Award-Winning Computer Science Tutors in Shawnee Mission, KS
Chad ...well as online tutoring in high school calculus and physics. I've had great success on the SAT and ACT as well as my AP tests in high school, and I hope to help others succeed as well. My favorite subject to tutor is physics because I feel like learning to apply a few fundamental principles to different real world situations is extremely useful in any discipline. While tutoring I try to help students master the...
Vaishnavi ...the Math and Resource Center at UMKC, I have gained many skills that allow me to be confident that my students have effectively mastered what they are learning in the classroom and are able to apply it to real-life situations. I have learned to adapt to the individual needs of each student. Furthermore, I also volunteer at the UMKC Dream Project, an organization in which we tutor middle school and high school students from the...

Jordan ...like the ACT with everyone from my 10 year old nephew to my classmates in school. I don't think that science and math has to be as intimidating or scary as the world makes it out to be. Often times if we don't understand something, it's simply because it hasn't been explained to us in a way that caters to our strengths. I love math and the predictive nature of numbers. If I'm not in...

Christopher ...it to someone else. Because of that, when I was in school I would regularly be tutoring other students. I also spent hours and hours tutoring others over the Internet. For me teaching is an adventure. Everyone has different perspectives, and when you are teaching you have to be able to both provide a new perspective and to understand (so as to enlarge) someone else's perspective. In my non-teaching time, I am interested in Physics...

Ronda ...a teacher after I was encouraged by my daughter's second grade teacher. The decision to choose Special Education was fostered from watching my sister and other children struggle with reading, writing, math, and other studies. I've been fortunate enough to watch my students learn, grow, become confident, self-advocate, and achieve in furthering their education or skills after high school. It is without a doubt the best feeling in the world to see a student years...

Mike ...of Art in German, and in doing so, am putting myself in the shoes of those I hope to help. During my college career, I found myself helping a variety of people with a number of subjects ranging from history to science to writing- not to mention the number of programs I helped debug and the number of people I worked with to remember a variety of tenants that make up today's IT world.... To bring out a student's potential, one must engage them in meaningful dialogues that force the student to not only think about the subject matter at hand, but to also relate it to his or her own experience.

Jared ...on-the-job experience. I remember working toward my Computer Science bachelor's degree and sometimes feeling very lost and confused. Professors would at times use jargon that was unfamiliar to me (often using acronyms), and sometimes they assumed I understood concepts that I hadn't even begun to master. I'm here for students who need to catch up, bring up that grade, or simply increase their odds of acing a course. I understand real life scenarios from real...

Rusty ...I found even though I was the one doing the teaching or tutoring, the student most always had an idea to offer as well. Once the student has reached 'The Archimedes Eureka Moment', the 'what else can I do with this?' and the 'what if?' questions are infectious and quite often leads to further comprehension and understanding for both the tutor and the student. Which is why I do what I do.
