Robert "...I have helped students in a variety of subjects, but my favorites are Physics, Math, English, and SAT test prep. I strongly believe that every student has the capability to learn anything, as long as the teacher is willing to adapt the lesson plan appropriately. As such, I tailor my tutoring sessions to the individual student to ensure that no time is wasted..."

Zachary "My friends and I have realized something through the hours spent laboring over long homework sets and the intensive weeks crammed with studying for 16-chapter cumulative final exams: working with other people helps. An extra mind proves its usefulness when you turn to your friend and ask, "so what exactly is the 'enthalpy' of a system and what does it mean?" As your friend picks up a dry erase marker, walks over to the board and spends the next 10 minutes kneading the idea into your head you come to understand how a bit of help from another, a 'tutor,' can make a world of difference. These are the tutoring and teaching experiences I have had. I am enrolled in my final class needed to complete a BS in physics from the University Honors College at the University of Pittsburgh..."

Hillary "I have been teaching in one way or another since I was 14. I know how frustrating it can be when you feel like you just don't get it and I'm here to help! People learn in different ways, and I will take the time to figure out the way that works best for you. I am especially competent in the logic games of the LSATs, so if that's your weakness, I'm your band-aid!."
