" 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 required to arrive at the answer yourself are much more valuable life skills. On account of my background in engineering and the life sciences, my areas of expertise run the ...

" In general, I try to relate new material that I am tutoring back to concepts that a student has already grasped so that unfamiliar material takes on a familiar character. 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." ...

"I particularly enjoy teaching science, writing, and test prep. With test prep I've found that supplemental work on fundamental skills helps students improve their scores much more than working through a test prep book alone. Watching students develop confidence in their abilities and improve their performance makes my tutoring sessions some of the best hours of my week!."

"I'm in New York studying theater and voice but miss my science classes and students like crazy! I'm particularly strong in biology but also totally comfortable with chemistry, English and writing, social studies/history, and test prep.

"I love connecting with individual students, and each one I meet teaches me how to help the next. My tutoring style centers on breaking down concepts and starting from scratch, while focusing on logical thinking and analytical skills. I want the student to be able to teach their way through solving a problem so they can apply the fundamentals in other places. Working with students one-on-one is great because I get a chance to see what they’re curious and passionate about, and how they personally value the subjects in which they are struggling.
