"I currently work as the lab manager of the Aging, Memory, and Cognitive Control laboratory in the psychology department at the university.

I will make sure each student understands their material thoroughly, and encourage questions and an interactive environment during tutoring sessions. I'll strive to provide you with the most efficient, effective, and enjoyable tutoring experience I can, and look forward to working with you!."

"In addition to my Education Certification course work, I have a Bachelor of Science in Business Management. Currently, I am part of a "Race to the Top" technology initiative and am well versed in computer software programs and using technology in the classroom. A life-long learner myself, I have found the best part of teaching is in tailoring lessons to maximize individual student success and that is exactly why tutoring is one of my favorite activities! The first step to maximize learning is obtaining and keeping a high level of student engagement and my lessons are created with the objective of keeping students focused on learning and ...

" I realized that I loved teaching after being a substitute teacher for three years. This gave me experience in teaching all subjects for grades K-12. I made the decision to attend the NAU Elementary Education program. The education I received at NAU was so valuable since many of the instructors were teachers at other schools themselves. During my student teaching, I was fortunate to get an opportunity to work with Title 1 students in the areas of Math and Reading."

"I love Spanish and literature, particularly literature in Spanish, and editing in both English and Spanish is something I enjoy doing. I love asking “why” questions and pushing students to understand their academic purpose as well as the right answer! I have studied and done biological research in the field (as well as in the lab) in three different countries, so it's no surprise that I love traveling, living in new places, and learning about new cultures. I have always kept up a strong work ethic to help me succeed in school, even while I was studying abroad in Germany and Peru, and this is also something I try to promote in my students. I try to ...

"I have worked with students from kindergarten to middle school in many different subject areas. I love the learning process, and figuring out how to best design a lesson for a specific student so that learning is fun, engaging and meaningful. For me, learning is not about drilling memorization facts. My ultimate goal with students is to make a connection with them and bring alive pre-algebra, phonics, the questioning mechanics of the SAT - whatever the student is learning. When a connection is made, we can bridge the gaps and make learning fun and lasting." ...

"I graduated from Memorial High School in 2005. Then, I made a major lifestyle change, relocated to Indiana, and graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2009 with a major in Sociology and a minor in Latin American Studies. After graduation, I spent almost two years abroad in Santiago, Chile, teaching English in a K-12 Catholic school, and picked up Spanish fluently and a love of teaching while I was there! I would love to help you work on your Spanish abilities, whether it be for school or for fun!."

"I am particularly interested in conflict, crisis, and how related factors and events can influence decisions in an international context. As an undergraduate I was a TA who worked with introductory psychology students as well as students pursuing more specialize courses in neuropsychology and cognitive psychology. I also helped coach a state-qualifying high-school girls cross-country team. In my graduate career I tutored refugee children who had resettled in the United States. I find that because of my academic background I am easily able to relate to others and help them achieve their goals." ...

" Both of my parents taught high school social studies, so you might say teaching runs in the family! I believe that every student has the capability to achieve academically, but that, sometimes, traditional classroom instruction isn't quite enough to lead each student to his or her potential. Working one-on-one with a student allows me to target areas of weakness, while increasing his confidence in his ability to achieve. Standardized testing isn't particularly fun, but getting into the college of your dreams is, and conquering the SAT and/or the ACT is an important step in the process. Tutoring sessions don't have to be unpleasant or ...

" When I graduate I plan to research and teach at the college level. I would hazard a guess that this illustrates at least part of my love of education and school. Because of this belief I have been tutoring students since I began my undergraduate studies at Ohio State University, and I continued to do so while getting my Masters degree at the London School of Economics. In both of these cases I tutored specific subjects, but it was also with an aim of improving test scores."

"While at the University of Arkansas during my graduate degree program, I completed a one-year internship at a local elementary school with three placements: third grade for nine weeks, first grade for 18 weeks, and kindergarten for seven weeks. It was also during this internship I created and implemented a math intervention for the first graders to better develop their number sense awareness. The students were later measured on a quarterly district math test and received an overall average score of 90%. I graduated from the University of Arkansas Graduate School with a 4.0 cumulative GPA. It is my aspiration as an educator to engage, ...
