"Since the circle has been made of flexibility, I teach in the style that seems to fit the situation. I like to draw, I like figuring out puzzles, I like to flip problems upside down (usually not literally) to solve them and explain to others how to reached the end. I am a recent UCSD graduate with a passion for learning and a drive to help others. Consequently, I’ve worked in education most of my life and aspire to become a medically/educationally transparent pediatrician. I feel all knowledge is accessible to anyone who wants it, so if you ask me, I’ll teach you anything I know how." ...

"I've been living in New York since the beginning of June, when I started working in a curatorial department at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I hope to spend a few years working before I head to graduate school to pursue a PhD in History of Art. With this advanced degree, I hope to start a career as a curator at a museum. In the next few years, I would like to start learning German and possibly continue my Russian language study."

"Thus, while concurrently in law school, I became involved in higher education at the University of Illinois - Urbana/Champaign where for two years I instructed my own classrooms of university students in courses on written and oral communication at a variety of skill levels.

"I love helping others grasp concepts by teaching them in a fun, personable, and exciting manner. I’ve always thought that the best way to truly understand something is not simply through knowledge, but through application.

Whatever age, I am ready and willing to help! Hopefully I have the opportunity to work with you!."

" Throughout my four years as an undergraduate, I volunteered as a tutor for elementary and middle school students in local public schools and in after-school tutoring programs. I also have experience working with children with special needs and IEPs. I absolutely loved these experiences and wanted to continue tutoring post-graduation.

" During my senior year at Cornell, I tutored at MacCormick Secure Center, a local Juvenile detention facility. This was a volunteer position that involved designing creative and educational lesson plans, which I later taught during weekly tutoring sessions. In addition to my experience tutoring at MacCormick Secure Center, I have worked as a swim instructor for children from the ages of 3 to 15. I have also tutored multiple elementary school students in basic math and reading in a one-on-one setting, as well as high school students in science and math. As a tutor with Varsity Tutors, I am excited to be able to help other students reach ...

"As soon as I started working with kids I knew that was the missing piece! While I went back to school for elementary education, I was able to tutor and work with a variety of different age groups and levels. For tutoring I like to incorporate different ideas, activities, and even other subjects into the lesson. I feel sometimes it may be difficult for the student to understand and grasp hard concepts, but I help them by giving them visuals, getting them involved, and connecting the concepts to personal interests and familiar ideas. In my free time, I like to explore the city (it’s still very new to me!)." ...
