"I am a recent graduate in Chemistry and Secondary education, and a certified Chemistry teacher. I specialize in tutoring High School and Organic Chemistry, though I also tutor in math up to geometry. When I teach and tutor, I try to get my students to go beyond the "plug and chug", memorize-how-to-get-the-answer mode and help them gain a deeper understanding of the systems they are using. When they learn the basic framework of something, be it atomic structure or algebra, and then learn how everything else flows logically from it, students retain information better and can make use of it in new situations. In the classroom and one-on-one, ...

"Hello! My name is Anne, and I'm a super tutor! Why? Well, there's a couple of reasons: First, I really care. I want you (or your child) to learn! I'm not happy until you leave a tutoring session with me feeling confident in your knowledge of a subject. Second, I don't give up easily. If one way of explaining something doesn't work, I'll try a second."

"I believe that every student is different. A good tutor realizes this and should be able to adapt to the persona and learning style of each of his/her pupils. I am confident I can do this. With a patient, yet persistent style, I am certain I can be of assistance to you. I have been practicing law since I passed the bar in 2006, but am back in school to finish up my biology degree so that I can become a Patent Attorney."

"I have tutored a broad range of academic levels from basic arithmetic to Algebra II and Calculus to even Statistics. I have always wanted to be a math teacher and enjoyed tutoring on the side, as well as helping some of my peers who have returned to college with their math courses. I have always felt that my credibility as a teacher would increase should I have other career experience under my belt. Hence, my insurance job! However, I absolutely love math and cannot wait to have my job where I get to teach it every day. I feel that the best way to help someone learn is to make sure that they actually understand how to do something and why they are doing ...

"Hi there! My name is Michael and I am extremely passionate about education.

"Even though my professional career is as a criminal defense attorney, I am still a scientist at heart. I've found that the ability to "think like a scientist" - methodically, logically, empirically - serves as an invaluable asset for case analysis, evidence evaluation, and legal reasoning. That's one of the things I love the most about science and mathematics - it informs your whole outlook on the world and the way you think. And that's why I enjoy helping others to develop their scientific abilities as well."

"I design study plans aimed at addressing problem areas. When I was a student in middle school and high school, study strategies that teachers recommended to the class rarely worked for me. After having little success with their methods, I eventually found one that worked for me and in a short time, the results were showing in my grades. I feel that each student must approach academics in a unique way that caters to his or her learning style as well as one that is appropriate for the subject."
