ZakMy name is Zak, and I attended the University of Central Missouri, where I study math education. I have five years of tutoring experience, and I'm looking forward to helping you with algebra, trigonometry, geometry, pre-algebra, preparation for the math section of the ACT, and other related subjects.

ShanaSTEM subjects such as science and math are vital to the future, and I believe that all students can learn them. I understand that many people find them intimidating, and I like to use the metaphor of building a house to make it seem easier. If your house doesn't have a good foundation, it won't have the structural integrity it needs. Likewise, if a student first understands the basics of math or science before moving on to more advanced material, their understanding is structurally sound. Many students find me easy to work with because of my fun, outgoing personality. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy playing sports and reading books. I am also very active in my community.

KarinaI am a bilingual tutor with experience teaching Spanish and English to children. My first teaching job was serving as Child Section Director for La Semilla ELL schools in New Orleans. My students were studying English and ranged in age from 2-12. That's a big differential, so I spent most of my time providing age-appropriate individualized instruction that I hope to translate to private tutoring. My teaching style also incorporates lots of games to keep learning fun! I also enjoy English Literature, and studied all of the greats (Shakespeare, Western Lit, American Lit, etc.) in pursuit of my bachelor's degree. I have also worked for a ton of websites as an editor/writer, giving me plenty of experience evaluating longer writing assignments. I believe that anybody can learn any subject once I discover the right way to teach it to you!
