...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 questions of interest to me....

...an additionally strong focus in ecology and ecological applications of computation, because of my personal career ambitions. I intend to study large carnivores, especially tigers, with a heavy focus on mathematical and modeling approaches. To this end, I am beginning my doctorate in Environment and Resources at Wisconsin-Madison this fall, studying large carnivores with Bayesian modeling techniques. My tutoring strategy is to tackle topics of highest combined difficulty and priority first, and to do so...

I have a lot of experience teaching & tutoring and have completed a wide variety of standardized test with excellent scores.... Start by trying to achieve a broad understanding and refining it as needed.... Introduce myself, meet the student, and identify areas of strength and weakness.... Short breaks, fun problems.... Ask leading questions until the student understands, and then try to build a deeper understanding.... Try to make the passage seem more approachable or put it in simpler terms.

...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 he/she gets stuck. If the...

...I tutored over a hundred different students from diverse writing backgrounds in all stages of the writing process. I believe that dialogue and interaction are the most effective ways to teach and learn, both through implicit and explicit methods. I tutor so that students will understand why and how a concept functions, and then be able to organize it and analyze its different parts. My strongpoints as a tutor are in writing, but I also...

...New Mexico. I have taught lab courses in introductory physics and tutored college and high school students in physics and math. I am interested in making physics and math relatable to people who are not naturally adept at it. I have taken the SAT, the general GRE and the physics GRE subject tests. I also play trumpet and have studied music theory in music camps and AP music theory so I can tutor music theory.

...a wonderful job because it makes me a permanent student of the world, but I miss interacting with young students.

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.
