ZeeshanI'm a doctoral student at Vanderbilt University studying economics. I earned my master's degree at the University of Maryland in public policy. I have plenty of experience teaching math and economics courses. As a tutor, I'm comfortable helping students in algebra one and two, algebra three - four, calculus, geometry, pre-calculus, economics, microeconomics, macroeconomics, business, statistics, GRE test preparation, and others. When I have free time, I like to swim, skate, read, play chess, and relax.

KennethMy tutoring technique is to ensure that my students understand problem solving techniques while making sure that they have basic skills and a solid foundation for learning. My foundation for teaching is based on a quote by William Butler Yeats "education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." I am a mathematics teacher, as such; I know learning math is not about dumping a bunch of formulas, facts, and theorems into a pail to carry with you. It is about planning solutions, solving problems, and looking for patterns. You need to know more than just a bunch of facts. I teach my students to think critically about the problem, the path you take to get the answer, and the solution. I have thirteen years of experience in teaching high school mathematics, with an additional five years as a college instructor. I have gained insight into how to help my students achieve their goals. It is my duty to teach my pupils that there are multiple ways to solve the same problem. I need my students to leave having a deep understanding of the subject. When I am not tutoring, you can find me watching sports and doing woodwork.

DennisI have a bachelor's degree in biochemistry, as well as a master's in chemical and physical biology, which I received from Vanderbilt University. I have two things in life that I'm passionate about: science and education. As a college student, I had the privilege of studying a lot of interesting subjects outside of my field, like philosophy, history, literature, and writing. I believe that education helps empower people to achieve greatness in life. For this reason, I like working as a tutor. Teaching gives me the chance to share my skills and experiences with eager pupils, so that I can help create a new generation of future scientists. I believe that patience and communication are both important characteristics that every good teacher should have. Students need to feel comfortable asking questions and participating in the classroom. Additionally, I also work hard to come up with lessons that have been custom tailored with my students' needs in mind. That way, they're able to learn in a way that works best for them. Along with sciences, I also have experience helping students prepare for the SAT, ACT, and GRE. When I'm not tutoring, I like to spend my time reading, drawing, and playing sports.
