Richard ...avoid taking some classes. The look on a student's face when he understands a concept is priceless. The power a student feels when she is able to understand and solve problems is unlimited. I believe that people learn best when they can connect the material they are trying to learn, to something they already know. I try to help students make those connections. When I am not working, I enjoy Astronomy and have started participating...

From becoming the first person in my family to receive a college diploma, to making sure my younger siblings always got their homework done, school work was paramount. Growing up, I regularly proofread, edited, double-checked, as well as provided any other general assistance that my brothers and sisters needed with their school work. Since we are all at different stages of...

Tyler My true passion for education stems from the continuing divide I see in our current education system. As an intern in the New York City Teaching Fellows program, I worked with underserved students in the Bronx. In the summer...... My teaching philosophy is to always teach qualitative before quantitative in math and science. In other words, I believe that understanding the concepts behind equations and ESPECIALLY shortcuts is essential to fully grasping a concept in order to move to the next level within that subject area. Once a shortcut is taught, there should always be an assessment that requires the student to demonstrate the appropriate conceptual understanding of the problem separate from solving problems using the shortcut. If the conceptual understanding is missed, it should put a hard STOP on moving on, even if it was only a portion of the concept that was erroneously demonstrated. The process can be quick using a simple correction technique and requiring the student to explain where their mistake originated. Gauging conceptual misunderstandings cumulatively over time can provide valuable information regarding each student's process of conceptualizing regarding strengths and weaknesses. Finally, it is essential for my understanding of a concept to be thorough enough to explain the same concept using at least three examples.

Ryan ...to see problems through the eyes of the student, to challenge myself to widen my own perspective, and to innovate methods in explaining complex concepts. My goal for each tutoring session is to truly dialogue with the student and encourage him/her to discuss the underlying principles behind each lesson, not just listen to a lecture. I have attended informational sessions and all-day campus visits. I have stressed over application deadlines and scrutinized single sentences in...
