Some subjects can feel boring and monotonous, and that is why my teaching technique allows my students to enjoy the subject matter. I want my students to grasp the importance of an education, so I create fun and entertaining lessons for them. I engage in a friendly manner, and subtly explain the information in way that enhances their learning capability. Students should expect a manageable course load that involves concepts of their homework assignments, upcoming quizzes, and final examinations. Additionally, I tend to spontaneously create questions and problems to verify their level of comprehension and critical thinking. Over a period of time, they will incrementally learn how to deal with new ideas. My students will master their work and gain the strength and motivation to tackle their academic challenges. I strive to enlighten people, not merely to regurgitate dry information.
Studying can be excruciating for some people-- we have all been there. It's okay to stumble sometimes. Many students have instructors, who may be brilliant in their field but lack the interpersonal capacity to teach well. I empower my students to overcome academic hurdles by teaching them the implicit art of approaching a problem. Whether it involves mathematical equations, English grammar, or life and physical sciences, there always exists an attainable solution. My communication skills enable me to convey information in a smooth and comprehensible manner. I use real-life examples and simple analogies to express connections and key concepts. I gauge my techniques and language to move my students toward thinking independently and critically. Expression of the subject matter is the key to learning effectively.

I am eager and equally interested in applying to offer my skill. With the academic and leadership qualities that you are looking for, I believe I would be able to contribute to the objectives.
I am presently enrolled in New York Institute of Technology as a junior in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and hopefully I will complete my bachelors by May 2015. I am thrilled to know that you are looking for a tutor and I feel that this is the perfect platform for me.
As a result of my previous work experience in the Learning Center in my college for the last couple of years, I believe I am well equipped with not only academic qualifications but also experience of working in an energetic and dynamic environment. I have been also serving for a tutoring Center, Math Matters and very much familiar with the new Common Core Curriculum. I am also familiar with Regions Curriculum I have also served as a Supplemental Instructor for Physics that adds to my leadership abilities.
An opportunity to be able to work will prove to be mutually beneficial. While I will be able to gain further experience about the real-world applications of teaching, I believe that will also be a great addition to the working teams and contribute to the your goals and objectives.
I am very enthusiastic about this opportunity and believe will be worthwhile for us to meet. I have enclosed my resume and would gladly answer any further. Please feel free to contact TakeLessons using the details mentioned.

~ I am a Millennium Academy graduate who breaks down all of the complexities that are found throughout math and science. I have also taught many middle-school children math and science overseas and participated in several volunteer mentoring programs throughout my community.
I personally love geometry, because it is one of the easiest, but yet most challenging to students. I am patient and understanding, because I have worked with a diversity of people over the span of 16 countries throughout the world, as well as contributing to an 'A' that my doctoral student earned in her statistics assignment. I am majoring in mechanical engineering, so naturally, I maintain an exemplary study ethic that inspires my students to achieve more.
All in all, I bring results. I know how to relate to my students, by incorporating some of the things that they like (sports, hobbies, music, etc...) into their most challenging courses in order for them to eventually foster a passion for them. I make a conscious effort to work at each student's own paste, essentially building up on their weak points and refining their strong ones. I make sure I decompose enigmatic topics into components the can be more easily gestated by my students, effectively increasing their grades and giving them self-confidence and optimism for their future of academic pursuit. I guarantee commitment, punctuality, and a passion for training my students to be the best.
I am also freshman in college who loves sharing his knowledge with others. I was always the kid in class who was always trying to make all of the rest understand. In my junior year, I tutored Seniors math for their ACT test. I scored a 30 myself. Their scores improved by huge margins in a fortnight due to their devotion to my tutoring methods. Although I am young, I am also well learned. I have been to over 16 countries in the world, including France, the UK and even Djibouti in the horn of Africa. As a result of these extended expeditions, I can fluently speak French and can partially speak Spanish. I am well versed in math and in the natural sciences (Physics, Chemistry and Biology) as well, and provide tutoring services in those fields. I have completed AP Calculus in my senior year, and I have completed Chemistry II, Physics II and Biology II(I also tutor in those fields, as well as French) during my voyages. I have also been to winner of many STEM-related competitions, by demonstrating exemplary leadership qualities and brainstorming up blue-sky ideas. I am a Mental-math prodigy and a great tutor, and I am the paragon of patience and understanding. Watch as you astound yourself by rapidly taking the reins in your previously 'toughest' courses. ~
As I mentioned above, I have traveled to many places in the world. Between those places I've met a plethora of people who fostered vast disparities in personality, opinion, socio-political viewpoints and even language. Nevertheless, they all shared one common similarity: they all had potential. Many of the great thinkers in our textbooks were not born with the abilities that we so vividly depict them with. Many of them had innate talents and potentials that were honed by individuals. These 'Individuals' unveiled the hidden talents of these prestigious polymaths, which paved the way to their memorial legacies. In its most fundamental definition, these 'individuals' were tutors. Like a hammer and anvil to steel, they molded these seemingly innocuous characters to be the Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton and George Washington Carver, we all know so well. They sat on the shoulders of Giants per se. And I intend to elevate my students to those shoulders.

If your child is taking Calculus this year and seems to be having a difficult time with it, she might be showing signs of frustration that have you concerned. Calculus is one of the more challenging math classes, and it's crucial to have a good grasp of the concepts each step along the way. The moment she doesn't understand something and get clarification from her teacher, the problems begin. Calculus might be challenging, but there is something you can do to give her a hand. Calculus tutoring from TakeLessons is a great option for anyone who is struggling with this hard, but important math course.
students, they may have forgotten a few of those concepts, like the information they learned in algebra. Understanding algebraic equations is essential, and your child's Calculus tutoring program will help to re-establish those important concepts. One-on-one Calculus tutoring gives your child a competitive edge and helps to ensure that she won't be left behind the rest of her class. Because the more advanced Calculus concepts build upon those that are learned earlier in the year, working with a tutor will keep them fresh in your child's mind.
