StephenI attended San Diego State University to earn my bachelor's degree in business and hospitality management. I also earned a sociology minor. I then went on to UC - Irvine for my master's degree in public policy. As a tutor, I'm a strong collaborator, and I'm great at building relationships with students. I've experience in a wide array of academic topics, but my specialties are statistics, geometry, algebra, economics, and related subjects, along with essay writing, business writing, history, and government. In addition, I'm strong in the sciences, particularly biology, psychology, geology, physics, and other earth and physical sciences. Education is a huge part of my family. My sister is a high school English teacher, and my brother is a middle school teacher of geometry and algebra. Just like my siblings, I get really enjoy helping students learn better, especially when they are able to overcome learning obstacles to do it. When I have free time, I enjoy playing the guitar, going on to see live music, watching documentaries, riding my snowboard, going scuba diving, and traveling. I'm also interested in science, government, and politics.

BrianI'm a science tutor who is friendly, energetic, and makes use of diverse teaching methodologies. I've had the opportunity to tutor students across wide array of ages and backgrounds, and I've gotten positive evaluations from my students. My experience academically and in the field allows me to take concepts from the textbook and explain with real world applications of them. I'll keep students engaged by creating a laid-back tutoring environment with interesting discussions and collaborative learning. I want my students to be interested in the subject, because when they're having fun and being stimulated they are more likely to learn effectively and be motivated to achieve success. I have a broad academic background in science, and I can help students learn biology, earth science, geology, physical science, environmental science, chemistry, and others. I am also adept at modifying my approach based on the environment and the requirements, including classroom teaching and working in the field to lead a marine ecology course. When I have free time, I like to play volleyball, read, travel, and cook.

AdamI received my undergraduate degree in anthropology and biological sciences from Radford University. During this time I began tutoring high school students and other college students. I also worked as a teaching assistant for several of my undergraduate classes. I tutor a wide variety of subjects, although my specialty is in mathematics and science. Some of the courses I tutor include anatomy, geography, science, biology, geology, social sciences, chemistry, IB biology, English, organic chemistry, IB chemistry, microbiology, physical chemistry, reading, writing, social and cultural anthropology, phonics, world religions, inorganic chemistry, physical science, American and European history, world religions, anatomy and physiology, and public speaking. I also tutor students to help them prepare for specific tests, including the SAT, ACT, and PSAT. I truly believe education is one of the most important things an individual can invest their time in and I try to convey this to my students by offering them an engaging and effective learning environment. I take the time to get to know my students as well as their learning style, academic strengths, and weakness in order to cultivate a creative and interactive presentation of their learning material that is designed specifically for them and their learning needs.
