John I think that knowledge is power and the children are our future. I once dreamt of being a high school math teacher but resigned to studying economics in lieu of this dream. I like the relative certainty of mathematics and look forward to tutoring more people. "Teach a man to fish..." I believe that if I can inspire in others, even in the smallest manner, my love for knowledge with my intuitive outlook toward problem solving, I will be satisfied. I think I have some insight into the idea behind the principle and how to explain it.

There are so many ways that it can be used and applied in business and in your personal life, but many of these opportunities are lost if one has not had the wonderful experience of studying math. I'm looking forward to working with you.

Leslie I received my undergraduate degree in Physics with a minor in Mathematics. Also, I recently graduated with my Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in Applied Physics. I love teaching and helping students grasp concepts. I believe in moving beyond rote memorization to personal mastery and ownership of one's education. I am available to tutor in SAT Math Test prep, Algebra 1-4, Pre-Calulus, and Trigonometry.... I found it most rewarding to continuously remind my students that math and science mastery is obtainable as long as they were willing to persevere and struggle through difficult concepts. I look forward to each opportunity to empower my students through tutoring. I have also taught SAT courses, so I realize the importance of student engagement and participation when teaching complex subjects. I adapt my style and teaching to each student.

JaRod I am High energy, love working with the youth. ... Introduce myself, and say a funny joke.... By allowing them to teach me, with my guidance.... By asking them to do examples through my sessions.... Switch to a different learning method, either it's on a whiteboard, or video examples.... By having them read it out loud and retell the story in their own words.... Hands on work.... By giving them the confidence that they can solve any problem by learning how to do it, vs knowing the answer.

Vera ...best ways to help students learn is to teach them how to find the information they need efficiently, rather than simply teaching them concrete information. While knowledge of the subject matter is certainly important, in order to truly grow as a learner, a student needs to have the ability to learn beyond what is written on the page in front of him or her. My Library Science degree gives me a unique knowledge base of...
