Kristen ...6 years of teaching high school math, I have learned many ways to present a variety of information. I have tutored one-on-one for 3 of those 6 years, and enjoy the experience of working individually with students and seeing their progress in the classroom. Making math enjoyable by relating the subject to students' everyday lives is something that I strive to do with both the students I teach and those that I tutor.

In college, I began to tutor my classmates in Calculus I and II along with many science courses such as Biology, Organic Chemistry, and Genetics. When I teach my classmates about any topic, I will always initiate by asking them questions regarding the topic they are struggling with. This will allow me to know specifically where and what they are struggling with and need help in. Afterward, I will...

Yaroslav ...the culmination of hours upon hours of training how to simply think and learn. My strength in tutoring is breaking a problem down piece by piece to the core fundamental concepts and later reassembling the chain of ideas to the student making sure he or she understands every link along the way and exactly what role it plays in the bigger picture. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, learning new...

Daniel ...II tutor. Besides having a genuine enthusiasm for math, I enjoy helping others share that enthusiasm and understand its concepts. I also understand the importance of mastering the basics and can empathize with those who don't *get* math as that once was me. Rather than simply letting students watch me do their homework, I make each problem a cooperative effort and gradually help each student become less and less dependent on outside help.

Travonnie ...my teachers strategies to help students feel smart. While coaching teachers is my role, I never stopped tutoring because there's nothing like hearing my kids shout "Ohhhhh!" after doing math they never thought they could handle. I think most kids struggle in math because they think they can't memorize all the steps. I work hard to help students find strategies that make sense to them. When my students see that there are so many ways...
