Michelle "...In addition to teaching, over the last five years, I have served as a Mentor to youth and college students.

While teaching students the skills they need to succeed, I help students to gain confidence in their abilities, and to see their own potential..."
Lillian "...I completed my undergraduate degree in 2013 at Columbia University, where I majored in English and Biology.

Christin "I have a Master of Science degree in Optics and am working on a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, so it's not surprising that my favorite subjects to tutor are Physics and Math! I enjoy helping my clients increase their confidence as they improve their skills. I always make an effort to find applications that are interesting and relevant; I believe that math and science knowledge benefits everyone, even those who aren't pursuing careers in STEM fields. My other interests include in-line skating, reading, music (I play French horn and harp), knitting, and container gardening.."
Adam "...So in my spare time, I want to continue connecting to students by tutoring various subjects from math to English to test prep. As for test prep, I believe that most standardized tests don’t test your ability in their stated subjects as much as they do your ability to take those tests. Therefore, it is critically important to teach not just the basic skills, but the ability to succeed on the test as well..."

Each student has their own path of least resistance, and helping them find the best way to understand a particular subject paves the way for future excellence in all areas of learning..."
Kevin "...I think I excel at giving students new ways to think about certain problems which may give them a better understanding of the material. I don't feel like it has been a productive session unless I come away having learned something as well. In my spare time, I am an avid sports fan and a seasoned fantasy sports player..."
Michael "...Showing students how cool (even fun!) learning certain subjects can be because of how it relates to them is an irreplaceable tool to get them interested in actually learning something, instead of simply "getting by" by cramming the night before. I do my absolute best to provide a positive, fun, engaging experience for students which focuses on their potential to succeed by showing them how much they have already accomplished to give them confidence to tackle new obstacles. Though my passion is biology and I tutor all levels, I am also skilled at English and writing and love to edit and help craft essays..."
