Orenthral "...Every Sunday night we would have sessions to make sure our students were back in town ready for the next week. And this was not mandatory, thereby instilling self-discipline in our participants. During graduate school, I also tutored fellow graduate students.

Michelle "...A high level of communication, organization, and creativity was developed through the interactive sessions with pupils; many of the activities and lessons were planned, lead, and delivered independently and with input from school teachers. I found the impact I made in the positive and productive direction, decision, and achievement of the young pupils to be extremely rewarding. In June 2010, I was selected to be a part of the Student Associates Scheme. This was a three week UK Government sponsored teaching placement in City Academy Bristol high school supporting the Mathematics department and lessons as full time teaching assistant..."

In my extracurricular time, I split my time between family, writing, and anything sports and fitness. Writing enables me to utilize my creativity and the sports and fitness serves as a great balance..."
Ramya "... While I loved the material I studied, I found that I was most passionate about education and how to provide it to all children, no matter where they came from. I taught 1st and 2nd grade for two years in DC, which has made elementary phonics and literacy my favorite subject to tutor. Besides teaching, I have tutored at a North Carolina-based tutoring company, working with students from 2nd grade through Juniors doing SAT prep. I tutor all elementary subjects, history, writing, and general test preparation. My teaching philosophy revolves around the idea that all children can learn..."

Ashten "... I began tutoring Math and Reading for elementary-aged students when I was in high school myself and continued my passion for education as a teaching assistant at both Cornell and Johns Hopkins. I am currently working for the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program at Goucher College, where I teach Chemistry and MCAT courses and lead small group and individual tutoring sessions in Biology, Organic Chemistry, and Physics. Although I enjoy tutoring a range of topics, I am particularly enthusiastic about Chemistry, as I enjoy helping students realize the applications of this science to every day life, and MCAT preparation, as I love watching my students actualize their goals..."
