Award-Winning Biology Tutors in New York, NY
Victoria "...In addition to being a classroom certified teacher, I have also tutored older students in SAT test preparation, as well as classroom content such as calculus and physics. I tutor a wide range of subjects, ranging from elementary education to high school Mathematics, science and Spanish. I enjoy teaching and my work is about my students, who have the potential to achieve at the highest levels, and their parents, who want the best for them..."
Elisha "...English is also a favorite subject of mine as I love to read and write and love reading the works of others. I like to tutor subjects by working through problems with students and practicing problems. Outside of academics, I enjoy hiking and have almost finished half of the Appalachian trail..."
Rushi "... I have served as a tutor to various age groups ranging from first graders to my peers in college. Due to these experiences, my primary goal as a tutor will be to both instill belief and motivation into all of my students because I believe that only a lack of these two components prevents a student from maximizing their potential. I hope to work with my students in an informative and collaborative manner to help them develop an interest in the subject material..."
Ben "... Back in college, I served as a teaching assistant and tutor for a Microbiology honors course for Biology majors, as well as an Introductory Biology/Life Science course for students fulfilling their General Science credits. My time spent as a TA included lecture style teaching and overseeing laboratory sessions for a 20-30 student class, as well as small group and one-on-one tutoring sessions. Next year, I will begin my residency training in Internal Medicine and Neurology, and I am hoping to stay in New York and work at either Cornell, Mount Sinai, or my home institution of NYU. I am experienced and very capable in helping students out with high school or college-level Biology, Chemistry, Physics, various Math courses, as well as standardized tests such as the SAT or the MCAT..."

Denise "... Students are often better able to grasp complicated concepts when they're viewed in an interdisciplinary context. As an artist and techie, I frequently call on both my creative and analytical sides when teaching and developing curriculum, especially in the areas of science-arts. Some of my fondest moments have been when a student mastered a complicated skill or concept with ease because they were so highly focused on the “fun” project or experiment..."
Marie "...I believe in guiding students through new concepts by breaking them down into smaller parts, including what they already know, then building upon that. The application of what we already know helps us gain a deeper understanding of the new concepts, reinforces the old ones, and fosters the confidence we need to thrive in academia. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, horseback riding, running, yoga and reading..."

Geraldo "I graduated from CUNY City College’s Biochemistry program with honors in liberal arts and science research. As a freshman, I began workshop leading in Introductory Chemistry courses and, soon thereafter, progressed to Organic, Quantitative and Thermodynamic Chemistry. I enjoyed my interaction with the students so much that, after graduating, I decided to adjunct lecture at a community college. There, I welcomed the exciting challenge of engaging adult learners in an introductory biology course with labs..."
Katherine "... With them I learned the value of working one on one with students to identify how best they learn and help them master their own learning style. I went on to work for another, more individualized company as a lead academic tutor in test prep and multiple subjects. I was recruited by an online tutoring firm to write and perform their ACT prep video series..."
