Kenny "...Further, I am entirely committed to the idea that taking an active role in one's education is critical to personal satisfaction and achievement as a student and throughout life. The great American educator Josef Albers once stated, "Good teaching is more a giving of right questions than a giving of right answers." Though we are all students of the world, the best teachers do not merely provide their pupils with correct answers, but rather inspire their students to actively investigate questions that will lead them to discover the true nature of new knowledge.

My favorite courses include Calculus I-III, Intermediate Micro- and Macroeconomics, Econometrics, and Business Statistics..."

Trish "... I have also volunteered as a literacy advocate for Ready Readers and as a tutor for Girls Inc. In my free time, I like to read books, bake, and train for races; I recently completed my first half marathon! My approach to tutoring is recognizing that everyone has a different learning style. Experimenting with different approaches to learning, whether that be visual, auditory, or tactile- kinesthetic, enables the student to not only grasp the material, but also retain it..."

Everyone learns differently and there is a way to teach everyone once you breakdown the information to its most basic concepts and build up from there. I am sure that together we can set you on the right path to understanding the subject matter at hand.."
