Ally "... As someone with a diverse array of interests who spent a lot of time figuring out how to combine and pursue all of them in the way that fit my goals and skill set best, I am really excited about not only tutoring subject matter, but also helping others think through what they are passionate about and how to pursue it! I also have a genuine appreciation for a variety of subjects and hope to convey that enthusiasm to my students! I have previously taught and tutored formally for numerous standardized tests, and have also worked with middle and high school students on everything from music theory and performance to math, study skills, college preparation, science, ESL, and writing/editing. While I thoroughly enjoy tutoring a wide variety of subjects, I have a particular affinity for tutoring biology, writing, and Spanish. I think that biology can be really fascinating if taught in a way that instills a sense of curiosity and of relevance to our daily lives, and I really enjoy seeing students make connections and ask important questions about how intricate biological processes relate to their broader worlds..."

Conklin "... The most important skill we can develop as students and people is to realize the things that we do not know and find ways to ask questions about them. Whatever these things are, they are most certainly different for everyone, and challenging them and tackling them head on is a sure fire way to grow intellectually. Being an effective questioner and an astute observer of the unknown is a life-long task, and through hard work and focus, I believe anyone can grow into a stronger thinker and a more effective student. I also think science is very fun, and the best way to improve in a subject that may be difficult is to find the parts of it which are enjoyable to you..."
