I have 21 years of experience teaching/tutoring math, elementary arithmetic, pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, pre-calculus, and trigonometry. Science experience in physics and biology. My desire is to have students "own" the material. I ask questions to guide them through the problem solving process until they can do it independently. I have also taught classes in public speaking and coached speech and debate. We focus on organizing your thoughts, putting them in an outline, and formatting a... [more]

I'm John, and I do a little bit of everything! I'm currently a medical student at the University of Wisconsin, and I did my undergrad at the University of Minnesota. In between, I did a couple of terms of service with AmeriCorps - first as a math tutor at Pratt Community School in Minneapolis, and later as a math tutor at Memorial High School in Madison. My approach to tutoring is that all students can be successful if they are well understood and if concepts and ideas are communicated clear... [more]

I was a department tutor for introductory physics courses at Michigan State University and Western Michigan University for four years. I help students make the connections between the mathematical and the physical, to actually understand what equations mean, for deeper application skills than memorization alone. My students would often not fully recognize the relationships between the equations they were trying to solve and the physical situations described in the problems. Many math and phy... [more]

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree and Masters in Public Health from the University of Michigan. I am also three months away from graduating medical school. I previously taught an undergraduate biology course while I was in graduate school and tutored several physiology classes. I also have a vast amount of test taking experience including the ACT, SAT, GRE and MCAT. I am currently finishing medical school. I have been in school for 10 years since graduating high school and I love it! I've always been passionate about education and enjoy teaching others. Not only was I voted most likely to be [more]

Before I decided to study International Relations and Business, I almost wanted to become a mad scientist. I took some physics in college but couldn't get up early enough for the Saturday morning labs (I had to work on Friday nights in college). I have taught at the college or university level for almost ten years now. I have a broad base of understandings and have taught classes from humanities to finance to economics to literature. I took college calculus and have above-average writing skills. I also have a series 7 license and feel comfortable tutoring for those exams. Both of my parents [more]

I can help you with both subject matter understanding and test-taking strategy tips. My science background is very solid and my experience in tutoring includes strategies for maximizing scores on the SAT and ACT tests. As an experienced and patient tutor of physics and of math subjects through calculus and college first year linear algebra and differential equations, my great delight is in seeing the "light bulb" of comprehension in my students' faces. These subjects are not as difficult as they often seem to my students before they meet with me. My concrete illustrations and introductory exer [more]

Hello! Let me start out with a little about myself. I grew up in the Chicagoland area and am a product of the public school system from ages 4-17. I graduated from Prospect High School in Mount Prospect. While there I was a member of the tennis team, soccer team, math team, chess team, debate team, National Honor Society, an Illinois State Scholar and National Merit Scholar finalist. I went on to college at the University of Illinois and then medical school. The reason that I tutor is that... [more]

I am a teacher and instructor with over 7 years in classrooms with students from the 7th grade through college. My students are extremely successful on every high school end-of-course exam and that success continues in their future math classes. Why? We work together to develop intuition, critical thinking strategies, and perseverance. I have training as a SAT instructor as well.... [more]

"The key to education is to get to them before they realize that they're learning" - Unknown. Rather than teach a specific set of material, I prefer to give my students a set of mental tools that enable them to tackle the target material and use the subsequently developed analysis skills to find better ways to learn. I will require you to comprehend concepts and will not teach rote memorization methods unless special needs call for it. I have taught middle and high school classes on math ... [more]

I am in my Junior year of Ferris State's Secondary Education program, majoring in English and minoring in both Biology and Psychology. I hope to teach either Biology or English for Grand Rapids Public Schools, where my elementary-aged children attend. I have experience with one-on-one, in-home tutoring for both public school and home school students ranging from elementary to high school levels. I also spent two years tutoring writing at Grand Rapids Community College's drop-in writing lab,... [more]
