" However, my interest in studying the natural world has caused me to suffer through more math classes than I care to count. As a result, I am well-equipped to help 'math-shy' students understand, appreciate, and flourish in a subject that they may have previously disliked. I believe in forging a relationship between the student and the subject matter with the idea being able to answer the question "when will I ever need to know this?" is the first step to understanding. Currently, I live in Houston with my bride, Nathalie, and our great big black lab, affectionately know as "The Bear". I love being out-of-doors in any capacity and am an avid ...

"In my graduate career I tutored refugee children who had resettled in the United States. I find that because of my academic background I am easily able to relate to others and help them achieve their goals. At my core I am a problem solver; I find satisfaction in using teamwork to complete tasks that may not have otherwise been achievable. In my free time I enjoy running outdoors, scrapbooking, spending time with family and friends, reading, and volunteering. ."

"Louis after graduating to work at a local biochemistry firm. I tutor in my spare time because I enjoy it. I love helping people learn but ultimately, my goal is not to be needed in the future. An library of information is useless without someone to use it."

" I try to help students develop the skills they need so that they can move forward with confidence and continue to improve. I have been reading my whole life, and I've done a lot of creative writing, so I have a great love of words. I'm particularly fond of Shakespeare (although there are a lot of students who don't agree with me!) but I also have experience reading other European and American literature. My history experiences covers Europe, America, and Latin America, although I have a special fondness for Tudor England (think Henry VIII and his wives), early American history, and classical cultures, like ancient Rome. I think that ...

" My student evaluations were always very high and I focused on making history fun and relevant to things happening today. I try to take history from boring facts to interesting connections that tell a story and explain why events come about. I also try to focus on helping students learn to express their ideas through writing, both in formal essays and in-class. This includes writing well thought out thesis statements, analyzing the material, and making the correct connections from the material given to them, whether it is from a textbook or primary sources. Most importantly, I love teaching. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with others and am ...
