TerryI have extensive tutoring and teaching experience. I have volunteered in and observed middle school and high school classrooms for more than 200 hours. In the seventh-grade classroom, I have volunteered for more than 150 hours. My experience includes working with students in groups and one-on-one. I can help with many subjects including test prep, trigonometry, algebra, English, study skills, and others. I earned my bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am very passionate about helping students apply, retain, and learn math concepts. Outside of teaching, I like studying history, listening to music, watching movies, playing the guitar, and using the Elliptical trainer.

KimberlyI attended the Springfield campus of Missouri State University, where I earned my bachelor's degree in Spanish and Anthropology. This included semesters abroad in both Spain and China, and I tutored students in English during both of these trips. I've now traveled to about 20 different countries, and have had numerous years of experience tutoring students in the English language. I also helped high school students in Spain prepare for their standardized exam equivalents to the ACT or SAT. I've worked with students in elementary, middle, and high school around the world. I am available to tutor a wide variety of subjects, but my passion runs towards history, writing, English, and Spanish.
