Paul ...Institute to teach ACT & SAT prep courses. I originally viewed tutoring as a part-time job to help finance graduate school, but I soon branched out into tutoring on my own and have enjoyed it so much that I have continued long into my college teaching career, which also spans more than fifteen years.... Tutoring is about people as much as it is about the subject matter. The most important consideration in is providing an efficient and pleasant opportunity to learn. That really comes down to providing relevant information in a caring, patient, understandable, and interesting manner. It's a lot easier to learn - and to tutor -- if both of the participants are smiling.

Leslie ...I recently graduated with my Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in Applied Physics. I love teaching and helping students grasp concepts. I believe in moving beyond rote memorization to personal mastery and ownership of one's education. I am available to tutor in SAT Math Test prep, Algebra 1-4, Pre-Calulus, and Trigonometry.... I found it most rewarding to continuously remind my students that math and science mastery is obtainable as long as they were willing to persevere and struggle through difficult concepts.
