"I was a voracious reader by age nine. As an adult, I am a grammar fiend and a talented writer. Teaching people to read and write is one of my favorite activities. I have taught or tutored in many different arenas, from high school teaching and tutoring to legal intern and lawyer training, and from summer camps and after-school programs to caring for my elementary-and-toddler-aged nieces and nephew. Currently, I teach high school math, science, English, social studies, and theater arts when those classroom teachers aren't available." ...

"I am getting ready to finish my third year as a 5th grade teacher here in Austin. Before I became a teacher I studied journalism and Spanish at Texas State University. I paid many of my bills working as a Writing and Spanish tutor, and I enjoyed it immensely. I really believe students who struggle with a subject or want to improve their skills learn best when they can sit down with their teacher in a small group or one-on-one and learn at their own pace."

"I have a passion for math and science and I love sharing that passion with others. Helping others understand these subjects is so fulfilling. My favorite part of teaching is seeing students finally start to understand a concept and watching their agitation fade and turn into relief and eventually curiosity with the material. I spent two years of my undergrad at the Math Department tutoring center where I tutored subjects ranging from Elementary Algebra to Multivariable Calculus. In graduate school I was a teaching assistant for an introductory Physics class for one semester." ...

"Learning has always been a passion of mine, and I strive to impart that passion to my students. I don't train my students to recite facts and figures. Rather, I encourage them to become self-motivated learners by creating a positive experience that is tailored to each individual. My lesson plans are thus very flexible, and designed with the likes and interests of the student in mind."

"I am a recent graduate of Concordia University where I received my Masters of Education, Curriculum and Instruction degree. I have a multiple subject clear credential from California State University, Los Angeles, and have been teaching middle school math and science for 6 years. I enjoy teaching because it is the best feeling in the world when you finally see the students “get” what has been taught. I teach from a student driven point, meaning the students have to find the answer and can’t get away with “I don’t know." I also make sure the student has ways to remember what was taught using pneumonics." ...

"Hello! I graduated in May of 2012 from Arizona State University with a degree in Global Health and a minor in Sustainability, and I will be attending Dartmouth's Geisel School of Medicine beginning this fall. I came from Idaho to study at ASU because of the Global Health program and a scholarship offer, and decided to stay this year while I apply to medical school. I stayed busy throughout college and took advantage of every opportunity I could. I worked at Arizona Neurology and Dystonia Institute, which initially sparked my interest in working with students because I saw how challenging learning can be without the right tools." ...
