What's up! My name is Logan and I am a sophomore at the University of Pennsylvania with over a hundred hours of tutoring experience. I began volunteer tutoring way back when I was in middle school. By the time I was in high school, I realized I had a knack for helping students build conceptual and functional understanding of material, which is the type of understanding that fosters the most academic success and promise for growth. I was put in charge of my high school's peer tutoring program, ran it for three years, and racked up over 100 hours of experience, mostly working with Chemistry and Math, although my favorite subject is Physics. Here are some testimonials from students with whom I worked in high school:
"Logan began tutoring me in 2010 for AP Chemistry. It was an invaluable experience that not only helped me during my time in high school AP Chemistry, but carried over into my college chemistry course. He explained concepts in terms that I could understand, with the goal of our sessions being to understand and apply as opposed to simply memorizing. I had a great experience. His patience was unbelievable and was instrumental in my success."
"Logan is one of those kids that just has it. He's naturally smart and very gifted... He created a really relaxed environment in which I felt comfortable because that's just who Logan is- a sweet, relaxed guy, who can befriend anyone. He broke the practice problems down step by step and explained how he understood them. He hadn't just learned the material for the exams, but had truly developed a deep understanding for Chemistry and the concepts behind, what initially seemed to me, to be meaningless equations. He was so passionate about the subject, as he is many subjects because he is so eager to learn and genuinely loves academics. Three hours and a box of fudgesicles later, I felt prepared for the AP Chem exam and confident in my test taking abilities because Logan helped me out."
"I found that Algebra 1 was a subject I struggled with, and I was failing to pass the class. Logan May was not only a friend and a teammate to me, but also a very bright student who took his free time to help me pass Algebra 1. He explained the procedures of the equations I was having trouble with, and made each one very clear to me. Without Logan, I would be repeating Algebra 1, and would not have been accepted back to Wyoming Seminary, the college prep school I attend. If there is one person that really knows how to teach, and explain any subject, it's Logan."
