I am currently doing research at the Hospital for Special Surgeries to gain valuable experience before heading off to medical school. While at Yale, I played soccer for 4 years and tutored other students in organic chemistry..."
Ryan "... Furthermore, I try to have a student do some writing, some reading, and some discussion in each lesson, and in this way engage the main three modes of learning. That being said, I try to modify my teaching style to best benefit the type of student I am tutoring. Over the last year, I have been teaching test-prep for the ACT, SAT, and High School Entrance Exams, as well as high school writing; US History; Literature; and Chemistry, and all grade-school subjects..."
Michael "...As an educator, I seek to target areas for improvement while reinforcing a student's strengths. I also believe in the importance of balancing efficiency with a warm and supportive teacher–student rapport--particularly given the vulnerable position of a busy, stressed-out student seeking help with high-stakes assessments. Because all students are different, I work to tailor my instruction to suit each student's unique learning style and personality..."

Genesis "...John's University has ensured that I not only can tutor students in technical fields but also humanities. I am a savvy test taker and would be able to teach your child not only the content necessary to excel at an exam and other standardized tests, but also how to utilize strategies to maximize efficiency and accuracy. In teaching, I enjoy connecting the subject matter to topics that would not necessarily seem relevant to the lesson in order to engage the student on a deeper level..."

Oliver "... My experience at Fordham demonstrated firsthand the value education has in helping people understand difficult concepts and grasp the connections between ideas from different academic subjects. As a tutor, I strive to help students attain comprehension and learn how to approach subjects that may seem daunting at first. During my time as an undergraduate, I volunteered as a tutor for middle school students as part of a joint athletic and academic after school program..."
Beau "...I am pursuing a Bachelor's of Science in Mechanical Engineering, with a focus on fluid mechanics and energy conversion. I have tutoring experience from my senior year in high school, when I ran my own test prep and tutoring service for sophomores and juniors. Most of my experience is in SAT and ACT test prep, but I have also done tutoring in the maths and sciences and English composition..."
Justine "...My philosophy for tackling challenging academic subjects is also an outgrowth of my own personal study habits. I believe that organization is key. I have found that a certain combination of systematic organization and simplification of every detail helps to illuminate the solution..."
George "...Before college, I was valedictorian at Rocklin High School, and I have recent, first-hand experience with a broad range of advanced and AP classes, as well as the SAT I and various SAT subject tests.
