"I try to heavily focus on helping students answer their own questions to create interactions that allow them to experience for themselves, not merely witness, the rational nature of math and science. I use a variety of mediums including short videos, illustrations, and occasionally music when appropriate to allow abstract concepts to become concrete memories. I have worked with a variety of ages from as young as 7th grade to as old as college seniors, which has given me experience to deal with almost every imaginable problem in the tutoring field. I have been a private tutor, worked with tutorial centers, and even been employed as a ...

"Upon finishing my degree I joined an organization called Teach For America which helps place teachers in our nation's lowest performing areas. Over the last two years I taught high school math and science in the Mississippi Delta. More specifically, I taught 12th grade Psychology/Sociology/English, 11th grade Chemistry, 9th grade Physical Science/Algebra 1, and AP Physics. Whether working with large groups or individuals, accelerated learners or students requiring extra support, being a part of the teaching and learning process is amazing! Outside of academics I really enjoy the wilderness, sports, and music." ...

"Thinking critically and solving problems is a skill and it needs to be fostered like any other. Our brains process information in many different ways, so I like to use a combintation of real-world examples as well as the text book variety. All we need to do is find out how to make the concepts "click" for you, then I will help you develop the long-term knowledge by instilling good habit patterns of studying and practice."

" A lot of students have trouble learning because they are just trying to memorize rules instead of learning why things work, and this comes up if they don't have a teacher who really cares about explaining the subject matter in a way that students can understand. I have had success teaching in the past because I care about whether or not my students understand what I am teaching, and I will do everything in my power to explain things in a simple, humorous, and hopefully memorable fashion. Finally, my teaching experience has taught me the value of patience, and that if you are patient with your students they will be patient with you while you try to ...

" I now live in San Diego. Having studied abroad in Spain and Argentina, I also hold minors in Spanish and in International Engineering. I started tutoring in college, first in Spanish, and later in English. I also coached a swim team and was a private swim lesson instructor, where I worked with children ranging in ages 5 to 15. I'm drawn to home tutoring because it really allows the tutor to cater to the individual student and progress can be make much quicker than in a generalized group learning setting."

" I always try to find ways to make the subject matter easy to relate to. I don't believe there is such a thing as a difficult subject, I just believe that each student has strengths and weaknesses, and that it is best to focus on the strengths and use them to overcome the weaknesses. For example, some students struggle with word problems in math, but they enjoy drawing pictures. I like to teach students how to draw pictures to solve word problems."
