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..."
Abbas "...Having completed most upper level science and math coursework, in addition to my medical school courses, I know just how hard they can be and they certainly did not come to me naturally. I had to work extremely hard to grasp many of the concepts but I eventually came up with strategies to tackle the material. Having struggled myself, I honestly feel I can relate better to other students in a similar predicament and therefore can better tutor them. As I mentioned before, I just finished medical school and I'm awaiting my residency match..."
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..."
Daniela "I am a graduate from Duke University with a B.S. in Neuroscience and a minor in Chemistry. As a neuroscience major, my focus was on cognitive neuroscience and, particularly, in using electroencephalography (EEG) to understand how visual distractors interfere with ongoing brain processes associated with cognitive performance..."
Duke University - Bachelors, Neuroscience, minor in chemistry
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..."
