MathiasMy name is Mathias, and I'm currently attending Vanderbilt University for my undergraduate degree in neuroscience. As a student, I enjoy studying neuroscience, Siberian literature, public speaking, and theoretical physics. I am looking forward to attending grad school to continue studying neuroscience, I hope to work as a researcher and teacher. I love to learn, and I love to share what I know with others. Subjects I like to tutor include, neuroscience, physics, biology, history, geometry, algebra, Russian, economics, finance, accounting, business, and test preparation. In my free time, I enjoy rowing, swimming, traveling, playing the piano, cooking, sailing, windsurfing, and theater.

MadelineI'm a pre-med student at Vanderbilt University, working towards my degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology, and one in Medicine, Health, and Society. I have had experience as a tutor since I was in middle school and was asked to aid other students as they studied math. I was able to help many achieve success, and have continued tutoring in both official and unofficial capacities ever since. The main subject I tutor students in is math, as that's where my interests and abilities are strongest, but also work with students in science areas, and have guided a number of students to success on standardized exams like the ACT, SAT, and other similar tests. I get a kick out of being with students as they experience their "aha" moments in learning, where a concept they have been struggling to understand suddenly becomes clear. While sometimes students need to just memorize items for a test that is coming up, and I can help them do that, I find it far more valuable to help a student gain a true understanding of subjects in a broad context, as that will enable them to retain the knowledge for a long time. Outside of academia, I enjoy volleyball, cooking, and the Green Bay Packers.

JamesOne of my biggest beliefs is that in order to teach well, you must be an excellent student. My love of teaching began when I started tutoring junior high students at church during my senior school years. One thing this experience has shown me is that learning is effective when there is a two way street between pupils and teachers. I enjoy hearing feedback from learners because then I know how they are doing and we can set a goal to work on. I am originally from Tennessee, from a northwestern town named Troy. I took two majors, one in Spanish and one in Communications. My life experience includes living in places such as Paraguay, Honduras, as well as taking numerous vacations to Mexico. I speak Spanish and can teach the culture and the language. As far as tutoring experience, I have been a tutor for many junior and senior high schools in Nashville. I tutored ESL, English, Spanish, and math. I have also worked for the radio station and the newspaper and I am very passionate about news, writing, and grammar. I firmly believe as long as you can articulate well and write well, people will understand you. In addition to language and grammar, I also love history. I love Latin American history, world history, as well as American History. When I have spare time, I enjoy kayaking, biking, and trying new adventurous ideas. I would love to get to know you and help you reach your academic goals.
