My name is Amanda and I am a student at Virginia Tech studying Psychology. I love the subject and find it fascinating. As a tutor I would expect my students to be able to provide notes or books that they are using in the class so that I can help them using the materials they are expected to use. My style is more interactive than structured. I prefer to talk things out so that the student may have a better understanding. I like to ask a lot of questions because I believe that this can hel... ... More
"Passionate about teaching history, writing, and other interests."
I have college degrees in history and environmental journalism, and enjoy communicating and teaching and thus learning even further on both. Currently, I am a communication specialist for two Appalachian Mountains conservation organizations where I write and edit content, create videos and audio products, and manage websites. Before locating to the mountains, I worked for the USGS St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center as a writer and multimedia specialist where I helped produced ... ... More

"Medical Student with a Passion for Teaching"
I am not the typical teacher. I always look for fun and engaging ways to attain success in any endeavor. "I can tell you where to look but not what to see. I can give you wings but can't teach you to fly."
I currently attend medical school at Edward Via - Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine and graduated from Temple University in December 2013 with a BS in Biology and a Distinction in Biology Research. In my free time I enjoy tutoring and helping kids, teenagers, and young adults succe... ... More

"Soon-to-be Medical student and biology lover! "
My name is Najaha. I'm 25 years old and graduated from Saint Olaf College in 2012. I am a stay-at-home mom of a fantastic 3-yea old son. We love to learn our ABC's, 123's and new sing-alongs as he loves to sing! I will be going back to school later this year to pursue my medical doctor degree.
My background is in biology but my concentration was in pre-medicine in undergrad so I have 2+ years of coursework in chemistry as well, including organic chemistry. Because I went to a ... ... More
"Long time biology prof who wants to help!"
I was a professor of biology for many years before moving into academic publishing, where I now spend most of my time developing effective print and online resources in the sciences. The thing I miss most about my professor days are the one on one sessions where I got to witness "the light bulb go on" for students. Hoping this endeavor will re-kindle that!
I have a PhD in Zoology. I spent a decade teaching undergraduates in small classes in biology, genetics, evolution, ecology, animal be... ... More
"History and Religion Nerd "
I have a love for all things history and religion. Not only do I find them terribly interesting, I also find teaching them to be very fun. I'm very laid back and want to bolster your child's inherent love of history by taking the subject in a way few teachers will teach. Not only is history about statistics and dates, but also about the people who lived through these events. Giving a student context about the people being studied gives a backbone to caring about the event, not only for a test... ... More

Brad helped my son with math that he needed to know for the SAT's. He has an insightful way of teaching so that my son understands based on drawings and some theory. My son's question-answer times have improved dramatically!

"STEM Specialist plus Business, Accounting, Investment & Editing"
Having been favored with a BS in mechanical engineering, as well as power plant and laboratory experience, our algebra sessions will impart a "down-to-earth", visual sense of how the graphical equations work. The mx + b relation, for example, has two "knobs" -- "m" is the slope or amplifier/gain knob and "b" is the offset dial. I've enjoyed teaching thousands of sessions since the late 1980's, both in large classes and in the home on a wide variety of topics. Good teachers care about people, are good examples, know their subject, and are terribly interesting. That's what I aim to provide. ... More

My son and I are both so glad that Tara came into our lives. She is a breath of fresh air. She is very tuned in to middle schoolers' needs. Her love for young people and for teaching was evident the first time I talked to her by phone. I am confident in her expertise and ability. I know this is going to be a great school year for my son.
