"To that end, I love helping students master concepts and expand their base of knowledge and sense of scope. I started tutoring in high school and have tutored elementary through college-aged students, as well as teaching 10th grade English for a year and serving as a teaching assistant at Harvard University and the University of Cape Town. I've tutored test prep, English, literature, writing, math, and social sciences. My undergraduate degree is from Wellesley College and my masters is from Harvard, so while I've spent seven years in Boston's frigid clime, I love being back in my hometown. I have "itchy feet," according to my dad--I love ...

" In the fall of 2012, I will be attending medical school. My desire to pursue a career in medicine naturally translates to a strong interest and passion for the sciences. However, my math and economics background as well as my interest in Writing and English makes me extremely excited about tutoring in a variety of other areas as well. I have tutored informally in high school (mostly in math and English), and I even worked at an after school tutoring center."

" I am a former classroom teacher at a wonderful Houston charter school, as well as several different schools around the world. I have worked with students from kindergarten to middle school in many different subject areas. I love the learning process, and figuring out how to best design a lesson for a specific student so that learning is fun, engaging and meaningful. For me, learning is not about drilling memorization facts. My ultimate goal with students is to make a connection with them and bring alive pre-algebra, phonics, the questioning mechanics of the SAT - whatever the student is learning." ...

"My high school in Kearney, NE did not have an established tutoring program, but I extended a hand to my teachers and peers to help them with subjects such as Spanish, math, and English. Through these informal tutoring sessions, I realized that the most important goal for a tutor is not merely doing the work for the student, but for the tutor to gently guide the student through the process of dissecting and analyzing problems until the student builds enough confidence in his skills to tackle the problem head-on by himself the next time he confronts it; in some sense, a tutor's goal is to make his job own obsolete. While I will not promise that I ...
