...I am currently enrolled as a master's student in environmental science. While I taught, I also privately tutored in biology and chemistry at the collegiate undergraduate level. The reason I got into education is the same reason I got out of it-I really love seeing that light on a child's face when they finally "get" a concept.

...My name is Darius, but you can call me Dominic. I became a tutor because I love getting excited about subject material. For me, nothing is more fun than leaving class and seeing what I just learned in action around me.

...Critical thinking is not easy. It requires a confidence not every student has to be able to put forth ideas with the knowledge that often they will be wrong, they will fail. However, it also teaches that if you continue to work at the problem and collaborate well with others you can often arrive at solution to very difficult problems, and these is a great sense of joy in being able to do so.

...Also, I might be able to suggest a few more similar problems for them to work on aside from those assigned in class. I am not here to do the homework for the student but to try to explain in a different way what the instructor might be trying to explain. I might even try to sit in on a class or two to get the drift of how the instructor teaches.

...Freeing time and effort for solving harder questions and time management are key to later university exams. Science subjects in standardized tests focus on comprehension and parsing out important facts from a host of clues. Helping students recognize key words, phrases, and eliminating bad answers are key skills I like to ingrain early.
