...material. I tutor a large variety of subjects, including LSAT, SAT, and ACT. I also tutor various academic subjects, primarily in the fields of math and science. My favorite subject to tutor is Chemistry, followed closely by Physics. I feel that anyone can learn anything as long as it is explained in a way that is conducive to them, and I aim to achieve that in my teaching. Outside of tutoring, I enjoy ultimate frisbee,...
...school work. I believe that for a student to have an effective learning experience, the tutor must not only be passionate about teaching, but also about learning. As a passionate learner, I try to interpret the world around me, be that math, science, or why my garden behaves differently in Colorado than my family's in Nebraska. Early on in life, I loved numbers, patterns, and the problem solving nature of my parents' careers. This led...

I have been tutoring for six years, predominately working with high school students, and have completed over 300 hours of volunteer tutoring. I am very passionate about learning (some may say that I am a nerd!) and strongly believe in learning because one genuinely desires to become knowledgable in the subject, rather than studying to master an exam. It...

...more fun once you get it. To me, chemistry is the perfect blend of science and math, which is great since I enjoy both! You can learn from the most basic atoms (don't trust them, they make up everything!) to the most complex proteins to applications in the real world. Chemistry is fun to learn, teach, and experience, so I try to make those random concepts as interesting and applicable as possible.

...time working to teach clients new skills and improve their lives. My most fulfilling moments are when a student is finally able to independently complete a task they weren't able to before. This comes through in my tutoring. I utilize BST (behavior skills training) and a variety of best teaching practices from the field of ABA to help my students quickly master subjects to fluency. I am positive, I am patient, and I am skilled...
...my job very rewarding because working with them to find the approach that best caters to their needs feels awesome. As a tutor, I always ensure that my students have a good qualitative understanding of the subjects they are struggling in before helping them with quantitative problems.

...while I was a student at Columbia University in New York. While there, I had the opportunity to teach students of all backgrounds and levels of ability. My unique approach to SAT and ACT test-prep focuses just as much on "learning the test" as it does learning the material, which gives students a sense of confidence and courage on test day. My expertise in "big test" prep translates to the regular school environment as well,...

...as time goes by. I think the best way to tutor is to find the root of the issue whether it???s time management, difficulty in understanding the material, or difficulty in applying the material; and then using different strategies to really address that issue in a collaborative manner in order to really help the student improve. As someone currently in graduate school, I have seen my peers struggle with subjects and struggled myself. Through this...

9th Grade Tutoring FAQ
Ninth grade marks one of the greatest periods of transition in a student's academic career. Entering high school not only means a different school and class schedule, but new teaching styles, larger class sizes, and more difficult curricula. The subject matter taught in high school serves one or both of two main purposes: to prepare students for college and/ or to prepare them for careers after graduation. This goal-oriented approach often leaves little room for personalized attention and development in the classroom, and with large class sizes, receiving individual assistance from a teacher can seem impossible. A private tutor can make a big difference in this regard because they can give your child the type of individual attention they may need. Whether they are struggling with a course or ahead of their classmates, Varsity Tutors can connect you with a private tutor who can work with your child at a pace that works best for them.
The grades and academic experiences students gain during this year can set the tone for their remaining years of secondary education, as well as shape their interests toward future studies and careers. If you are concerned that your student is not receiving the help that he or she needs in the classroom, Varsity Tutors can help you connect with a ninth grade tutor who can help. Tutors work to collaborate with both parents and students to develop personalized lesson plans that target areas of difficulty, while maintaining student interest and engagement in subject matter. The impersonal classroom environment of high school courses can stifle student interest and leave ninth graders feeling lost in the world of academia. Let a tutor help your child through this period of transition and keep him or her fascinated with the world of learning, fostering an interest in continued education.
Varsity Tutors can help you connect with tutors who have experience in all realms of subject matter. Ninth graders are often expected to complete coursework in algebra, biology, history, English, and multiple electives. With the plethora of content that they are expected to master, it is not uncommon for students to excel in some areas, but fall behind in others. When you contact Varsity Tutors, we begin developing a profile of your child's unique academic preferences. We use this profile to help you select the tutors best suited to your child's skill set, taking into account his or her learning style, academic strengths and weaknesses, areas of interest, and even extracurricular activities.
The highly skilled and experienced tutor responsible for your child's ninth grade tutoring can plan sessions that aim to boost his or her academic weak points and build continued interest in the field your child wishes to pursue in the future. Your tutor can emphasize the interconnectedness of the fields your child is studying, demonstrating the necessity of English mastery in the sciences or the way that math applies to music theory in order to foster his or her growing awareness of practical applications for academic principles.
Private tutoring allows your child to receive a unique perspective and insight about the material presented in his or her classes that can help improve grades or test scores, as well as make learning more intuitive. If you are interested in the personal benefits afforded by private tutoring, contact Varsity Tutors today and let us help you connect with a tutor in your area.
Varsity Tutors' live learning platform enables you and your child to meet a private tutor either in person or face-to-face online. This allows for a large amount of flexibility because it allows you and your child to pick the times and locations that work best for you and your child. If he or she would prefer to study outdoors, at home, or in a library or other public setting, their private tutor can be there to help.

Recent 9th Grade Tutoring Session Notes
Today, I began working with the student on the class materials she expect to tackle this fall: Physics and Algebra I. We spent most of the time doing an overview of the topics she will be learning about in Physics class, and discussing practical issues, such as how to do lab work properly. I also began discussing quadratic equations with her, as those are new to her, and she will be working with them in the upcoming year.
Grammar diagnostic (he says he's less adept in grammar), looks about on level at sentence diagramming, although we could use some work on complex sentence structures. Discussed the book we're reading and we're looking for ways to improve our reading speed.
In this session, I worked for an hour with the student and we reviewed some biology and algebra concepts since he will begin school on Monday. I spent a half an hour with his sister, we reviewed area of rectangles and parallelograms as well as volume of cubes and rectangular prisms.
I met with the students for tutoring. For the first student, I assisted him with his Spanish homework. For the second student, I helped her with the English homework as she had to research the book that she will be quiz on. Both students were engaging and followed directions.
The student and I spent some time getting re-acquainted with each other, since we hadn't seen each other for several months. We went over his new (high school!) classes, including the kinds of organizational tricks his teachers have taught him so far. We spent most of the time working on The Most Dangerous Game in his reader, going over his responses to the workbook questions while delving more deeply into the material.
