"I mainly tutor math, but have helped people with science and history as well. I prefer to teach in a one on one environment because it helps to focus in on the needs of the student and shows huge improvement over standard classroom teaching. I am currently a math major at the University of Houston. I am in my third year of school, and plan to go to graduate school to pursue a PhD in Math."

" I am not a native speaker, but I have always excelled in my Spanish courses, particularly with grammar. Growing up, I often tutored my peers in math and science and in high school, I tutored alot of Spanish. I even tutored some native speakers who needed help with grammar, particularly verb conjugations. I have always been fascinated by language and hope to be able to pass that love on to the students I tutor!."

"I have been in Houston for most of my life, attending St. Agnes Academy here in town and getting my bachelor's in Chemistry and Spanish at the University of Houston. During my graduate studies, I loved working as a chemistry TA at Rice and made the move to become an educator soon after. I have experience in tutoring all ages and backgrounds, so I’m not afraid to try new ways of explaining things."

"After finishing three years in the program I currently have two more left and really look forward to reaching my goal. As far as tutoring is concerned, I have taught for a number of years and through the process have come to recognize a few key principles to learning. I understand that a lot of students have various difficulties in school, but most of them boil down to a small number of causes which are completely fixable. The two which I try to isolate in my tutoring sessions are the fact that Math and Economics seem COMPLICATED and BORING to students. Math is complex and overwhelms a number of students. Many students get a problem incorrect ...

" I'm a little unusual because after graduating from Dartmouth College with a B.A. in History (concentration in European History), I spent two years doing a Post-Bacc in Biology at the University of Houston. However, I think that my experience in two vastly different fields is a positive because it makes me better able to tutor a wide variety of subjects. In my free time, I love reading, cooking (I’m currently working on the perfect chocolate soufflé), yoga, and traveling (Costa Rica and Amsterdam are the plan for this summer). I have been tutoring since 2002 and my experience encompasses a wide range of clients, from middle-school ...

"What I loved most about my experience at U of H was the diverse student body and the amount of cultural and language-learning opportunities that were offered there. Due to these advantages, my love for language really flourished, as I choose a double major in French and Spanish, took a year of Vietnamese, and a semester of Turkish. I have always been fascinated by the amazing differences in languages all over the world and I believe it's truly a gift to not only speak with someone from another part of the world but to truly connect with them in their native tongue. I love the quote, "If you say you can't do something, chances are you can't." I truly ...

"I am now applying to graduate school, taking prerequisite science coursework, and am excited to get back into tutoring! While I studied musicology in undergrad, I am also currently preparing for the MCAT and GRE, and thus am willing and able to tutor in both the science and music realms. In the past when I tutored elementary school students, my style tended to be one of encouragement. My primary goal is to nurture a sense of accomplishment and pride in the student, so that they may eventually find themselves engrossed in their studies with little to no need for a tutor. In essence, I try to impart my own passion for learning on the student." ...

" My wife and I have been married for 22 years, teaching our children since they were babies and providing their formal education for more than 15 years. Math is my subject of choice for all our "students", although my extensive professional writing experience has aided me to instruct them in literary and speech writing. That education has benefited them in more than six years of competition in home school speech, drama, and debate (NCFCA). I also enjoy history, geography, political science, and some sciences. I have worked as a journalist, public relations specialist, and technical writer in my professional career. I enjoy basketball, ...
