# Award-Winning Science Tutors in Fitchburg, WI

Joseph ...material to the student and help assist in the learning process. I have a diverse background working as a stem cell researcher, QC microbiologist, and now a chef at a local restaurant. In my free time I train for triathlons, hike, and do fermentation work for both at home and restaurant use. I prefer to adapt my teaching style to whatever works for each student as I know from experience that everyone learns differently.

Tammi ...Edgewood College and Palmer College of Chiropractic. I love to play soccer, run and watch almost any sport. When not working I can often be found watching sports or playing soccer. While working with students my goal is to help them reach the goals they have set for themselves. I help them achieve these goals by tailoring my teaching/tutoring styles to best fit their learning style. Everyone learns and retains information differently and I strive...

Gregory I am an applied mathematician, specializing in probability. I used to teach at the university level, but moved into industry. After being away from teaching for some time I found that I still want to play a part-time role in education. It was my experience that one on one teaching in office hours brought the most benefit to students, so tutoring is the best way for me to take part in education.... It is a best to transmit knowledge and skills in a way tailored to each student's unique mindset. This fact makes classroom teaching very difficult, so for many students one-on-one tutoring is an optimal method to learn.

Debo I have extensive tutoring experience in math, physics, chemistry and engineering subjects. I really enjoy tutoring and like the interaction with students. ... Teaching is a way to share knowledge and improve your own learning.... By helping them understand the core concepts. Focus on understanding the problem itself rather than the solution.... By praising them on their successes, pointing out places for improvement and making learning a fun process.... I will try to illustrate the skill or concept with different examples that the student can relate to.

Will ...hundred different students from diverse writing backgrounds in all stages of the writing process. I believe that dialogue and interaction are the most effective ways to teach and learn, both through implicit and explicit methods. I tutor so that students will understand why and how a concept functions, and then be able to organize it and analyze its different parts. My strongpoints as a tutor are in writing, but I also have a strong math...

Sid ...ready transfer to the ever-popular University of Wisconsin. I've been helping people for a long time with understanding a variety of scientific and mathematical phenomena using my aptitude for understanding different perspectives. Many people who know me think I should be a diplomat. I hope this will serve students well as I become more heavily vested in the world of tutoring than before. I like to focus on math because it's something that I always...

Anna ...by far the best job I have ever had. I love to teach and find different ways to explain concepts to make them understandable for students. I also tend to get very enthusiastic about the subject at hand. It is my strong belief that they key to success in academics is true understanding. When a student understands why something works, memorization becomes a tool that is only rarely needed. Students that understand concepts can also...

Aaron I connect with people best through sharing ideas. The majority of my spare time is spent trying to simplify or find alternate proofs of basic theorems to make them more intuitive.... Focusing on beauty solves many problems a teacher faces. If I am attending a lecture about The Great Gatsby, I will be eager if the speaker tells of the beauty she sees, rather than a quick and dirty type of analysis. I regularly talk to people who admit math wasn't their favorite subject in school. Some were self-conscious. Some had gaps they never filled. Some just didn't care. Whatever the case, I admit to them that math is my favorite art form with as much room for expression as sculpting or jazz. I claim that mathematicians are half artists, half observers of fine art. My conversants often tell me it is an epiphany for them to think of math as such, and that it helps heal their math wound. A marvelous way I have found to unveil beauty in the classroom is by using surprise. I like to present ideas from a simple perspective, discuss them briefly, then release a theorem. Thales' theorem (the diameter of a circle subtends a right angle to any point on the circumference) is a great example, especially with the aid of Java applets. After playing a bit with triangles by moving points around in a worksheet, it's surprising to be able to connect two structures as basic as a right triangle and a diameter. Next in importance to marveling at beauty, I want students to learn to think critically to solve problems. Understandably, some students have never had guidance past high school drills. All the more, problem solving should be emphasized and revisited throughout college curriculum. I have many years of experience in problem solving competitions and a collection of principles regarding problem solving that I like to follow. One is about inverse problems. Consider the following: if baseball cards are five cents apiece and shipping costs fifty cents, how many cards will one dollar buy? After making the arithmetic clear, students had better know how to calculate the forward problem, i.e. "How much will x number of cards cost?" I'm depending on them knowing the forward problem because we covered it last week, but it is important to bring it out in more than just a mention so the students have a comfortable base to start. It's like revisiting rational numbers before diving into irrationals. They are intrinsically tied, and it gives the class confidence to start with old material.
