Award-Winning Calculus Tutors in Tucson, AZ
Wouter "...During college I worked as a teaching assistant and after graduating, I worked as an educator for an environmental non-profit teaching middle and high school students hands on, experiential marine science lessons. I went to high school here in Tucson at Catalina Foothills and I studied abroad in Vancouver Island, Canada for two years, completing the I.B. diploma. My philosophy of education is focused on sharing my own passion for a subject and developing a similar appreciation in the students that I work with. I believe that this passion is essential for effective learning to happen, namely learning should never be rote memorization that fades away after an exam but something that persists and ultimately grows..."
Johnita "... A lot of my work there has involved working individually with students in chemistry, physics, biology, earth science, various math classes, and a variety of electives. I have traditionally preferred tutoring physics and math, but recently constructed a chemistry course that has built my enthusiasm for that subject. I have had experience teaching students of many ages and abilities, and believe that patient and understanding instruction is paramount to a students success. I am very patient and caring, and I take a sincere interest in my students..."
Gabi "I am a junior at the University of Arizona studying Chemical Engineering. I began tutoring underclassmen students in many mathematics and science based courses for the Chemical Engineering Honor Society. From that experience I learned that having a solid understanding of the basics is the best way to learn new concepts. As a current student I understand the struggles that many of you are dealing with..."
Reilly "...I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona, and I've spent the past 5 years tutoring local students in Math. I received a perfect score of 800 on the SAT Math portion. I took every AP math course available to me in high school: AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, and AP Statistics; receiving scores of 5, 5 (with a 5 on the AB subsection), and 3 respectively. I also have extensive experience in dealing with ADD/ADHD in relation to both academia and day-to-day life. But more important than all of this is the fact that I, quite candidly, love my job..."
Hannah "...I got my undergraduate degree in Mathematical Sciences with a minor in Chemistry from Barry University. After graduation, I volunteered at a K-12 school in a little community called La Argelia Alta in Quito, Ecuador. I spent two months teaching Math, Science, and English to both students and adults in addition to helping with the community soccer team and working in the church. I am currently pursuing a Masters degree in Cellular and Molecular Medicine at the University of Arizona..."
Uzma "...I have come to realize that the skills and knowledge acquired in one-on-one tutoring will be used by young people throughout their whole lives. Therefore, as a tutor, I hope to be a role model who cultivates in young people open minds and the knowledge and ability to look at the world critically. My engineering background from North Carolina A&T State University and Iowa State University (where I gained my Bachelors in Electrical Engineering and my Masters in Computer Engineering, respectively), in addition to the knowledge I gained while working in the corporate world, will enable me to provide practical examples for the students that I tutor. I have been teaching music to students of all ages for the last five years, and I also volunteer at various robotics competitions (which I have enjoyed greatly)..."
Lucas "...I am so passionate about Math that my ultimate goal is to become a Professor of Mathematics at the University of Arizona. I am a former athlete and it wasn't until I went to college that I realized that Math could be enjoyable. While working with students, I try to keep the environment lively. I want them to enjoy Math and Science too..."
Amy "I am a graduate student at the University of Arizona working on a PhD in Applied Mathematics. I received a Bachelors and Masters of Art in Mathematics at Bryn Mawr College. I have both taught and tutored College Algebra and Calculus I at the University of Arizona. I also have experience teaching Algebra and Pre-Calculus from a year that I spent working with a high school mathematics teacher, and I have experience tutoring for the GRE..."
Jeremy "As an applicant, I hope to offer my distinguished record of service as an after school tutor, in addition to the benefit of my 7 years of professional teaching service, to your organization. I have had additional professional development as an instructor with the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, attended conferences for additional training with the National Science Teacher Association, and am myself a published researcher. I have a great deal of experiential depth and understanding of my subject matter to offer struggling and promising science students alike, and my strong math background makes me well suited to tutor students outside of my normal comfort zone. I have a history teaching students from 6th grade all the way up to underclassmen at the college level, and 7 years of teaching experience with high schoolers..."
Simin "I'm currently a medical student at University of Arizona School of Medicine and am working toward becoming a surgeon. I love Anatomy and Physiology! My undergraduate degree was in Chemistry and Biology and I was a student tutor for General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry I and II. Since college, I've spent time as a volunteer tutor for high school and middle school students from disadvantaged backgrounds. I love teaching and I think there's nothing quite as exciting as helping someone truly understand a topic they've been struggling with..."
