"When I ran the test-prep program in Missouri, numerous students experienced high levels of success in improving not only their test scores, but also the skills these tests measure. I taught students who started at 25 on the ACT and ended up at 34, but at least as satisfying were those students who started at 14 and eventually achieved 19. More important than such external measurements, however, is the individual student's knowledge that he or she has come into possession of, and internalized, a set of tools useful for further learning. I've edited five books for Duke University Press, and I have also taught college. My students find me ...

"I recently finished an MA in philosophy at the University of Colorado in Boulder. What I loved most about being in graduate school in Boulder was being a Teaching Assistant for introductory philosophy courses. I enjoyed communicating the importance of critical thinking and clear argumentative writing.

I am taking classes full-time towards a teaching credential in secondary (7-12) education at Pima Community College."

"I am currently taking a year off in-between my undergraduate coursework and medical school in order to conduct neuroscience research at the University of Arizona's Tucson campus. My diverse background in both the sciences and humanities means that I can tutor a variety of topics ranging from literature to organic chemistry, including the SAT and ACT. I believe I have a talent for communicating ideas and information in various ways to help others learn.

"Being able to see a students face when they figure out the subject that they are being taught is one of the greatest experiences available to a teacher. I have always believed that students learn better when being taught by someone who truly loves the subject that they are being taught which is why I believe that, especially in History, I would help a student learn. I dont see history as a dull subject, in fact I have always seen it as alive and well. No matter what anyone studies, to know where to go next one must know what came before them. I have studied abroad in Italy, loving every minute of it, and believe that it made me not only a better student ...
