"I have been a volunteer tutor for college freshmen and sophomore level math classes as part of my membership in the Institute of Industrial Engineers during my years in college, and have worked in an elementary school environment where my duties as a technology coordinator occasionally required me to instruct students. For me, the biggest thrill in any job is visibly seeing that "light bulb moment" as someone crosses the boundary between confusion and understanding. Thank you for taking the time to consider me for your tutor, and I'm hoping to hear from you soon!." ...

"Education to me is something that should be enjoyed. If one is not enjoying what they are doing, what’s the point?! I love science particularly because it allows a hands on experience, where involvement and stimulation creates motivation and questions. I like to have fun with what I learn and pass on the experience to those I teach/tutor. In addition to my experience in a college classroom, I do in-home therapy work with children with disabilities."

" During my graduate program I worked part-time for UCLA Bruincorps, where I tutored middle school students in math and mentored a team of undergraduate tutors. For the past year I worked in an affordable housing community where I ran an after school program for students of all ages. This often included helping students with their homework and tutoring them when they did not understand the concepts they were learning. These unique experiences have molded me into a flexible, compassionate, and relatable yet focused tutor who can work with any age and any culture." ...

" When tutoring I do like to work along with the students curriculum to enhance their understand of the subjects currently being taught. I believe both the student and I can prepare for the study sessions each week to help get through as much information as possible in each session. I have adapted to teach students to their strengths to have a great grasp on the material.."

" As a result of such diverse opportunities, I’ve gained the patience, creativity, and experience needed to be a successful tutor in almost any subject. In addition, my college courses have provided me a breadth of knowledge applicable across all academic areas, as well as an understanding of how different individuals learn. I can relate to the challenges students face when approaching standardized tests, given that I’ve taken both the ACT and GRE within the last four years, and took 11 AP courses throughout high school. I chose to work with Varsity Tutors in particular because I believe that their unique focus on individualized, one on ...

"Of course, the more I learned the more I realized how little I know about the universe that we live in, and that was quite a humbling experience. As I got older, I started to think about ways to improve learning itself: how can a human being absorb and understand information in the most efficient way possible? What can I do in order to teach a person a certain concept in the most effective way? My life has centered (and still is centered) around this theme. Though I had the wonderful opportunity of being a teaching-assistant while I was an undergraduate in college, the vast majority of my teaching experiences have been the informal setting of ...

" I am a very logical and rational person, and I believe that is reflected in how I teach my students. I do my best to have students understand concepts rather than just memorizing them. Although learning process may be more difficult, problems will become much easier in the long run. I try not to force students into doing something but rather, encourage them."

" I find that each student learns at a different capacity, so my teaching style is to first be aware of the material trying to be better understood. Then finding the correlation of the students interests and strengths in order to best relate the material we would be working with. I will then find the best way possible to make learning interesting and each experience and session new. My interests consist of sports (mostly football), traveling and working on my motorcycle."
