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!...

Natalie ...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!
