"I absolutely love science and believe that chemistry is the essential building block of science. I think it's very important to understanding the key concepts of any particular topic in science. Once a basic understanding is established, the application of the concept is what makes science interesting. During my junior year in college, some of my friends and I in the chemistry department organized an impromptu tutoring session with a few freshman students."

" The one common factor that I have found is that everyone can learn if the material is explained to them in the manner they need. I enjoy seeing the individual come to the moment that they understand the material and no longer need the help as much as simply validation that they are on the right track. I have found that everyone learns in their own way and at their own speed.."

"I worked with middle and high school students during my time there. If you're not familiar with the program, it's designed to help students with whatever subjects they request, so it varies from day to day. I found myself helping out with math and science topics much of the time. I've had a couple of interesting jobs in the past which took me all over the place, but I'm glad to be re-settling in Fort Worth. When I grew up on the East Coast, I was fortunate enough to receive a good SAT I score, and SAT II scores."

"I have always known what is was I wanted to do when "I grew up" and never veered from that path. I started college at California State University Northridge knowing that my own classroom was the end goal. Throughout my time at CSUN, I studied my way through education classes, observed many different classrooms, and even worked as a preschool teacher and tutor. My path was becoming more and more clear and I loved every part of it. When I graduated from CSUN, I wasn't quite ready to settle into the "real world." I discovered a great opportunity in Weil Am Rhein, Germany where I taught at an International school." ...

"I currently tutor SAT Verbal, Writing and Reading Comp strategies at Karen Dillard's College Prep. I also privately tutored my peers in Spanish while I was an undergraduate at the University of Dallas. One-on-one tutoring provides students with an opportunity to receive the extra instruction and attention that they don't always receive in a classroom setting. There is nothing more frustrating than struggling to understand new concepts and new materials that everyone in your class already understands."

" Mathematics is a language, an art, a science, and a discipline. I view mathematics as a way for young minds to know the thrill of learning a serious discipline in a high-energy, focused environment. We play and learn. We in the western world tend to focus on the science and discipline without incorporating the language and art."

"Most of my experience comes from public schools in London, so I know very well the reputation this subject can have as being 'difficult' and 'boring'! My Masters in History Education, from the Institute of Education in London, has provided me with an exceptional understanding of the most successful methods and practices for teaching History. For me it is all about bringing the subject alive, and connecting its relevance to the present day. Seeing my students truly engaging with the material is extremely rewarding to me. My undergraduate degree was in American Studies, so my specialty is American History, however teaching in the UK also ...

" She told me that because I was different, that I would never amount to anything, I would never graduate college and I would never hold down a job. No student should ever have to hear this much less believe it. As a result, I make it a point to help others that having trouble. As for the teacher in question, I made sure to send her an invitation when I graduated from TCU."

" Education has been a lifelong passion (my grandmother was a public school teacher all her life), and I've worked as a teacher on three continents, including stints teaching English in Ghana and France. I tutor a variety of subjects now, including Test Prep and French. My greatest strengths lie in language arts (writing, reading, English, and literature), areas on which both my living and artistic career are based. I am currently head writer and editor for Undermain Theatre's blog -- feel free to check it out for a sample of my work. Every teaching experience is different." ...
