Benjamin "...Yes, the body requires exercise to remain healthy and to develop further, but so too does the mind! The brain is metaphorically a muscle that can be developed through repetition of the correct training patterns. While attending William and Mary, I continued my passionate pursuit of foreign language studies, particularly French Literature and Spanish immersion over the summers away from school. During winter and spring vacation from college, I tutored high school students who were preparing for all levels of Spanish exams in my hometown of Arlington, Virginia..."

Holly "...I've tutored U.S. History at the elementary, middle, and high school levels; World History at the middle school level; Earth Science and reading at the elementary level; and writing at both the elementary and graduate levels. My favorite subject to both teach and tutor is anything related to history - examining different perspectives and their influence on later decisions is something which I find truly fascinating. I earned a degree in English Literature, with a minor in History, from Oglethorpe University in Atlanta, GA, as well as a Master of Arts in Teaching, with a concentration in early childhood and elementary education, from Pacific University in Eugene, OR..."

Throughout my academic career, I worked with a variety of students and enjoyed helping them master subject matter and prepare for tests.

Simone "...I am a firm believer in many different study and learning habits as one tactic does not work for everyone. When I am not studying or tutoring, I enjoy reading for leisure, and I am most likely to be found on the soccer field, in the dance studio, or in bed napping. I enjoy nerdy puns and crime shows and playing with my cats..."
Sarah "...I have been tutoring math consistently during the school year for the past two years; my work has encompassed both homework coaching and exam review. So much of grade school math is learning to see connections between concepts and build on earlier work. When I help students with math, I guide them towards making connections and ensure that they understand how concepts are interrelated - the Pythagorean theorem and the distance formula, for instance. I believe that the best way to make sure a student remembers a theorem or formula is to teach them how and why it works..."
