Tetyana ...lab based course that investigated topics in genetics and developmental biology. I had a lot of fun working hands-on with biological specimens, and it was a thrill to create a contagious learning environment. I believe that every student is unique and a tailored approach to his or her learning style is vital to their success. I strive to identify both the needs and the strengths of each student, and adapt an educational program accordingly.... There are three general realms that I have found to be vital to creating a nourishing educational setting, whether in person or online. First and foremost, I stand to support developing a child's cognitive abilities and learning skills. This also entails encouraging my students' intellectual curiosity and confidence as autonomous learners. I strongly emphasize rational thinking, creativity, and teamwork in my lessons. Secondly, as schooling involves constant interaction with others, the realm of social and emotional development is very important. One of the greatest contributors to this is a student's self-awareness of their motivations and attitudes. Such internal understanding will then be reflected in positive relationships with others and an ability to communicate effectively. The final component to my teaching philosophy is to further the growth of good character. Through incorporation of dialogue on morality and ethics within the context of the curriculum, students can find the value in self-respect, responsibility, and trustworthiness for themselves, all while learning the material they need.

Ekene ...since freshman year winter semester beginning with Abnormal Psychology. I like tutoring and teaching because it's very dynamic. I enjoy seeing the student's perspective and how they approach the material vs how they should change their method of thinking. True comprehension of the material is always the focus as opposed to memorization. I try to take a more hands off approach and let the student tackle the problems or questions as much as possible, with...

Soumith ...was when I was still in high school and was asked to help a few of my neighborhood kids with ACT prep. After successfully helping them improve their score, I realized that I actually loved teaching and continued to tutor other kids with the ACT and with math up to trigonometry. I have been tutored myself before and have learned a vast amount of tips in order to help my students succeed.... My philosophy is to make sure that the student feels comfortable with the material before moving on.

Eli I am a board-certified, licensed naturopathic doctor. Before becoming a doctor I spent several years tutoring and teaching. I have worked with students of all ages, from 3 year olds learning phonics to graduate students studying histology and physiology. I specialize in general sciences, medical sciences, reading comprehension, literary analysis, and composition. I love working with students of all ages and I love to teach.... I love teaching and I love working with kids. I understand that a good teacher needs to combine perception, patience, persistence, and respect. A gifted teacher discerns the uniqueness in each learner, and then tailors their lesson to that learner. I am able to recognize my students' learning needs, and I shape my language in a way that makes information more accessible and digestible. I believe passionately that education elevates both the student and the community, and I approach teaching with the seriousness and devotion that every learner deserves.

Andrew I am a lifelong learner, and I hope to share that mindset while tutoring. I believe that any subject can be interesting as long as your approach it with an open, optimistic mind.... Any subject can be made interesting, with a motivated and optimistic mindset.... In a first session I like to find out a student's strengths and weaknesses. From there, we can determine if our best option is to multiply a student's strengths, or incrementally improve their weaknesses. Also, I like to swap one good joke with every new student.
