"If one way of explaining something doesn't work, I'll try a second. And a third, and a fourth, and a fifth. I will try as many different methods as it takes for something to "click". Third, I won't talk over your head."

"I do my best to keep lessons fun and interesting by connecting them to a student's interests whenever possible. I believe that one-on-one help is often the best pathway to success, and I enjoy individualizing my lessons to a student's interests and needs. My background is in Linguistics and Communication Disorders, but I have always loved math and science as well. When I'm not tutoring or studying for my own classes, you'll often see me reading, baking, or going for a walk.."

"I am currently pursuing a Master's of Education in math at Northwestern University, but my passion for learning and education long precedes my formal degree. Prior to returning to school, I worked in management consulting, where I often needed to explain complex quantitative analysis to clients unfamiliar with the math; this helped me develop the ability to understand and explain various approaches to quantitative concepts, which in turn enables me to identify and address causes of confusion. I love working with students in a one-on-one setting that allows me to adapt my explanations to fit a student's individual needs.." ...

"Each year, the students form small groups, create their own businesses and participate in competitions on a local, regional, and national level. One of the things I enjoyed most was meeting with these groups of students outside of the classroom to work on their business plans, practice their presentations, and help them work through any challenges and feel confident about their work and preparation for the competitions. I have a variety of teaching and training experiences in different contexts. After receiving my bachelors degree in Business Administration from Truman State University, I joined a team of trainers at a financial ...

"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. At my core I am a problem solver; I find satisfaction in using teamwork to complete tasks that may not have otherwise been achievable."

" I've been tutoring high school students for the past three years. My goal in tutoring is for my students to learn what questions they need to ask themselves when the going gets tough. If I'm teaching a language, for example, I help my students not only with translating particular sentences, but with forming a method of translation for themselves. That way, they have the tools to solve further difficulties even when I'm not there."
