" During my training I taught biology and chemistry in middle schools and high schools, and after earning my Ph.D. degree I gave lectures at undergraduate and graduate level courses. Having been trained as a teacher I have a passion for sharing my knowledge with students. Some may find the complexity of biology and chemistry intimidating, but I think everyone has an innate curiosity and drive for understanding our natural world."

" I have found that I am quite passionate about teaching and helping others succeed. Much of my strength as a tutor comes from patience and allowing the student to find the answer on his own and not just handing it to him/her. I am able to relate well to students and am especially good at making the subject matter interesting and showing the student how it is in fact useful for real life. In my free time, I love playing sports and spending time with friends and family."

" Many people tend to react to this with a face of "ewww," but I love figuring out the patterns and results that tell the story from the numbers. I have taught a variety of subjects and grades, including 7th-grade Math, which I consider to be my hardest gig yet. Like most people who teach and/or tutor, I enjoy the moment when the struggling student 'gets it.' I especially like showing students that most Math problems are a series of simpler problems which they most likely already know how to do. Since I am a full-time graduate student, I don't have much free time, but when I do, I enjoy rollerblading, cooking and watching a good movie with friends." ...

"From tutoring my fellow classmates in AP Calculus 1 and 2 and intermediate Spanish, I was able to engage in a higher level of academic tutoring and develop more direct methods to explain concepts. I feel that the knowledge, encouragement and patience that I enjoy offering to the most frustrated student really makes the difference. It is my optimistic attitude and driven spirit, combined with my strong knowledge and familiarity with core subjects, that makes me an effective tutor. Aside from my subject experience, I have a strong passion for helping others." ...

" As a graduate student teaching assistant, I have worked extensively in the classroom. My experience ranges from delivering lectures and helping students understand important scientific concepts to working with students on a one-on-one basis. Many of the students I have worked with are non-science majors and finding a way to explain difficult scientific concepts to individual students is something I find rewarding. I have helped students who were anxious about scientific concepts and mathematics become comfortable with these concepts and I have helped outstanding students to achieve their goals in the classroom." ...

"I solve complex problems by breaking them down into small steps which is how I teach my students to solve problems. If I can help a student get a few steps into the problem, they usually began to see the correct direction and are able to find the path to the answer. Challenging my students to think for themselves, asking intentional questions and offering helpful advice and encouragement are what make me a great tutor.-."
