"In high school, I was fortunate enough to have an AP Biology teacher who laid the groundwork for my major and career and I am passionate about providing this same opportunity to other students. My experiences in research provide a valuable wealth of knowledge for students in science classes. My style of teaching includes introducing current research and modern scientific technology to inspire and make classes more relevant than simply reading from a textbook. I have firsthand experience with genetic modification of bacteria and other interesting biological techniques, as well as interesting stories and facts from professors of ...

"Having a set curriculum is helpful, but having one-on-one tutoring allows students to get individualized attention in the particular areas they need help with. My degree is in English with a concentration in writing and editing, but I am equally good with many math subjects, especially for the various standardized tests. My interests include writing, photography, travel, learning foreign languages, and learning about how language shapes the way we think. When I am not teaching, I work as a writer, editor, and photographer. In 2012 I published a book about living in Buddhist monasteries and traveling around Thailand. My next books, ...

"In my senior year of college, I was appointed as the Classical Studies Department tutor for Latin. One of the things I enjoy most about tutoring students in Latin and Italian is helping them build a stronger foundation in their native English language as well as in the foreign language. Over the course of my years as a tutor I have seen my students expand their vocabulary and rhetorical skills in English through their study of foreign and classical language, and I firmly believe that by grasping the roots of language students will set themselves apart as writers, not only for standardized tests and in college, but throughout life. During my ...

"I love English and History, and minored in the former in undergraduate at George Washington University (with a major in International Affairs.) My tutoring style is very flexible: I am always interested in trying new methods of memorization--from mnemonics to interactive games and creative activities--and appreciate that everyone learns differently. I received very high scores on the AP English, US History, European History, World History, and Psychology exams, and attended Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria, Virginia. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions at ...
