" Learning Mandarin here in the States can be a daunting task for any student. Besides the obvious obstacles of differentiating tones and writing characters, the language is infused with many cultural nuances that add to its beauty as well as its complexity. As a native speaker of English myself I know just how difficult learning Mandarin can be. After several extensive trips to China (including 6 months as an exchange student at Xiamen University) I also know how much fun there is to be had, not to mention the plethora of opportunities that come with speaking Mandarin well. The Chinese have a saying: One more friend, one more road." ...

"To be able to take someone with an attitude of the topic being too hard to being confident enough to approach any challenge. I love showing how a deeper understanding can translate to being able to adapt to any situation you encounter on the test. This approach served me well as both an undergraduate and graduate teaching assistant. This is more than a career for me, it is a life style of constantly learning and sharing knowledge."

" I also enjoyed learning new all-region etudes every August and strived to concert pieces while I was in the Duncanville Wind Ensemble. I began tutoring students in high school prepare for the TAKS exam. This sparked my interest in the teaching field, and I ended up taking part in the inaugural SMU Eagle Scholars program during the summer of 2008. I taught everything from music to algebra. It was not only a valuable experience for these junior high students, but also for me."

" Over the past academic year I was a Teaching Assistant for the Introductory and Advanced HIV/AIDS Epidemiology courses. I had the pleasure of introducing many non-science majors to the interesting and complicated world of HIV. I found that my passion for the science and the material helped me get the difficult concepts across to my students. As a tutor I can be very patient and try as much as possible to relate to the student."

"I loved coming to work for the first time in my life! I enjoyed the interactions with the students I helped. Working alongside and helping other diligent students really inspired me to work harder towards my biology degree and chemistry minor. When I’m not tutoring or studying I enjoy indulging in one of my many hobbies. Some of them are drawing, sculpting, reading, swimming, and even rock climbing! Recently I’ve also started learning to dance merrengue, bachata, and salsa! While I’m not an expert yet, I still really have fun dancing at a number of different live band clubs all around the DFW! I tutored students of a vast age group ranging ...

"But I think understanding and connecting ideas is more sustainable than "getting it right" one time. I think it’s important to empower students so they can become enthusiastic independent learners. What drives me? A curiosity for how people think."

"I like to help students get beyond just understanding the material to "learning how to learn." Everyone could use a little help with study skills and test-taking strategies. It might sound weird, but I hope our sessions are so successful that you never have to see me again! When I'm not teaching and tutoring I love to sing karaoke and ride my bike. In fact, I invented a Mobile Karaoke Unit that I pull along behind me on my bike! But I promise I'll never subject you to my singing (unless you ask).."

"I am available to tutor in areas ranging from elementary to college-level math and science. Before joining the Varsity Tutors team, I worked as a college admissions seminar leader-I am an excellent resource for insider tips in gaining admission to selective colleges and universities. When I was a high school senior, I was accepted into 8 Ivy League universities, as well as Stanford and MIT. I truly appreciate and enjoy helping students of all ages achieve their college admissions goals! Outside of teaching and tutoring, I love to run and explore the city of Houston." ...

"In high school, I helped to start an after-school/lunchtime tutoring system, where students could go for extra help on their free periods. After graduating college, I began teaching part-time at my religious school; I am currently teaching fifth graders various aspects of Judaism, from the prayer service, to morals and ethics, to learning about Israel, to reading and translating Hebrew. My general theory on tutoring is if someone can explain a subject or a problem back to you, then they can solve the same type of problem or perform the skill on their own. I will work through problems with students initially and explain any concepts they ...
