Joseph ...Bacteriology. I was a teaching and laboratory assistant during my time in college where I helped many students through their science courses. I was recently a Microbiology Professor in Portland and really enjoyed the student-teacher interaction. I am looking to continue this through tutoring students in the Phoenix area. Some of my favorite subjects to teach are science, math and writing I am easily able to pull items from my experiences to relate the material...

Jared ...also having done graduate work in Spanish. After finishing at Harvard, I moved back to the Valley of the Sun to be with my family and started work on a M.S. in Psychology with a focus on Psychology and Law. My current academic interest is how non-native English speakers interact with the justice system here in AZ. Law school is in my future—more than likely—but I’m enjoying my time at home and getting to explore...

Katie ...backgrounds, and in many different subject areas. I have a master’s degree in Education from Valparaiso University and am passionate about learning! My favorite part about teaching is helping students overcome their fear and dislike of subjects that are confusing or difficult for them. I think that when a tutor can break down the material into manageable pieces and explain it in new ways, all hard working students can make progress! I love to help...

Gregory I am an applied mathematician, specializing in probability. I used to teach at the university level, but moved into industry. After being away from teaching for some time I found that I still want to play a part-time role in education. It was my experience that one on one teaching in office hours brought the most benefit to students, so tutoring is the best way for me to take part in education.... It is a best to transmit knowledge and skills in a way tailored to each student's unique mindset. This fact makes classroom teaching very difficult, so for many students one-on-one tutoring is an optimal method to learn.

Debo I have extensive tutoring experience in math, physics, chemistry and engineering subjects. I really enjoy tutoring and like the interaction with students. ... Teaching is a way to share knowledge and improve your own learning.... By helping them understand the core concepts. Focus on understanding the problem itself rather than the solution.... By praising them on their successes, pointing out places for improvement and making learning a fun process.... I will try to illustrate the skill or concept with different examples that the student can relate to.

Ari ...poised to graduate from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee in May with a B.S. in Cell and Molecular Biology, summa cum laude. I like to consider myself a "whole-brained" scholar, and am equally happy to tutor in math/science or the humanities. I have taken both the GRE and the MCAT, and scored at or above the 95th percentile on both; I therefore have an extensive understanding of how to prepare for and excel at...

Cayla ...a tutor for three years at my college's Office of Academic Services, primarily working with students in math and science. I enjoy being a resource to help students struggling in math and science, as these subjects can be difficult to understand. I employ a variety of strategies including mnemonic devices, physical manipulatives, and drawings/diagrams to accommodate different learning styles. Typically, I have the students attempt to solve a problem and then ask leading questions whenever...

Jenny I am an educator who loves to help students reach their goals. I have taught for many years, and always enjoy the challenge of working with a student who is struggling with the content they've been assigned. My goal as a tutor is to help students succeed while challenging them to use their critical thinking skills, regardless of the subject.... I spend some time getting to know the student and try to quickly understand their needs, strengths, and weaknesses. I also ask them about their honest attitude to their subject.

Aaron I connect with people best through sharing ideas. The majority of my spare time is spent trying to simplify or find alternate proofs of basic theorems to make them more intuitive.... Focusing on beauty solves many problems a teacher faces. If I am attending a lecture about The Great Gatsby, I will be eager if the speaker tells of the beauty she sees, rather than a quick and dirty type of analysis. I regularly talk to people who admit math wasn't their favorite subject in school. Some were self-conscious. Some had gaps they never filled. Some just didn't care. Whatever the case, I admit to them that math is my favorite art form with as much room for expression as sculpting or jazz. I claim that mathematicians are half artists, half observers of fine art. My conversants often tell me it is an epiphany for them to think of math as such, and that it helps heal their math wound. A marvelous way I have found to unveil beauty in the classroom is by using surprise. I like to present ideas from a simple perspective, discuss them briefly, then release a theorem. Thales' theorem (the diameter of a circle subtends a right angle to any point on the circumference) is a great example, especially with the aid of Java applets. After playing a bit with triangles by moving points around in a worksheet, it's surprising to be able to connect two structures as basic as a right triangle and a diameter. Next in importance to marveling at beauty, I want students to learn to think critically to solve problems. Understandably, some students have never had guidance past high school drills. All the more, problem solving should be emphasized and revisited throughout college curriculum. I have many years of experience in problem solving competitions and a collection of principles regarding problem solving that I like to follow. One is about inverse problems. Consider the following: if baseball cards are five cents apiece and shipping costs fifty cents, how many cards will one dollar buy? After making the arithmetic clear, students had better know how to calculate the forward problem, i.e. "How much will x number of cards cost?" I'm depending on them knowing the forward problem because we covered it last week, but it is important to bring it out in more than just a mention so the students have a comfortable base to start. It's like revisiting rational numbers before diving into irrationals. They are intrinsically tied, and it gives the class confidence to start with old material.
