TaylorI'm currently attending BYU for my bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering, along with a management minor. I love to understand how things work, and that is what has inspired me as a student. As a tutor, I specialize in algebra, calculus, and test preparation. I'm also a fluent Spanish speaker, having been immersed in the language by living in Spain for two years. I'm particularly skilled in the Castilian variety of Spanish. I love to learn, and I am excited share my love of learning with others. When I have free time, I enjoy volleyball, basketball, hiking, camping, and watching movies.

RobertI graduated from the University of Utah with a bachelor's degree in kinesiology and a minor in chemistry, as well as a focus on pre-med. Over the course of my studies, I became active in a number of extracurricular programs that allowed me to work close with my peers and people in the community. These experiences were great because they gave me the chance to apply some of my classroom knowledge in a real-world context, which is precisely why I like working as a tutor. My experiences in leadership positions have given me the opportunity to work with kids with various disabilities at a medical rehabilitation center, as well as students at the high school and college level. There's nothing more rewarding than helping a student reach that enlightening moment where everything suddenly makes sense. I find that the best way to teach complex material is to break it down into smaller pieces and frame it in a way that the student can relate to, so that they're able to learn at their own pace rather. I also believe that everyone has a different learning style, so the best way to teach is to come up with activities that appeal to each type of student.

JohnI'm currently attending Brigham Young University to earn my bachelor's degree in biophysics. I'm also seeking a French minor. My goal is to earn my doctorate in physics and become a college professor. I love learning, but I also love sharing what I know with others. My experience as an educator includes teaching wilderness medicine techniques in the Netherlands to doctors, teaching hygiene and self-care to villagers in Kenya, coaching water polo, and volunteering in elementary schools. I'm comfortable working with students of all ages and abilities, as well as people from unique and diverse backgrounds. I believe every student has their own unique way of learning, and I like to help students and cultivate it to help them become independent learners. For the past five years, I've been tutoring students at the high school and college level in subjects like math, chemistry, French, biology, physics, and preparation for the ACT. My students have shown a lot of improvement through my tutelage. Most have seen significant improvements in grades and test scores, but more importantly they build confidence in themselves and the way that they learn. When I work with a student, I determine what they want to achieve and where their talents and opportunities are. I then build a lesson plan with the student to help them reach their goals.
