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.

Lyndsey ...classes I took, I became interested in learning and motivation. I believe that education is extremely important, but learning should also be fun!

I hope to be able to inspire my students and help their academics improve so that they can achieve their goals and dreams.

Determine the student's knowledge. 3. Collaborate with the student on a plan of action.... 1. Provide students with opportunities to self-monitor. 2. Provide written and/or oral feedback on classwork and homework. 3. Encourage students to set their own learning goals.... To help the students to accept that there is more than one answer, enhance learning by planning lectures to increase their understanding. Encourage students to read with more meaning.

Nikolaj ...following for eight years or so. It's been incredible to watch them move from eight guys in an apartment making funny videos to becoming a company that employs upwards of 70 people and just recently became the most funded film on Indiegogo since the platform's inception. They've always been funny guys making quality content, but their real strength lies in their community engagement. It's fascinating to me that we now live in an age where...
