"If your student needs any help in Language Arts, request me, you won't be disappointed. I've been reading ever since I started reading those little pamphlet books like "See Dick Run." I'm consistently in the middle of two or three books. I'm very interested in movies and tv shows as a medium for excellent writing.."

"I have been teaching for 5 years, and have taught students in Preschool through Middle School. I am certified as an Early Childhood and Elementary teacher, and as a Reading Specialist. The Humanities are my passion, and I like to share that passion with learners. I enjoy tutoring students because of the individualized lesson plans that I can design in the one-on-one setting that tutoring provides. I try to incorporate hands-on games and activities into my tutoring whenever appropriate, as I feel it keeps motivation levels high."

"My interest in international relations began as a young boy during the Kosovo War. Amidst the conflict’s carnage I witnessed on TV, Ambassador Richard Holbrooke and his role as peacemaker enthralled me. Since then, I have dreamt about becoming a United States diplomat. In the more immediate future, I hope to achieve a master’s degree in international relations. My studies have provided me the knowledge and skills to be a useful tutor not only in political science and international studies, but also history, English, writing, American politics and government, research, and literature." ...

" 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. I received high marks for engaging and explaining key concepts to my students." ...

" I ultimately want to become a professor and I believe my experience as a tutor will help me become the type of professor that can effectively lecture as well as personally mentor my students through their studies and research.

Each situation provided me with an opportunity to teach science and laboratory research skills to students of varying levels of experience.

"My teaching experience ranges from mentoring children ages 3-5 years old in developing their language and literacy skills, to tutoring college students who are tackling tough chemistry topics, and all ages in between. Not every student learns the same way, so I introduce material in different ways until it becomes relatable to the student. Enthusiasm and encouragement are important in order to keep students engaged and interested, and these are the tools I use to teach subjects that are often seen as difficult and frustrating to understand.." ...

"I've tutored at Penn State's Learning Center as well as students at home. My passion for education comes through in my teaching methods, as I believe that all students have the ability to learn a subject as long as it is presented to them in a way in which they are able to grasp. I use both analytical as well as graphical methods or a combination of the two as needed to cater to each student. Having both an Engineering and Architecture background, I am able to explain difficult concepts to either a left or right-brained student, verbally or with visual representations." ...
