Zhong "I've been tutoring math and science for the last ten years. I really like this job because I enjoy working with kids, and I also love to talk about my interests. This is a great job.

Murat "A graduate of Yale University, I majored in Religious Studies while also pursing the pre-med track. I have four years of tutoring a wide-range of subjects.

Craig "...While I always enjoyed tutoring undergraduate students, I found great satisfaction in teaching Math to struggling teenagers. From my experiences, I learned that anyone can tackle basic mathematical ideas if they are given proper patience and instruction. Furthermore, I have learned that every student has a unique style of learning..."
Alexander "...I feel this allows the student to behave more comfortably, and in turn, get more out of the material that they are learning. This strategy has worked especially well in the Baltimore City Prison. I do recognize that each student is an individual and may have different ways of learning material..."

Eric "...Previously, I worked as an ESL/English teacher in both Incheon, South Korea, and Shanghai, China, where I taught students from ages 3 to 18, and also provided training to the new teachers. One of my favorite courses was the intensive writing course, where students learned about the writing process, from brainstorming and drafting, through revision, and then finally creating a final copy. The class did an excellent job and created both a class newspaper and a magazine of creative stories..."

While I am no longer in a classroom during the day, I still enjoy helping students reach their maximum academic potential..."

Suzanne "...Before returning to school, I taught high school students with emotional and learning disabilities in a variety of subjects, including math and science. I also spent a year in AmeriCorps, where I was a residential counselor for students in a residential academic program here in Baltimore. There’s no one right way to learn and I believe students are most successful when their instructor is able to meet them where they are..."
Gabe "...I have taught students of all grades and ages, in summer camps and schools, and this hands-on experience guides my work with newer students. I like to think outside the box and encourage students to approach subjects from different angles, in ways they haven't considered before. Everyone learns differently, and I do my best to find what works for every student..."
