I teach because it allows me to share my love of learning. I'm most satisfied when I can awaken a new interest in a ?boring? subject or show a student a new way of looking at a problem. I get excited when students tell me that they see connections that weren't there before or that they finally understand something that has always baffled them. I try to bring passion to everything I teach, and I work hard to push my students to their highest potential. I'm an English and History specialist wi... [more]

My greatest strength as a tutor (beyond really knowing the subjects I tutor) is my ability to adapt to and match the way you learn. A close second is my ability to take abstract concepts and make them much more understandable. I don?t do ?tricks? since it takes as much effort to memorize tons of tricks as it does to actually learn the stuff (though I do have plenty of ideas on how to do things more easily). What I do do is teach solid theory, techniques, and study skills as simply and directl... [more]

Hello! My name is Nick and I am an Emory University graduate with a degree in environmental science. Frankly, I love learning, and I spend most of my free time reading books. I believe the pursuit of knowledge to be the greatest pursuit in life and I hope to instill this mindset into each and every student that I mentor. My success is derived not only from teaching the material to students but from also sparking a genuine interest in the material. My greatest strength lies in my ability to ga... [more]

Since earning my B.A. and M.Ed. at U.C.L.A., I have more than twenty years of teaching experience in a variety of settings to include middle school, high school, and community college. As an ACT tutor, I worked with students in small groups of 3 to 4 to help develop their basic reading, writing, and math skills for 7 years. Additionally, I completed evaluations and reports to chart students' progress. Well versed in the role that technology plays in student learning, I set high standards in a calm and supportive manner.

SAT Math: 750 (~13 years ago) GRE Math: 168; 97th percentile (last year) Writing is hard. Formal writing can be even harder. Maybe you have to write a paper for school. Maybe you want someone to look at your thesis or statement of purpose. Maybe you just want to improve your writing. The best way to improve is to practice with someone who's been there. Together, we can identify your weaknesses, hone your instincts, and learn the craft of formal writing - a skill that will serve you throughout your life and career. I have a variety of formal writing experiences. ... [more]

I enjoy working with the students to think through the process to reach the solution to a given problem. Every student t... [more]

Forty years of teaching Mathematics in High Schools, public and private, foreign and domestic, traditional and alternative, magnet and remedial, have provided me with many experiences to learn three basic principles for teaching and tutoring. The first is that the primary information that a teacher needs to know is what it is that the learner needs to learn. The second is that every lesson must be a success for the student. And the third is that the lesson must start at the level of the stud... [more]
