StephenI'm a tutor based in Sacramento, California, where I enjoy bicycling, hiking, and riding motorcycles when I'm not working with students. I have a bachelor's degree in economics and mathematics from the University of Wisconsin, as well as a master's degree from in economics from Stanford University. After graduating from Stanford, I taught for five years at multiple universities, including Tulane and San Diego State University. After teaching, I worked for 25 years in the energy and utility industries as an analyst performing cost allocation and rate design, as well as developing policy and designing electric markets. All of this experience means that I bring with my a depth of knowledge and ability to each one of my tutoring sessions. I enjoy getting to know the student I'm working with and learning about his or background and how that can be incorporated into their lesson plan. I think it's very important for students to understand the formulas behind the numbers, not just the numbers themselves. I prefer to teach students by allowing them to do rather than just watching me lecture at them. Accordingly, my tutoring sessions are generally very active. I hope that I can use my background to help you reach your educational goals.

NadinI just completed medical school, and I'm preparing for residency. I've always enjoyed tutoring, and I'm looking forward to helping students learn. When I was at the University of California - San Diego, I taught a cognitive sciences course to undergraduates. I've also tutored medical students for board exams. I enjoy helping students by explaining concepts in ways that are easier to understand. I want my students to become confident in their abilities and have fun along the way. I will work alongside my students to help them achieve their goals in the most efficient way possible. I can tutor algebra, anatomy and physiology, biology, emergency medicine, chemistry, microbiology, writing, essays, literature, study skills and organization, nutrition, public speaking, pharmacology, test preparation, and more. In my free time, I like to swim, cook, read, travel, and hike.

LisaThe two things in life that I feel the most passionately about are learning new things and sharing my knowledge with others. Regardless of whether I'm the student or the teacher, I love spending time in the classroom setting. Throughout my experience as a college student, I spent a lot of time immersing myself in various languages and cultures, and even how to use German and French proficiently. As someone who loves linguistics and learning new languages, I love to teach anything related to communication - including literature and language arts. As a tutor, I love working with students in a one-on-one setting as well as in groups. There's something incredibly rewarding about being able to help someone expand their knowledge of the world and develop the skills necessary to succeed in the classroom and out in the real world. One of my favorite teaching moments was when I was working at the humanities department at a private high school in my community, where I was able to inspire a whole new generation of students while teaching them about language and performing arts. I also have experience helping college-ready pupils prepare for the SAT and ACT, in addition to developing the skills needed to write persuasive essays and motivational letters.
