Award-Winning Tutors in Washington, DC
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..."

Melody "... I also love exploring new places, and my travels have led to a passion for photography. Some of my other favorite pastimes are reading, watching movies, and spending time with my friends. I have tutored high school students in the past, and have focused on the sciences..."

Yesenia "...I believe that time and patience is all that is needed in order to change a student's life for the better. Although I gained majority of my experience teaching children, I have also taught adults, and I have tutored college students in the subject as well. Writing in Spanish while in college always proved to be a difficult task for my peers, and I was always happy to lend a hand in order to help them further understand the language..."

I ensure that my students understand that math and science are increasingly important subjects to understand in this age of computers and technology based commerce. I am a huge sports fan (mainly football) and enjoy playing rugby..."
Alana "...I also use manipulatives and visual aids to make the abstract mathematical ideas more concrete for my students and, therefore, easier to comprehend and remember. I believe that math courses teach much more than simply how to manipulate numbers and variables; they help teach students how to think. Math teaches us how to look at a problem and determine a plan of attack..."
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!."
