David "...In college, I loved studying foreign cultures, politics, and economics, and was fortunate enough to spend one semester each in France and Ecuador. I began working as a tutor and teaching assistant at Allegheny, and spent the 2011-12 school year teaching English in a French public high school. Due to my studies and experiences, my best subjects are Spanish, French, government, and economics. I love to discuss and help students understand these subjects..."
Pooja "...My favorite subject is English and everything related to it - essay writing, literature, AP tests, critical reading, language arts, college essays, etc. My teaching philosophy is to make learning applicable, approachable, and achievable. I have many interests outside of my studies - from fashion, shopping, reading, adventuring, exploring the city, hiking, photography, and design..."
Daniel "I started tutoring when I was in high school, myself, where I volunteered as a "Big Brother", helping incoming freshmen adapt themselves to the more rigorous environment of St. Paul's. While an undergraduate at Columbia University, I taught SAT prep courses. I will be going to law school in the fall, and until then I am continuing my passion for teaching with Varsity Tutors! My tutoring style has always been to fit the lesson to the student..."
Andrew "...I am fluent in Spanish, having studied and spoken the language since 2000, and having lived in Mexico City for two years, completing my master's degree in a program conducted entirely in Spanish. My favorite subject to tutor is mathematics; I love helping students arrive at a solution in the way that's best for them. I would describe my teaching and tutoring philosophy as one that constantly engages the students to be aware of their problem-solving process..."
Christopher "... Outside of the High School Classroom, I can tutor for college essay writing, public speaking, reading, and general writing skills. The subjects that I am most passionate about tutoring are history, economics, and geography. My teaching style consists of compartmentalizing any topic into small, manageable pieces of information, then putting together the big picture once the parts are understood. I will also only start a lesson at the point where a student can confidently understand the information and then work forward from there..."

Richard "...I worked in an after-school/summer school program for four years where I was in charge of students of varying ages ranging from third grade to seniors in high school. I have taught both SAT and SAT II classes, as well as subject classes including Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus. Almost all of my students saw a huge improvement in their scores..."
Olga "...I promise it really isn't so hard! After all, mathematics is really more about ideas than about arithmetic. Ideas that inform our existence, that permeate our universe, that make up the world around us. I strongly believe that a STEM education is best served by focusing on the concepts, not mundane calculations..."

After Peace Corps I helped launch a technology startup in New York City that partnered with taxi drivers..."
