"When I enrolled at the University of Virginia, I began volunteering in local elementary school classrooms and after school programs. Discovering a love of sharing the joy of learning with students, I added some classes from the Curry School of Education to my course load. I took classes on technology in the classroom, curriculum development, and teaching theory among others and used the skills I learned here to teach in summer and Saturday enrichment programs. I recently moved to Los Angeles and found myself missing the interaction I had with the students I knew while attending UVA, and I am so excited to meet my future pupils! Nothing can ...

" 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. The spare time that I do have allows me to relax by making a quilt or going to the field to play some paintball. On the weekends, you can typically find me at Disneyland or out riding my bike."

"While I was there, I taught at a school that specialized in English, and I had plenty of time to absorb the culture. I got my first tutoring job about ten years ag, when a friend asked me to tutor her son in English and algebra. I enjoyed it so much that I took on several more students, helping them with homework and general study habits. From there, I did my two semesters in Japan, and when I got back I taught at USC's writing center, helping people with their writing and grammar. While English and writing are my favorite subjects to tutor, I am comfortable with most subjects up to high school level. I believe the tutor/student relationship is very ...

"in Chemistry with a focus in Chemical Science. My senior research was in chemical education, where we helped local high schools improve their methods for teaching Stoichiometry. By using a method called Ratios and Proportions, I've helped many students in many grades understand and pass general and AP chemistry. Chemistry is also closely related to math, so I've tutored students with the math required to be successful in chemistry."

"I have spent my last two years of school in Paris, where I went to study abroad for my junior year and ended up staying for another 4 ½ years. (C'est comme ça, ne c'est pas?) In Paris, I worked as a French and English tutor, sharing my love for language, literature, culture and grammar with all of my students. I worked in French public schools as well as private institutions, and taught students aged 7-70. Now in my home state of California, I have continued to tutor, helping students to improve their SAT II scores, prepare for exams in school, and work on college essays and school assignments." ...

After growing up on the east coast in South Florida, then attending college in the Midwest, I've finally made it all the way to the west coast and am a recent transplant to Los Angeles.

I helped her with everything from fractions, to AP homework, to college applications and essays."

" While a student at UCSB, I became deeply involved with life on campus and developed a love of teaching, mentoring, and inspiring other students to use their skills to improve the campus community. I developed and taught an environmental education curriculum for third graders at a local elementary school, and won awards for sustainability communication projects, culminating in the Outstanding Service Award from the Environmental Studies program upon graduation.
