Johnita "... I have had experience teaching students of many ages and abilities, and believe that patient and understanding instruction is paramount to a students success. I am very patient and caring, and I take a sincere interest in my students. I consider myself to be a well rounded person, and have many interests outside of my academic field. I enjoy literature and theatre, and I love to travel and see and experience new things..."
Lorna "...My love of nature and the outdoors really strengthened my desire to pursue a career in environmental science. Although science is what I have chosen to study, I am extremely strong in the areas of reading, writing, editing, history and general social studies. In high school I excelled in AP Composition, Literature, World History, and European History. My test scores from high school reflect a strong understanding of the material, and I also excelled at the SAT Subject Test for Literature..."
Austin "I am a friendly individual that has a deep passion for working with those that might need help in certain areas academically. I graduated with a Bachelor's of Environmental Science and a minor in Natural Resource Management but have a lot of experience in many other fields. I am almost 25, am patient, and am willing to spend as much time as it takes to help where I can. I take pleasure in most school subjects and am what many would describe as an outdoor enthusiast in my free time which includes hiking, camping, rock-climbing, and kayaking..."

Michael "I have been teaching and tutoring for the past four years. I recently moved to Tucson after graduating with a Master’s in City and Regional Planning from UNC-Chapel Hill and prior to that obtained a Bachelor’s in Economics and Geography from the University of Georgia. I discovered my love for teaching during a year abroad as a Fulbright Scholar in Chile where I taught group and one-on-one English classes at a university. Since then, I have worked as a Teaching Assistant in grad school and as an English and Spanish instructor here in Tucson..."

Tyler "...I received my MA in Philosophy from Tufts University in 2014, and my BA in Philosophy from Ashland University in 2010. Before earning my MA, I worked for a non-profit that provides non-partisan information about candidates and campaigns. When I'm not working, I enjoy reading scifi/fantasy (Vinge, Bakker, Asimov, Lem), playing video games (KSP, Skyrim, Besiege), and cooking (everything). I love to teach, and I believe in designing personalized study plans for each of my students. This could be a step-by-step plan for writing and editing an essay or a week-to-week schedule for LSAT prep..."
Corinne " Although I believe classes and tests are very important, what I value most are the opportunities for practical experiences that I have had in my preferred subjects. Having the ability to use what I have learned in realistic settings has helped me to learn how to apply what I have been taught and shown me what areas to focus improving on. My hope is to help all the people I tutor to gain confidence in their subjects, and to be able to use said subjects in a 'real world' setting. ."
Suzanne "I have been teaching most of my life. Currently I teach 6th grade GATE Language Arts and Social Studies at a local middle school. Previously, I taught music and reading at the elementary level. I have worked with high school students on college test prep and taught undergraduate Music Theory at the University of Arizona and Yale University. I have tutored Math through high school Algebra privately and am certified to teach middle school math..."
Emily "...I am most comfortable tutoring Mathematics, French, AP World History, and AP US History. I find tutoring the latter two the most gratifying as I enjoy retelling historic events in a more amusing manner, using colloquial diction such as “dude” and “bro.” I believe that learning (especially history) should not be as dry as most people make it out to be and that experiencing emotions while studying will reinforce the information learned. I also feel that these two subjects work best with my tutoring style as I prefer to make metaphors and analogies when conveying information. Outside of school, I enjoy playing Quidditch (the sport from Harry Potter), having been on the U of A’s team for over a year now. I mostly play as a Beater, but I am currently working on my Chaser tactics..."
Valeria "I've been teaching English as a second language in Spain for 5 years, the first year I've completed a M.A in Spanish Literature and I enjoy teaching. It's a rewarding experience when you start to notice the progress in your students. I have worked with kindergarden students up to adults .."

Jasmine "...I have tutored both here in Arizona and overseas, both ESL and Mandarin Chinese. I also have college proficiency in Japanese, which is the third language I learned through my second language. I would love to share my experience and passion with my students and help them achieve their goal, whatever it may be. I am patient, laid back and passionate about sharing my native language and culture with others in a relaxed and casual environment..."
