Stefana ...get frustrated because I too, have had to ask for help before when I was confused about something, and fully understand the circumstances! It is never a proper learning environment when the tutor gets frustrated with a student asking for help.

Joshua ...and math to physical processes. It's my belief that the real factors for success are time and effort, everyone has the ability to be an expert with practice and the true challenge is learning to focus on the skills someone wants to improve. I'm a huge fan of live music, hiking, swimming, running, movies and tea or ideally any combination. I enjoy anything that can represent scientific concepts, which is pretty much everything, and my...

Christopher ...I myself am very passionate about these subjects, and think about many the core concepts a lot outside of class, so I have a wholesome understanding of them. I always like to emphasize "the basics" or "the building blocks" when I tutor, because oftentimes these concepts can be easily forgotten, and having a more wholesome understanding of the basics can almost always make the rest of a subject "click," especially in math or hard sciences....

Richard ...face when he understands a concept is priceless. The power a student feels when she is able to understand and solve problems is unlimited. I believe that people learn best when they can connect the material they are trying to learn, to something they already know. I try to help students make those connections. When I am not working, I enjoy Astronomy and have started participating in HAM Radio. I am also working on several...

Lawrence My tutoring experience ranges from teaching a mid-20s Bloomberg employee how to program in Python to helping fellow MIT computer science undergraduates understand the more thorny minutiae of digital system design. I spend most of my free time programming, reading about transportation and politics, and playing softball most summer weekends.
Nathan ...curriculum and can help tutor Math and Science. I enjoy helping others learn, and I enjoy teaching others computer skills. I like seeing the students I have worked with develop confidence in their work and I prefer to stress the ability to tie several programming concepts together rather than focusing on ultra-specific details. I think it is more important for the students I work with to have the ability to think outside the box and...
