" A lot of students have trouble learning because they are just trying to memorize rules instead of learning why things work, and this comes up if they don't have a teacher who really cares about explaining the subject matter in a way that students can understand. I have had success teaching in the past because I care about whether or not my students understand what I am teaching, and I will do everything in my power to explain things in a simple, humorous, and hopefully memorable fashion. Finally, my teaching experience has taught me the value of patience, and that if you are patient with your students they will be patient with you while you try to ...

"I was an AVID tutor for the entire duration I was in school, meaning I was tutoring high school kids in English (regular and AP), Math up to Pre-Calculus, History (regular and AP), Biology and Chemistry. I started out in school as a Biology major, then switched to Chemistry with a Spanish minor. When I finished with the classes for the Spanish minor and was taking solely Chemistry classes, I realized how much Spanish had become a part of me and how I deeply missed it, so I switched my degree, yet again, to Spanish. I have always had a passion helping students do better in school." ...

"My teaching style is to break down complex tasks into smaller pieces so that the final concept can be understood at every stage. I believe that the best way to learn a new type of problem is to relate it to something you already know how to do. Every question is a question worth asking, and I will always take the time to adapt to your learning style and present material in the way that is easiest for you to understand.."

" As my academic background suggests, I am interested in many different subjects (if I could have also studied history, physics and literature, I would have!). I have taught music lessons for over a decade to students of all ages and musical backgrounds. As a result, I have learned how to identify students' learning styles, and most importantly, how to make unpleasant topics interesting -- or at least less unpleasant. Moreover, I have experienced the frustration and the struggles many students face in different subjects. In college as a music major, general math requirements were the bane of my existence. I had to retake classes and ...
