"I have also found this to be fun, helping to maintain the attention of the student in the subject. I am a very energetic and passionate person, who believes that learning doesn't have to be boring. I like to make my tutoring sessions fun so that the student truly becomes interested in the subject and the information sticks in their head, rather than just being a thing that they are forced to do. Since little I aways had a huge passion for the anatomy and physiology of the human body, and I think that if it wasn't for the amazing teachers that I had during high school, I wouldn't have continued my career in this field. That is why I believe that teachers ...

" In my experience, the best way to teach math and science is to show students real world examples they can appreciate at any age. By the end of our tutoring sessions, I don't want my students to know rote material; I try to make sure they are able to tell me why it is important and how to teach the material right back to me. The best way to learn is through teaching, and I intend to never stop learning!."

"Having a set curriculum is helpful, but having one-on-one tutoring allows students to get individualized attention in the particular areas they need help with. My degree is in English with a concentration in writing and editing, but I am equally good with many math subjects, especially for the various standardized tests. My interests include writing, photography, travel, learning foreign languages, and learning about how language shapes the way we think. When I am not teaching, I work as a writer, editor, and photographer. In 2012 I published a book about living in Buddhist monasteries and traveling around Thailand. My next books, ...
