Nathan H.

Currently I am a student at Southern Methodist University studying mechanical engineering, which has given me an opportunity to understand physics, problem solving, and business. The rest of my time is spent playing music, tinkering with gadgets and technology, making art and hanging out with friends. After college, I plan to attend film school and study music with aspirations of becoming a film director. This being the first paid tutoring I have ever taken part in, my tutoring experience ranges from helping friends with math homework, to teaching english and history at "Si, Puedes!," an after school program for less fortunate public school students. However, the majority of my study skills and knowledge that I have to offer comes from a lifelong struggle with a learning disability. In first grade I was diagnosed with ADHD and ever since as I continued through school, classes got harder and homework became more frustrating. Overcoming my disability forced me fully internalize the constant yet rewarding struggle that learning is and to cope by perfecting my learning strategies to keep up with my peers. My tutoring philosophy is deeply rooted in the belief that learning isn't merely collecting facts, remembering dates, or memorizing formulas, but rather the pursuit to build a foundation of knowledge to better understand the world. More than most people, I genuinely understand how difficult learning can be and to this day its harder than pulling teeth to get me to start writing a paper. However, I believe the key to learning is to find a way to enjoy it, and many times that comes from looking at homework from another perspective. When I tutor math, I sometimes suggest to the student to think of math as another language since math and all sciences in essence are ways to precisely describe our physical world. History is a way of understanding peoples incentives and english provides a medium to share ideas with great minds. This isn't a formula to which I teach by and varies greatly from student to student. For every person and every mind, there is a different way to learn and once a student finds a way to enjoy their subject, the frustrations of learning become trivial. The way I approach tutoring is not to just simply teach the material presented, but to develop study strategies and look at homework in a different light. "If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away." ~Henry David ThoreauFun Facts: I am simply an opportunist who fell in love with the challenge learning at a young age. My love of physics drew me into engineering, however I still continue to play saxophone and guitar and produce my own short films. I've backpacked alone across europe, acted, served the homeless, competed in writing competitions, and even was a member of the FFA.

Frog Tutoring says

In 2009, Roland Omene, a TCU bio-chemistry graduate, founded Frog Tutoring. The company originated in Fort Worth, TX, and is quickly expanding to cities all over the country. Frog Tutoring was founded under the belief that all students deserve tutoring regardless of age. We believe the first step in successful tutoring is finding the “right” tutor. That is why we only hire the top students and graduates from local colleges in the area. Each one of our well-trained tutors specializes in at least one area of expertise and is eager to aid in the academic success of the students they tutor. Frog Tutors are not just intelligent individuals, but role models who inspire their students to achieve success both academically and personally. - See more at: http://frogtutoring.com/about_us#sthash.ov47ISCO.dpuf
