"While I tutor many subjects, I am most passionate about the sciences and math, and I really love helping those that are struggling with basic concepts. I enjoy helping others understand the smaller concepts so they have a strong foundation to build upon later on. Besides schoolwork, I like to read, run, practice yoga, and spend a lot of time in the gym and at group fitness classes. I completed my first 5k in July, and I hope to work my way up to a half marathon."

" Although I have limited tutoring experience in the classroom, as a former captain of my college football team and captain of my basketball, baseball, and football teams in high school, I have spent a lot of time teaching others how to succeed both on and off the field. To excel as a student-athlete at a rigorous academic institution, I had to learn how to properly manage my time due to my hectic schedule. The time management skills, discipline, and perseverance I gained from football are abilities I tried to impart on my teammates every day to help them improve in all aspects of their lives. Since my college teammates voted me the team’s Most ...
