Christina "...I have enjoyed these endeavors thoroughly as seeing people succeed academically is extremely rewarding! For this reason, I understand when learning a foreign language or even the grammar and mechanics of your own can seem a bit intimidating. Moreover, I know attempting to write a compelling essay that will capture and keep your audience's rapt attention can be just as challenging. In addition, I can appreciate that understanding the concepts and science of psychology can be daunting--this is where I can help! For example, I enjoy helping others learn the foundations of grammar, pronounce words in Spanish with ease, and structure essays that are well organized and communicate ideas clearly..."

Michael "...I received extensive training in tutoring both ACT and SAT test strategies. While I have been trained to tutor all core subjects, tutoring Mathematics has always brought me the greatest joy in life.

David "... For the past nineteen years I have actively taught and tutored students from a variety of grade levels through a wide assortment of courses, preps, and materials. Throughout this time, the one thing that has become apparent to me is that every student is capable of learning and doing well, and that there is never only one way to cover the material. As such, I work hard to find what works best for my students and reach them through their own interests and by making the subject as fun as possible..."
Khurram "... As a member of the National Honor Society, I tutored students in all high-school subjects my junior and senior year. I also tutored middle-school students in an after-school program during the spring semester of my first-year at SMU. I went on to informally teach and tutor underclassmen friends throughout my last two years at SMU in all college-level math subjects as well as statistics, accounting, and finance. I am a people person, meaning I love connecting and getting to know others..."
Meredith "... It truly generates appreciation for learning and the greater world community. My experience has taught me that, when it comes to education, learning isn’t always confined to a classroom setting. I don’t believe that superior performance on standardized tests is the most crucial part of one’s educational experience, but high scores have become increasingly important across almost all grade levels. I have been fortunate enough throughout my academic career to have had good success with standardized testing..."
Angela "... If the teacher uses the files (interests, knowledge, experience) that the student already has in the filing cabinets (brain), it is much easier to help the student learn and to develop his or her own unique learning strategies. Learning to learn is most important. Yes, we need to master the subject at hand..."

Megan "...In high school, I struggled with math and science classes and believed that I would never be good at them. After a break of several years, I'm currently in the middle of an undergraduate in Applied Mathematics. I was fortunate enough to have a paradigm shift in the way I perceived myself and the world around me and love getting to share the good news with others: people who prefer reading and making music and art can also do great in their other classes, especially when the math and science is presented the right way..."
