Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Pre-Calculus tutors in Prairie Village, KS
"I tutor math and sciences, middle school through college levels. I have over 2 years of experience tutoring students in Algebra, pre-Algebra, Geometry, Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. As a college graduate with a bachelor's degree in Natural Sciences and 2 years experience working in a research lab, and a medical school applicant, I understand in depth the subjects that I tutor, as well as my students, their needs, and motivation to learn. I love exploring new ways of presenting material to students and expanding their understanding of a difficult subject or concept." ...

"I could be that nerd that they base TV characters on, I have excellent communication skills. Teaching has always come easily to me, and my students claim to learn well from my flexible teaching styles. I can effectively relate the material to students' lives so they can understand it in their own terms. If the student doesn't reach the answer on his own, then it won't be meaningful or committed to memory."

" I currently work in a research laboratory at the University of Kansas Medical Center. I have over seven years of research experience in the life sciences (chemistry, general biology, biochemistry, biophysics, physiology, etc), so I would be able to assist in a variety of fields. As a graduate student, I was a teaching assistant for several undergraduate and graduate level biochemistry courses. Science is my true passion, but I also have experience tutoring in math and test prep. I have been tutoring since high school, and have excellent communication skills. Scientific concepts can be really complex." ...

"I have over eight years experience tutoring, mostly in math and science, but other subjects as well. I attempt to find analogous concepts from a student's other interests or daily experiences to make abstract concepts more understandable. I believe that generally, grasping a concept follows on from realizing it's not so foreign as we used to think.."

"While psychology and math have been my personal areas of study, my clients have ranged from preschool children getting a head-start on phonics to postdoctoral students who need to navigate SPSS for their theses. I began tutoring as the scholarship chair for my fraternity in undergraduate, before getting a student job in graduate school teaching math, English as a Second Language and science to student athletes at ESU. After falling in love with tutoring, I began taking clients both privately and through agencies like Varsity Tutors, and have been teaching medium to large-sized reading speed classes as well as small group and ...

"I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry and minors in spanish, public health, and psychology. I have tutored anatomy and have a great deal of knowledge in biological and chemical sciences as well as mathematics. As a medical student, tutors have often been my saving grace when it comes to doing well in school.

"I've been tutoring and teaching math since high school, when my teachers occasionally gave the floor to me on topics that I had mastered, and where I also tutored incoming 8th graders to get them up to speed in algebra. I believe that all students have a kernel of mathematical ability that can be tapped. Too often we are taught that mathematical ability is rare and precious, when in fact it's quite common, if you know what to look for. I pride myself on being able to appreciate and foster whatever talent my students have, so that they can become stronger and more confident mathematically.." ...
