" I have been with Varsity Tutors for over a year, and have helped students in a wide variety of subjects including literature, history, mathematics (on a range of levels), physics, and the SAT. My clients have been mainly high school and college students. Besides Varsity Tutors, I have had teaching experience in summer programs for gifted students and after-school tutoring programs at the middle school level. I have enjoyed my experience across a wide range of subjects and age levels.."

" Most student can grasp even advanced concepts when explained in a reasonable way (this often does not happen in the classroom), but I also give them the little tips that save time, and teach them exactly what to look for to pinpoint the concept in any problem. I help them get in the instructor mentality, so they understand why problems are worded in a certain way and what the teacher is looking for. I like to share my experience so clients are better test takers, and improve their time management skills, lessons that I hope will help them far beyond any class.." ...

"I like to develop study guides with the student to help them pinpoint key topics and through the process engage in comprehensive review of the material. I let the students lead the direction of the sessions through their questions rather than lecturing. I am accessible and flexible with scheduling. I aim to relate the concepts to the student by explaining the information in everyday contexts and develop tricks and mnemonics to best grasp the material."

"My clients have ranged from middle school students learning basic math skills to college students taking calculus. What makes me a great tutor is my ability to connect with my clients on a personal level and help them figure out how they best learn the material. Every student is different, and my ability to adapt my tutoring methods for someone's individual needs make me a fun and understanding tutor. In my free time, I love spending time with friends, dancing, traveling, and taking pictures."

" I have tutored students ranging from middle school to college. Most of my students show dramatic improvements in their grades and test scores after receiving my help. I like to tailor my teaching style to the individual student because I know that everyone has a different learning personality. I get to know my students, discover the reasons they struggle."

" I have experience in tutoring all ages and backgrounds, so I’m not afraid to try new ways of explaining things. Pulling together things from different subjects to illustrate a topic is only half the fun. What I hear most often from my students is “I didn’t know that had anything to do with this subject!” That being said, my background in both liberal arts and sciences have allowed me to tutor from 6th grade math up to university calculus, physics and chemistry, as well as Spanish, writing, test prep, and my personal favorite - algebra entirely taught in Spanish. When I’m away from the books, I am taking dance classes, baking, trying to take ...

"I very much enjoy my tutoring positions and have found them to be rewarding, both for me and for my students. The majority of my clients come to me for ACT test prep, but I have tutored many other subjects, ranging from elementary language arts and SSAT/ISEE prep to Algebra II/Trigonometry and college writing. My goal is to teach my students the strategies, skills, and information necessary to succeed in their classes or on standardized tests. In addition, I strive to foster their independence and increase their self-confidence. I have a love of learning, and I hope to instill that in my students. In my free time, I enjoy going to live ...

"It is because of a few good teachers that I am where I am today. As a graduate student at the U of A, I have taught a number of different chemistry labs ranging from general chemistry to senior level physical chemistry. I put a lot of work into my teaching because I believe that a good teacher makes a huge difference in how people learn. I try to approach problems from many different angles because everyone learns and retains information a little differently."
