"I have extensive experience tutoring and working with youth in general. I have tutored fourth- and fifth-graders in math and peer-edited countless peers' college essays; I have directed youth sports camps and provided support to severely emotionally disturbed high-schoolers. It may sound trite, but I deeply enjoy the intellectual and interpersonal challenge of the teaching experience. While I expect hard work from a student, I am patient above all and listen before I lecture."

"(that's where Timbuctu is....yes, it's a real place!) I love both subjects and have a variety of experiences teaching and doing both. In Math, I have taught through elementary-level through Algebra 2 and Geometry. In music, I have taught K-12, directed an adult community choir, taught private lessons in voice and piano to students ages 5-40, and sung solo in a jazz band, musicals, and classical concerts. Teaching, whether it be math or music, is something I love doing, especially in a one-on-one environment where students have the opportunity to ask questions and explore and discover without some of the pressure or neglect that can ...

"I've always made time to teach others, whether through informal teaching sessions with underclassmen or formal lectures on anatomy and physiology. I've performed well on multiple standardized tests, including the MCAT and USMLE Step 1 and 2ck, and I would like to share my strategies to help more students succeed. I believe that hard work and determination can lead to great outcomes, but some students also need to learn how to study. Many test-takers get bogged down in the details and try to memorize every little factoid, making complex subjects unmanageable." ...

"I love to promote science literacy. I believe that science and the maths are vital componants that make our world function. I want to help every student realize how important the sciences and math are, while instilling in them how interesting and fun they can be. I have found that students have a hard time relating to science and math concepts and that is why I like to incorporate everyday situations and objects into my lessons to help students better understand the different concepts."

"I then continued on to Syracuse University where I completed my Master's in international relations.

"I've found that this demeanor is great for teaching. By combining it with a sense of humor, my students are able to grasp what's so great about words: they're the backbone of stories.

This leads to not only short-term perks like better grades and increased test comprehension, but long-term perks such as complete confidence in an increasingly digital world.

" I've been working with children since I taught Sunday school in High School. I continued at college by volunteering during homework time at a local homeless shelter and working at the college writing center. After graduation, as jobs and family commitments allowed, I continued to volunteer, again at a homeless shelter through a Chicago Public School program. Currently, I work with the wonderful children Varsity finds for me, devoting my energy and imagination to making their learning as productive as possible.."
