"I am currently working as a research assistant in a movement disorders clinic and plan to apply to medical school. I have training as an attention deficit disorder coach through ADD in the Spirit training and have had experience coaching two students with attention deficit disorder. One student successfully completed his Masters thesis over the summer and the other successfully obtained an athletic scholarship. I have developed my ability to communicate complex ideas by giving over thirty speeches through Toastmasters and Dale Carnegie Training and presenting at a regional conference and two international conferences.

"I strive to explain as well as I can so the student understands. My interests include playing the piano, studying astronomy outside of school, reading a good book, watching sci-fi movies and TV shows, and playing video games here and there. Tutoring is something I enjoy doing, and I hope I can help you!."

"I enjoy tutoring and seeing "the light come on" for the students. Over the years I have tutored many high school and college students in math and physics. I try to get the student to think through the problem, giving hints when needed, and come up with the answer. I am interested in the new findings in science, in reading most anything, and in football (Steelers and Georgia Tech).."

" I have been doing freelance tutoring since December 2011 before working for Varsity Tutors. Learning math is different than any other subject. It is more about understanding the process and asking "why" rather than memorization. I am not far removed from studying math in school myself and I know what it's like to struggle, to feel lost in class, or to be stuck on a problem. I find the most effective method is having the student attempt the math problems on their own rather then just watch the problems being solved as they might in a classroom." ...

" I love to experience foreign countries, and so I went abroad during my summers in college. One summer I lived in La Paz, Bolivia where I had a summer internship in a pediatric hospital. Another summer I participated in the program Princeton in Beijing which was an intense immersion program that, despite its rigor, ended up being one of my favorite experiences of my life. I graduated Princeton University in 2011 and 6 weeks later began medical school at the University of Arizona College of Medicine (Phoenix campus)where I continue to study currently, until I obtain my MD degree in 2015." ...

" In part because of my set of eclectic interests, I find all interests to be equally valuable and play some role in society, small however it may be. (There is some intrigue in just about everything!) For standardized tests like the SAT and ACT, knowing the strategies for the test is often as important as being able to determine the answer. The structure of the test and the questions influences the test-taking strategy, and so I focus on that as well as the material itself.."

"I have tutored students in high school and college each having their own special background and personality. After spending a little time with a student, I have had great success in identifying the particular type of help that he/she needs and have historically tailored my sessions to provide the most benefit in the time we spend together. I can also provide insight from the point of view of the student’s teacher, with input from my father who is a high school math teacher locally. I can often help the student to do well in the classroom in addition to understanding the course material.." ...
