"I've always been passionate about learning, and I love to share that passion with others through teaching. I have a year worth of tutoring experience at the undergraduate level, and a year and a half worth of experience working with undergraduates in the classroom as a teaching assistant. I excelled academically in high school and college, but I believe the true test of knowledge is to be able to teach it so that anyone can understand it. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to expand your academic knowledge and confidence!." ...

" I am generally laid back in my approach to teaching and strongly believe that EVERYONE can succeed in math and science. The nice thing about these subjects is that there is a right answer and there is always a way to get to it. About my style…I love when students have questions. It will help me to help you. I remember hating when my teachers didn’t take the time in class to explain the answers to my questions and I promise that whether you want the long or short answer I will give it to you or research it until I can."

"After completing two years in a doctoral program in clinical psychology I came to the realization that I did not want to be a clinical psychologist. I feel teaching will be a more fulfilling career for me; I am planning to be a high school/middle school math teacher. During high school, I tutored Latin and have tutored Math during high school and college. The best tutors tailor their lessons to the learning styles of their students. I enjoy finding accessible and creative approaches to simplify complex concepts for my students."

"Before that, I was a teaching assistant in college for two years. While I love the classroom, my biggest strength as a teacher was in my ability to connect with my students, particularly in individual meetings. I informally tutored many of my own students in Physics, as well as other subjects they needed help with. I also helped students that weren't in my class as I received a reputation as knowledgeable and eager to help."

"I am currently enrolled in the Reading Specialist Certification program at La Salle University. I do not believe that there is such a thing as an "average" student. I believe that each student is unique; no two students learn in exactly the same way. When the goal is common, deep understanding of the same material by all students in a classroom, it is imperative that the individual needs and abilities of each student are addressed to the best of the teacher's ability. For this reason, I believe that the most effective way for students to learn is individually with an experienced facilitator or in small groups with others who share ...
