Jason I have taught and tutored students of all ages, from preschool to high school, particularly enjoying my work with ELL students and students with disabilities. I am especially passionate about foreign languages, the humanities, and social sciences. I have wanted to be a teacher from a rather young age, and I relish the chance to both help dedicated students to achieve academically and impart my knowledge to others.

Naomi Hi, my name is Naomi Soman, and I am happy to tutor for Varsity Tutors. I study English literature and philosophy, so reading and writing are my strongest suits, but I am glad to help in any of my listed subjects. Please send me a message to let me know how I can be of assistance!... It depends on the subject, but I like to be creative and use all sorts of materials to draw/write/graph etc.

Stephanie ...that education is a highly individualized endeavor. To that end, I will work with my students to create a plan specific to their goal. Whether that be working together for a short time to pass an exam, or for a longer period to gain extra help in a course, I believe that every learning opportunity should leave you with something you can apply in your future. I also hope to make the experience enjoyable too!
Benjamin ...best by visualizing, but if his students are more kinesthetically/feelings oriented, he has plenty of experience in theatre improvisation to creatively engage them using stories. Benjamin has over 100 hours of official tutoring, including professional math/science tutoring with two top tutoring agencies, and plenty of informal (“free”) tutoring as the “go-to smart guy” in most of his math/science classes since junior year in high school. Additionally, he has taught Stanford graduate students in 2 graduate...
Kristen ...the material with you, at your own pace. I love working with kids, and I also have experience working with students ages 6-24. I know that there's serious pressure on students to excel and learn at home, and that can be overwhelming for parents. I am confident that I can help students improve academically by working patiently and diligently with them one-on-one. My strongest subjects are high school level mathematics, biology, English, and neuroscience.... My teaching philosophy is to be patient and never give up on a student. If they reach out to me for help, I will give them my 100%.
Andrew I am from Chicago, Illinois but now live in Buffalo, New York. I am current freshman Civil Engineering major with a double minor in Mathematics and Spanish at the University of Delaware. I love to travel, learn, play sports, and help people. I have tutored for almost 4 years now and can definitely help anyone who needs it, especially in Math and Spanish. ... My teaching philosophy is based off what the tutee needs help with. I am a very flexible person and can adapt to any style that someone wants. Overall, I believe that as a teacher, my philosophy is to be insightful and to go at whatever pace the tutee wants to be able to get him/her to fully understand the material.
Pat Hi. I'm Pat and I would be happy to help you meet your academic goals. Whether you're interested in brushing up your skills or in an entire overhaul, I can provide the support and practice you need. As a certified teacher, I've been assisting students with grammar, sentence structure, reading comprehension, writing, and research for over fourteen years. I look forward to hearing from you.... Learning is an active process. The teacher's job is to provide opportunities for students to actively engage in a given subject and to provide immediate feedback to insure the best results.
Brandon ...this wasn't the case, I couldn't really see any point in devoting my life to it. Outside of school and work, I try and get outdoors as much as possible. In the fall and winter months, there is nothing more enjoyable than sitting in a tree stand, reading excerpts from Thoreau, Abbey, and McCarthy, waiting for that trophy buck to walk by. When I'm not hunting, you'll find me on the water, reeling in bass...

Caroline ...ages struggle with material at some point in their academic careers. I believe we learn best from teachers we feel genuinely care about us and our success. As an instructor, I work to build strong relationships with my students to better motivate them and get them excited about and invested in their work. In addition to guiding students towards a clearer understanding of material, I simultaneously work to impart the importance of non-cognitive skills. Patience,...
Avni ...and difficult, but often there is only one stumbling block that a student is having a problem with. Once you isolate the issue, everything becomes simple! My tutoring style is to talk and work through a lot of practice problems together. When the student feels comfortable tackling some practice problems on their own, I know they've mastered the concept. I'm also a great listener; if you tell me that you are having a problem in...
