"Unashamed of my status as the least degree-holding member of my family (my two sisters are JD and MD respectively), I enjoyed a wide variety of activities throughout high school and college: volleyball, theatre, sculpture, and leadership. Threaded into my career in advertising and video production, I have worked as a high school para-educator (Instructional Assistant in the Seattle Public School vernacular) in the math department and volunteered as a tutor with a refugee youth non-profit. I love helping students learn to love learning, or at least to see the importance of learning and that they can do it. My style is convivial and ...

"I pride myself in relating complex historical subjects and political concepts to students by using contemporary examples, breaking down the material into easily understood “chunks” and giving lots of encouragement and enthusiasm! I particularly enjoy tutoring American government and getting students engaged in the fundamentals of American politics and government. I enjoy hiking, skiing and reading, especially biographies and British history. I look forward to becoming a lawyer and will be applying to law school while tutoring."

"I enjoy watching students overcome intimidating material once they learn the fundamentals. Having taken many tests myself, I appreciate the difficulty of preparing and managing time during a test. I show students how to proceed through test questions quickly and manage time during a test. Test prep is necessary in today's education system, and I believe it's important to help students cope and excel through these pressure situations. I always emphasize with students that their goal is not a perfect score, but rather the ability to proceed efficiently through questions without second guessing." ...

" Since undergrad I have tutored in many subjects: math, SAT prep, Spanish, and biology. Spanish is my love; I studied it as an undergraduate and believe that the key to learning anything is understanding how the subject matter fits into the larger picture of your life. If you understand WHY you need to learn something, you have an incentive to learn it. I've tutored middle school, high school, and college freshmen and sophomores and occasionally get a phone call from one of my younger sisters asking for help editing an essay or solving a math problem." ...

"I have been a volunteer tutor for college freshmen and sophomore level math classes as part of my membership in the Institute of Industrial Engineers during my years in college, and have worked in an elementary school environment where my duties as a technology coordinator occasionally required me to instruct students. For me, the biggest thrill in any job is visibly seeing that "light bulb moment" as someone crosses the boundary between confusion and understanding. Thank you for taking the time to consider me for your tutor, and I'm hoping to hear from you soon!." ...

" As the lead teacher for an after-school program serving Somali refugees and as a monitor at a French bilingual school, I have immersed myself in the region’s splendid diversity. This work as an educator has given me experience developing age-appropriate lessons in a variety of areas, including reading, writing, science, and math. My cultural agility is the result of interactions with students of various nationalities and socioeconomic backgrounds. Although I would be delighted to tutor many subjects, my passion is English. From an early age, I have been fascinated with words and the way we use them." ...

"My mother is a high school science teacher and ever since 9th grade I have been tutoring, although me interests shifted quite frequently. In college I was able to both study and tutor politics and history in probably the best city for those subjects, our nation's capital. While I have also tutored subjects such as math, science, economics, and ESL, I have found that politics and history provide a unique possibility for students to go beyond simply absorbing knowledge and gives them a chance to express and integrate their own opinions and world views into their learning. In my free time I enjoy basketball, hiking, biking, hanging with ...

" As a student at Washington State University I tutored undergraduates in a variety of subjects, ranging from English composition for non-English speakers to advanced History and Political Science. Further, while at the University of Washington School of Law I served as a member of the Admissions Committee and taught a course in the law to students at a Seattle area high school. Although I am comfortable tutoring in a variety of subjects, I most enjoy English Composition, Essay Writing, Government and History. Also, despite my legal background, I remain dedicated to teaching and education and find there is no greater joy than helping ...
