Scott "I thoroughly enjoy math and science, and it shows! I've tutored for over seven years and with a Bachelor's degree and Masters in environmental engineering, four years of industry experience and five years as a professional sailor, I have a lot of appreciation for how the world around us works. From the simple process of doubling a recipe, to finding the optimum angle between wind and current to win a sailing race, to deeper questions about the workings of the cosmos, I hope to help students understand and internalize just how important (and useful!) an education in math and science really is!."

Mario "... Biology and Chemistry are my favorite subjects to tutor in because they reflect my teaching philosophy the best. My philosophy includes: having students practice scientific literacy that bolsters content knowledge, learn through strategy based methods meaning applying concepts for the long term, and lastly, correcting misconceptions through experimentation and student-centered learning. Strategies such as hypothesis formation and elaboration of evidence as well as experimental design can be applied cross curricula..."
