Usha "...After working for three years in Trinidad both in the public and private sectors I migrated to the United States in June 2013.

Jonah "... I have over ten years of tutoring experience, working with students anywhere on the spectrum from kindergarten to graduate school, with a particular focus on high school. I enjoy tutoring a range of subjects, but particularly Math, Science, Economics, and Foreign Languages. Whatever the subject, I am a proponent of the "Teach a man to fish..." approach: rather than just focusing on giving my students the answer, I enjoy helping them understand how to think about the concepts..."
Brian "I got my Masters in Science from Rutgers University in Environmental Science. I'm an energetic and fun individual with a creative approach to learning. I am very flexible and work well with others.."
Jarvis "...Since my graduation, I have regularly tutored different mathematics and science courses such as Physics, Geometry, Algebra I and II, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus. I especially enjoy using guided practice to help others understand a little more about the material and its implications for the real world. I believe that I'm a good tutor because I understand from experience what it's like to not have a natural affinity for mathematics..."
Christie "... I love it when a student has an "Ah Ha" moment and I know that the student understands a concept that was a mystery to them previously. I have the ability to take concepts and teach them in different ways. I tailor my tutoring to fit the learning style of the student..."

I also enjoy career coaching and consulting with teachers..."
Daphne "...I am currently working at the NIH. I have experience tutoring college, high school, and middle school students. During tutoring sessions I like to pinpoint where the problem areas are and begin by working with students on the fundamentals..."
Timothy "...The mix of these two disciplines refined my critical thinking skills, and importantly honed my ability to explain difficult topics in an easy-to-digest way. While at Georgetown I tutored underclassmen in Gen Chem as well as the dreaded Orgo. In addition to answering questions during these tutoring sessions I also tried to give students tips on how to study and ultimately ace a specific class (it definitely helped having been through the wringer myself)..."
Mayuri "...My strengths are in mathematics and chemistry as I have taken countless courses in these subjects. While in school, these were my favorite subjects to study and were the reason I chose to pursue chemical engineering. I can, however, tutor in various other subjects. I have worked as an Ambassador for a Math, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA) Program..."
Lyana "...During my college years I studied biology and dance. I love learning and secretly want to be a student forever. I equally enjoy teaching students..."
