Daniel ...receiving my Bachelor of Science degree next year. I have helped many of my colleagues pass their classes and understand concepts in subjects they have trouble with. I also have great experience helping students much younger than myself, from elementary school through high school. My favorite subject to tutor is calculus, I believe the concepts of calculus are much simpler than most instructors make them out to be and that most problems in understanding them...

Michael ...and scientific interests lie in metabolic engineering, cell biology, and bioinformatics. I began my tutoring career in high school as a peer tutor, where I spent my free study periods in departmental offices offering academic support on a drop-in basis. In college I also enjoyed tutoring my friends when they wanted some extra academic support. My passion is for mathematics and the sciences: as an engineer I have a deep appreciation for how theory in...

Leah ...enjoying and succeeding in it. I want to help others make that same transition--a bad teacher or tough class can crush a student's innate curiosity, but a good tutor can restore it. I currently tutor students in the social and biological sciences (elementary school through college level), reading and writing, and in standardized test preparation. I am also an avid debater, and coach debate at a high school in Providence, RI. When I am not...

Matthew ...from the University of Massachusetts. During my studies, I spent a year tutoring student-athletes in Chemistry, Physics, Math and Engineering. Earlier in my schooling, I spent two years as a camp counselor and a year regularly babysitting, so mentoring has always been a part of my life. I also have experience as a part of the Best Buddies organization during high school, and so I have some experience with special needs students as well.

Emily ...from Yale last year with a B.S. in psychology. As a student I worked as an undergraduate research assistant in a cognitive neuroscience lab, studied in Paris, debated with the Yale Political Union, and took part in numerous off-campus mentoring and counseling activities. In many ways I am still a student, always trying to grow as a person and in my profession. My favorite subject to teach is math, because there are often many different...

Diana ...of college, I began tutoring elementary, middle and high school students in all their subjects but focused strongly on math and science courses. I understand that these subjects can be challenging for most students but once students are able to work through the challenges, with the correct guidance of an educator, they are able to enjoy these subjects. My teaching style heavily depends on my students’ learning style. I believe each student is different and...

I tutor a diverse range of subjects, but I am most passionate about math, English, writing, and standardized tests. I have seen remarkable growth in students struggling with understanding math, or improving their test scores—and I know this success is possible, because I was once that struggling student in algebra, calculus, and while studying for the ACT. I am a strong...

Steven ...calculus) and three years of tutoring experience (SAT and GRE subject tests, as well as high school algebra and geometry), I have developed a unique style that leaves my students from a variety of backgrounds and abilities not only as vastly improved problem solvers, intuitive reasoners, and logical thinkers,but also with a deep appreciation for math's deep beauty and significance. Outside of teaching I love hiking, running, and listening to music of all types.... I love teaching math and seeing my students thrive -- in their problem solving and logical reasoning, and especially when they understand "what's really going on". To achieve this, I believe in a careful and patient approach that begins with simple examples that emphasize the intuition behind mathematical ideas, so that students have a solid foundation from which further depth and harder examples naturally follow.
