Nevin Industrial Engineering graduate from University of Tennessee Knoxville. Just a guy who loves solving math problems and spreading his knowledge to others. ... Each student learns best in his or her own unique way. I prefer to observe and adapt my teaching style to each student's learning style. Often teaching methods change depending on a student's level of mastery of the material. I lead by following the student.... The first session would begin with listening to the student to understand what we were trying to accomplish from the tutoring and what material we would cover. We might begin digging into the material slowly at first so I can get a feel for the student's learning style and level of mastery of the subject.

Steven I have a BBA and an MSBA in Management Information Systems from the University of Memphis, and I am a former Instructor at Southwest TN Community College. I started working at Southwest as a Math Tutor, and I've tutored elementary and high school students. I have also assisted several colleagues with standardized placement and proficiency tests and with their undergraduate and graduate courses.... I first try to figure out where each student is academically. They may not know themselves, but I make the best determination that I can with my understanding of the subject area. Next, I begin working with them to bring them up to speed with where they need to be. I explain, demonstrate, and let them practice in their coursework. I try to keep them aware of their own progress, and work with them to bring them to the point where they can master material at a sufficient pace on their own.

Sheleah I believe in the power of an educated mind and have taken the responsibility to create an environment conducive to academic success for my students. ... To educate is to become better educated; it is a circular process that improves with time. I believe the responsibility of educators is to provide students with the necessary knowledge and skills to succeed academically and personally. My teaching philosophy is based on the belief that education is the solution to many social issues we face today. As an educator, I will strive to encourage excellence in my students and myself. Course material should be challenging, interactive and relevant to current issues and events. Students learn and retain more information if the material is presented in an environment that is interesting and interactive. I strive to be a catalyst for others to pursue their highest potential.

Latera ...my heart since an early age. I remember watching my grandmother read the daily newspaper from the inside out. Surely, I thought, there must some secret knowledge inside because once she started reading she was oblivious to everything else going one beyond the words on those pages. It's no surprise I learned to read at an early age and my most magical moments about learning came when we would sit together at the table, my...
