"I majored (and have taught) Biology, and I also plan to pursue a career in biological research. I truly love the subject and would relish the opportunity to convince others to love it too! Math and Chemistry are related to Biology and therefore I have a strong background there as well. Unrelatedly, I am fluent in Italian. It was my first language and I lived in Tuscany for 8th and 9th grade."

"I have always loved the challenge and thrill of learning, and strive to convey that same attitude to my students as both a tutor and as a classroom teacher. Too often, particularly in the case of preparing for standardized tests, students are faced with tedious, repetitive, and boring work. My tutoring sessions are engaging, lively, and above all, FUN! I have worked with students ages 5 through 15, and have helped them to tackle a wide array of learning challenges, from English as a Second Language difficulties to memory delays and other learning disabilities. The key to my students' success is that I help them to set clear goals, practice ...

"I have a solid background working with students from elementary school through college in all academic subjects - especially math, SAT prep, and essay-writing. I love connecting with individual students, and each one I meet teaches me how to help the next. My tutoring style centers on breaking down concepts and starting from scratch, while focusing on logical thinking and analytical skills. I want the student to be able to teach their way through solving a problem so they can apply the fundamentals in other places. Working with students one-on-one is great because I get a chance to see what they’re curious and passionate about, and how ...

I have previous experience teaching undergraduate courses at the University of Iowa; I also spent several years working as a teaching artist in St. Louis elementary, junior high, and high schools. As a tutor, I love helping students discover the most creative (yet structurally sound!) ways to express an idea through language.

"That's why I help my students to figure out answers on their own as opposed to telling them the answers. I ask my students questions to lead them through the solving process, which engages them and makes them more likely to learn and remember the material. I also think learning and laughing work well together, so I make my tutoring sessions educational and fun. I graduated from Williams College in 2012, where I majored in biology and completed pre-medical studies. I also spent a semester in Spain, taking all classes in Spanish at a Spanish university." ...

" One of the things I enjoy most about teaching is the knowing that not only can I help my students, but my students help me. I learn from my students each day and I think that has helped me to become a better teacher. I enjoy all of the subjects I teach, it’s hard for me to choose one as my favorite. Math is all around us and I feel it’s important for my students to be aware of that – it doesn’t just happen in a textbook. I want my students to be able to relate math to their lives."

"In college, I loved studying foreign cultures, politics, and economics, and was fortunate enough to spend one semester each in France and Ecuador. I began working as a tutor and teaching assistant at Allegheny, and spent the 2011-12 school year teaching English in a French public high school. Due to my studies and experiences, my best subjects are Spanish, French, government, and economics. I love to discuss and help students understand these subjects.
