Eva "...I like to inject fun and humor into learning and am the product of some really excellent educators who I like to think inform my teaching style. My tutoring experience began nearly four years ago when I began working with an organization that helps prepare under-served students for the SAT and the college admissions process. I enjoyed breaking students' preconceived notions about what they could and could not do, and I value the interpersonal relationships with my students that I was able to create and maintain to this day. I graduated with my undergrad in 2012 with degrees in International Relations and Spanish, and I was awarded Distinguished Honors in International Relations..."

Jeana "...When I left Germany and came to the United States for college, I became certified to tutor Calculus I and the German language at Johns Hopkins University through their student-to-student tutoring service, "The Learning Den." Tutoring has been such a joy of mine because of the students I've been able to work with. Working together to get through a tough concept or problem is made totally worthwhile when the student then says, "Ok, let me do this next one on my own. I've got this." That's when I know knowledge has truly been shared, and that both the student and I have done our jobs. When I'm not tutoring, I love to be outside! You can find me either running on the beach in the summer or snowboarding on the slopes in the winter..."
Karenja "I'm a great tutor because I'm a cool nerd who makes learning super fun and simple! Plus, I love seeing students "get 'it'" after they've struggled to grasp a concept for so long. I come from a family of educators, but I decided to pursue Accounting instead. I enjoy the chance to interact with students and make a direct, positive contribution to their lives..."
Jessica "My decision to become a teacher came easy to me. My mother was a teacher and I always enjoyed helping others. I find it beautiful when students have that lightbulb moment when everything makes sense or a connection is made between what they are learning and their background knowledge..."
