Kimberly I am a fun-loving person. I enjoy teaching students. As a teacher, I treasure the moment when I see a student smile, because they grasped a skill or a concept. I am currently an elementary teacher. Most importantly, I want all my students to succeed in all their educational goals. Therefore, it is my desire to always be an effective teacher by addressing all of my students' educational needs.... Learning is universal. I believe that effective teaching allows one to connect to many by accepting and acknowledging different learning styles. As a teacher, my goal is to foster the will to learn. So, I believe in teaching that makes everyone excited and desire the will to learn something new, and to share it with others. Most importantly, I believe as a teacher, one must teach others to learn, as well as learn from the ones that you teach.

Nevin Industrial Engineering graduate from University of Tennessee Knoxville. Just a guy who loves solving math problems and spreading his knowledge to others. ... Each student learns best in his or her own unique way. I prefer to observe and adapt my teaching style to each student's learning style. Often teaching methods change depending on a student's level of mastery of the material. I lead by following the student.... The first session would begin with listening to the student to understand what we were trying to accomplish from the tutoring and what material we would cover. We might begin digging into the material slowly at first so I can get a feel for the student's learning style and level of mastery of the subject.

Steven I have a BBA and an MSBA in Management Information Systems from the University of Memphis, and I am a former Instructor at Southwest TN Community College. I started working at Southwest as a Math Tutor, and I've tutored elementary and high school students. I have also assisted several colleagues with standardized placement and proficiency tests and with their undergraduate and graduate courses.... I first try to figure out where each student is academically. They may not know themselves, but I make the best determination that I can with my understanding of the subject area. Next, I begin working with them to bring them up to speed with where they need to be. I explain, demonstrate, and let them practice in their coursework. I try to keep them aware of their own progress, and work with them to bring them to the point where they can master material at a sufficient pace on their own.
