Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Middle School Math tutors in Scottsdale, AZ
"When material is described in a manner a student can relate to, it’s more understood and that familiar example is better remembered in a testing situation. I have experience teaching a Biology Lab for non-science major college students from freshman to seniors. It was the experience that ultimately showed me what I was capable of sharing information and how much fun it was. 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 am currently also doing another passion of mine—coaching soccer—while I tutor and look for a good doctoral program to attend. 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.." ...

" Before getting the master’s degree in education I worked for NASA as an entry-level scientist/analyst, which essentially means I did A LOT of computer programming. I worked on the following projects: Galileo, Cassini, IRAF, UBV White-Dwarf Sky Survey, and NICMOS on the HST. However, while working on those projects I quickly discovered that my lifelong dream of being an astronaut was not really what I wanted to do. I had always had a passion for music, and was a good trumpet player, and with a little nudging from my College Band Director, well, the road definitely took a right turn." ...

"Hello! I recently joined the working world after many years as a student, and I know the frustrations that can occur while striving toward a good education. The good news is that there is always someone to help!

Now that I am a doctor, and have reached my educational goals, I would like to give back.."
