"I received my credential and Master's Degree in an intensive program at the University of California at Santa Cruz; an institution well known for its excellent education department and strong emphasis on student-directed, project-based learning. I was a multiple-subject educator at a small, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded, non-traditional charter school at the forefront of the project-based, standards-based, early-college movement. I have taught students of all ages in traditional and non-traditional settings. Everything I do with my students is designed to build confidence, develop critical thinking skills and ...

"I began to tutor my peers (one-on-one) in algebra and chemistry while I was in high school. I found out that I understood the subjects better by tutoring to my peers, thus, tutoring gave me a greater appreciation for what I was learning. This early tutoring experience definitely had a significant impact on my own pursuit of chemistry. During the course of my undergraduate and graduate studies, I also worked as a tutor and teaching assistant on a part-time basis. I got great satisfaction out of my students' "light bulb" moments."

"As a result I have had the pleasure of teaching students of all ages and educational backgrounds, from adult African tour guides learning English, to Asian refugee children being introduced to the American school system. Although I have a strong biology background, I am very familiar with most sciences and math levels and can confidently teach any student in these areas. I feel that everyone has their own pace at which they learn and as a tutor it's my responsibility to tailor the subject to each individual student. In my experience, the worst attitude a student can have is to be negative about their abilities, one should never ...

" My lifelong interest in foreign cultures and languages led me to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Comparative Politics and certificates in Near Eastern Studies & Arabic Language/Culture, as well as multiple trips abroad for language immersion and research. I am passionate about education and believe strongly in academic success as a platform for personal growth and self-esteem. My tutoring experience began in middle school as a reading helper to children for whom English was a second language (ages 5-10). I continued to tutor throughout middle and high school as a ‘homework helper’ for kids with behavioral and developmental ...

"Tutoring students can be very simple and sometimes very complicated, but I always look for ways to make analogies to things students feel more comfortable with, so it doesn't seem like I'm speaking a foreign language to them. I get a personal sense of satisfaction when someone stops and goes, "oh, I've never thought of it that way before - now it all makes sense." In addition, often times I feel the education system here is misunderstood and students spend too much time memorizing "steps" to a subject rather than learning it, and inevitably end up failing when they are required to utilize the knowledge in future more advanced work. In my ...

"I have approximately four years of experience working as a private tutor in the fields of Calculus and Regents level Chemistry. My approach has always been to first give a detailed and coherent qualitative explanation of whatever the subject at hand was, for example explaining the motivation behind carrying out definite integrals, and then give a step by step, thorough, quantitative explanation of the subject. All my students saw improvements in their academic performances and they are listed as references in my curriculum vitae. Dr. Thomas A." ...

"I have tutored students in English Literature, Writing, Reading Comprehension, Economics, and math through Pre-Calculus ever since I was in high school, and also provide tutoring for college entrance exams (SAT, ACT). I work hard with my students to instill the confidence needed to succeed while building deep, intuitive understandings of key concepts that are critical for success. During my teaching sessions I try to use engaging and amusing examples to illustrate the subject, with a keen understanding that learning is most fruitful when student and teacher are enjoying themselves. I also try to provide students with effective ...

"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, ...
