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.

Anysia "...My previous experiences in tutoring include teaching peers in math, science, and German as a part of the National Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta, and Delta Epsilon Phi. I have also thoroughly enjoyed giving private violin lessons to beginner and intermediate players and mentoring robotics teams at a local middle school, where I had a chance to get to know my students well.

Lyndia "I am a graduate student of International Affairs, who loves Math and French and helping students understand their coursework.

I do not try to rush through the subject..."
