Hayley "...I have also with children with Asperger’s, autism and cerebral palsy as a camp counselor in my hometown of Atlanta. As far as tutoring is concerned, I most enjoy helping students with Writing, Spanish and Geometry.

Nickolas "...I loved my time with these two programs because I was able to help K-8th graders with their task of learning fundamental concepts that would help them acquire new knowledge for the rest of their lives. I've also had some experience in helping classmates with subjects such as Organic Chemistry and Physical Chemistry. I strongly believe in the idea that, if a tutee does not understand a concept, it is my fault for not having conveyed the concept effectively and in concrete terms..."
Greg "...In my second year there, I led my students to pass the standardized math test at a rate 15% higher than the state average! I eventually moved to St. Louis to be with my wife and continued to work in the classroom. Come June, I will be changing careers, but I still want teaching to be a part of my life - that's why I chose to become a part of Varsity Tutors! I'm most passionate about helping students get excited about math and computer science by helping them defeat their fear of numbers..."

Kanushri "...Until then, I want to build upon the teaching skills I have already gleaned in my different tutoring experiences. Throughout my four years at college, I devoted a lot of time outside of the classroom to tutoring fellow university students in Mathematics through my major department. I also started a volunteer tutoring organization with my friends through which we mentored students at a local low-performing high school and guided them through their Math and English curricula..."

Jennifer "...Instead of tales of fantasy and fiction, however, these are stories about how the world works. Students like working with me because of my ability to communicate information in a way that they can understand (i.e. I tell the story they want to hear)..."
Meghan "... I have been tutoring for the last 11 years, whether privately or through Varsity Tutors. I have worked with children in the K-8 setting who have Specific Learning Disabilities, attention disorders, and students who need just that extra push to get homework finished. My main goal as a tutor is to make homework an easy and pain free task..."
