Vince ...physiology. I have additionally acted as a private tutor in preparing high school students for entry into the IB German SL course. I am currently tutoring a number of subjects, of which German, high school and college level Biology, Anatomy and Physiology are my most favorite. My style of tutoring consists of two major principles: that both tutor and student meet each other halfway in the process of learning and that using visual aids (charts,...
Tom I have a passion for learning and for helping others to learn! Started teaching undergrad courses in 1991...began tutoring in 1999 and received a tutoring award from the University of Pennsylvania. I like to make hard subjects clear and easy to handle!... Usually it's part "get to know you." But then I ask them what is bothering them the most, and we start there. If we have to back up to review things, no problem; I am there to help. I try to remind students I am not their teacher or parent, and I am not judging them at all.

I understand that the language learning process is challenging, and different for everyone. I also have extensive experience with academic and creative writing in English, including essays and research papers.

Natalie ...passion about personalized education. I studied English and Film, with a lot of everything else thrown in! As someone who's been stuck in classes that didn't do anything for me, I value the fact that everyone learns differently, and that variety and context, though integral to an engaged learning experience, are often lacking in traditional classrooms. I have remote teaching experience, so I'm looking forward to tutoring a wide variety of students online!... My teaching philosophy revolves around the individual. That's why I love one-on-one tutoring - everybody learns differently, and needs different things to help them reach their goals. I believe in taking the time to figure out what each of my students need, and then doing my best to provide that for them!

Elsa G ...progress toward their subject goals. I try to figure out what is not working for the student and try to reinforce what the student is doing well. If they don't understand one way, I look for other way to help them with what they are learning. I like helping students look for their interests and put those together to what they are learning about. I use different methods and look forward to tutoring.... Working on the foundations to build confidence in the student and make a surefooted progress toward the subject goals.

Frederic ...full 2016/2017 academic year. I am excited to have this opportunity, because I can use my love of learning to impact students in spaces that lack the necessary resources. Varsity Tutors is another stepping stone to complement this experience. The more exposure I get to mentoring different types of tutees, the stronger and more prepared I am to be a top tier mentor--a skill I will most definitely need for my long term goals. This...

Karen ...language—learning the nuances of vocabulary, grammar, and phonetics. And, as I often tell myself, learning a language isn’t hard: children across the world do it. (I have to remind myself of this, as I’m learning Japanese!) I tutor pupils in both French and German. Previously, I taught an introductory German course to adult students at a local language school. I also developed a curriculum for and taught an intermediate-level German grammar course. One-on-one, we covered...
