TereThe majority of my experience has been in elementary education. I have tutored students in grades 2nd through 8th in the United States, Costa Rica, and Mexico. However, I have also worked with college students and adults who want to improve their linguistic skills. I currently tutor several courses, including elementary math, elementary writing, middle school math, elementary science, reading, writing, nutrition, pre-algebra, public speaking, high school English, conversational Spanish, life sciences, phonics, and languages. My personal academic goals include completing my bachelor's degree from the University of Arizona in bilingual education and ESL. My student teaching has helped me to more fully develop my teaching skills and I believe this has been an invaluable boon for the students I tutor. I understand just how truly diverse student populations can be and how important it is to take the time to get to know each student individually. By discovering each student's individual learning styles, strengths, and weaknesses, it is possible to create a program of learning that will be most effective for their specific learning needs. It is my sincere hope that each of my students leaves their time with me not only with a greater understanding of the subject matter but also a life-long love of learning.

MichaelI am currently pursuing my undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering at Johns Hopkins University. My time there has exponentially increased my love and understanding of math and I am eager to share this with my students. My love of teaching developed as a direct result of my father's career in education. I have always had a robust academic schedule which included numerous extracurricular activities such as serving as the anchoring lawyer for my school's mock trial team, captain of my high school football team, and serving as a member of student government. In college I have served as the philanthropy chair for my fraternity. My love of academics allows me to help students in a wide array of subject areas, including algebra 1 & 2, mechanical engineering, geometry, Microsoft Excel and Office, essay editing, English grammar and syntax, calculus, public speaking, marketing, English, business, pre-algebra, calculus 1, pre-calculus, physics, science, thermodynamics, technical writing, technology and computer science, elementary math, elementary reading, elementary science, and elementary writing. I also enjoy helping students prepare for standardized exams such as the SAT and CLEP. I truly love learning and it is my goal to help each of my students develop their own love of learning while helping them reach their academic goals.

JoshuaI love tutoring students in the sciences, mostly because I love the sciences myself. I have an innate curiosity in how the world works, and I find physical systems in chemical reactions fascinating. The biggest reason I tutor, however, is because helping students reach that moment of understanding where everything clicks in their minds is an unsurpassed reward. I'm comfortable working with students from elementary school through college, and I'm excited to help them learn biology, chemistry, elementary science topics, ESL, English, and math. In my free time, I am a helicopter pilot.
