MichaelI earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Oregon in human physiology. My time at the university provided me with a solid foundation in not only the field of science, but also the field of humanities. My diverse educational background has given me the ability to approach problems of all kinds from a variety of different angles. It also allows me to tutor a wide array of subjects, including algebra 1, general biology, geometry, anatomy, elementary school science, middle school science, physiology, anatomy & physiology, reading, writing, essay editing, high school and college English, psychology, chemistry, arithmetic, nutrition, pre-algebra, life sciences, social sciences, chemistry, and physics. My own struggles with math and science are partially responsible for my current love of teaching. It was with the help of my tutors that I found a mode of learning that allowed me to achieve academic success and it is my goal to provide a similar experience for the students I tutor. I know that there is no single method of conveying information that will resonate with every student. I take the time to discover how my students learn best and use that information to develop a program of study that will help them reach their academic potential.

GarrettAfter graduating from college, I spent the bulk of my free time tutoring eager students in literature, reading comprehension, and essay writing. As a college student, I spent the bulk of my time working as a tutor in the writing center, where taught my peers how to develop the skills necessary to write persuasive and well-structured essays. During that time, I also worked in the library as an assistant, which gave me the opportunity to host a number of workshops aimed at helping students improve their research skills. As a tutor, I've always been driven to help students gain the necessary academic and real-world skills needed to succeed. It's my goal to make sure that everyone that works with me doesn't only improve their classroom understanding, but becomes more motivated and confident a well. I understand that writing can be difficult for some, but I truly believe that anyone can become a beautiful writer when they're given the opportunity to work with someone who's committed to helping them succeed. For this reason, I like to design my lessons in a way that's filled with fun activities and exercises that students enjoy. When I'm not working as a tutor, I like to read books. My favorite genre is fantasy novels.

EricaI have 10 years of experience in education. I've taught LSAT and GRE test preparation, writing, math, and English. I particularly enjoy tutoring, because the one-on-one approach allows me to build a relationship with a student and teach to their learning style. Besides tutoring, I work at a private school helping students with all kinds of learning differences. This includes gifted students as well. I also have environmental policy work experience. I have a master's degree from American University in the field, as well as a background in academic research, statistics, and economics. I can tutor a wide array of subjects, and I look forward to working with you.
