I love tutoring all subjects, but Phonics and Reading are definitely my favorites!
Melissa ...In college, I tutored a student in the basics of photography. While I have worked with students in math, logic, reading, grammar, photography study skills, and more, math and logic are my favorites to tutor. I think the most important thing is to convey that learning can be fun. If it is fun, we are more inclined to do it! I love to play logic games, math games, and word games to learn in a...

Mary ...kitchen. I love to write, and love helping students write as creatively as possible within the parameters of their schoolwork. I’m committed to making learning as fun and enjoyable. Having been an occasionally reluctant learner, I believe that most people are happiest when they feel that they’re learning independently, and are empowered enough to make their education their own. I want to help students create this sense of worth and importance within their studies and...

Cyntia ...school. I have concentrated my efforts on specializing in the areas of math and science in the upper elementary grades. Having students master math skills during this time in the education sets them up for future success and less frustration at the middle school level.

Owen ...my students through engaging teaching strategies as well as forging interpersonal relationships. My experiences teaching have led me to realize that learning is a complex process that requires more than academic content. Creating a positive environment in the classroom (or wherever we decide to do our learning) makes learning exciting. Grasping difficult concepts is a whole lot easier when the process is fun! I bring energy and empathy into my instruction, and build personal relationships...
