Jeana "...When I left Germany and came to the United States for college, I became certified to tutor Calculus I and the German language at Johns Hopkins University through their student-to-student tutoring service, "The Learning Den." Tutoring has been such a joy of mine because of the students I've been able to work with. Working together to get through a tough concept or problem is made totally worthwhile when the student then says, "Ok, let me do this next one on my own. I've got this." That's when I know knowledge has truly been shared, and that both the student and I have done our jobs. When I'm not tutoring, I love to be outside! You can find me either running on the beach in the summer or snowboarding on the slopes in the winter..."

Clinton "...My favorite subject to tutor is Physiology because that is a discipline that is currently a part of my everyday life, and I would love to impart it onto other people and find different ways to teach it that way I can explain it better to my patients. My tutoring style is similar to the doctor-patient relationship: being patient, explaining concepts in basic terms that are easy to understand, being constantly available for assistance at anytime, and helping my students WANT to make progress in their studies (similar to making my patients WANT to improve their health). Aside from my medical work, I play both the violin and the piano, and find music to be very therapeutic for my stressful lifestyle..."
Robin "...After a couple of weeks, she had become more than just my student – she was a special person in my life. In fact, I was so captivated by this experience that upon my return to college, I volunteered to be a teaching assistant for a French course. Although I lacked prior teaching experience, I instantly felt comfortable in front of the classroom..."

Eleanor "...Clearly, I love words. While a student, I worked on the staff of a campus magazine, as well as tutoring students from many writing backgrounds who came into the University Writing Center for help with essays and other writing projects. I also have experience working with kids while a camp counselor for three summers at a girls' camp in Vermont. When I'm not at school or work, I can be found taking a hike, swimming laps at the pool, reading a book, or working on my knitting while watching a movie..."
