Ryan C. ...I tutored two years while there in the Math and Business Center. Out of college I worked for Sylvan Learning Center, tutoring all levels for math, and running the math portion of the SAT program. During the day I was substitute teaching at Dartmouth High School, and tutoring students there for the MCAS.

Matt L. ...I teach how to reason and explain and problem solve, not how to memorize, regurgitate, and forget. Even for technical subjects I emphasize logical foundations and deep conceptual understanding -- because that's what enables you to think for yourself and usually what others are terrible at teaching. It may take hard work, but it's so worth it.
