"I like doing a lot of outdoor activities like skiing, biking, rafting, mountain climbing, and dirt biking! I also like watching all types of new movies that come out even though I rarely have time! I have tutored many different types of students in the various subjects outlined in my profile. Some people are more visual/auditory/participating learners, which I have adapted to over time as a TA and private tutor. I feel that it is my duty to not only give you the information, but to make sure that you understand to the point that you could teach it to someone else.." ...

" In those terms teaching is processes of engaging students and empowering them to pursue their own learning. To accomplish this a tutor has to wear many hats; that of a mentor, a cheerleader, an expert, and others. Many times in the physical sciences class can seem like an extension of math, an endless list of numbers of formula that are just given as absolutes . The truth is that being able to solve problems is much less important than understanding the underlying concepts present. Having an understanding of these concepts will make the mathematical work that is involved much easier." ...

"I'm drawn to teaching students for two reasons. First, I enjoy seeing the reaction on their faces when they realize they're able to accomplish something they thought was impossible. Watching students succeed is a reward that never gets tiring. Second, I honestly enjoy working on the material personally. When I'm not teaching students how to solve math equations, I'll actually work on some in my free time."

" I have been tutoring for the last 6 years professionally. In general, I try to relate new material that I am tutoring back to concepts that a student has already grasped so that unfamiliar material takes on a familiar character. Furthermore, I try to have a student do some writing, some reading, and some discussion in each lesson, and in this way engage the main three modes of learning. That being said, I try to modify my teaching style to best benefit the type of student I am tutoring."

"The reason why I enjoy tutoring so much is that I get to act as a catalyst in creating a smarter society where students will go on to solve the world's biggest problems in health, education, economy, etc. My tutoring experience started in high school with SAT prep for a group of 3-5 students that needed help (the students attended the same high school as me at the time). Later, I moved on to tutoring students in a more structured environment in subjects involving biology, physics, and more advanced mathematics such as calculus. Although I do follow a very straightforward curriculum, my teaching style is more adaptive than it is rigid." ...
