"I have ambitions to someday affect educational policy and administration - maybe I'll be a principal or school superintendent. In college, I coordinated a reading program with local elementary school students that took place once a week. I also tutored at my college's writing center, working with fellow college students to improve and enhance writing assignments in all disciplines and to strengthen basic grammar and organizational skills. I am excited to be a Varsity Tutor, instilling a passion for learning in my students through experiential, hands-on education that promotes critical thinking skills." ...

"I completed a B.A. at Yale University in the History of Science & Medicine in May of 2011, and I am eager to work with Varsity Tutors in order to help other students achieve their academic goals. I have been tutoring at a variety of levels since I was in elementary school, and have discovered that I truly love the opportunity to help others gain a better understanding of whatever subject matter is at hand. Reading and writing are my specialty; words are something I have always found to have great power, and assisting others in expressing their thoughts in nuanced, articulate ways has become a great passion of mine." ...

"I have published a scientific paper as a first author, released software programs online, and have several United States and international patents. I scored 1520 on the GRE and am currently preparing to take the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) to apply to medical schools for entry in 2014-2015. In the meantime, I strongly look forward to tutoring students in K-12 and college level science and mathematic subjects.."

" It was in my freshman year at Muhlenberg that I was first trained as a tutor. Ever since I have been tutoring Math, Chemistry and standardized tests. Tutoring is a pleasure to me, I particularly enjoy helping students reach that 'aha' moment, where they gain an insight into a particular concept. As of January 2012 I have tutored more than 20 students for a total of nearly 500 hours. In the future I will be attending graduate school in Chemistry, and will later continue as an educator, hopefully on the university level.."

" A straight-A high school student, I was always asked to help my brother with his studies, which didn't come as easily to him. When I was a peer tutor at Harvard University, I discovered how enjoyable and rewarding it was to help other people understand our school's Freshman computer requirement and how I could use my knowledge, skills and tricks to help them break down and overcome a daunting goal. I was an officer in the U.S. Navy, where I learned to lead and teach people from all walks of life, and also saw first-hand how adding inspiration and encouragement helped our whole team do better, and feel better about it." ...

" “There's no use trying,” she said. “One can't believe impossible things.” “I daresay you haven't had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” -Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland My goal is to share with students the beauty of mathematics and to enable them to become fluent in its language."

" I BELIEVE THAT ANY STUDENT CAN MASTER THESE CONCEPTS, REGARDLESS OF HOW THEY CURRENTLY FEEL ABOUT THEIR MATHEMATICAL ABILITIES OR INTEREST LEVEL, SO LONG AS THEY HAVE TWO THINGS: 1. A desire to learn the material (a desire to survive the course or test will do) 2. A teacher who is creative enough to understand how the student thinks, and can adapt lessons into the student's "own language" accordingly IF YOU BRING THE FORMER, I’LL BRING THE LATTER. My previous tutoring experience has taught me one thing above all else: everybody learns differently, and effective teachers are the ones who can adapt." ...

"I specialize in test prep such as SAT, ACT, or GRE, though I certainly teach other areas of math as well. I take student-centered approach by tailing my teaching to the needs and skills of students. I am friendly, encouraging, and patient. Most of my students have made the achievements they wanted and I have many success stories about my students.."

"It is a personal goal to make science and math more accessible; I was fortunate to have an inspiring science teacher early in my education, and enjoy passing on that love for understanding natural processes, particularly in biology and chemistry. In addition to tutoring I work in an active cancer research lab, and have hands-on experience with microbiology and molecular biology techniques. I like to teach with real-world examples, mnemonic devices, and visual aids; making connections and drawing one's own conclusions are lasting tools in learning that far surpass what memorization and rote work can achieve. I am also fluent in ...
