Ann "... While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about Mathematics (Statistics and Algebra) and Chinese. In my experience, I have found that the best way to help a student learn is to find what works best for them. I firmly believe there is not just one method of learning and that by adjusting my teaching methods to cater to my students, it will allow them to best learn and understand their subject matter..."

Ariel "...I taught them in such a way that by the end of the summer, they were able to not only explain and execute experiments, but also articulate the scientific background and significance to other researchers. During my time at Georgetown University School of Medicine, I also worked as a lecture note taker for ten months, where I reorganized, reworded, and supplemented lecture notes for fellow graduate students. I answered classmates' questions on the topics, compiled study guides, and was commended for my ability to make otherwise difficult concepts easy to understand..."

Lyndia "I am a graduate student of International Affairs, who loves Math and French and helping students understand their coursework. I am a great tutor because if a student does not understand something, I take the time and go over the subject again and try to explain it in a way that he/she will understand. I do not try to rush through the subject..."

Jinlin "...When the teacher decided we all drop the textbooks and went to the playground, students were cheering, we talked and laughed. I realized the words we taught them in the hour we spent on the playground were way more than we taught them in the classroom. The other thing I learn through teaching students was the connection between the student and me was so important that it could change both of us..."

Rui "...My best professors and teachers have emphasized that it takes more than memorization to be a good learner. Likewise, I try to make students comfortable with the subjects that they learn and help them feel like they're capable of navigating subjects on their own when studying, practicing, or doing homework. Some of my subjects include Economics, English, World History, and Chinese. Because my professional field emphasizes an interdisciplinary approach, I like to stay curious about these subjects and consider myself a lifelong learner of just about any subject, both quantitative and qualitative..."

Sarah "...Teachers need to be calm, patient, creative, adaptable to various learning styles, and also passionate about the subjects they teach. I strive to be all of those. I enjoy tutoring because it allows the student to create personal goals (as opposed to a mandatory curriculum) and can often result in a more rewarding experience. Upon returning to the United States, I began applying to the Peace Corps..."
