Jared ...contemporary Brazilian poetry but also having done graduate work in Spanish. After finishing at Harvard, I moved back to the Valley of the Sun to be with my family and started work on a M.S. in Psychology with a focus on Psychology and Law. My current academic interest is how non-native English speakers interact with the justice system here in AZ. Law school is in my future—more than likely—but I’m enjoying my time at home...

Karann ...sciences. Within biology, I concentrated in computational biology with an additionally strong focus in ecology and ecological applications of computation, because of my personal career ambitions. I intend to study large carnivores, especially tigers, with a heavy focus on mathematical and modeling approaches. To this end, I am beginning my doctorate in Environment and Resources at Wisconsin-Madison this fall, studying large carnivores with Bayesian modeling techniques. My tutoring strategy is to tackle topics of highest...

Hailey ...Health. Currently, I study the immunogenetics of non-human primates. In my collegiate career, I worked with struggling elementary students on their reading comprehension, taught a summer science program at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, and volunteered with an after-school engineering club at the Goodman Center. I also held the position of Resident Assistant for two years with University Housing, where I served as an academic and mental health resource for seventy-eight first year students. I...

Debo I have extensive tutoring experience in math, physics, chemistry and engineering subjects. I really enjoy tutoring and like the interaction with students. ... Teaching is a way to share knowledge and improve your own learning.... By helping them understand the core concepts. Focus on understanding the problem itself rather than the solution.... By praising them on their successes, pointing out places for improvement and making learning a fun process.... I will try to illustrate the skill or concept with different examples that the student can relate to.

Ari ...laude. Additionally, I am poised to graduate from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee in May with a B.S. in Cell and Molecular Biology, summa cum laude. I like to consider myself a "whole-brained" scholar, and am equally happy to tutor in math/science or the humanities. I have taken both the GRE and the MCAT, and scored at or above the 95th percentile on both; I therefore have an extensive understanding of how to prepare...

Aaron I connect with people best through sharing ideas. The majority of my spare time is spent trying to simplify or find alternate proofs of basic theorems to make them more intuitive.... Focusing on beauty solves many problems a teacher faces. If I am attending a lecture about The Great Gatsby, I will be eager if the speaker tells of the beauty she sees, rather than a quick and dirty type of analysis. I regularly talk to people who admit math wasn't their favorite subject in school. Some were self-conscious. Some had gaps they never filled. Some just didn't care. Whatever the case, I admit to them that math is my favorite art form with as much room for expression as sculpting or jazz. I claim that mathematicians are half artists, half observers of fine art. My conversants often tell me it is an epiphany for them to think of math as such, and that it helps heal their math wound. A marvelous way I have found to unveil beauty in the classroom is by using surprise. I like to present ideas from a simple perspective, discuss them briefly, then release a theorem. Thales' theorem (the diameter of a circle subtends a right angle to any point on the circumference) is a great example, especially with the aid of Java applets. After playing a bit with triangles by moving points around in a worksheet, it's surprising to be able to connect two structures as basic as a right triangle and a diameter. Next in importance to marveling at beauty, I want students to learn to think critically to solve problems. Understandably, some students have never had guidance past high school drills. All the more, problem solving should be emphasized and revisited throughout college curriculum. I have many years of experience in problem solving competitions and a collection of principles regarding problem solving that I like to follow. One is about inverse problems. Consider the following: if baseball cards are five cents apiece and shipping costs fifty cents, how many cards will one dollar buy? After making the arithmetic clear, students had better know how to calculate the forward problem, i.e. "How much will x number of cards cost?" I'm depending on them knowing the forward problem because we covered it last week, but it is important to bring it out in more than just a mention so the students have a comfortable base to start. It's like revisiting rational numbers before diving into irrationals. They are intrinsically tied, and it gives the class confidence to start with old material.

Tammi ...Edgewood College and Palmer College of Chiropractic. I love to play soccer, run and watch almost any sport. When not working I can often be found watching sports or playing soccer. While working with students my goal is to help them reach the goals they have set for themselves. I help them achieve these goals by tailoring my teaching/tutoring styles to best fit their learning style. Everyone learns and retains information differently and I strive...

Adam ...I was an arithmetic and algebra tutor for underprivileged kids; in college, I volunteered in the math and writing centers; now, I'm teach ethics and logic classes in the philosophy department at UW-Madison. Teaching is the most important part of my life, and my role as an educator is what most defines my identity. I have no general guiding principle about teaching, other than that it isn't really useful to think in terms of such...
