University of Virginia (Cognitive Science)
My love for teaching stems from my desire to learn. I am currently a rising second year student at the University of Virginia and I have no desire to stop learning once I graduate. I have never tutored with a site before, but I have previously tutored. In high school, I ran a tutoring club for 2 years, which led the students to great class results. During my senior year, I also tutored a family friend and helped him to pass his geometry class.
I specialize in tutoring math, the sciences, and Spanish. My goal for each session is to ensure that the student has learned something new in that particular subject. Whether it be working with a textbook or simply using online problems, I will find a way to help the student. If the student is having a particularly difficult time with a topic, then I will assign problems that I feel will provide the most help.
Since I am a University student, I understand how important a quiet work environment is. I think the best places to work would be the University library, a coffee shop, or a quiet place that you all have in mind.
I look forward to meeting you! Thank you for your consideration.
For me, math has always been a passion. I have always been driven to learn new ways of solving problems and mastering the "tried and true" methods. One of my best assets is that I work and work to ensure the student understands exactly what I mean when I say something; this is because, especially with math, it is common for the student to misunderstand the professor and then become frustrated later. I also have the ability to create problems on the spot for extra practice.
Spanish is a great love of mine. I am by no means fluent in the language, not yet. But I have a great understanding of the grammar. Through high school and college, I have taken about 5 years of classes in Spanish and know that practice is the key to understanding. It is repetitive, yes, but practicing conjugations and forming sentences is the best method to learn, and I can provide problems that relate to whatever level the student is in.
In the summer I have a very open schedule, as I only have one class that ends no later than 2 PM. I look forward to hearing from you and hope you contact me with any questions you may have.

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.
