Andrew I've been teaching math and science for 25 years and just love it. One of the best things about the job is seeing and hearing when a student truly understands a math concept. They always look so happy that they figured it out! I also really enjoy thinking of the best question I can ask in order to make the student think more. It's tons of fun!... I feel all people inherently want to learn. My job as a teacher is to help them explore new concepts by demonstrating how concepts they already know are similar to the new ones. This approach helps break down any preconceived notions about the difficulty of a new concept. It also helps build self-esteem in the learner.

To me teaching is more than a profession; my passion in life is sharing my knowledge with curious minds. ... I arouse a student's curiosity by asking question(s).... I would do that by telling the student what rewards are waiting for him/ her, both tangible and intangible, should he / she succeed in his/ her studies.

Megan ...teaching and traveling. And it is my hope that I get to continue to travel, meet new people, and mentor, nourish, and collaborate with new relationships along the way. My philosophy on tutoring is directly in line with this idea. A tutor is not meant to replace the teacher in the classroom. Rather, a tutor should play the role of a mentor, guiding students to find their own successes. In order to do this, a...
