Carefully selected, highly-credentialed ACT Science tutors in Yonkers, NY
"My never ending interest in science led me to pursue a degree in Molecular Biology at Princeton with a premedical science focus. I am currently working as a Research Assistant at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. While my greatest passion is the sciences, from a very young age I have been a very avid reader and have enjoyed writing. I particularly enjoy the grammatical aspects of writing and would be a great asset to a student who is looking to improve their writing skills or is seeking help with college essays. My previous teaching experiences include a summer job serving as a Teacher Assistant at The Boys and Girls Club with children ...

"I've since tutored most high school, college, and graduate school entrance exams. I've worked with students of all ages on grade-level studies in math, science, the humanities and foreign languages. Students at top high schools like Stuyvesant and Brooklyn Tech are especially engaging to work with, due to the challenging nature of the material and the lively mind of the student. In addition to my own tutoring practice, I've also been director of a non-profit tutoring center."

" Learning any subject requires lots of hard work, but I also think having a tutor should be fun! I know that's a cliche, but I truly believe in developing lasting relationships with each student and developing a rapport. Because there's only one student to help, there's no excuse not to make the lessons engaging and personalized to their interests. For example, if you have a student who loves sports but struggles with math, I have a slew of analogies that can help. To me, tutoring is a delicate balance between a hands-on and hands-off approach. Any tutor worth his salt will know not just how to guide students through concepts, but also when to ...

"It doesn't hurt that I've had a lot of practice with the things I teach, but I am much more proud of my more personal achievements than of my test scores or good grades. Some of my students who "hated" reading and writing now devour books (or at least magazines) and churn out masterful essays when they have to. Others who "couldn't" study find they have a new drive after I relate to them about overcoming my own challenges with time management and discipline. It's not easy forming a connection between getting a great score on a standardized test and doing the things we actually want to be doing months or years later, and maybe it's bizarre that we ...

I also have very strong writing skills, and love editing college application essays."

" Coming to a problem - whether it be an essay, a math question, or a writing exercise - with a different mind frame can help make learning fun and rewarding. I have over five years experience tutoring both groups and individuals and have taught all ages (my youngest student was 5 years old and my oldest student was 71!). I think it's important that both the student and the tutor feel comfortable and ready to learn - the best way to learn is with an open mind. ."
