" I have succeeded in helping my students consistently get the best scores they can.

" Although I have a strong biology background, I am very familiar with most sciences and math levels and can confidently teach any student in these areas. I feel that everyone has their own pace at which they learn and as a tutor it's my responsibility to tailor the subject to each individual student. In my experience, the worst attitude a student can have is to be negative about their abilities, one should never underestimate what they can do!."

" I have been doing freelance tutoring since December 2011 before working for Varsity Tutors. Learning math is different than any other subject. It is more about understanding the process and asking "why" rather than memorization. I am not far removed from studying math in school myself and I know what it's like to struggle, to feel lost in class, or to be stuck on a problem. I find the most effective method is having the student attempt the math problems on their own rather then just watch the problems being solved as they might in a classroom." ...

" My previous tutoring experience has taught me one thing above all else: everybody learns differently, and effective teachers are the ones who can adapt. This is what I do for all my students. A little more about me: I have recently relocated to the Upper West Side after completing my M.S. at Stanford in August. As an undergrad, I scored a 790/800 on the GRE quantitative reasoning test (the SAT's bigger, meaner brother)."

" 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."
