Nolan "...in Film & New Media and a concentration in Social Research & Public Policy. After tutoring peers in high school and university, I look forward to helping K-8 and high school students catch up, pull ahead, or cover a compelling subject in more depth. I specialize in teaching personalized courses in writing, public speaking, and math. For students studying for the ACT or SAT I offer a preparatory course with measured progress reports as we move through each section..."

Esther "...I studied Romance Languages in the big city, with minors in Psychology and Business, and I also studied abroad in Paris before receiving my Bachelor's degree in 2011. I am currently studying French Literary Translation at NYU and looking forward to visiting those sweet pastry shops of Paris again. I have tutored for about five years now and I enjoy it very much. I took quite a few AP classes in high school, so I understand how fast-paced some classes are and how overwhelming that can be for the student..."
Matthew "...Since graduation, I have worked in Disaster Services with the Red Cross in Long Island. My role combined emergency management, social work, as well as a capacity for empathizing with other people. While I tutor a broad range of subjects, including various sciences and math, I am most passionate about chemistry..."
Kevin "...My greatest tutoring experience came as a Teacher's Aide on Long Island where I worked one-on-one with students who needed a little extra attention in certain subject areas. I am comfortable teaching a number of subjects at a number of different levels, but my absolute favorite subjects are Physics, Chemistry, Math and Biomedical Engineering. The basic sciences are always the most interesting because they govern the behavior of the world around us and it still amazes me how a few simple equations can apply to so many situations, including things we experience every day..."
Tyler "...I really enjoy getting to know my students and I like to bring a sense of humor to my lessons to help keep them engaged. I have tutored students ranging from 3rd grade to seniors in college and I have experience tutoring a variety of subjects, but my favorite subjects to tutor are Economics, LSAT prep, Government, Essay Editing, and Public Speaking. I also find advising on college or law school admissions really rewarding..."

Sung Jae "...I enjoy reading, writing, and solving challenging problems. I have extensive experience tutoring students to take standardized tests, but now I am specializing in the ACT. My tutoring approach, while covering test-taking techniques, will also emphasize the wisdom and skills needed to understand the root of the test questions..."
Herman "...I have done well in these positions, and students have mentioned my clarity, tenacity, and overall helpful nature in their evaluations. As a result of my experiences, I am equipped with a versatile array of teaching methods and can tailor my style towards any particular student. In private tutoring, I would say I come across as approachable and relaxed, but enthusiastic about the subject I am teaching..."
Nick "I graduated in three years from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. There, I earned my BS in Economics, Magna Cum Laude with concentrations in Finance and Statistics. This Fall, I will be moving to the UK to attend the University of Oxford, where I will read for my MSc in Applied Statistics at Jesus College - I'm kind of a data geek! When it comes to tutoring, I am willing to do anything from elementary math to SAT writing...I am not purely quant focused..."

Scott "I thoroughly enjoy math and science, and it shows! I've tutored for over seven years and with a Bachelor's degree and Masters in environmental engineering, four years of industry experience and five years as a professional sailor, I have a lot of appreciation for how the world around us works. From the simple process of doubling a recipe, to finding the optimum angle between wind and current to win a sailing race, to deeper questions about the workings of the cosmos, I hope to help students understand and internalize just how important (and useful!) an education in math and science really is!."
