Maha "...in Chemistry and Biology, and I am currently a graduate student at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. My teaching experience spans several years and age groups. As a high school student, I volunteered as a teaching assistant for a middle school science class..."
Ryan "... 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..."
Aakash "...I moved to New York City in early August where I am currently working as a Research Assistant at Columbia University Medical Center while I continue the year-long medical school application process. I look forward to matriculating into medical school in Fall 2016. As an undergraduate at Emory University, I was motivated to share my passion for math and biology with others in the community, so I became a Teaching Assistant for a basic health education course and an introductory biology lab on campus; I also served as a tutor for Emory Reads, a campus organization that tutors underserved elementary and middle school students in math and reading. The most rewarding and exciting component of tutoring is exposing students to new fields and instilling the confidence in them to explore subjects areas that they may not have considered to be their strength. Patience is one of my key attributes as an individual, and this translates perfectly to my role as a tutor..."

Sarah "... I know how grueling the preparation for and day of the test can be, and I enjoy teaching students the methods that I have used to conquer these tests, and I encourage students to find their own techniques as well. I like to stress the big picture in test prep, and the importance of knowing how to take a test, including pacing, skipping problems, recovering from a mistake; things beyond just memorizing formulas. Outside of academia, I recently moved to NYC and love to check out vegetarian restaurants around the city..."
Aki "I love working with my students and think that teaching is the most rewarding job there is! It is the best feeling when I see my student solving the math problems they couldn't before and more importantly, enjoying learning.

Morgan "... When tutoring, I look for ways to relate the material to one of your child's interests, to better ensure he/she retains the material. Part of my method includes instructing students on how to properly study. For example, I advise them on how to make comprehensive study reviews, a schedule, and note cards..."

Jason "...I am also able to assist in test prep for the SAT, SAT II and AP exams, as well as MCAT Biology. I have a particular interest in essay editing and love helping students structure their writing to express their ideas in the best way possible. As a future medical student, I am also glad to help med school applicants develop their personal statements and, in general, to offer advice about the med school application process. My teaching philosophy is simple..."
