Timothy "...I graduated from the University of Virginia in May with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. As an older brother, former babysitter, and camp counselor, I have always enjoyed working with children of all ages. It was my own youthful fascination with the natural world which led me to study science - the kid in me is what helps me connect with children. I place an emphasis on giving each child the tools they need to figure things out for themselves, especially for math and hard sciences such as chemistry..."

Tiyata "...Math is so much fun for me! Typically you follow rules and the answer just happens, this is awesome! I also love tutoring/ guiding students through the college selection experience.

Alexander "...I feel this allows the student to behave more comfortably, and in turn, get more out of the material that they are learning. This strategy has worked especially well in the Baltimore City Prison. I do recognize that each student is an individual and may have different ways of learning material..."
