"Hi there! I've been tutoring privately for over five years and I'm excited to tutor for Varsity Tutors. I tutor a wide variety of subjects and I love helping students reach their full potential by teaching them various learning techniques. I do my best to keep lessons fun and interesting by connecting them to a student's interests whenever possible. I believe that one-on-one help is often the best pathway to success, and I enjoy individualizing my lessons to a student's interests and needs. My background is in Linguistics and Communication Disorders, but I have always loved math and science as well." ...

"I love teaching! As a young person I saw my parents change the trajectory of their lives as immigrants to this country through education. I fully recognize the importance of learning. For the past two years I taught mathematics at the middle and high school level as a Teach For America corp member in the Dallas Independent School District. I know that the confidence that a student receives when they finally understand a concept that has alluded them is powerful enough to positively impact them in all arenas of their life, not just in school." ...

"Hello, I am a PhD student at the University of Illinois Chicago. I am able to teach a wide variety of subjects at both an advanced, college level as well as providing a sound foundation in the basics. My personal strengths are microbiology, biochemistry and organic chemistry, but that is not to say that I am unable to teach subjects in mathematics, inorganic chemistry or many other subjects. Part of my everyday routine is using the concepts learned in these subjects to perform my duties. As part of my education and background, I have taught classes at an introductory college level in Biology 101 and 102." ...

"Hello! My name is Anne, and I'm a super tutor! Why? Well, there's a couple of reasons: First, I really care. I want you (or your child) to learn! I'm not happy until you leave a tutoring session with me feeling confident in your knowledge of a subject. Second, I don't give up easily. If one way of explaining something doesn't work, I'll try a second."

"It's my pleasure to introduce myself as a Varsity Tutor, specializing in the sciences and mathematics. It's been a long journey that brought me to this point; one that's given me invaluable experiences that I bring to my teaching and tutoring style. I grew up on the coast of New Jersey, and attended a public high school that is now considered failing. While there, I worked as hard as I could to exceed standards and developed an intrinsic motivation to learn anything and everything that I could. By the time I completed that experience, I was prepared and yearning to move on to greater things. I found such things at the University of Chicago, ...

I'm a fun, engaging teacher with a dynamic personal energy, and one of my greatest strengths is generating enthusiasm in even the most reluctant students.
