1. Temple University (Neuroscience)
I am a 2014 graduate of Temple University with my Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience. When it came to helping out my friends and fellow classmates with math, I never considered myself as a tutor. It has only been recently that I have been told to consider this seriously. I started to really believe in my capabilities these last few months when the College Algebra students I have been helping scored A's and B's on their last few exams and quizzes. So I started to look into a few more opportunities and here I am!
I am heading back to school this summer to work towards a Master in Nursing, and in working towards a position in the health care community I naturally enjoy the one-on-one interaction I can have with an individual, and it is a great pleasure for me to help out in anyway that I can. I enjoy using my white board with colorful markers, and if you are the type of learner I am I enjoy detailed steps with explanations! It is important to understand everything that the question is asking you, that only makes you more confident moving forward. Even if a question requires one to review the material in the previous section before hand it is of utmost importance to do so.
I believe that patience is key. Growing up I was rubbish at math, and I had so many teachers that seemed to get very frustrated with me and that in turn would knock my confidence down. If it wasn't for the select few I wouldn't be where I am at today. I am happy to say I enjoy math!
Students also need to feel that mistakes are going to happen, and actually great for the learning process. They need to see that teachers are human, and even they can make mistakes. I have found that admitting out loud when "I need to think about a problem" makes a more comfortable learning situation for the individual.
I want to be as resourceful as possible, so any input from the students and parents about ideas in lessons and approaches are appreciated!

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.
