"I decided that instead of teaching/tutoring, I should work for corporate America, and I worked at Goldman Sachs for 3 years. During that process, I realized that my true gift came from incorporating real life examples from the real world with academic lessons, which often help when teaching and fully learning a lesson. And that is my true teaching method, real world with a combination of academic topics, which help my students become independent with the knowledge."

" Regardless of the subject, each student has helped me refine not only my teaching skill, but my ability to manage and inspire students. Teaching is a challenge. Each student brings a different set of strengths, weakness, and a unique way of understanding subject matter. When I began tutoring, I thought my job was to demonstrate how to use a formula or help a student memorize a set of facts. This was far from the truth."

" My approach to teaching/tutoring is building confidence through math. Often times, I have students who say they "don't get it." However, I show them they may not get the whole picture yet, but they do have an understanding of some. And by showing them tangible steps they can use time and again, students see they can “get it”. Those “ah-ha” moments are not only building blocks in their skills, but more importantly, reinforcing who they are and their abilities."

"Through paying careful attention to how they execute problems and which explanations they prefer, I explore their individual learning style and develop teaching methods that cater to them.

" I currently assist students in Liberal Arts Studies through the Writing Center at the Juilliard School, and I continue to teach lessons in music. My enthusiasm for working with students continues to grow as I meet more capable, intelligent young people who often just need insight into how to tackle the mass of material they receive in the classroom. My background is as a classically trained singer, and I know first-hand the value of seeking the best help to improve one’s skills. I moved to New York City to continue my own development as a performer at the highest level, and I appreciate the will to aspire that this city instills." ...

"If my student is lacking the knowledge of the basics I always make sure to cover them quickly before teaching the more advanced subject. In high school, I myself struggled with physics and math, so I have a good idea of what could be confusing to students and I know a lot of memorization tricks and analogies to simplify the hard concepts. I also specialize in teaching College math and physics and preparing the student for the math and physics section of the following standardized exams: GRE, MCAT, OAT, DAT or any other exam of this sort which requires the knowledge of college level physics and math. I have almost 6 years of tutoring experience. I ...
