Michael ...have helpful tips and advice so you can get the grade you deserve! Besides tutoring, I'm a pretty big nerd with a passion for the arts. Literature, film, music, ballet, video games, I love 'em all, and I love a good conversation. I have a particular passion for designing and programming video games, and my friend and I own an independent video game studio that we're trying to get off the ground.... My teaching philosophy is to strike a balance between a student's short-term and long-term needs. I feel it's crucial to build comprehensive knowledge of a subject one step at a time, with no holes or shortcuts, to ensure conceptual *and* practical mastery. However, I also understand the pressures of the modern educational system, so if a student has, say, a test in 24 hours, then I will *not* strictly adhere to my normal methods at the expense of their grade! I will help drill only the concepts they need to succeed on that test, and then after the test is over go back to more long-term-style teaching.

Matthew ...professor of philosophy. My academic interests range from medieval Scholasticism to contemporary issues in bioethics and law. I believe that tutoring is not only about the transfer of knowledge between the tutor and the student, but also a transfer of skills, which would help the student learn how to find the answer himself or herself and to solve whatever academic problems come his or her way. Equally, important is demonstrating the real-world application of what...
