Throughout grade school I have helped my friends and families with any and all kinds of course work. I have tutored my professor's friend's teenage son in high school coursework. I enjoy guiding students through the learning process and I understand the need to be patient and to work with a student until they realize their own "Aha!" moment.

Science Graduate Researcher Passionate About Student Success
Avg response < 4 hrs
I teach hundreds of students every semester. With degrees in physics and mathematics, and minors in biology and computer science, I became an interdisciplinary science graduate student at Arizona State University (ASU), where I completed a Master's Degree in Bio-Electrical Engineering. I seek to undo the damage and negative effects students often suffer/endure from poor teaching practices. I strive to replace this distaste with a passion for the fundamentals of the subjects, just as a long line of teachers have done for me. I am constantly researching new ways, and inventing new tools, to teach. Currently, I am writing a book that will make these creative teaching ideas available and inspire further progression in education. Please contact me for professional, high-quality, state of the art tutoring. My extensive background knowledge of how language, art, and science intertwine allows me to appropriately teach children or college graduate students. Here is a brief summary of my teaching experience: 1. Private Math, Science, Language, and Writing instructor and tutor: 14+ years. 2. Over the past 14 years I've developed a specialty helping students with disabilities and learning disorders, most especially (I have extensive experience with) ADHD, but also Dyslexia, Anxiety, Autism, Spectrum Disorders, OCD, OCPD, PTSD, Vision Impairment, and others. 3. Math & Science Tutor Staff: (a) 6 months as a volunteer in a Chandler-Gilbert Community College (CGCC) tutoring center. (b) One year as an employee in CGCC tutoring center. 4. Mentor for Wildcat Middle School 8th Grade Science Classes. 5. Physics Student Mentor - I assisted incoming freshmen students with their transition to the University of Arizona (UA) physics department. 6. Physics Factory Assistant - Helped UA math professor perform exciting science demonstrations and experiments for visiting junior high students. 7. Physics Undergraduate Council - I assist with the retention of UA physics undergrads by offering support and guidance. Represent the interests and needs of these students when meeting with the department head and faculty. 8. My family used to run a summer school for kids. As a teenager, I was a (fun) math teacher for 3 months every summer! 9. I come from a long line of teachers. My mother, both of her parents, and their parents dedicated their lives to education and teaching. 10. I have also tutored foreign students (Italian, Indian, Vietnamese, Chinese, Spanish) in English pronunciation, writing, accent reduction, et cetera. 11. Graduate Teaching Associate: 3 years. I currently teach hundreds of undergraduate students each semester at Arizona State University, while working on a book about science education, with aspirations to become a college teacher and educator.

Tutoring Especially For Home-Schoolers
Avg response < 18 hrs
I have been tutoring children since 1980. I love doing it and have had a lot of success teaching children. I enjoy teaching and I want my students to enjoy our lessons too. I have a great deal of respect for homeschooling and prefer tutoring those who are home-schooled. I am very good with shy or nervous children. I'm also good with children who have become discouraged and dislike doing schoolwork. I have 11 students I'm tutoring now, from my youngest student who is 4 years old, up to one who is 15 years old (I've been helping the 15-year-old since he was 10), and one adult guitar students. My after-school hours and weekends are quite full now, so I'd like to get homeschooling students or children I can work with during the day some other way.

I am a certified 2nd grade teacher. I resigned from teaching December 2016 to spend more time with my family, and increase my daughter's confidence in her academic abilities! I have taught kindergarten through 2nd grade for the past 14 years. I have tutored 2nd and 3rd graders as well. On initial tutoring appointment, I assess student on grade level to see their needs. The following appointments will involve intensive, differentiated instruction, structured to the needs of your child. Periodically (depending on tutoring schedule) students will be given short, formative assessments. The purpose of these are not to "grade" your child. The data from these assessments will give given to view student growth. Students take part in their goals and progress by graphing data in Data Notebook. The notebook will be shared with the parents on an ongoing basis.

Math Tutor Available
Avg response < 7 hrs
I have a BS in Biological Sciences from Stanford University, and have always enjoyed learning and teaching math and science. I have tutored on and off informally and formally since I was in junior high myself, when I used to help my younger sister and my classmates with their math questions. I have tutored math and a variety of other subjects part-time professionally off and on, since 1992, working with elementary through high school, as well as some community college and adult students. I taught middle school math from '01-'09, middle school science from '03-'07, elementary science from '02-'05, and middle school ESL, from '01-'02. I am known for being very approachable, and for making math accessible to students who have difficulties. I enjoy breaking down concepts into understandable bites, and asking students questions that let them discover just how much they really do know (often they know a lot more than they realize), and helping them to fill in the gaps that are impeding their progress and/or enjoyment in math. I take every opportunity to get as much professional development and to find useful math and science teaching resources as possible.
