Nathaniel S.

I'm a second-year student at the University of Chicago, majoring in English and philosophy. My GPA is currently a 3.9. After college I plan on either going to law school (in the hopes of going into legal theory at a university or practicing constitutional law) or graduate school for philosophy. Right now much of my time is devoted to helping organize Voices from North Korea, a talk bringing two North Korean refugees to campus to discuss their experiences and ways to help fight human rights abuses. In high school I volunteered with the TAP program, focusing on teaching elementary- and middle-school level math. I was a freelance tutor during the summer of 2013, teaching high-school level math and test prep for the SAT and ACT on an individual level with students. Theoretical understanding is important to me. I want students to be able to know why their answer is right, not just to produce the right answer. I find that not only is this approach more enriching, it also actually makes the process easier--it makes rote memorization less important, in favor of a basic grasp of concepts.Fun Facts: I'm a musician who likes exploring all kinds of music on all kinds of instruments (I've been playing around with the melodica recently). I also write poetry and short fiction, and have been published in my school's literary magazine. I have a twin brother, but have never seriously considered trying to switch identities with him.

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
