"The picture is made up of pieces, each of which you’ll know so well that if I take the picture apart you can put it back together again and explain to anyone why they belong together in that order. Starting in high school to the present I’ve had the opportunity to help students in many subjects, and we’ve succeeded in mastering the material because we first focused on how we approached the subject; our approach will be based on your learning style. Once we’ve established a foundation based on my understanding of your learning style and your understanding of the subject matter, we can start asking the ‘whys’ and that’s when the fun begins. I look ...

" I also worked for Mad Science for a couple of years, where I taught fun, hands-on science lessons to elementary and middle school students. During my graduate program I worked part-time for UCLA Bruincorps, where I tutored middle school students in math and mentored a team of undergraduate tutors. For the past year I worked in an affordable housing community where I ran an after school program for students of all ages. This often included helping students with their homework and tutoring them when they did not understand the concepts they were learning." ...

"I like to draw, I like figuring out puzzles, I like to flip problems upside down (usually not literally) to solve them and explain to others how to reached the end. I am a recent UCSD graduate with a passion for learning and a drive to help others. Consequently, I’ve worked in education most of my life and aspire to become a medically/educationally transparent pediatrician. I feel all knowledge is accessible to anyone who wants it, so if you ask me, I’ll teach you anything I know how. If there’s ever a concept I come across that I don’t know, I’ll have fun working it through with you any way possible." ...

" If they can’t relate to the instructor, success will be difficult. That is why my experience working with kids in educational and youth sports settings is so valuable. Just as with sports, the fundamentals are critical for success but the student will quickly lose interest if the tutor does not keep the material interesting and yes, fun! Be disciplined but not too serious and take time to laugh but don’t get off track. This is the basis on which my tutoring philosophy is built. A bit about myself…I have been happily married for 15 years with one son in middle school and a second boy in elementary school." ...

"Having scored in the top 10 percentile for both the physical sciences and biological sciences sections, I have decided to tutor these subjects before I begin applying to medical school. A California native, I became fed up with the New England weather at Brown (though Providence, RI is a very charming city indeed), and headed back West to San Diego, where I have been residing by the beach for the past few months. I like to surf, and play music and basketball in my free time. In addition to Physics, Biology, and Chemistry, I tutor any math subject from arithmetic through Calculus 2, and have been doing so since I was a freshman in college. Past ...

" I first started teaching when I worked as a camp counselor in Julian, CA, educating kids from 8-16 about gardening and organic farming – this was the first time I had ever been in a teaching position, and I loved seeing the enthusiasm of my campers grow each week. I have since become an academic tutor at the USD Writing Center, helping undergraduate and graduate students develop their reading and writing skills. Students that I have tutored have come in with a variety of requests, including help with brainstorming and analyzing assigned texts for class, working on formal academic writing, constructing an argument, use of MLA or AP styles, ...

"Thinking critically and solving problems is a skill and it needs to be fostered like any other. Our brains process information in many different ways, so I like to use a combintation of real-world examples as well as the text book variety. All we need to do is find out how to make the concepts "click" for you, then I will help you develop the long-term knowledge by instilling good habit patterns of studying and practice."
