Award-Winning Elementary Math Tutors in Onion Creek, TX
Bert ...State University. I have several years of experience in higher education. In my two years at Tarleton State University I have taught various levels of college algebra. I have also taught at ITT Technical Institute for two years, covering many electronics and programming classes. I enjoy helping students to see difficult subjects like mathematics and programming in a different light, making the material a little less scary and a lot more understandable.

I have worked with students of varying abilities, including those with learning difficulties and gifted students. I grew up in Chicago, but was born in Ukraine, so I speak Russian fluently. I also...

Cayla ...able to thoroughly help them. I am a very energetic, bubbly, charismatic person who has dedicated her life to helping children, both through teaching and counseling. However, outside of tutoring, I love the outdoors (playing sand volleyball, kayaking on Lake Austin, etc.) and have a big passion for electronic music (both listening to it and creating it). Working for Varsity Tutors is helping me pursue my Master's Degree in Social Work next year. I would...

Melissa ...that learning can be fun. If it is fun, we are more inclined to do it! I love to play logic games, math games, and word games to learn in a new way. Additionally, learning different concepts' real-world applications can make a lesson more meaningful to a student. In my free time, I love to rock climb, run, take my dog to the park, read, do crossword puzzles, and play bass drum in my drum...

Beverly ...are unable to have more time with their teacher, to clarify any concepts the student needs more time on, to explain things in another way, or to review the building blocks that the student needs to complete the tasks at hand. We'll work together to obtain skills and confidence. I've enjoyed working with preschoolers to middle schoolers, and high school students are a great group to interact with. Everyone has their own energy and personal...

Matt ...grade school. I'd describe myself as extremely patient and calm. I always keep a professional demeanor and I understand that everyone learns differently. I also understand that learning this can be frustrating but the reward comes from breaking through those barriers and being able to use that information to help you further. That's a bit about me. I hope I can help you out with whatever subject you want to work on and I look...

Frank ...and shortly afterwards, I tutored several students in subject areas of math and physics. For me, there is nothing more personally rewarding that seeing the mental "light bulb" turn on in a students eyes when they grasp a difficult concept for the first time. My tutoring philosophy is to teach concepts, rather than focusing on memorization. Concepts are best grasped via a methodical, logical, and consistent approach to problem solving. As such, my favorite subjects...

Ricardo ...and then figures what to work on in order to get there. I've been both a student and teacher of guitar, and I try to take that teaching style into my tutoring. I never start by explaining material or by "simplifying" it (because that usually means repeating it again and again!) but by listening to the student and finding out exactly the student already knows and what his or her strengths are, and move forward...

Maria ...decided to tutor at school because they needed someone who could tutor Spanish because they did not have anybody and a lot of students were asking for help; the school contacted me and offered me the job. I had never tutored anybody before I started, but I decided to give it a try since I am very friendly and outgoing and it worked out so well that I stayed with the program until the day...
