About Me

Hi, I’m Shiyel, a 4th-year student studying Biological Sciences at Georgia State University. I enjoy tutoring because I have a passion for Science and Math and love to assist others. Throughout my time in college, I have had the opportunity to tutor several of my peers in a variety of subjects. As a result, I learned how to adjust the ways in which I communicate information to my students to match their differing learning styles. I work to effectively communicate concepts to students in a way that they will easily understand. I incorporate a variety of engaging activities whenever possible to keep students entertained while learning. My ultimate goal as a tutor is to see the “I get it now” looks on my students’ faces when they begin to understand a particular concept.

About Me

Hi, I’m Fili. I’ve lived in over four different countries, and I have had the opportunity to tutor both in a civilian and military setting, and to work with a variety of people from all over the world.  As a tutor, I strive to address each student’s unique way of learning by carefully identifying his or her learning style and making necessary adjustments towards achieving that crucial theoretical and practical connection. Students can be sure they’ll receive nothing short of my focused and committed effort towards their success because of my passion for what I do. Ultimately, I believe uncovering the purpose behind any type of learning makes all the difference in anyone’s educational experience, which is why effectively communicating the “why” behind every “what” serves as the central piece in my tutoring strategy.

About Me

I am a wife, mother of one, and grandma of four. I have always had a passion for learning. In my childhood, peers and others would always ask me questions; instead of just giving an answer, I would model how I would perform the task. Over time, facilitating others in their own discoveries of individual academic learning styles became a personal mission. My approach to tutoring is to review and reinforce students’ understanding of basic principles, patience, and strive to understand how my students’ personal experiences inform their learning.

About Me

I took graduate English classes at Case Western Reserve University during my tenure at university libraries. With a background as an academically trained actor, playwright, and published author writing under the nom de plume of Ian Bar, I bring an energetic and proactive approach that engages audiences and readers.

About Me

I began tutoring professionally after entering college, spending one year as a language tutor for Emory University, then pursuing private tutoring. I have worked with students of all ages, from preschool to middle-aged, and in a variety of subjects. I have aided students in preparing for various standardized tests (from the ISEE to the ACT), school subjects, and languages. My students achieve high grades in their school subjects and do very well on standardized tests.

I possess a wealth of knowledge in various areas, but one of the things that I find fun about learning is seeing how subjects connect to the real world. My students find learning and their subject matters a lot more interesting when I start pointing out these connections to them. By nature, I am a very personable and patient and I can work with any kind of student. As such, students really enjoy tutoring sessions with me.

About Me

I have been tutoring students since high school. My teachers came to me to instruct younger students with Algebra. During that time, I also helped them with Latin, German, and Journalism. Over the years, I have added many other subjects to my repertoire, and I have worked with students from many schools and home school groups. I always focus on listening to my students in order to diagnose any problems they may have and better develop their study habits. I always confer with students and parents to set standards for the effort the student needs to make.

Colorado State University – B.S., Project Management (specialization in infrastructure security, hazard mitigation, and environmental concerns)

About Me

I’m an Atlanta native but was born in Germany. I earned my bachelor’s degree from Colorado State University and am currently under review for readmission to Georgia Tech for my master’s degree in environmental engineering.  I speak French, and I am working on improving my German and Spanish. My formal tutoring experience began in Savannah, Georgia with a large Brazilian community and the necessity of English proficiency. English as a second language tutoring is always interesting because you have to find a common language somewhere between English and, in this case, Portuguese and lead the student back the way you came. I’m a huge believer in knowing what level my students are and how they process their material. Tutoring will never have a cookie-cutter formula! I’m not there to be a boss or supervisor, nor a friend: I’m a guide, and every trip has its own requirements.

About Me

Hi! I’m Nosa, a Biology grad student at Georgia State University. Prior to becoming a grad student, I took up teaching Biology, discovered I had a flare for it and ended up teaching 12th grade Biology for three years. I am currently working with the GSU Biobus fellowship whose primary goal is engaging young minds in the Sciences and this has been a superb learning experience for me. I believe Biology to be a practical Science that’s easily correlated to the human life experience and I will constantly strive to make learning as interesting as possible.

About Me

My name is Alice and I am about to graduate from Emory University with a B.S. in Biology and minor in Dance and Movement Studies. As a tutor, I work to develop critical and analytical thinking skills with my students. I believe it is crucial to teach a thorough understanding of the material rather than formulaic memorization which will not benefit them in the future. I am creative and flexible in my approach – I pay careful attention to the ways my students learn and then utilize their skills to help them succeed. In addition to working on school material, I also strive to instill strong organizational and time management skills in my students. I am patient and friendly but firm enough to keep my students focused and productive!

I am an adjunct professor with teaching experience in the university and technical college systems.
