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..."
Brandon "I am a lifelong lover of learning, books, English, history, philosophy, words, and the beauty, logic, and subtleties of language. I am a creative teacher by trade and by nature, and find great satisfaction and joy in bringing out the best in my students. For me, few thrills equal the amazing symmetry, the intense dynamism, of the teacher-student relationship..."

Nora "... Since I was ten years old, crafts have held a special place in my heart; embroidery, crochet, and wire-and-bead jewelry claim most of my crafting time, and I design Celtic knotwork-inspired cross-stitched bookmarks. I've enjoyed gardening for nearly as long as crafting, and I love nurturing a vegetable or herb plant from seed to harvest. In keeping with my love of language, I'm also an avid reader..."
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..."

Brad "...All the while, allowing me to develop a finer understanding of the content through teaching and becoming a better communicator and teacher. Though I did eventually stop scholastic tutoring to pursue my passion of healthy food and cooking, my learning and teaching has never and will never stop. True learning happens not with specific material or method but when the conditions are right..."
Stephanie "I tutored my first student almost ten years ago, and I enjoy working with all age brackets! My specialties are Math and Writing, but I have experience in just about everything.."
