David ...will help that specific student become a better learner. My job is to not only help the student overcome specific content hurdles, but to also help them become a better learner overall. That is my global view on our responsibility as educators.

Emma ...humanities—expect a very enthusiastic tutor especially if we are talking about Shakespeare! I also think it is important to try and frame things in a context students are used to, so if that means watching She's the Man in order to understand Twelfth Night, then that's what we will do (although we do have to read the actual play as well). If that sounds like something you could use, get in touch!

Alex ...closely with students and their families. Most of my professional work has involved helping people to communicate. I love to teach writing, and I am as comfortable reviewing academic papers as I am teaching junior high and high school students. At the University of Texas, I worked with many ESL authors who, although experts in their field, felt uncomfortable publishing in a second language. It was my job to guide them through grammatical and stylistic...

Katlyn ...seeing the way knowledge changes students; it alleviates stress, builds confidence, broadens the mind, and can even bring a great amount of joy. In order to facilitate this excitement in learning, I connect content to what interests students and tailor lessons to their individual learning styles. I pull from a variety of teaching methods, including visual (PowerPoint, videos, pictures), auditory (lecture, discussion, sound recordings), and hands-on (activities, games, practice problems). I have found that adjusting...

I've tutored students of all ages in the principles of composition, rhetoric, and a number of humanities and social science disciplines.

Jharrett ...I was a high school senior, I was accepted into 8 Ivy League universities, as well as Stanford and MIT. I truly appreciate and enjoy helping students of all ages achieve their college admissions goals! Outside of teaching and tutoring, I love to run and explore the city of Houston.

Rudy ...have found that several students have the potential to do well in school. The problems they face can be due to a variety of reasons, and one-on-one tutoring is a great way to help students figure out what those problems are and find out how to master the material. Aside from my math and science interests, I enjoy hanging out with family/friends, reading, movies, traveling, and I'm down for trying almost anything. I also love...
