As a biology undergraduate at IOWA, I focused as much on how professors taught as I did on the content they were teaching. My interest is in meta-cognition and making sense of our world through unique tools of learning: reading, reason, art, music, language. I earned a Bachelor's degree in biology and certification to teach biology and science. I have taught and tutored students with emotional and learning disorders in all subjects, all grades. I am a creative and patient learner, which informs my teaching style. I enjoy meeting students of all ages at their level of understanding and meet easily the challenge of figuring out how to communicate in ways that make sense to the individual. My task as a teacher is, essentially, to believe in the student's ability to learn and to achieve their goals. I ask questions to engage inquiry: students think about their thinking, ask original

Through this I have learned the importance of integrating technology in the classroom and curriculum. I have tutored students in Reading, Writing and Math.

Through the use of hands-on / minds-on activities, cooperative learning, an integrated curriculum and the use of technology I beleive all childern can accomplish this. Tutoring offers student

Teaching at a large, high-performing public high school, I had the opportunity to teach a variety of social science courses. With over four years of in-class and tutoring experience, I obtained extensive knowledge in helping students with their overall writing and test preparation skills. I am very comfortable tutoring both within and outside my past teaching arenas. I am an experienced, passionate, and creative educator with a strong work ethic and communication skills. With over ten years of experience, in various capacities working with students in grades K-12, I am highly motivated and own a very positive attitude. I possess a deep commitment for excellence in the classroom and a strong belief in the value, importance, and individuality of each student. That belief fosters a dedication to try and bring out the best in each and every student I serve.

Throughout my undegraduate education, I tutored people of ages ranging from 6th grade up to the college level in areas ranging from English to math. As a mathematics and physics major, I have a very strong background in both math and science. Now, I am a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Denver also pursuing a PhD in mathematics. So, clearly my strongest area is math, but I have always been an over-achiever in every class that I have taken, and I would feel comfortable tutoring in almost any area. My philosophy of teaching is that a teacher should let students discover solutions in their own way. A teacher is someone who is there just to lead them in the right direction. It is rarely a good thing for a teacher to just provide an answer because often times this is of no help to the student. A teacher must read and understand where a student is coming from in order to ask th

My undergraduate degree in biochemistry provides a solid foudation in the sciences such as Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Biology. The reading and writing skills I learned during my course studies further supplemented my overall skill sets, and make me a well rounded candidate for tutoring. I tutored for Denver Relay, a program mentoring and tutoring at-risk children, grades 6-8, in math, science, reading, writing, mentoring, and life skill development. I enjoy working with children, and in one-on-one settings, I find it the most effective. I do demand alot from my students, especially considering the distractions and challenges children face these days. Emphasis on studying and school work remains my focus. I achieve that by a slow, deliberate teaching of methods that I hope the children find useful in the learning process. I focus on core fundamentals and critical thinking ski

Throughout my undergraduate and graduate studies I have maintained an A average. I have been considered to be very intelligent, professional, and a great leader to my peers during my schooling as well. Although I have only tutored a couple of students during my education, they both did considerably better on their exams after my tutoring. My teaching style is catered to the student. However he/she learns best is the way I will strive to teach them. With no preference, however, I am a very visual educator, as that is how I best learn. I mainly teach with step by step examples, explaining each step's relevance along the way while relating concepts to real world application.

Securing a BS in Political Science was a process that allowed me to examine a comprehensive body of knowledge that deals with the structure of our country, our belief systems, and our government. Having recently graduated from UCDHSC’s MBA program with an Entrepreneurial track, I leave the university equipped with a new set of skills. Most of the curriculum was heavy on the writing side, forcing me to take a hard look at my grammatical skills, but allowing me an opportunity to grow and learn. The volume of written work over the entire MBA Program was massive, but it allowed me to hone my research skills and refine my writing style. Having many integrated collaborative group projects over the duration of my attendance familiarized me to the team member mentality prevalent in our current work environments. I have tutored pupils in English, math, social sciences, physics, mathematics,

I have learned patience and understanding in my trips abroad as well as my time spent with the developmentally disabled here in Colorado. My technique mostly stems from understanding how the student learns and then taking the time to structure lessons that best utilize the particular student's skill set and preferences. I feel that through my experience, I can now meet the needs of almost any learner who possesses a desire to gain knowledge and better themselves. My degree in English served me well in my two periods of teaching in South Korea and Chile. In the former, I taught young children through high school age English in private companies in and around the greater Seoul area. In Chile, I mostly taught adults at the corporate executive level, but also did some tutoring of younger children.

I love working with youth and feel very comfortable teaching math up through calculus. My approach is to teach from the ground up, without any assumptions about prior math knowledge. Having been someone who formerly had difficulty with the subject, I can better understand some of the pitfalls that the student may encounter. I am a recent Economics graduate with a Math minor (more than 30 units of math) I've tutored at Jefferson H.S. in Edgewater CO in 2006 and am a former Marine in the communications field with years of instructional experience.

My style is patient, respectful, fair and adaptive. The goal is to find what works well for the student, not take a rigid one-size-fits-all approach that a classroom may employ. I start looking right away for “What is missing?” I have seen many students who are perfectly capable but struggle because they missed a fundamental building block. Learning is always difficult. This is normal and I make sure students remember that. There is a balance to be struck where the student is pushing hard enough to improve but not so hard that they withdraw from the learning process. I began as an English major then graduated in Physics with honors, cutting edge research experience in both academia and industry, as a published writer, photojournalist and poet. As a result, I can understand why some very intelligent people who perform well with the arts can sometimes be frustrated by the math and sciences
