"I also have some experience working with adults. I have a very interactive style of tutoring that involves asking many questions and using analogies to illustrate my point. This method ensures complete understanding of material before moving on to the next point. I also check in frequently with the student to make sure that my approach to tutoring is compatible with the students' learning methods. If it isn't, I try something different."

"I majored in neuroscience and behavior in college, so I learned a lot about biology and psychology, and plan on getting a Master's in bioengineering. I spent two years serving with the Peace Corps in Peru, where I learned to speak Spanish, build stoves out of adobe, and a lot about life in rural communities. In my spare time I enjoy playing harp and guitar, learning new languages, and being outdoors."

"I'm happy to help students with any of the sciences, including college courses, English, or test prep for the SAT or MCAT. I will do everything I can to help you see results, and I'm also going to try my best to make sessions enjoyable because studying is painful enough already without a tutor making it worse. I try to make sure that I don't add to students' stress and help them relax while working through their studies with me. My basic philosophy with tutoring is to assess which areas are challenging and which areas are easy, then develop a plan to focus on the most difficult areas and build skills there." ...

"I know I've done my job right when a student has the confidence to defend their answers and don't just look them up in the back of the book. In the past I have tutored students from elementary school all the way to college. I've given instruction in three different chemistry lab classes, and have helped students raise their grade in both Math and English. I prefer students who want to learn and are ready to put in the time and work necessary to make the grade.."

" I enjoy watching students overcome intimidating material once they learn the fundamentals. Having taken many tests myself, I appreciate the difficulty of preparing and managing time during a test. I show students how to proceed through test questions quickly and manage time during a test. Test prep is necessary in today's education system, and I believe it's important to help students cope and excel through these pressure situations. I always emphasize with students that their goal is not a perfect score, but rather the ability to proceed efficiently through questions without second guessing." ...
