I pride myself on being able to explain abstract concepts in practical terms and on being approachable and understanding. I am a warm, funny, and determined person who genuinely loves teaching..."
Elizabeth "I'm a Harvard graduate and a former high school science teacher with Teach for America. 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. As a teacher my style is to help students discover the answers on their own, and become more confident in their ability to use critical thinking..."

Gwendolen "In France, I worked with native speakers to improve their English speaking and comprehension. Most recently, I worked with first generation college applicants to study for the SAT, take practice tests, and prepare college applications.

Lia "...While I can tutor a broad range of subjects and students, my absolute favorite subject to teach is English, including both Reading and Writing, mostly because I find this subject to just be so enjoyable. I believe in a more Socratic and investigative approach to teaching as I think that the deepest learning comes from answering guided questions and coming to one's own conclusions, then matching those conclusions to available standards and literature. I also believe in providing modes of concrete, pictorial, and abstract learning for every standard to truly solidify understanding for all learning styles..."

I like to make learning fun- my students can always look forward to activities and other creative strategies to master a subject..."
Lisa "... I absolutely love math and science, and I try to share my enthusiasm for learning with all of my students. Teaching is not one-size-fits-all. My goal is to help each student achieve to the best of his or her ability by adapting my teaching style to the needs of each individual student..."
