" Currently I am working for the New York City Department of Health & Mental Hygiene in the HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control Unit. Over the past academic year I was a Teaching Assistant for the Introductory and Advanced HIV/AIDS Epidemiology courses. I had the pleasure of introducing many non-science majors to the interesting and complicated world of HIV. I found that my passion for the science and the material helped me get the difficult concepts across to my students."

" I enjoy using Mathematics in my daily life and I believe that a true mark of understanding a material is being able to apply it to your reality. One of the things that I enjoy about tutoring is seeing a smile on a client’s face once he or she has understood the material that was presented. I believe that this is one of the true joys of teaching. I have had several other experiences in being a tutor where I tutored lower school students while I was in High School and during my first undergraduate degree I tutored visually challenged classmates. Following the completion of my B.Sc in Economics I moved to Colombia where I became a Teaching Assistant in ...

"My students have ranged from first graders up to adults going back to college. I get real fulfillment from working with students one-on-one. Over the course of the year, to see the transformation a student undergoes as he/she gains the confidence to take up the challenge of the subject matter is very inspiring. I enjoy being part of this process, and watching how the empowerment the student develops translates into empowerment in other facets of his/her studies and life. I place high value on addressing each student's individual learning style and personality. With all my students I "Meet Them Where They Are," and together we ...

"As a freshman, I began workshop leading in Introductory Chemistry courses and, soon thereafter, progressed to Organic, Quantitative and Thermodynamic Chemistry. I enjoyed my interaction with the students so much that, after graduating, I decided to adjunct lecture at a community college. There, I welcomed the exciting challenge of engaging adult learners in an introductory biology course with labs. Recently, I have garnered some extensive private experience tutoring middle to high-school age students in Algebra, Geometry, ELA, Chemistry and Biology, as an independent contractor for a couple of companies. I look forward to ...

"I was born in eastern Pennsylvania, grew up near Columbus, Ohio, and lived in Albania for four years during high school. I visited Kenya and Bulgaria this past winter -- my 26th and 27th countries! I joined Varsity Tutors mainly to help students with entrance exams (SAT, SSAT, ISEE, PSAT). I personally improved my score by 250 points in just two sections with a little personal study. I believe strongly that anyone who learns the structure, nuances, focuses, and limits of the SAT can not only improve their score but earn perfect scores like I did on the creative reading and writing multiple-choice sections." ...

"Having founded a youth program and partnership in my hometown, youth education, advocacy and empowerment comprise one of my greater passions.

"I have also edited academic and personal writing, and I have significant experience assisting with college essays. I am all about making learning exciting and intuitive! During Stanford, I served as a mentor and tutor two times a week at the East Palo Alto Boys and Girls Club, and spent many Saturday mornings at a local high school co-coaching the tri-math-a-lon team to two-time national victory. In high school, I worked with my principal to launch MenTu, a mentoring and tutoring program for local elementary school students. Through one on one attention we were able to strengthen the students' math and English homework scores, ...

" I BELIEVE THAT ANY STUDENT CAN MASTER THESE CONCEPTS, REGARDLESS OF HOW THEY CURRENTLY FEEL ABOUT THEIR MATHEMATICAL ABILITIES OR INTEREST LEVEL, SO LONG AS THEY HAVE TWO THINGS: 1. A desire to learn the material (a desire to survive the course or test will do) 2. A teacher who is creative enough to understand how the student thinks, and can adapt lessons into the student's "own language" accordingly IF YOU BRING THE FORMER, I’LL BRING THE LATTER. My previous tutoring experience has taught me one thing above all else: everybody learns differently, and effective teachers are the ones who can adapt." ...
