My biggest passion is for the English language -- I love helping students express their thoughts as well as teaching them how to see the b... [more]

Tutoring in Science and Math: Microbiology, Chemistry, Algebra

I've tutored all age groups from elementary to college and have covered subjects from Spanish to Algebra. I think the best part about tutoring is watching a student have that breakthrough moment where they... [more]

English (writing, editing, etc.) tutor

Hi! I'm Adam. I like writing, editing and the nitpicky details of predicates and comma splices. I cut my teeth on newspapers and academia. As the Arts Editor for my school paper, I mentored and edited my peers' articles for clarity. I ended up teaching grammar and creative writing to them and found it rewarding to see their writing improve and flower. I went on to be an Editorial Intern for The Signal Tribune. Reading, writing and editing should be fun. I hope to bring out that in others.... [more]

Mastery of the English Language is Key to All Great Success

Passion and enthusiasm are essential to learning. No matter how smart you are--and especially if you're smarter than most--unless a teacher can explain a subject in a way that you can fully understand and assimilate, you may learn that subject but you will never master it. The teachers from whom I learned the most had the ability to explain a complicated subject in terms I could understand; in other words, they tailored their teaching to individual needs. Unfortunately, our educational system... [more]
