" I enjoyed the competitive team matches during the fall terms and the all-day Friday tournaments during the spring terms. I also enjoyed learning new all-region etudes every August and strived to concert pieces while I was in the Duncanville Wind Ensemble. I began tutoring students in high school prepare for the TAKS exam. This sparked my interest in the teaching field, and I ended up taking part in the inaugural SMU Eagle Scholars program during the summer of 2008. I taught everything from music to algebra."

"What started as a part-time job quickly evolved into a passion. I love helping students achieve their goals, no matter how high they set them. I pride myself on a personal approach to tutoring.

" I have a BS in Elementary Education with a minor in Special Education and a Masters of Education-Reading Specialist. I have also taken the Texas Master Reading Teacher test to become a MRT. I enjoy working with children in the areas of reading and language arts. My students were always successful with the state tests and I have recently had emails from two former students that told me that are working towards their teaching degrees because of my influence. To me, that is the ultimate compliment! I am always seeking new ways to teach and motivate students addressing various learning styles." ...

"Tutoring students has become such a rewarding job opportunity that I continue to seek tutoring opportunities wherever I can. I’ve enjoyed tutoring Plano students at Renner Middle School, Schimelpfenig Middle School, Clark High School, and Plano East Senior High School. I teach middle school math (including Algebra) and sciences, as well as physics and a variety of high school and college math material (see my subjects list for more). Every student is different.

" What began as a mere whim blossomed into a wonderful tutoring career lasting three brief but treasured years. I loved coming to work for the first time in my life! I enjoyed the interactions with the students I helped. Working alongside and helping other diligent students really inspired me to work harder towards my biology degree and chemistry minor. When I’m not tutoring or studying I enjoy indulging in one of my many hobbies."

"I was civil engineer for a little over ten years before deciding to go in a different direction. For the past two years I have been taking the core science classes required for medical school and have really enjoyed my time back in the classroom. Having been a civil engineer, it should be no surprise that I have a strong math and science background. I compare math with cooking in the sense that I think many more people can be successful with math, it's just that it can be intimidating at first."

"As a senior in high school I worked for a year as a paid tutor through Kumon Learning Centers with kids from ages 3 to seventeen. I enjoyed tutoring so much that when I began attending school in Dallas, I sought out more opportunities involving tutoring. In addition to my position with Varsity Tutors, in my free time I also tutor graduate students in ESL and work with elementary students on basic reading skills and homework help. I am the most valuable when it comes to tutoring English. My high SAT scores indicate that I have an understanding of the more technical aspects of English such as grammar and vocabulary." ...

"One of the subjects I studied there was the education system, and most of all, how children are falling behind in math. This really motivated me to look into this field more and do what I can to help our children do better. I'm determined to see the education level of this country rise. As a dancer, I was often put in charge of younger kids and helped them learn routines, especially ones that were struggling. I had a knack for helping kids remember their moves through catchphrases and alternate explanations of how the movement was supposed to work." ...
