" Prior to working with Varsity Tutors, my previous tutoring experiences include three years of freelance tutoring with students mainly in middle school and high school. I also have two years of experience working in a structured teaching environment as an aide for the Long Beach Unified School District. The subjects I have tutored the most include math and science, though there are a variety of subjects I can tutor. Throughout the years, I have created a teaching style that emphasizes utilization of what each student already knows and helping them create links and critical thoughts based on the foundations they already have. When not at ...

"I also proofread papers and job applications for friends on a regular basis, and I've worked with English-learners on many occasions. It's so rewarding to see people succeed and I want to help in any way I can. After struggling in high school with essays and papers, I came to love to write and I wrote for the campus newspaper at UCSB. One of my biggest goals as a tutor is to teach students to express themselves clearly in any format. A strong writing ability will make any student stand out. Besides tutoring, I am currently an intern for the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition and I also work for Performance Bike." ...

"I tutored college algebra and French and absolutely loved it. I really enjoyed getting to work one-on-one with students and learning how to present the material in a way that clicked for them. I love being able to be a part of those “ah ha” moments! It is so rewarding to see students become confident in their own ability to learn and overcome challenges. I truly believe learning is a lifelong process."

"During the course of my study in France, I was awarded the Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française (French equivalent of the TOEFL) and am now completely fluent in French. I am uniquely situated to teach French grammar, pronunciation, conversation and oral/written comprehension, having painstakingly learned each aspect of this marvelous language during my time in France.

" My first experience tutoring was in high school when I tutored third graders in Math and English on a weekly basis. Currently I volunteer at a shelter where I tutor a variety of ages in reading, writing, and math. I think my fondness for tutoring came from my dad playing math games with me in the car on the way to school as a child. It forced me to think up the simplest way to solve a problem, which became increasingly more fun for me over time."

" I went to NYU and studied Linguistics, and am continuing my studies for an Applied Linguistics Masters here in California. I have been teaching and tutoring for many years, since I started college. I've done private SAT Prep tutoring both here and in New York, as well as prep for other standardized tests such as the ISEE, SSAT, and HSPT. I also teach a bi-weekly SAT Prep course in Glendale, and an advanced Competition Math class for two age groups (6-8 and 9-12). It's a lot of fun! I've always found math pretty neat and like to get students interested in it too! I love to travel and have been fortunate enough to do a lot of it during my ...

"I also speak Moroccan dialect, which is a form of Arabic. Growing up, I assumed everyone spoke multiple languages. However, when I moved out to the US in 1997, I quickly realized that most people speak only one language. For me, it would be extremely fulfilling to help young students learn and develop skills in a foreign language, in my case, French."

"I have also tutored students from elementary to my peers in college, and I use a variety of creative methods to appeal to each group. For children, I realize that a strict, but also fun and laid back atmosphere makes them most receptive to learning! As for people around my age group and teens, I find a way to find what interests them and connect the material to that. In this way, I effectively help the people I tutor with whatever they need. I also make it a point to help them set goals for themselves, both academically and in life."

"I also studied English literature, poetry, and creative writing. After growing up on the east coast in South Florida, then attending college in the Midwest, I've finally made it all the way to the west coast and am a recent transplant to Los Angeles. My tutoring experience started as far back as I can remember with my very own sister who is 4 years younger than me. I helped her with everything from fractions, to AP homework, to college applications and essays."

"My favorite disciplines -- languages, history, geography, and ecology -- are also my pastimes, as they reward me with a sense of wonder for the staggering diversity of human achievements and the rich beauty of the natural environment. I take pleasure in working as a tutor because it is an opportunity to think about my favorite things for hours on end! Even if you aren't quite as excited by your schoolwork as I am, I hope that I can help to make your assignments much less confusing and much more tolerable. I promise to work with you patiently and respectfully, and I take a sincere interest in the success and well-being of my students.." ...
