ShaunaI attended Texas A&M University for my bachelor's degree in biomedical sciences. I then went to Tulane University, where I studied for my graduate degree in public health and tropical medicine. I'm currently pursuing a certificate to teach middle school and high school level life sciences in Texas. I currently have a probationary license to teach, and I've taken all the necessary coursework. As for tutoring, I understand how valuable individual attention is to help students become more confident in their abilities and improve their grades. I used tutoring myself as a student, and was very beneficial for me considering my dyslexia and dysgraphia. Because of my own learning disabilities, I understand that every student learns in their own unique way. I had to figure out what works best for me, and I will work with my students to find out what works best for them. I have experience tutoring students from the elementary school level through the college level. I enjoy tutoring the sciences, and I'm looking forward to explaining science topics to students and helping them realize their full academic potential. In my free time, I enjoy hiking with my dog and cooking.

NicholasI went to American University to earn a bachelor's degree in justice, law, and society. I also earned in applied physics minor. I love both physics and criminal justice, and I've done research and academic papers for both subjects. I also have strong language abilities, and I'm skilled with Spanish and have experience studying Latin, ancient Greek, and Italian. In addition to this, I worked with students with various learning disabilities including dyslexia, ADHD, and ADD. I have ADHD myself, so I had to develop my own techniques to help myself stay focused and learn effectively. I can share my experiences and help students find things that work for them. When I have some free time, I like to watch movies, play video games, read comic books, explore the city, cook, and read.

HarveyAlthough I have over thirty years of experience in the banking industry, I am now interested in being a tutor. I have a passion for working with students who have trouble learning. My daughter has been the inspiration behind this career change. She was homeschooled for a few years because she had difficulties learning. Now she is doing well and I want to share what I have learned helping her with other students. I have been able to take these experiences and help others and want to continue to do so. I would love to work with people who have diagnosed problems, such as dyslexia. I strongly believe that to be an effective tutor, you must also mentor your students. People don't just want a teacher; they want their tutor to take the time to get to know them and their struggles. I strive to do this and to give them a safe environment to share their creativity. Basic skills are not the only things that need to be honed in on. Students should also be taught to use their creativity and to be confident. I am a very patient person who looks forward to meeting new people.
