Denzell ...attended Howard for my undergraduate engineering degree. I've really come to enjoy the DC area. What I've noticed from my experience interacting with younger students in the past is that many of them don't feel as though they are getting the attention they need to succeed in their more challenging math courses. My ability to fill that additional need for academic support is why I enjoy tutoring! Outside of that I also enjoy watching classic...

Ash ...fondness for helping others succeed in biology, particularly subjects like genetics and physiology. My tutoring style is to work through problems or subjects with my student and have him or her explain how they arrived at the answer or point out what they think are important concepts. I do not like to provide the answers to my students without them trying the problem first, because this does not help them grow more confident in the...

Linus I do not fit in stereotypical academic categories. I was a humanities focused liberal arts major, a graduate of the Great Books program at St. John's College. But there I rediscovered a love of math and science which has led me to pursue Physics. I am a hard science geek who loves to read, and I want to help students learn to love all subjects and succeed at them too.
