" I am dynamic, interactive and approachable when I teach. I can switch gears or adjust my style to fit my student and what they need. I do believe everyone can improve their verbal skills and the life sciences are not pure memorization, so there is a chance for anyone to succeed given the right guidance. In my free time, I love pursuing outdoor sports such as rock climbing and snowboarding. I am also very into traveling, cooking, and dancing.."

"I do my best to keep lessons fun and interesting by connecting them to a student's interests whenever possible. I believe that one-on-one help is often the best pathway to success, and I enjoy individualizing my lessons to a student's interests and needs. My background is in Linguistics and Communication Disorders, but I have always loved math and science as well. When I'm not tutoring or studying for my own classes, you'll often see me reading, baking, or going for a walk.."

"I have developed a genuine love of learning and wish to ignite that same fire in other students through tutoring. Two of my favorite subjects are biology and French. Biology is the science of life from the tiny molecular interactions occurring in the body and atmosphere to the history of life on Earth, it fascinates me to no end. The French have such an established culture, so refined and known for authors, poets, chefs, fashion designers and so much more."

"I then spent two years in Ecuador working on a community development project focused on education. While living there, I started working as a private tutor for English and Biology. I am interested in using education as a tool to empower whole populations, and I have spent many months abroad working and volunteering for educational programs that strive to better the current state of their communities. What I enjoy most about teaching is watching your students grow and develop their capacity for understanding. The "AHA!" moment, when all the pieces of the puzzle finally come together, is priceless.." ...

"I can also help with French at a low to intermediate level, particularly conversation and pronunciation practice, and with Spanish at a low level. Language is a tool, and a very effective one! I believe that honing their skills in language can put students on the right track to great jobs and careers and great schools, and I make sure to keep lessons fun, engaging, and relevant. I like to get to know my students well and personalize my approach for them. I specialize in students that speak English as a second language, but I can help native speakers out as well." ...

"Although I will not provide answers or a quick and simple fix, I will provide students with guidance and encouragement as they work through problems and learn to apply familiar concepts to unfamiliar situations. I also believe strongly in teaching “to the student,” and therefore adapt my teaching to fit each individual’s needs and learning styles. By pinpointing and addressing students’ weaknesses and creating a comfortable, nurturing environment in which they can learn, I work to help students solidify their knowledge base and learn how to learn. In my free time, I enjoy running, playing piano, baking, and learning about ...

"I’ve helped students ages 9 to 19 with various subjects and standardized tests; and seeing their progress never gets old! I do my best to relate to/understand each student, because adaptation to the student’s abilities, learning style, etc. is instrumental to his or her success. I'm a firm believer that experience dictates attitude dictates performance, so I aim to make the learning experience productive and positive, allowing the rest to follow accordingly. ."

"I have since left the profession to pursue medicine, but my love of teaching has brought me back to tutoring. As far as my teaching style goes, I am a personable and resourceful teacher. I believe people learn best by being taught concepts in a simple manner before adding more complex detail. In this spirit, I often search for analogies when explaining an idea. Furthermore, as a visual learner myself, I habitually use drawings to illustrate my points."

"I have even tutored calculus in French! I think my wide range of abilities and interests make me unique as a tutor because I understand many different learning styles, not just left-brained or right-brained thinkers. In math, I was taking graduate-level math classes when I was in high school, while in French, I became completely fluent after starting at the late age of 19. I love learning and for this reason it is a great joy for me to take others through the same processes I went through myself, especially in subjects like math and foreign language where many people feel like they will never "get it." Often it is just a question of not being ...

" I know that sometimes grammar or pronunciation can be difficult for students, but having worked with many different students of different levels over the years, I know how to explain language concepts and help students improve both their language level and study skills. I have also corrected hundreds of papers over the years. This has given me a knack for helping students improve their writing, whether they are a non-native speaker whose English is not so good or a graduate student who wants to clarify a concept in a paper. It is a good feeling when I see a student find their own voice and acquire confidence in their own writing. Although I ...
