"Working one-on-one with a student is a great opportunity to really focus on the individual's academic needs or talents, and allows the tutor to be able to provide exactly what the student needs to progress in his or her academic career. I have taught for University of Maryland University College for the past two years in Greece. I teach members of the US Navy, and I have found it one of the most challenging and exciting experiences in my academic career. Students in my classrooms often have varying educational backgrounds, so I have had to modify the curriculum so that it fit all students, regardless of their academic level." ...

"I tutor multiple levels of math, ACT and SAT prep in Math and English, and Spanish. My philosophy as a tutor is that students know more than they think they do. I like to guide my students through solving problems by using their prior knowledge and experience, and asking questions so that they can participate as much as I do. My favorite thing about tutoring is getting to know my students on an individual basis, and figuring out how they learn best."

" In graduate school I was a teaching assistant for an introductory Physics class for one semester. I led laboratories as well as a discussion period to go over homework questions. Being a lifelong student of math and science, I think I have a strong understanding of students' frustrations with the subjects having experienced many of them myself at one point or another. I can provide a fresh perspective to students and help them view problems in different ways that teachers may not have the time to do. ."

"I do my best to keep lessons fun and interesting by connecting them to a student's interests whenever possible. I believe that one-on-one help is often the best pathway to success, and I enjoy individualizing my lessons to a student's interests and needs.
