Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Government tutors
"... Before this I attended the University of Texas at Austin where I received my Bachelor's degrees in Geography and Humanities. Having been exposed to an eclectic background of liberal arts and hard science I am comfortable tutoring across a broad range of subjects and encourage students to see the inherent connections between their work and real-world applications. Despite my technical background, I am a person who would much rather contemplate the words in a good book rather than the letters of a differential equation. However, my interest in studying the natural world has caused me to suffer through more math classes than I care to count. As a result, I am well-equipped to help 'math-shy' students understand, appreciate, and flourish in a subject that they may have previously disliked. I believe in forging a relationship between the student and the subject matter with the idea being able to answer the question "when will I ever need to know this?" is the first step to understanding. Currently, I live in Houston with my bride, Nathalie, and our great big black lab, affectionately know as "The Bear"..."

"...In these positions, I have helped to provide free tutoring to grade schoolers working on their homework and developing literacy skills, high school students preparing for the Regents and the SATs, and working young people studying to obtain their GEDs. As an individual who still holds fond memories of the talented teachers who influenced my learning and career goals, I have found my time spent as a tutor to be an invaluable and incredibly fulfilling experience. I believe that the children and families with whom I have worked would describe me as a patient, creative, and dedicated instructor, one who endeavors to narrowly tailor her teaching methods to suit the needs of each individual student..."
