is a sure fire way to grow intellectually. Being an effective questioner and an astute observer of the unknown is a life-long task, and through hard work and focus, I believe anyone can grow into a stronger thinker and a more effective student. I also think science is very fun, and the best way to improve in a subject that may be difficult is to find the parts of it which are enjoyable to you..."
Alex "...While not everything can be taught purely in this fashion, I try to make my lessons focus on principles and processes, creating a deeper understanding of the facts presented in class or in the textbook. I find that this technique works very well with math and physics, where understanding the theory is often the key to being able to see a problem and find the right path to a solution. I also try to apply this method to test preparation, so that students aren't just following a test-taking strategy because they were told to, they are using that strategy because they were encouraged to discover it for themselves and they understand why it works..."
Sharnika "...I've been a writing tutor, an ESL volunteer tutor and have devised science programs for children in after school programs. I am a people person who students can feel comfortable with, and I take the time to get to know which learning styles work best with each student. While I offer a broad range of tutoring subjects, my strengths are human anatomy, elementary math, ESL and writing assignments. I am an avid cyclist and bowler and enjoy traveling, foreign films, and reading..."
Jessica "... I really enjoy tutoring especially when you finally see that "aha, I get it!" moment on a student's face. To help every student reach this moment I design plans that match the individual student's interests and abilities while still offering them a challenge. I am encouraging and enthusiastic because learning is a never ending process that should be a positive experience for students..."

Michael "... I also have experience tutoring international college students in math and science. I have fallen in love with tutoring and using my skills in mathematics to help others succeed. I volunteer as much time as possible with the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C..."
Shivani "...I am patient, enthusiastic and a good listener. I enjoy breaking down the complex processes we see everyday in science into simple, understandable steps. I have a huge passion for anatomy and physiology of the human body, and I think that if it was not for the amazing professors I had, I would not have enjoyed learning the subject matter as much as I did..."
