Heidi An energetic, ambitious, responsible and intelligent individual who has developed a mature and responsible approach to any tasks undertaken. Experienced, creative, adaptable and bright individual with an excellent motivation towards learning and helping others. ... I have two teaching philosophies as a tutor: to get students to think about science (and other classes) as a process, and to individualize their learning experiences.... In a typical first session with a student I will introduce myself and then ask them questions about themselves, such as "What is your favorite color?" or " What is your favorite hobby?" as an ice breaker and then follow up by telling them something about me.

Eric ...Teaching has always come easily to me, and my students claim to learn well from my flexible teaching styles. I can effectively relate the material to students' lives so they can understand it in their own terms. If the student doesn't reach the answer on his own, then it won't be meaningful or committed to memory. I find a way to lead with questions so the students can feel the small triumphs of answering questions...

All too often instructors present material at their level of understanding and forget that their knowledge has come with years of exposure to a particular field.

I try my best to avoid what I may perceive as a small jump in logic because it often becomes...
