I have been a teaching assistant at the University of Connecticut for two years. I have taught classes in biology and biochemistry with average class sizes of about 20 students. I hold office hours for these classes and I always encourage my students to contact me for one-on-one tutoring if there are materials that they do not quite understand. In cases where the students are having a hard time understanding a complex problem, I like to make simple connections with material they might have seen elsewhere (like analogies) and slowly build up to address the problem. In cases where the student was completely at a loss, I would often go over the very basics very thoroughly and provide examples such that the student will have some hands-on experience instead of just me lecturing. It is a personal belief that learning is like building a skyscraper, you can't expect to build a tower of knowledge without a very stable base (or a very solid understanding of the basics) for which to build upon.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chess

I was a member of my high school chess team that won the Regional Championship our senior year and have remained an avid player since.

Swimming

I have been swimming since I was a child and was a member of my high school swim team. Afterward, I passed the test to become a lifeguard at the local YMCA and was also approved for CPR. I was part of my high school swim team for all four years, swimming mostly the 200M and 500M distances and then moving on to the individual medleys.
