Award-Winning Elementary Math Tutors in New York, NY
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..."
Chris "I'm an expert SAT tutor. I have over five years experience tutoring this test and over 15 years teaching experience, and I get great results from the index card method. I show my students how to make custom index cards from all of the problems that they've missed on the test. The cards allow them to re-confront the questions which they missed on the practice tests, again and again, until the ideas and understandings that form the solution become integrated into their current skill set. Complete explanations, which I review with them, point by point, are printed on the back, first by me, and then, by imitation, by them..."
Andrew "...My previous experiences include tutoring 7th grade math and serving as a teaching assistant at Stony Brook. I have also been helping friends with their class work since high school. I tutor mathematics and computer science, which I enjoy primarily because of the logic utilized in identifying the problems and applying the correct methods to solve them..."

Adonica "My experience as an educator of 26 years has enabled me to develop a wide range of skills that are needed to effectively work and communicate with students from diverse backgrounds and academic levels. I am an example of the impact that education has on the development of a child into adulthood. Education prepares students for real life experiences and careers that will continue throughout their lives..."
Damian "The most important thing I've learned from tutoring is that energy, empathy, and character make a great teacher, far above and beyond mastery of the topics and skills that need teaching. Somewhere down the road I gained a genuine interest in seeing my students succeed- not just at getting the grades they were after, but in gaining the kind of perspective and motivation that helps them do what they really want to do, long after our last session or their last final. 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..."
Carmen "...I tutor many different subjects and enjoy prepping for tests, especially the SAT, ACT, and GRE, but my personal passions are English and History. I particularly love helping students to craft strong (and grammatically sound) essays on any subject by working from a compelling thesis statement to a detailed outline to an excellent and convincing final paper. I'm a very patient tutor and love to use fun games to engage students while making sure that they understand the material rather than just memorizing..."
Marissa "...My favorite subject to tutor is Math because once students fully understand the fundamental ideas of a mathematical area, they can unlock their ability to tackle much more complex problems. I have experience tutoring children of all ages during my years babysitting throughout high school. My tutoring technique is a highly interactive approach, tailored to each student's specific needs and most effective learning style..."
Robert "I like Math and Physics, and I believe that I will be able to use my skills to help students learn more about these subjects. I will be patient, and I will try to make each session as interesting and fulfilling as possible. I will be responsive to the student's needs and will use my strengths in Math and Physics to help the student achieve success in these areas, always with thoughtfulness and consideration.."
