"I love all things economics, especially environmental and natural resource economics. I was a tutor at the Lawrence University Center for Teaching and Learning for four years, and have found my students are most successful when they have fun with their lessons. I am always exploring new ways to make tutoring sessions fun and easy to understand! I am known to bring rubberbands, corn kernels, and LOTS of scratch paper to my sessions. I am a Spanish speaker and spent six months studying in Argentina where I learned to dance tango and practiced daily yoga in Spanish and English. I recently traveled to China for a college course studying ...

I have found my different tutoring positions to be very rewarding for both the students and for me.

" I don't train my students to recite facts and figures. Rather, I encourage them to become self-motivated learners by creating a positive experience that is tailored to each individual. My lesson plans are thus very flexible, and designed with the likes and interests of the student in mind. My goal as a tutor is to prepare students for academic evaluations while also setting them up to enjoy a lifetime of learning."

"I'm drawn to that period because it was the start of English literature as we know it--the printing press was just beginning to take off, commercial theaters were opening for the first time, and suddenly there was a huge demand for fiction. Authors hadn't written on this scale before, and so they were incredibly inventive (and more than a little strange)--they could mix fantasy, romance, serious religious allegory, political satire, and crude humor, for example, into one very entertaining book. I've been tutoring high school students for the past three years. My goal in tutoring is for my students to learn what questions they need to ask ...

" Teaching is something I truly enjoy and a part of my life from which I derive a great deal of fulfillment and inspiration. My enthusiasm for teaching is definitely grounded in my passion for learning. Reading, writing, and language learning are three of my favorite pastimes. Through my own learning experience and my time as a teacher I have developed a great respect for the unique learning process of each individual. I've had the opportunity to explore this process through teaching reading classes (which covered everything from basic phonics to university-level study skills and speed reading) to ESL instruction (including ...

"Some of the best academic memories I have are of teachers who really took the time to break down a subject until I really felt confident about it. I would like my students to be able to walk away from tutoring with similar positive experiences. I am a college graduate with a degree in both French and Spanish literature and languages. I am currently serving as a private French and Spanish teacher for preschool children."

" My primary tutoring experience comes from my years working as a peer consultant at my school's Writing Center. I assisted other students in their own writing processes and helped them to discover ways to improve their thesis statements, organize their arguments, and convey their points in a formal, academic, but also unique way. Rather than just telling them the answers, I prefer to guide the student to come up with the best changes to improve their writing. No one can learn how to write when someone just tells you what to say."
