Kennesaw State University – B.S. Mathematics
Hi, I’m Seline! I got my bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from Kennesaw State University. During my college study, I worked at Science and Math Academic Resource and Tutoring Center at KSU for two and half years. I also worked as a Peer Learning Assistant and Supplemental Instruction(SI) Leader while I studied at KSU, assisting in lecture and computer-based classrooms and holding my own tutoring sessions to a group of students. During this time, I gathered insights into course content and the instructional methods in use. I enjoy working with my students, helping them improve their math grades and the interest towards the subject. I have
I enjoy working with my students, helping them improve their math grades, and helping them find an interest in the subject. I have great patience and can explain concepts in detail. I have developed little “tricks” that has helped me a lot with my math studies, and I love to share my insights with my students who will benefit from these easier techniques for solving problems. I realize the reason that some students have difficulty with a certain subject because their minds tell them that they can’t do it. My strategy and ultimate goal is making my students feel confident in their ability to understand the subject instead of fearing it. Seeing my students succeed is the greatest part of being a tutor.

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.

Emory University – B.A., Latin
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.

University of Georgia – B.A., Journalism
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.

I am pursuing my Master’s at Georgia State University and am also a graduate research assistant. I tutored peers in high school in Algebra, Spanish, and Writing, and had multiple leadership roles during my undergraduate years in which I constantly worked with youth. I enjoy helping others learn in a fun, productive, and effective way!

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

Emory University – B.A., Human Health
Hello, my name is Monique. I am currently a junior at Emory University pursuing a degree in Human Health. My academic background includes a wide range of disciplines, especially in the maths and sciences. I have taught students from all different backgrounds, from being a TA in General Chemistry I at Emory to middle school students. I believe it is important to tutor a student in the best way they learn, whether they are an auditory or visual learner, liked to be asked questions, or are the ones asking the questions. I recognize that each student is different and therefore should be taught in the manner that is most efficient for them. I like to incorporate real world examples in my teachings to help the student better understand abstract concepts.

Hi, I’m Chloe! I have been tutoring for four years now and it is something I am truly passionate about. I enjoy learning about my students just as much as I enjoy helping them succeed. It is important for me to learn how to adapt to the student’s personal learning style so that I can better serve them as we progress together. I do not usually take the traditional testing approach when gauging where a student is with the material they are trying to either learn or brush up on. However, I like to have my students apply the knowledge they’ve learned by completing diagrams and projects, participating in academic conversations, and teaching the information back to me. I find that when one is able to teach an idea, they’ve really understood the idea. I always encourage my students to figure out different ways of understanding an idea because it challenges the student to think critically and analyze fully what they are learning. I also tend to relate the material to the students hobbies or favorites because I find that it really grabs the student’s attention. I would consider myself a great tutor because when I tutor, it’s not just a lecture, it is an experience. Every session I conduct is different because I understand that every student has different needs and they learn at different paces. Student success and growth is of the most importance to me and my adaptability certainly helps me aid students become successful.
