Nickolas "... I have had several volunteer tutoring experiences: my first was at the Kingdom House after-school program, and the second at Midtown Catholic Charities tutoring service. I loved my time with these two programs because I was able to help K-8th graders with their task of learning fundamental concepts that would help them acquire new knowledge for the rest of their lives. I've also had some experience in helping classmates with subjects such as Organic Chemistry and Physical Chemistry. I strongly believe in the idea that, if a tutee does not understand a concept, it is my fault for not having conveyed the concept effectively and in concrete terms..."

What separates me from other tutors is my ability to teach and reinforce essential learning strategies while covering content material..."
Adam "I entered the teaching field for two reasons: I enjoy math a lot, and, more importantly, I love helping students.

My aim is to inspire my students in a similar way, so that they can be excited about being life-long learners who seize every opportunity that comes their way.."
