Steven "... I tutor because I have a passion for my work. I knew I wanted a career that helps people and education is one of the most rewarding fields one can choose. There is no greater feeling for me than when a student figures out a difficult problem..."
Alina "Learning has always been a passion of mine, and I strive to impart that passion to my students. I do not train my students to recite facts and figures. Rather, I encourage them to become self-motivated learners by creating a positive experience that is tailored to each individual..."

Julia "...I also worked as an environmental science teacher in Benin, West Africa as a Peace Corps volunteer.

Jordan "...I recently graduated from the University of Cambridge (England), where I earned a masters degree in engineering. While I tutor a number of subjects, math and physics are my favorites.

However, I am also keenly aware of the difficulties students can have with reading comprehension, writing clearly or understanding various subjects, especially if they are not receiving enough specific attention at school. I believe in meeting the student where he or she is at, and tailoring lessons to their needs and interests - making education a collaborative effort..."
