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..."
Steve "...In both employment and volunteer situations, I have extensive experience with childhood education, having tutored at a boys’ elementary charter school in Brooklyn; worked as a site assistant at a YMCA elementary after school program in New Hampshire; tutored at a women’s shelter in Boston; acted as a reading buddy at a Boys and Girls club in Boston; and volunteered at a nursery school in New Hampshire. In addition to these formal settings of education assistance, I was a counselor at a co-ed YMCA summer camp for six years, which gave me countless opportunities to grow my own understanding of how kids learn. I tutor elementary math and reading and truly love both subjects. I believe elementary education is as much about understanding the student’s way of thinking and helping her or him absorb the material in a way that compliments that approach as it is a one-way impartation of knowledge..."
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..."

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..."
Jun "...I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Financial Mathematics and Financial Engineering and another Bachelor’s Degree in Economics. I am now a student of Master of Quantitative Finance at Rutgers University. As a student, I am always willing to help those students in need by giving them suggestion and sharing my own experience with them..."
Benedetto "...This way you will not forget a year later or blank out during the exam. I do it the way children learn how to talk, long before they read a grammar book. You will practice solving a ton of problems, and only then figure out the rules you unknowingly just applied..."
John William "...At Middlebury I double majored in Economics and History and minored in Spanish. Since graduating over four years ago, I have held two very different jobs! Directly after graduating, I served as a Youth Developement Peace Corps Volunteer in Peru. For two years I lived with a host family in the Andes Mountains and developed sustainable programs in preventative healthcare and education! After Peace Corps I helped launch a technology startup in New York City that partnered with taxi drivers..."
