" I finished my degree in just three years at Rice and have a passion for academics. I tutor a wide variety of subjects, but I especially love to prepare students for standardized testing and college entrance exams. I've learned that success on standardized tests depends on the strategy with which the student approaches the test. I have taken many standardized tests on my way to becoming a National Advanced Placement Scholar and National Merit Scholar; I love to share my successful test-taking strategies with other students."

" I love Math as it is something ordered and universal by which we can understand the world around us. I've been assisting others with Math and Latin from my sophomore year in high school, and have since been very active. I strive to be more than a simple talking textbook, and work patiently and personally with my students to come to a deeper understanding and appreciation of their subject matter. I always try to get to know each of my students on a personal and intellectual level.."

"I went to school in Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. I first started tutoring as a volunteer for middle school students who were struggling in math. Over the years, I've worked with students on various subjects ranging from Spanish (my mother is from Mexico City) to history. I've always enjoyed working with people, and I love being able to instill confidence and hope! In my free time, I like to explore Houston and the globe! My next trip will hopefully be to South America in the Spring!."

"I actually enjoy working out math problems (especially Trigonometry and Calculus) as it gives me a sense of accomplishment like solving a puzzle. I would also say that I have a great sense of humor and a positive personality. My goal in tutoring is to present the material in a creative way that engages the student. In my opinion, when it comes to mathematics, a student's biggest enemy is low self confidence."

" Although I have a degree in science, my first love is math. I have tutored various math subjects from basic math to college trigonometry for friends, family, coworkers and their children, and struggling students. I believe that tutoring is a two-way street.

" I graduated from the University of Houston with a B.S. in Biology and a minor in Chemistry but became a teacher because of how much I enjoy teaching kids. I grew up being very involved in our church's nursery ministry and discovered my true passion to help kids learn and grow. Part of the reason I became a teacher is because of the gratification I receive from teaching. I truly enjoy watching my students learn and grow as the year progresses."
