Giselle "...Also, during my experience as a Psychology graduate student, I have worked with many children, adolescents, and adults with carrying degrees of learning styles and learning abilities. Over time I have learned multiple skills, tips, and techniques to help students who may have trouble remembering things, organizing, and paying attention. My passion is to meet each student where they are at and try to mold my tutoring style to what they need..."

Dilbagh "...Throughout high school and college, Math, Chemistry, and Physics were always my favorite subjects. In high school, I would help tutor Chemistry and Physics for my teachers, and I continued to be involved in tutoring my peers throughout my undergraduate education. In my experience, I have found that the most effective tutoring involves a great deal of practice work, but also a comprehensive review of the rudimentary concepts that are involved in a given subject, particularly with higher level sciences which integrate many different topics..."

Paul "I have over ten years' experience teaching in the classroom and tutoring privately. I especially love math; even though I know a lot of students find it difficult, I like showing them ways it can be enjoyable if not fun! I know it's tough and I'll never make you feel bad for not knowing the answer--but I'll make you feel good when you finally get it! I can explain things in a million different ways until I find the right method for the individual student. Plus, I'm super-funny and awesome.."

Laura "...Last year, as a sophomore in college, I was a TA for the Spanish Department, responsible for creating and executing my own lesson plans for two one-hour classes per week for Spanish 102, grading homework and designing my own quizzes. I also tutored occasionally through our on-campus tutoring program. Finally, for the past two summers I have worked at the extremely rigorous Breakthrough Collaborative Teaching Internship at their Miami, Florida location teaching 5th and 6th grade science, where I a was again responsible for my own lesson plans, classwork, homework and quizzes..."

Devin "...Additionally, I've given many informative briefings over my time in military service. I tutor all lower level common core subjects, but specialize in Arabic at an undergraduate level. Arabic is my favorite subject to tutor, simply due to comfort and passion for the language. I like teaching by demonstrating a concept, and then having it demonstrated back to me, until I know for sure that a student has absorbed the material..."
Laura "...I have since taken my own personal experiences as a student and improved my own teaching style. I find that students are able to easily relate to me, because of my age and approachability. It was, after all, not that long ago that I was exactly in their shoes. Last summer, I also served as a college admissions guidance counselor and essay revisionist..."

Laura "I'm a graduate of St. John's College and Georgetown Law. Teaching is in my blood-my mother is a teacher, and she instilled in me the love of helping someone reach his or her potential with compassion and enthusiasm. I have been tutoring since middle school and I don't ever plan on stopping! My favorite subject to tutor is the LSAT, but I also LOVE English, US History, and World History..."

My tutoring experience is predominately in Math and Science, middle school to early college. I also plan to teach SAT classes in a lecture/classroom setting soon. I tend to have an easy going demeanor and find it easy to connect with students..."

David "... Having a passion for the sciences, I worked in various research positions from studying endangered desert tortoises in the Mojave Desert to studying the population genetics of ornamental fishes of the Amazon. I realized I missed the human connection and pursued medical school at the University of Connecticut; where I've found medicine combines both my love of science and helping others. Throughout my research and training in the past nine years, I have tutored students on how to master standardized tests, and helping students achieve their maximum potential to get into the school of their dreams has been an incredibly rewarding experience..."
