Justin "...After two years of settling in, I joined a local non-profit tutoring group. Initially, I helped elementary school students with creative writing projects, and then I moved to general after-school tutoring sessions, where ages ranged from 6-14. I'm most comfortable tutoring Math (up to Calculus) and Science related subjects, as well as helping with expository writing assignments..."
Emmelina "I am currently a junior at Columbia University studying Environmental Science with a focus on Sustainable Development. I have tutored since early high school in all subjects that range from high school entrance exam preparation (SHSAT in New York City as well as MAP and ISEE in Chicago) to the college process (all areas of SAT/ACT/SAT Subject Tests/College Essay help) to subject area help—my favorites are middle and high school Math and Writing. Since I've been in intense academic settings for a lot of my life (Stuyvesant High School, University of Chicago, and now Columbia University), I always try to be a personable and positive figure with my tutees, because I understand what it's like at that age to have so much stress put upon you to improve your scores by X amount of points, and I want them to feel like a tutoring session is a relaxing but productive space where they shouldn't be afraid to ask questions and tell me what keeps tripping them up..."
Nicholas "I've been teaching children to adults for eight years and have worked as the math tutor for my undergraduate college. I feel that successful teaching comes from understanding of not only the material, but the student as well. Every person is different and so is the way we learn..."

Abira ".... My real world experience and my keen eye for words gives me good insight when tutoring students. I believe that education is very important and can add to a persons success.

Humaira "...Formally, I have also been trained as an SAT tutor and taught classes for over two years. I believe my balance of interest in English and quantitative subjects allows me to be flexible in my tutoring style. Growing up, I was always concerned about both my basic math and English skills - I was naturally "weaker" in math and English was my second language..."
Jason "Since college, I have lived by a mission in my life: To create a world of purpose by giving people the tools they need to find success in their lives. I am a graduate of the University of Wisconsin, consistently rated in the top 25 public universities. I have a degree in Russian with two minors: International Business and Integrated Liberal Studies (The Western 'core cannon' with emphasis on how different areas, politics, art, science, were interrelated)..."
Sophia "... Helping the teacher and students work more efficiently together showed me how important a tutor’s aid can be in the learning process. As a go-between, I was able to interact and connect with students to figure out what was preventing them from understanding the lessons, and then help students discover, on their own and through practice, what the teacher needed them to learn. I tutor French Language and Literature, English Language and Literature, Writing and Reading, and I am most passionate about Writing..."
