George ...tutor in college through Washington and Lee University, and students would tell me that they specifically preferred my tutoring methods over those of other tutors that the university employed on other nights. Students that I tutored would even track me down in the library on my off nights for help if they had an upcoming exam. I'm available to tutor during the day, the evening, or at night all months of the year.... All thing come with time (and attention)!

Steven ...of experience, I've found that this tendency allows me to have enough flexibility to handle unexpected situations in the sessions. This might include stumbling upon knowledge gaps or working with a student who hasn't had material effectively communicated to them previously. I started tutoring my senior year of high school and continued into my college years at Emory; thanks to this, I'm confident that I can teach effectively in a wide variety of subjects.... Overall, I endeavor to put the student's goals first in the classroom. Since every situation is different, I try to put forth a broad-base teaching style that becomes more specific to each individual pupil's needs as I get to know their learning style better. In general, I prefer more hands-on and procedural styles of teaching - I find that a student explaining their logic and methods behind an individual problem can often reveal far more than a test score alone.
