PAULA WONG

I started tutoring when I was a sophomore in high school. I fell in love with the job's challenges and rewards and in 2005, inGenius! was born. Tutoring is my full time passion, and I have worked with more than 40 kids in the past three years in all levels of math and Spanish. Most of my students come from College Park, where I went to high school, so I am very familiar with the teachers, routines, and the material that is taught. My job is more than imparting knowledge; I also instill confidence and act as a mentor who has 'been there and done that' on the college track.

DAVID MURPHY

I started tutoring math during my junior year of high school, but my passion for teaching came much earlier. I was lucky enough to be inspired by a handful of passionate teachers that taught me as much about leading a positive, impactful life as they did English, History, and Math. I plan to formally pass on their teachings after I get my teaching credentials in the next couple of years. Growing up, my strength was Math and my Achilles' heel was Language Arts, but I enjoyed the challenge of succeeding at something that didn't come readily. Since then, I've reversed the two and am now finishing up a BA degree in English with a long term goal of obtaining a Master's degree in English or Linguistics. I'd like to help my students do the same, training their weaknesses into their greatest strengths through proper study techniques and guidance.

ANTHONY K. ADAMS

I started tutoring in graduate school to supplement my teaching assistantship. I was surprised to find that I enjoyed teaching and tutoring at least as much as my research. Teaching has been a part of my career ever since and has always been one of the more rewarding parts. After almost 30 years in industry as a Research Scientist and Manufacturing Engineer I am now transitioning into education. In addition to the training I have conducted in industry, I have tutored in chemistry at both college and high school levels. While I always loved Chemistry it did not necessarily come easily to me and I remember what it was like to struggle with new and challenging concepts. I look forward to helping my future students work through their own challenges and achieve their goals.

TIM BURKHART

I began tutoring as a freshman at UC Santa Cruz. I have tutored up to college level calculus, statistics, physics and computer science. Whether tutoring one on one, or directing project teams I have been called upon to help others understand the principles underlying their science and mathematics coursework. Because in mathematics and science concepts build upon one another into more complex concepts, I find that it extremely helpful to break down new concepts into their simplest forms. This helps learners achieve a complete understanding of the topic. The experience of mastering complex math and science topics has been personally rewarding. As a tutor, it is even more satisfying to see others succeed in their own understandings of math and science.
