Carefully selected, highly-credentialed tutors in Bethesda, MD
"Louis last year, and now I'm in D.C. studying at George Washington University. I have experience working with students from elementary school through college, and I am particularly good at helping students with standardized testing (I was a National Merit Scholar in high school), essay writing, German, and teaching English as a second language. In my spare time I enjoy running, playing my guitar badly, and cooking. I believe that if my lessons or tutoring sessions are leaving students bored, and if my students aren't realizing their potential, then I am doing something wrong.." ...

" If working on a school or college subject, I will supplement the students' own classroom texts with outside resources such as my own texts, multimedia tools if necessary, and manipulatives to visually explain concepts. These guidelines are also followed for test preparation. I find test anxiety to be a cause for concern for many students and parents, so I like to go over simple breathing and other techniques to combat stress. My past tutoring and teaching experiences include working with elementary-age students in reading, math, and literature arts. I also have experience teaching the Spanish language to children and adults of ...

"I continued at CMU to do a Masters in Biomedical Engineering. While at CMU I served as a Teaching Assistant for 7 semesters, gaining an unparalleled level of experience. My students ranged from those who had a full grasp of the material to those who had never seen the material before. At this point I believe I have seen every kind of student and worked with every type of difficulty in terms of learning the material. Whether it be that the material is confusing, there are too many questions in a given amount of time, or the student simply isn't interested and therefore isn't reaching their potential; There is always a method to increase ...

" I discovered my love for biology in Singapore and loved exploring the rainforest, learning the anatomy of the squid and the frog, and learning about cells when I was only 11. Since then, I have continued to love learning about all subjects, and am graduating with my MD from Hopkins in May to continue my career path of lifelong learning. I will be starting my residency in radiology in July. My love of learning extends to other areas of my life, too.
