"Some subjects/topics can be difficult but(sometimes) looking at the problem in a different way makes the material clearer and easier. My basic learning and teaching philosophy has always been that the best way to handle difficult material is to take your head off the page and to try to reframe the question in a different way. Coming to a problem - whether it be an essay, a math question, or a writing exercise - with a different mind frame can help make learning fun and rewarding. I have over five years experience tutoring both groups and individuals and have taught all ages (my youngest student was 5 years old and my oldest student was 71!)." ...

"I am a recent graduate of Princeton University (2011), who originally hails from Florida. In high school, I was a part of the International Baccalaureate program, where I pursued my interests in science, and participated in Varsity Rowing. My never ending interest in science led me to pursue a degree in Molecular Biology at Princeton with a premedical science focus. I am currently working as a Research Assistant at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. While my greatest passion is the sciences, from a very young age I have been a very avid reader and have enjoyed writing." ...

"I am currently pursuing my Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering from NYU-Poly, but spend most of my free time either inside reading or outside gardening and running. When I am not busy with school or leisure, I will be helping you or your child grasp a difficult subject or improve a test score. I encourage my students to talk me through their thought process when tackling a problem, so that I can pinpoint exactly what is preventing them from arriving at the right solution. While getting the right answer is important in life, and especially on tests, my time at MIT and NYU Poly has taught me that fostering the analytical thinking skills ...

"Teaching is my blood; both my mother and grandmother were teachers. There's nothing that makes me happier than that "aha!" moment - when my student understands something he/she would not have without my help. When my sisters and I came home from our school in the Bronx we had to complete "Mom's homework" after our own schoolwork as a matter of course. "Mom's homework" was our way into the best private schools in the northeast. My own children - my autistic son and my intellectually gifted daughter - did "Mom's homework" as well, which enabled them to reach their own intellectual bests. I believe ...
