" Ever since I have been tutoring Math, Chemistry and standardized tests. Tutoring is a pleasure to me, I particularly enjoy helping students reach that 'aha' moment, where they gain an insight into a particular concept. As of January 2012 I have tutored more than 20 students for a total of nearly 500 hours. In the future I will be attending graduate school in Chemistry, and will later continue as an educator, hopefully on the university level.."

Yet regardless of however a child is 'labeled' I believe all children, with the right amount of motivation and interest, can be given tools that will improve their academic performance. The onus is on having a good teacher who has a tool kit full of methods and who can be creative in approach!! ." ...

" I’ve stayed because of the vibe of excitement and competition in the city. It truly does push you to be your best. In my free time, I enjoy exploring the ever-changing NYC landscape, stumbling about the internet learning whatever it has to teach me, studying politics both as an art and a science, as well as my guilty pleasure of watching the NFL and the occasional Newcastle game. As an HIV vaccine researcher for several years, I was taught many obscure facts and techniques."

"I started tutoring again here in New York--and began applying to grad school in education--because I had come to miss these joys. Again, my main subject area is math, but I have a strong background in a wide array of other fields and, having worked two years writing workbooks for the test, am particularly well qualified for tutoring for the SAT.
