Neil ...Teaching. My favorite thing about teaching is helping students learn how awesome science is. Everything we interact with everyday is made possible because of it. I fully believe that anyone can become great at math or science. I am also an accomplished amatuer musician. I play piano and low brass instruments. I've played all over the world, and am very active in the Kansas City area. Aside from my family, music is my passion.

My dedication is to always be...

I try to make my sessions as fun as possible so that my students will remain interested in the subject matter for a longer period of time.

Bryan ...'resource-orientated' approach. Very often you will have tutors simply there to answer the students' questions "how do I solve for x?" and the like, with a response of "first you add 5 to both sides, then divide both sides by q". That's already excellent. I prefer to take it one step further. If a student asks me to "how do I solve for x?" we will learn it together. We will take a dive through...

Russell ...writing as I do writing myself. In the sciences, I have had exposure to biochemistry, introductory biology, and general, organic, inorganic, physical, and analytical chemistry. In my teaching, my current focus is on general chemistry (at the high school or college level) and organic chemistry, both of which were always personal favorites. Even more importantly, in my pursuit of the sciences and humanities I have not just mastered two different types of content; rather, I’ve...

Daria ...and am constantly scanning the latest pedagogical literature to keep abreast of current teaching theories. My strengths lie in verbal expression, although I have a background in science (especially biology) as well. My specialty is helping to improve language/reading scores and writing/editing skills, as my perfect scores in the verbal portions of the SAT and the GRE demonstrate. I have lived/studied in France for a year, and am extremely proficient in the language.
Patrick ...and was astounded at how many of them looked at me with smiles of recognition. My love for tutoring has extended into college.

On Monday and Wednesday afternoons, a group of my colleagues and me visit a nearby grade school to help...
