" I tutored math (algebra-calc3) along with general chemistry at Cochise college for a year, and then worked at Pima Community College West Campus tutoring the same subjects. While at Pima, I received my Level-1 tutor certification through CRLA. Besides formal tutoring, I've been helping people in my life with math since I was a little girl. I have a great passion in the subject and on top of that I absolutely love tutoring."

"I am currently taking a year off in-between my undergraduate coursework and medical school in order to conduct neuroscience research at the University of Arizona's Tucson campus. My diverse background in both the sciences and humanities means that I can tutor a variety of topics ranging from literature to organic chemistry, including the SAT and ACT. I believe I have a talent for communicating ideas and information in various ways to help others learn. I recognized this skill in my junior year of college, when I took non-traditional organic chemistry. This course differed from standard organic chemistry classes in that it was based on ...

" I enjoyed the one on one interaction with each of them as they learned in all subjects. I am patient and try to use different avenues to help students understand the material set before them. Whether doing a problem alongside, drawing a picture, or coming up with an everyday example to aid in understanding, my flexibility is a great asset. I also tutored my high schoolers in their math assignments on at least a weekly basis when they would need help with their homework.."

" I realized that I loved teaching after being a substitute teacher for three years. This gave me experience in teaching all subjects for grades K-12. I made the decision to attend the NAU Elementary Education program. The education I received at NAU was so valuable since many of the instructors were teachers at other schools themselves. During my student teaching, I was fortunate to get an opportunity to work with Title 1 students in the areas of Math and Reading."

"I received a BS in Astrophysics at New Mexico Tech (2001) and worked at the National Solar Observatory in Tucson for several years before pursuing graduate studies. As a graduate student teaching assistant, I have worked extensively in the classroom. My experience ranges from delivering lectures and helping students understand important scientific concepts to working with students on a one-on-one basis. Many of the students I have worked with are non-science majors and finding a way to explain difficult scientific concepts to individual students is something I find rewarding." ...

" Having taken several standardized tests throughout the years, including the SAT, ACT, and MCAT, and a variety of different courses as an Economics major, pre-medicine student, I feel I can help in many different subject areas. I've served in a variety of tutoring roles over the years, but the one I am most proud of was when I helped a 9th grader in algebra a few years ago. As I worked with him throughout the semester, I was able to raise his grade from an "F" to a "B" by the end of the semester. During that time, I really focused on making sure my student understood the basics and fundamental processes before slowly moving ...

" I believe the most effective way to check for understanding is to ask questions which is why my classes were filled with questions. I solve complex problems by breaking them down into small steps which is how I teach my students to solve problems. If I can help a student get a few steps into the problem, they usually began to see the correct direction and are able to find the path to the answer. Challenging my students to think for themselves, asking intentional questions and offering helpful advice and encouragement are what make me a great tutor.-." ...
