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.

Betsy ...an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant, I was directly involved in one-on-one learning sessions, lecturing, and classroom management. I taught Principles of Biology Laboratory independently for classrooms of 12 students. In order to engage more with non-biology majors, I reiterated complex concepts by illustrating hand-drawn diagrams as well as verbal explanations. I took a very similar approach to teaching students that were more well-versed in biology when I taught Fundamentals of Microbiology Laboratory, where I focused on...

Eli I have over eight years experience tutoring, mostly in math and science, but other subjects as well. I attempt to find analogous concepts from a student's other interests or daily experiences to make abstract concepts more understandable. I believe that generally, grasping a concept follows on from realizing it's not so foreign as we used to think.

James ...an instructor is unknown to a student who has just begun to learn. I try my best to avoid what I may perceive as a small jump in logic because it often becomes a tremendous leap for the students. My responses to questions have a variety of sophistication. I attempt to provide gradually decreasing vagueness as I answer a question. While a student is looking for "the answer", I try to never answer a question on...

Julian Biology, chemistry, and related electives are tough courses that demand rigorous study. As a tutor and soon to be medical student, I am passionate about helping students master these subjects. I know firsthand how difficult these classes can be and how important success is for acceptance into a professional school. My goal is to facilitate your learning in the most effective way possible by empowering you to be successful.... First, I like to find out what the student's academic goals are and what is his/her preferred learning style. Next, I tailor our tutoring sessions to most efficiently achieve those goals. Finally, I check learning progress by having the student teach the subject back to me.
