MariaI believe that every student can learn any subject given the proper resources. As a tutor, I want to help students learn the sciences, and I will do whatever I can help them be successful. I explain the core concepts of the subject I tutor to ensure that students have a fundamental understanding. I also provide a lot of practice problems, and I interject my own advice and interesting details to keep students engaged. My tutoring experience includes three years as a volunteer tutor and mentor, and internship for an elementary school, and tutoring on campus. I also had the opportunity to study abroad in Spain, which exposed me to working with people from other cultures. I went to Western Michigan University for a bachelor of arts in Spanish and a bachelor science is in biomedical sciences. I'm looking forward to attending medical school in the future. In my free time, I like to study languages, listen to music, go for runs, and cook.

KarenI received my Bachelor of Arts in Spanish at Central Michigan University, and I later completed a Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction. I have over 20 years teaching Spanish to children in grades K-12 in Milwaukee, WI and Ann Arbor, MI, and I implemented the curriculum for our district grade schools. I have a toolbox of different ways to teach Spanish to both groups and individuals, and I will often use rhymes, games, and songs to engage the students in our lessons. I have found children learn more easily when they are relaxed and having fun, and they will be more likely to ask questions and use their new vocabulary when they feel confident from positive reinforcement. The one-on-one aspect of tutoring means I can spend as much time as a student needs to make sure they thoroughly understand each lesson, and I am able to cater my teaching approach to the method that works best for them. I'm an experienced educator who would love to tutor you or your student in Spanish, Spanish 1, Spanish 2, or Conversational Spanish, whether it is for a school class or for your personal or professional enrichment. In my free time, I enjoy spending time exploring Ann Arbor, walking, biking, boating, and skiing. I am a travel buff, but I also spend time at home relaxing and knitting.

AlaaeddeenI went to the University of Windsor to earn a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in chemistry. I'm now continuing on at the school for my doctoral degree in chemistry. During the course of my studies, I've also had the chance to conduct research and take coursework at Cornell University. My goal is to work in chemistry in a professional academic role where I can share my knowledge of chemistry with others while conducting research. I love to teach, and I have seven years of experience teaching so far. I worked with students at all levels of ability and from very diverse backgrounds. I focus on helping students get a full comprehension of the material as opposed to memorizing formulas and the periodic table. When I explain concepts, I'm thorough and use a lot of examples to help students understand concepts better. In my free time, I enjoy tennis, soccer, and ping pong.
