Rose J. ...My students say that I make things fun and easy to understand. I love teaching, learning, and being a part of helping my students succeed. I have found that usually when a student is struggling in a subject, either there are gaps in instruction and skills that were missed or not taught in earlier grades or the student does not understand the vocabulary for that subject.

Ben H. ...I am familiar with genetics, molecular biology, microbiology, botany, zoology, physiology, ecology, and evolutionary biology. The fastest way to acquire new vocabulary is through exposure as a reader and listener. The role of a tutor is to ask and answer questions, ensuring that the learner understands contextual clues, connotations, and special meanings.

Thomas H. ...Of course, I would not attempt to teach a third grader how to write a college essay. However, I would not be above trying to teach some of the finer points of essay writing to a middle school student or paragraphing to an elementary student. I have been a licensed English and reading teacher in Indiana since 2004 and have had my own classroom for eight of those years.

Daniel M. ...Now that I am home, I am preparing to go back to school for a masters degree. When I teach mathematical concepts I try to use a lot of basic examples that vary only slightly from each other. Additionally, mathematical thinking is quite different than how we ordinarily think; I try to use real-world analogs of math to make the symbols really mean something to students.
