Conklin "... My area of interest is Genetics, and I hope to eventually receive my PhD in Bioinformatics. I believe that learning is all about asking questions. The most important skill we can develop as students and people is to realize the things that we do not know and find ways to ask questions about them. Whatever these things are, they are most certainly different for everyone, and challenging them and tackling them head on is a sure fire way to grow intellectually..."
Brian "...I am very patient and understand that many students have different ways of learning and can adapt my teaching style to individual students. I can bring visual aids to help a student understand a topic easier and I know a number of easy and safe home experiments to perform that will show a student that science is fun and interesting. I am a huge football fan and love going to see movies..."

Sara "Some of the most effective ways to learn science, math, and Spanish are from people who use these subjects every day: for example, a Spanish speaking scientist. My teaching style is very different to that of a typical classroom because I use concepts from science and math every day and understand how they are most easily applied and explained. I try however possible to enrich the learning students gain in the classroom with practical applications for the scientific world..."
