"If working on a school or college subject, I will incorporate the students' own classroom texts with my own additional examples or readings. If working for test prep, I would like to work with the student in his or her own test prep book (I will have the same myself) working through specific strategies for each question. My past tutoring and teaching experiences include working with individual college students on English essay writing, Intro Micro- and Macroeconomics, and 4th-5th grade creative writing.

" Helping others understand these subjects is so fulfilling. My favorite part of teaching is seeing students finally start to understand a concept and watching their agitation fade and turn into relief and eventually curiosity with the material. I spent two years of my undergrad at the Math Department tutoring center where I tutored subjects ranging from Elementary Algebra to Multivariable Calculus. In graduate school I was a teaching assistant for an introductory Physics class for one semester. I led laboratories as well as a discussion period to go over homework questions. Being a lifelong student of math and science, I think I have a ...

"My teaching experience ranges from mentoring children ages 3-5 years old in developing their language and literacy skills, to tutoring college students who are tackling tough chemistry topics, and all ages in between. Not every student learns the same way, so I introduce material in different ways until it becomes relatable to the student.

"I've tutored at Penn State's Learning Center as well as students at home. My passion for education comes through in my teaching methods, as I believe that all students have the ability to learn a subject as long as it is presented to them in a way in which they are able to grasp. I use both analytical as well as graphical methods or a combination of the two as needed to cater to each student. Having both an Engineering and Architecture background, I am able to explain difficult concepts to either a left or right-brained student, verbally or with visual representations." ...

"Although I always thought teaching sounded exciting, it was not until I began volunteering in a third grade classroom that I was sure I wanted to pursue education as a career. Since making this decision I have had experience with students of all ages. I taught weekly lessons to 2nd and 4th graders during the first year of my program at Vanderbilt and then student taught in a fifth grade and a kindergarten. Although I enjoy teaching in all subjects, my favorites are language arts/reading, Spanish, and science."
