"I have extensive experience in History, Math, English, English Language Development, and SAT prep among other subjects, but my specialty is in motivating students. I believe it is essential for a student to enjoy our tutoring sessions. I build on every success, small or large, with lots of praise, and I correct students' mistakes without judgment. Watching the light bulb come on in my student's head at that moment of understanding is priceless to me."

"I tutor Spanish and English literature, grammar and composition, math from elementary school through Algebra 2 and Geometry, and ISEE preparation. My expertise in Spanish and English comes from years of translating and especially editing translations (nine years). My expertise in math comes from me being a bit of a nerd (ok - maybe more than a bit). I first tutored algebra and geometry while I was still in high school. More recently, I have been tutoring my own daughters (14, 11, and 7)— an adventure for me, as their different learning styles keep me on my toes." ...

"I have enjoyed tutoring since I volunteered as a tutor in high school, but I really fell in love with it at Stanford with an organization called WYSE (Women and Youth Supporting Each Other). WYSE is a group that mentors middle school girls in East Palo Alto, and I started off as a mentor and became one of the directors of the organization. I really enjoy helping high school students with test prep, because I remember how stressful it was for me and I like to remind students that regardless of how it may seem, the SATs are not impossible and not the end of the world! My approach is practical and takes some of the anxiety out of test-taking, I also love ...

" Growing up, I loved exploring nature and spent many family vacations on camping trips, canoeing, and skiing. These first experiences with the natural world led me to a strong passion for sciences, particularly biology and ecology. In the past, I have taught college labs in physical geography, earth science, botany, and conservation. My fundamental belief in teaching and tutoring is that everyone has the ability to learn and achieve academically, and my role is to foster that and help students to see that in themselves."

" My ultimate goal is to become a nurse practitioner. I am a nontraditional student that returned to school in the beginning of 2011 and quickly became a mentor to several of my classmates.

I love helping students understand complicated concepts in science and am especially skilled with life sciences."
