Indiana University (Geography minor Math)
When I taught Geology labs at Temple University, many of the students were very interested in the work I had done with the US Geological Survey in various locations throughout the country. It was enjoyable to be able to relay applicable professional experience in to various lab experiments we were doing.
While teaching GED prep classes at a neighborhood library in Philadelphia, it was quite a unique experience in that the students were quite engaged and eager to earn their high school diplomas.
I had considered majoring in math or physics until my junior year at Indiana University, but working a few internships (Brown County State Park and USGS Indianapolis) in the field steered me toward the earth sciences. My first day of teaching geology labs, I saw a connection between calculus and some of the equations we were using (the equations were derivatives/integrals of each other), so I demonstrated this connection. Some students were very interested, while others were fearful of the math.
Though both of my experience teaching were with classes from 10 to 25 students, I often got visits during my office hours asking for further explanation of various topics. These one on one interactions helped me to improve on providing better explanations during class and develop relationships with the individual students.

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.
