LaurenI attended Kent State University, where I earned my bachelor's degree in Education. I am currently a licensed teacher for grades seven through twelve in English and language arts. I have experience tutoring in reading, grammar, literature, writing, vocabulary, and basic study skills. I have also taught in a classroom setting for two years, teaching high school honors English. I've also had the opportunity to teach literature, including poetry, Shakespeare, and young adult novels and nonfiction. Because I have found that students have a variety of ways in which they best learn, I like my initial tutoring sessions to include time to interact with my student and discover together what their best learning style is. It also helps me create individualized lessons if I know what my student's interests are, whether it's sports, cars, castles, or pop music. I don't start asking my student difficult questions right from the start. Instead, I begin with the more basic questions, and work towards more difficult material until we find the place to begin. I have a flexible schedule, and am known to work hard and be patient and punctual. In my free time, I like writing, reading, cooking, shopping, and going to the movies.

JillianI graduated with a bachelor's degree in political science at Manhattanville College. My focus was legal studies, and I minored in math. After graduation, I've been tutoring for the most part. I've three years of tutoring experience at this point dating back to my sophomore year of college. I've had the opportunity to tutor all core high school topics, and the ones I love the most are science and math, particularly chemistry, calculus, geometry, trigonometry, and algebra. Learning is a lifelong process, and it's something that I love. I hope to be able to help others love to learn as well.

SAT Subject Tests
GlenI earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Maryland in chemistry and my graduate degree from the University of Wisconsin. I have spent several semesters teaching chemistry to undergraduate students and I've also spent time tutoring individual students. I currently tutor students in the subjects of chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, honors chemistry, science, and quantitative reasoning. I also help students prepare for the GRE subject test in chemistry, the quantitative portion of the GRE, and various other GRE and SAT subjects. I find general chemistry to be the most fascinating topic because it lays the foundation for all of the other subcategories of the field. It is within general chemistry studies one begins discussing the chemical reactions which occur between molecules. However, I do enjoy helping students who have found a more specific specialty such as physical or organic chemistry. My teaching and tutoring experience has taught me that the most effective way to relay information about chemistry is to combine problem solving and conceptual discussions. I've also found that it is important to make these concepts relatable to the student's own life. Because of this, I take the time to get to know my students so I know exactly how to present the information to them that will make it easier to understand.
