I also was a long term substitute for three months teaching five classes of juniors.

" I absolutely love math and science, and I try to share my enthusiasm for learning with all of my students. Teaching is not one-size-fits-all. My goal is to help each student achieve to the best of his or her ability by adapting my teaching style to the needs of each individual student. I believe that students can master (and enjoy!) any subject if they can find the right teacher."

"I have been a private tutor for the last 10 years now in Math (through Pre-Calculus), Literature (American, British, grammar), SAT I (Math, Verbal, Writing), and SAT II (Math I and II, Literature). Before moving to New York, I ran a private tutoring company based out of Rhode Island where I created curricula for various standardized exams (ISEE, SSAT, SAT I and II, ACT, MAT, GRE); I also offered college admissions guidance. I believe that the most important part of any tutor-student relationship is the ability for each to relate to the other; the tutor must be able to relate to the student relevant information that makes the material ...

But like most challenges in my life, I viewed it as motivation. I took a course, got private math tutoring, took practice tests, and came up with essay prompts. Ultimately, I got a very strong score, ranking me in the 96th percentile."

" I have been tutoring for the last 6 years professionally. In general, I try to relate new material that I am tutoring back to concepts that a student has already grasped so that unfamiliar material takes on a familiar character. Furthermore, I try to have a student do some writing, some reading, and some discussion in each lesson, and in this way engage the main three modes of learning. That being said, I try to modify my teaching style to best benefit the type of student I am tutoring."

" I'm a very patient teacher, who believes strongly in understanding the why behind each topic in order to understand how to solve the problems that a student will face as he/she progresses through a class. Problem solving skills are a major emphasis in my teachings, as that can streamline the application of knowledge on test or quiz. I hold a degree in Criminal Justice and am pursuing an additional degree in Computer Science. In my spare time, I'm an avid baseball fan (go Yankees!), movie buff and book worm."

"Once, I had gotten my undergraduate degree in psychology/neuroscience, I decided to pursue a masters degree in education. I love working with classrooms full of students, but I also love working with people one-on-one. I find that when the tutor has a chance to zero in on and accommodate a students' individual needs and learning style, the experience becomes more productive and enjoyable for everyone involved.."
