Award-Winning Anatomy Tutors in Washington, DC
Theo "... I love all things academia but in particular, the Sciences, English, and writing. Working with students to find confidence in their own voice and style as a writer is particularly rewarding and fun for me. During my own education in a variety of learning environments, I discovered that there is more than own way to learn..."
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..."
Jennifer "...I have also learned how to identify early on when a teaching strategy is not working, so that we can then find numerous work arounds. I know the feeling of being so overwhelmed that learning suddenly seems impossible. In order to move past that, we will first discuss your current approach..."
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..."
Daniel Praise "...In addition, tutoring and mentoring my peers in college also opened up a wide variety of people that I was able to tutor, which increased my ability to tailor my teaching methods to suit each student, so as to help them achieve the most improvement. I have benefited from various tutoring interventions myself, and know the value of having an efficient tutor. My strength as a tutor comes from the fact that I go above and beyond to make sure that not only do my students understand the material being taught, but that they are also able to study efficiently and learn time management skills--skills that can help them improve on their own, even in the absence of a tutor..."
University of Maryland College Park - Bachelors, Physiology and Neurobiology
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..."
Georgetown Universtiy - BA, Psychology
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..."
Christie "...Most important -I encourage my students to ask questions, make comments, even disagree with me. I like making math and science come alive for students. I have successfully worked with elementary, middle school, and high school students..."
