"My specialty and area of most experience is math, and like any playing a sport or an instrument, the best way to improve is to practice. Practice so many problems, that there will eventually be a point where the patterns will be visible, and the student can then take the set of principles they learn from these patterns and apply them to a different problem. No matter what factors are changed, the set of principles will stay the same, and that's the beauty of mathematics and much of science. I am very passionate about the improvement of my students- I am an upperclassman at Georgia Tech so I am used to the strange hours." ...

" We worked on math, science, social studies, and English. During college, I spent a month as a teacher's assistant in a middle school English Language Learners' classroom in Portland, Maine. The summer after my freshman year at Williams, I spent three weeks in rural Tanzania teaching English to seventh grade students. This past summer, I spent eleven weeks at the same Tanzanian school teaching English to students in kindergarten through ninth grade. Everyone has a different learning style, so I am open to suggestions and flexible in my teaching style in order to ensure that each student is successful and reaches his or her academic ...

"Gathering information is almost as enjoyable as sharing it with others. My experiences have ranged from teaching in elementary and high schools, to instructing in large and small corporations, as well as tutoring elementary, middle, high school, and college students. My favorite subject is Latin because it is so fun to teach and learn and and with it comes a discipline that is needed for success.

" I understand that tutors have a short amount of time to get through large amounts of material so I try to emphasize learning concepts and not just getting the right answer. I have always thought that this was especially important with math and more specifically math word problems. I only became comfortable with math during my last 2 years of high school so I understand how intimidated some students are by the subject. I am a graduate of the University of Louisville’s School of Medicine. Even though I will be starting residency soon, I do not intend to stop tutoring at that time." ...

"I'll graduate Kennesaw State's applied statistics masters program in May 2013. During my time as an undergrad, I was a peer leader for both general and nursing chemistry courses, a supplemental instructor for both trigonometry-based physics and college algebra courses, and a tutor in the Kennesaw State Math Lab, which covers math courses from remedial math to calculus II, as well as basic statistics courses. I have also served as a private tutor to middle and high school students in all subjects. All of this is to say that I love math and science, and I do everything I can to pass that love on to other students." ...

"I found that the best way to teach a student is to get to know them: their interests, their learning style, and their goals. I taught high school Biology in a public school for two years and simultaneously helped upperclassmen with SAT and ACT prep as well as general college application preparation. Nothing made me happier than when students brought me their college acceptance letters! I have a passion for education and I believe that with the right approach, you or your student can master any subject!."
