"I've been tutoring just about everything except music theory over the last six years, and I find it really fulfilling. Call me a nerd, but I love learning as much as I can. I spend a solid amount of time reading articles about physics, linguistics, math, international events; you name it. Being able to relate study material to the real world is imperative! I'm well equipped to answer the question "when will I ever need this?" in a satisfying way. I don't expect you to geek out to the degree that I do, but enthusiasm is contagious and it's my job to make sure that you enjoy learning! I was one of those kids who never had to try or study and ...

"I enjoyed the work so much I moved to Thailand and taught English in Songkhla, a small town near the Malaysian border. That experience led me to many more international jobs. I've lived and worked overseas for over 10 years in Thailand, Hong Kong and London. At each stop along the way I've been privileged to be known as a reliable resource for those needing assistance with their English. Native speakers and ESL students alike. My approach is simple: I move at your pace until I'm confient you understand the material."

"Louis and am pursuing my major in history and minors in political science and psychology. I plan on attending law school after I graduate. I have had extensive experience tutoring students throughout my high school and college careers in subjects ranging from English, History, Hebrew, college essay editing, and Standardized Test Preparation. Helping students is one of the most rewarding experiences I have partaken in, and I often find that I learn just as much, if not more, from my students than they learn from me.."

"I am motivated by the possibility of what I might learn or see or do on any given day. By immersing myself in knowledge I realize everyday can be different because I am able to change my perspective. My goal in becoming a tutor is that I might be able to inspire that same passion in children and young adults, a passion that might result in better grades of course, but more importantly a better understanding of our world, themselves and their potential. It is not always easy to be enthusiastic about grammatical errors, or who won a war 400 years ago, but by linking elements of a given curriculum with how and why we live as we do today, studying becomes ...

"I love tutoring one-on-one because I can get to know students and gear the lessons toward their interests, which helps them learn more quickly, retain new skills better, and enjoy the tutoring sessions more. I particularly enjoy teaching science, writing, and test prep. With test prep I've found that supplemental work on fundamental skills helps students improve their scores much more than working through a test prep book alone. Watching students develop confidence in their abilities and improve their performance makes my tutoring sessions some of the best hours of my week!." ...

"I was born in Bosnia and moved to the US when I was 6. My favorite hobby is fishing, primarily on the Sound but I also love fishing for trout in the Norwalk River. In academics my main interests are politics, history, and sociology. I also love science and learning about new discoveries but I'm more attracted to the fields that study people and societies rather than the "hard" sciences."

"My goal is to help students develop a passion, or at least an interest, in subject areas they may have learned to dislike or fear. I build students' confidence by helping them understand the connection between areas of study that challenge them, and other subjects they may already feel comfortable with. I believe that writing, reading and analysis are not innate abilities, but rather skills that each student must work to develop. I help students understand that they are not 'bad' at these subjects -- they simply have not had the right opportunity to develop their skills. The students I work with make significant progress in their studies, ...
