Daniel M. ...Now that I am home, I am studying to go back to school for a master's in engineering. I find that many students learn by memorizing formulas and algorithms, and when they are required to build upon their knowledge, rote memorization fails them. When I teach mathematical concepts I try to allow students to see the patterns emerge without aid by showing many examples of similar problems.

Hilary V. ...I have extensive experience teaching test prep—GED, SSAT, ACT, SAT, PSAT, and GRE. I have worked with many kinds of test prep books and have come to believe that the same three things are always important for test prep: work, practice, and fun. Any student who comes ready for all three is a student whose score I can help raise!

Stephanie T. ...As a teacher and tutor, I am patient, positive, and organized. I believe it is critical to find a way to connect abstract concepts to a student's every day life. When you can relate a concept to a favorite hobby or better understand the importance of a new idea/skill, it makes learning it that much easier.

Sarah R. ...I scored at 34 overall score on the ACT, with a perfect 36 in math. I love to teach others what I can, and I strive to make the student understand topics fully before moving on to other topics. I do not believe in overwhelming students, as I feel they do not absorb the materials that way.
