Arpi Grigorian is currently working as an undergraduate research assistant at NIST [National Institute of Standards and Technology]. She is taking this Fall semester off to focus on research, and will be a senior physics major at CU Boulder when she resumes her studies in Spring 2015.

She has a year of experience tutoring grade school students, and knows that the biggest challenge to learning physics is the difficulty of keeping track of all the math and missing the core concept. She breaks down the problem to make it as easy as possible, and then works with the student step by step to solve it. She loves teaching science and math, and will work her hardest to make sure the student understands the concepts.

Also some fun facts: The lab group she id working with at NIST specializes in telescope detectors, most notably to detect the Cosmic Background Radiation.

James has over two years of tutoring experience in both Arabic and Persian (Farsi) languages, working as a registered tutor through  for the University of Colorado. He has also been a freelance Arabic and Persian (Farsi) language teacher, working with students of all ages, learning styles, and language proficiencies. 

James has nearly five years of formal language training in Persian (Farsi), including two intensive immersion programs and one year working as a volunteer teaching assistant for the Persian (Farsi) language classes at the University of Colorado. 

James has also received three years of formal Arabic training, specializes in Modern Standard Arabic grammar, and is knowledgeable of both the Egyptian and Levantine dialects of Arabic. 

As a non-native speaker of both languages, James completed all three levels of Persian and Arabic at the University of Colorado with a 4.0 GPA, giving him a unique insight into how challenging it can be for a non-native speaker to pick up one or both of these complex languages - something that a native speaker may not be able to offer.

James graduated from CU in May 2014 with his Bachelor's Degree in International Affairs and a certificate in Middle East and Islamic Studies. He graduated summa cum laude and received multiple awards for his research conducted in both Persian and Arabic, and his writing on democratization and political theory in Iran.

He plans to pursue a PhD in Middle East and Islamic Studies in the fall of 2015, continuing to use Arabic and Persian to teach and conduct detailed research for many years to come.

Jameson is a Senior Math major at CU. His experience includes being a Learning Assistant in Calculus I in the Fall of 2012 and over a year tutoring with the Buff Tutor program, as well as helping countless other students in Math and Physics. Although his major doesn't show any reason to take Physics or Chemistry, he recently took Organic Chemistry and has taken 3 courses beyond entry level Physics. He understands that sometimes the best person to teach the material is a student who just went through the course. Still an undergrad, Jameson recognizes that this is a great opportunity to help his fellow students in a way that graduate students and professors wouldn't be able to.

Jeff is a senior undergraduate studying Aerospace Engineering Sciences. He has taken the full range of calculus courses, as well as additional math courses, through the Applied Math department. He as also been hired as a Learning Assistant for Applied Math Calculus Workgroup courses on the Calc 1, Calc 2, and Calc 3 levels. In these workgroups, he not only helped students with difficult problems, but also engaged students through conceptual questions designed to help understand calculus topics on more than just a superficial "plug-and-chug" level. He loves math, space, and teaching!

Jeff prefers to meet on campus (especially in the Engineering Center), but is definitely willing to meet in other areas around Boulder too.

His schedule is a bit tight right now (because he is working other jobs), but he has numerous gaps between classes on weekdays, and will become much more available for evening sessions in the next month or so.

John attended Ball State University for the first two years of his undergraduate education in order to pursue a degree in architecture; however, he eventually decided to follow his passion for English literature.  Consequently, he graduated cum laude in May 2012 from Indiana University with his Bachelor of Arts in English literature, coupled with a minor in history.  Currently John is in his second year of graduate school here at the University of Colorado-Boulder where he is pursuing his Masters degree in English literature. 

John possesses teaching experience; he served as TA for two recitation sections during the spring of 2014 for the Shakespeare for Non-Majors course. This experience ensures that he is adept at tailoring his instruction to a multitude of learning styles, proven through his teaching evaluations.  Even though John’s area of expertise rests in English literature, his passion for history and architecture demonstrates that no matter what discipline a student may specialize in, the ability to express one’s ideas coherently and persuasively through writing often is a deciding factor in finding success.  Therefore, it is his aim to help those students seeking to improve their writing skills regardless of the specific discipline, course material, or any apprehension a student may possess regarding their writing capability.
