"As a high school student, and more so as a college student, I came to value discipline and hard work. I believe that there are very few subjects a student cannot master with hard work and dedication. In the past, I tutored students for Regents examinations, AP exams, as well as for the SAT. I also had a wonderful opportunity to teach GED prep courses to high school dropouts in Brooklyn."

"The cliche about not noticing the time pass when in one’s element perfectly describes how I feel when I tutor. Thus, I am able to devote almost limitless energy and patience to helping students reach their full potential. For the past five years, I have tutored a range of subjects and students, from fourth grade math to college-level writing. Though my specialty is writing--I recently worked as a tutor at the University of Maryland Writing Center--I love helping students tackle any subject they encounter, whether it's biology, geometry, Latin, or the SATs." ...

" In my 16 years of schooling in Atlanta and Athens, I have come to feel that the structure of our educational system, while undoubtedly helpful to many students, often leaves much to be desired. In classrooms packed with dozens of students, teachers often cannot devote the necessary time to individual students to help them with the particular questions and problems they encounter in their studies. Students also cannot help but compare themselves with their peers around them, and often become discouraged when they cannot seem to understand what so many people around them appear to grasp in an instant. This problem of student ...

"I’m currently working on my thesis for an M.F.A. in nonfiction writing at Columbia University, but I started off as a field biologist, studying birds in Alaska. As a tutor, I draw on a wide range of tools, from organizational and time-management skills to interpersonal finesse and a strong knowledge base in English, writing, science, and high-school-level math. To my early education and five years working in the field of biology I have added years of work as an editor and writer."

" My long-term career goal is to become a biology or environmental science teacher—but for now, I am connecting with students through Varsity Tutors. I feel that real breakthroughs are made in this one-on-one setting. I like to change students’ perceptions of concepts from mystifying to attainable. I enjoy teaching life science, SAT and ACT prep, and Spanish and Italian.

" Often I have been enlisted to assist others with studying math at all levels and occasionally other subjects. In general I find that the best aspect of tutoring is that the typical one-to-one nature is the ultimate in small class size, allowing for full attention to be given to the individual. In part because of my set of eclectic interests, I find all interests to be equally valuable and play some role in society, small however it may be. (There is some intrigue in just about everything!) For standardized tests like the SAT and ACT, knowing the strategies for the test is often as important as being able to determine the answer. The structure of ...

" Before this I attended the University of Texas at Austin where I received my Bachelor's degrees in Geography and Humanities. Having been exposed to an eclectic background of liberal arts and hard science I am comfortable tutoring across a broad range of subjects and encourage students to see the inherent connections between their work and real-world applications. Despite my technical background, I am a person who would much rather contemplate the words in a good book rather than the letters of a differential equation. However, my interest in studying the natural world has caused me to suffer through more math classes than I care to ...
