"In my spare time in college, I was also known to help out my peers in various subjects, including math, accounting and essay composition. I love breaking down topics for the students and helping them understand concepts on a basic level and building up from that. I absolutely love the feeling of helping a student work through confusion and reach understanding. I believe every student is different and learns differently. Therefore, I believe in getting to know what works for the student and how to work with them on a level that they understand so that they may be successful in their endeavors. I am a very patient person and love interacting ...

"I tutor all subjects, but I mainly focus on math and sciences as those are my passion. Growing up my dad, an Electrical Engineer, used to do math with me for fun. It became ingrained in me and I thoroughly enjoy all levels of math. In my high school I began a Big Brother Big Sister program in which high school students paired up and tutored students from an adjacent elementary school."

"I love ocean science because it calls on knowledge from all the branches of science: physics, biology, and my favorite subject, chemistry. As a graduate student, I have enjoyed being a teaching assistant and helping students learn to enjoy the college science classes that I enjoyed so much. My teaching philosophy focuses on the idea that different students learn different ways and as a TA or a tutor, I strive to express different ways of thinking about problems. The teacher presents information one way, and I'll express it two or three different ways until one sticks! I also think that college bound high school (or middle school) students ...

" I also worked for Mad Science for a couple of years, where I taught fun, hands-on science lessons to elementary and middle school students. During my graduate program I worked part-time for UCLA Bruincorps, where I tutored middle school students in math and mentored a team of undergraduate tutors. For the past year I worked in an affordable housing community where I ran an after school program for students of all ages. This often included helping students with their homework and tutoring them when they did not understand the concepts they were learning." ...

"I like to draw, I like figuring out puzzles, I like to flip problems upside down (usually not literally) to solve them and explain to others how to reached the end. I am a recent UCSD graduate with a passion for learning and a drive to help others. Consequently, I’ve worked in education most of my life and aspire to become a medically/educationally transparent pediatrician. I feel all knowledge is accessible to anyone who wants it, so if you ask me, I’ll teach you anything I know how. If there’s ever a concept I come across that I don’t know, I’ll have fun working it through with you any way possible." ...
