" However, my interest in studying the natural world has caused me to suffer through more math classes than I care to count. As a result, I am well-equipped to help 'math-shy' students understand, appreciate, and flourish in a subject that they may have previously disliked. I believe in forging a relationship between the student and the subject matter with the idea being able to answer the question "when will I ever need to know this?" is the first step to understanding. Currently, I live in Houston with my bride, Nathalie, and our great big black lab, affectionately know as "The Bear". I love being out-of-doors in any capacity and am an avid ...

"I am a recently returned Peace Corps Volunteer; I spent over a year working in a small school in Namibia (Southern Africa) teaching English, Math, and Computer Skills in a resource-poor environment. I am enthusiastic and creative, and am constantly scanning the latest pedagogical literature to keep abreast of current teaching theories. My strengths lie in verbal expression, although I have a background in science (especially biology) as well. My specialty is helping to improve language/reading scores and writing/editing skills, as my perfect scores in the verbal portions of the SAT and the GRE demonstrate." ...

" In addition to teaching in PA and FL, I have taught in London, England and Penang, Malaysia. I love playing soccer and cooking/eating fun and unique foods. Science is my favorite subject to teach, but I simply love imparting knowledge and skills that encourage life-long learning. Although I am certified K-6th grade, I have experience working with and substitute teaching middle and high school students. I enjoy teaching kids on a variety of levels."

" If it was never received and learned by the student, they were never taught. I teach Sciences (chemistry, biology), and Math and have an Arizona Department of Education Substitute Teaching Certificate. I have my Masters in Forest Resources but I tell everyone it's in Wood Chemistry. I enjoy the challenge of solving problems and I have used that as my basis for careers I have chosen. Here is a little of my Philosophy of Teaching..... Learning is, of course, the main purpose of education."

" My personal strengths are microbiology, biochemistry and organic chemistry, but that is not to say that I am unable to teach subjects in mathematics, inorganic chemistry or many other subjects. Part of my everyday routine is using the concepts learned in these subjects to perform my duties. As part of my education and background, I have taught classes at an introductory college level in Biology 101 and 102. I received high marks for engaging and explaining key concepts to my students. I have also tutored friends and family members ranging from high school to medical school." ...

"Both classes involved intensive student teacher interaction. While I love teaching and tutoring, I am a research scientist at the core with plans to continue graduate school in neuroscience after spending several years working in the biochemistry industry.

"I can proudly say I've taught math and hard science to all types, from poets to future engineers. I focus on teaching my students to always think for themselves and to come up with their own solutions rather than relying on rote memorization. My goal is that come test time, even if they are initially stumped, the intuition that students have worked so hard to build up will push them in the right direction. In my free time, I devour books, go on cooking adventures, and explore Chicago with my friends.."

"I’ve enjoyed tutoring Plano students at Renner Middle School, Schimelpfenig Middle School, Clark High School, and Plano East Senior High School. I teach middle school math (including Algebra) and sciences, as well as physics and a variety of high school and college math material (see my subjects list for more). Every student is different. I can help with your learning process because I've been going through it, too, for the last 10+ years. I know what high school and college material looks like."
