Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Math tutors
"I am a Northern Arizona University graduate with a dual Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and Biomedical Sciences. During my college tenure and in high school I tutored fellow classmates in material we were studying in class; helping them to achieve high B's and A's in chemistry, microbiology, biochemistry, and physical chemistry. More recently I have been asked to tutor individuals for the ASVAB(Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery). I'm very flexible regarding both hours and locations and I am able to schedule sessions both late in the evening and early in the morning.." ...

"I've also worked for laboratories at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and California Institute of Technology. My tutoring methods cater to every student's needs individually. I feel as though there is no cookie cutter method for tutoring students, rather each student's needs and abilities be assessed before developing a tutoring system that ensures he or she will make steps to a greater understanding of the material. When these steps are connected and the student can demonstrate the skill is when I know he or she fully grasps the material and can move on." ...

" Now that I have that established, I have the time and the energy to assist others in developing the skills to master mathematics. This is the first building block in a career in the sciences or technology. At the age of 14, I was introduced to Algebra in middle school. This was not an introduction that gave me "warm fuzzies"."

" I have tutored informally in high school (mostly in math and English), and I even worked at an after school tutoring center. I also assisted and tutored my fellow peers during my undergraduate years. Some of my more unique experiences include tutoring and teaching internationally. When I was in high school, I implemented and directed a phonics and geography workshop in a rural village in southern India for students between the ages of 4 and 18."

"Though it may be intimidating trying to memorize every bone and tissue in the body, I have learned how to master memorization and hope to share my methods and my passion for science with others who just need a little extra help. I also believe that having a passion unrelated to science helps to balance out the rigorous studying, which is why I support the arts, sports, and other extracurriculars. I have tutored various ages from middle school students to undergraduates my age. My strengths are in the sciences and in mathematics, as my foundation is in pre-med courses. I am able teach from the college level and below in any of those subjects ...

" That was not without it's challenges initially, however. Due to my weak academic background from high school, I spent my first year and summer at school catching up to the typical physics program, and had to spend extra time learning the advanced mathematical techniques needed to succeed in the program. Towards the end of my four years, I had a chance to explore other areas I was interested in, such as theater design, music theory, and fencing. When I finished my BA program, I tried my hand at research. I spent a year working on a project with Fermilab working on locating the Higgs boson." ...

" My plans are to continue in the field of education one day as a professor of either history or education. With my vast classroom experience I am very good at assessing student needs and responding accordingly. I believe each person learns in a unique style, and it is the responsibility of the teacher/tutor to identify that style and make accommodations in his/her instructional approach. It is this individualized approach that makes tutoring so fun and exciting.."

"During my Masters, I worked as a research assistant and trained two interns in data analysis, statistics and worked with them in completing research projects. In the GRE (Graduate Record Exam) I scored 800/800 in math which helped me secure admission to University of Texas at Austin with a tuition waiver. Prior to that, I graduated with a Bachelors in Technology from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras in Civil Engineering with a 3.6 GPA. During summer vacation in my junior and senior years I trained high school students in Mathematics for the IIT JEE (Joint Entrance Examination), one of the most competitive exams with about 5% ...

"I look to show them the parallels between things they are familiar with and the problem in question. Seeing a student's realization that they can solve a problem brings me satisfaction. In my free time, I enjoy computer programming, plane spotting, reading, 3d modeling, Aviation, playing basketball and soccer, and DJ'ing. I am a member of the ORD Airport Watch and the Loyola Physics Club."

" A tutor not only can be a great help when faced with a difficult problem or concept, but a tutor is there to encourage and motivate students to overcome obstacles and to help students stay on track. When teaching students, I always try to teach not the answer, but the method to get the answer. I believe that the method of obtaining the answer is more important than the answer itself because by simply giving the answer to the students it only limits them to that particular problem; however, by teaching and equipping students with the ability to solve for the answer allows them to solve any problems on their own. Growing up, I was tutored all the way ...
