"I graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in NYC in 2008, the oldest English speaking acting conservatory in the world. In spite of my English background, I do a lot of math and physics tutoring. I'm a huge Red Sox fan and love watching detective shows when I have free time.."

"I then attended graduate school at DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois. While in graduate school, I was a TA and helped several undergrads in biology. I have found that several students have the potential to do well in school. The problems they face can be due to a variety of reasons, and one-on-one tutoring is a great way to help students figure out what those problems are and find out how to master the material. Aside from my math and science interests, I enjoy hanging out with family/friends, reading, movies, traveling, and I'm down for trying almost anything." ...

"I have "itchy feet," according to my dad--I love to travel, and have been to more than 20 countries. I lived in South Africa for two years on a research fellowship, and I studied Arabic in Egypt. I learned to surf in Costa Rica and ate a lot of pasta in Italy. In my free time I am a voracious reader, as well as a soccer player, a godparent to a delightful one-year-old who lives in Atlanta, and a total sucker for BBC adaptations (but I also love reality TV!).."

" In my free time, I love reading, cooking (I’m currently working on the perfect chocolate soufflé), yoga, and traveling (Costa Rica and Amsterdam are the plan for this summer). I have been tutoring since 2002 and my experience encompasses a wide range of clients, from middle-school students to college students. In addition to tutoring subjects ranging from Pre-Algebra to World History and Biostatistics (just to name a few), for the past 1.5 years, I have been organizing and conducting weekly recitation sessions for Biochemistry at the University of Houston. I have also been assisting faculty in the Biology department with weekly ...

"As a tutor, I work hard to help each student get to a place where they can feel comfortable with the material and go into every test with confidence in their ability. I like to find many different ways to explain topics or formulas including fun tricks that make them easier. I understand that not everyone has the same learning style and like to find one that fits each of my students. As a college freshman, I am close enough to middle school and high school to remember the classes and understand the stress students are under to do well so they can ensure their future. I think a tutor-student relationship works better if the tutor can understand the ...

" However, my interest in studying the natural world has caused me to suffer through more math classes than I care to count. As a result, I am well-equipped to help 'math-shy' students understand, appreciate, and flourish in a subject that they may have previously disliked. I believe in forging a relationship between the student and the subject matter with the idea being able to answer the question "when will I ever need to know this?" is the first step to understanding. Currently, I live in Houston with my bride, Nathalie, and our great big black lab, affectionately know as "The Bear". I love being out-of-doors in any capacity and am an avid ...

"I know what it is to work HARD for a grade! I believe this makes me a better tutor, as I can truly empathize with my clients and their struggles.
