Joyce "I'm a senior at Penn who has been tutoring for 5+ years. I love meeting new students and trying my best to solve not only student's current academic and personal goals, but I also try to help them build the skills they need to succeed in the future. I believe everyone has the ability to learn anything they want; the key is practice and hard work..."
Emily "... I taught high school chemistry and general science, running labs, lessons, and anything else that was required. While doing that, I started teaching LSAT classes after work. Now, I'm a full time tutor, devoted to helping students score higher on tests and do better in classes. Because I've been a science teacher, I know how they think, why they do certain labs, and what they're likely to ask in tests..."
Donnell "... I possess an extensive history of hands-on experience in these fields ranging from internships, academic research opportunities and professional development teams that gives me greater context in understanding applicability of these concepts.

My focus is to motivate my students to develop mindsets that are not afraid to take on any academic challenge..."
Molly "...In both subjects I have taught writing, reading comprehension, test prep, vocabulary, grammar and conversation. I took the AP Spanish test and the SAT Subject test in Spanish and feel well-prepared to tutor for these specific exams. One of the most difficult things about learning a language is being afraid to make mistakes, and for that reason, I work hard to create a relaxed learning environment..."

Katherine "... I am an Executive Board Member of one of the largest community service groups on campus, the West Philadelphia Tutoring Project, so I have had plenty of experience tutoring elementary and middle school students in reading and math in the Philadelphia area. Prior to my experience tutoring in Philadelphia, I ran an online writing program teaching essential writing skills to elementary school students and served as an Algebra I instructor at a local community center. I enjoy tutoring math up to Algebra 2, SAT Math, and editing essays (including college essays) because helping students build math foundations that will help them for the rest of their life is rewarding and I greatly enjoy editing essays! I have a very flexible tutoring style - I am approachable and willing to answer any questions related to the material..."
David "... I then continued my passion for teaching throughout college as I taught classmates as well as students of under-served populations in Baltimore city. Following college, I spent a year teaching high school students of various ages in Philadelphia. Since then, I have worked at the University of Pennsylvania researching traumatic brain injury..."
Evan "...This is also why, when it comes to tutoring mathematics, I typically work with a student to see how they perceive a problem. To me this is way more important than simply instructing the student in the one way a tutor might know how to go about solving a problem. By taking into account the student's capabilities and understanding of a problem, I can better cater to their strengths and work with those to find a way to analyze and undertake a problem. While tutoring at college,I had a lot of success with this strategy..."
