Award-Winning Calculus Tutors in New York, NY
Laura "...I absolutely love to teach! I find it vital to form a bond with my students, to get to know them and really find out what they like, what they are good at, and what will help them to be successful. I have well practiced methods for helping students learn new material and re-learn old or difficult material. I also incorporate methods that help to greatly reduce anxiety and actually make math fun! When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my four year old, Julia, and my crazy dog, Albie..."
Adaobi "... As a medical student, I also tutored Anatomy and Calculus. Since moving to the Northeast, I have tutored SAT Math/Writing/Critical Reading, SAT 2 Math level 2 in addition to Algebra I and II, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Biology, and Chemistry, and enjoy doing so. I believe in the difference tutoring makes early in life, as I have benefited from a private tutor myself from 1st through 8th grades and believe this is what significantly altered my trajectory..."
Daniel "I am a graduate of Boston College, with a Bachelors of Science degree in Physics. I have experience tutoring students in a variety of areas, but I am most passionate about STEM subjects, namely Physics and Mathematics. I believe that while students find these subjects interesting, many students are not in the correct mindset to properly grasp certain concepts..."
Joseph "I grew up in Long Island, NY where I played Football and Baseball for most of my childhood. I then went to Fordham University where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Engineering Physics. While I was a student, I helped run a coffee house, which put on concerts several times a month. After graduation in 2011, I was hired by Photonics Industries International as a Laser Engineer. I still work there today, but now as a group Manager. We produce industrial grade solid-state lasers that are used in many applications. Most notably, many of our laser systems are used to process the glass and electronics used in many Apple and Samsung cellphones and other electronics. I have a passion for mathematics and sciences and I have been tutoring others ever since I was in high school. I believe that I can make positive contributions to any student’s academic endeavors.."
Alexander "...I have taught in France, Africa, and in Boston, and I am especially passionate about language tutoring (French, Latin), although I also love teaching math, writing, and helping students through the college admissions process (including SAT prep). I have a critical-thinking-focused approach to teaching; that is, I focus on helping my students understand the concepts and frameworks underlying their most difficult assignments, and I try to improve their study habits and problem solving strategies. Outside of the realm of teaching, I also love sports and music..."
Kevin "...I am aiming for a 5 year bachelor's/master's degree in the College of Arts and Sciences. With tutoring, I am very patient, and it is my goal to make sure my tutees absolutely understand the material they need help with. In general, I explain things in a lot of detail, which could be unnecessary at times, but I think that is better than not explaining enough..."
Lianna "...Within the next few years I aim to obtain a Masters in Physics; eventually I'd like to have a PhD in Physics and be a professor at universities. Through the Equal Opportunity Program at the University I was able to shape and challenge the minds of students who sought help in sciences and mathematics. It was important for me to use my time to help those who needed extra support in learning what they were presented in their lectures..."

Romeo "A Stuyvesant High School alum and recent graduate of Harvard University with a degree in mathematics, I have experience tutoring math, physics, and economics. I have worked as a stockbroker on Wall Street and as an assistant in energy research at both NYU and City College; I am currently applying to PhD programs in applied mathematics. Born and raised in New York by a French mother and American father, I speak French and English bilingually and have traveled extensively in France, Japan, and West Africa..."
Roman "...This experience made me pursue engineering degree in college, and I finally graduated with B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Southern California. While in college, I discovered many aspects of serving the community through volunteering. During my last semester, I participated in the Joint Educational Project and worked with elementary school students, tutoring them in math and reading..."
Mikhail "...I have taken advanced coursework in both math and economics and understand which skills and concepts are essential to develop early on in order to succeed in more advanced courses. I have had prior experience tutoring chess to students ranging from elementary school to high school. My grandma was a mathematics teacher back in Russia and her excitement and passion for mathematics helped foster my interest in math and science from an early age..."
