Sharlene "...I tutored students during the school year and the summer. I love working with children. It is exciting to me when a child gets something he/she did not understand before.

Neicea "... With prior experience as an undergraduate statistics TA and an HIV/AIDS educator abroad (for elementary and university students), I possess the teaching and student development skills that would benefit a diverse student body. For Varsity students this might mean that I provide pre-prepared visual aids or refer to online resources like Zygote Body (an online, 3D anatomical atlas) for an engaging and effective lesson. For other sessions, my approach might be to employ a color code system or mnemonics that support a specific learner in making mental connections between concepts. I will assess what works best for each student and directly target his/her educational objectives – regardless of subject, level of difficulty, or learning style..."

One involved overseeing operations for Halliburton Energy Services in Colorado and the second was as a project engineer for LyondellBasell in New Jersey.

Liliana "I am an undergraduate studying at Arizona State and have experience working in my school's writing center as a tutor. I find that the best approach to interacting with students is to be friendly, open, and patient. We have all struggled in a subject at some point in our lives, and I hate to see students get flustered or embarrassed when they don't understand a concept. I'm upbeat and enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for what I have learned with the people that I meet..."
Chelsea "...Before becoming a certified teacher, I was a volunteer tutor for school and community outreach programs such as Seeds of Success, Best Buddies, and Peer Assistance Leaders. I also went on a service mission where I taught a variety of people on a daily basis. These experiences helped me to relate to students individually and teach with their interests and personality in mind. In preparation to teach 5th and 1st grade, I was formally trained in current teaching strategies for all subjects..."
