"I worked primarily at the level of high school math (Geometry through Calculus), but occasionally had the opportunity to branch off with students into other areas of interest, such as Latin or music theory. In all cases, I loved revisiting my favorite academic subjects and finding ways to help adolescents develop a greater understanding of them, but my favorite part was getting to know the students themselves. I started tutoring again here in New York--and began applying to grad school in education--because I had come to miss these joys. Again, my main subject area is math, but I have a strong background in a wide array of other fields and, ...

" “There's no use trying,” she said. “One can't believe impossible things.” “I daresay you haven't had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” -Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland My goal is to share with students the beauty of mathematics and to enable them to become fluent in its language."

" With them I learned the value of working one on one with students to identify how best they learn and help them master their own learning style. I went on to work for another, more individualized company as a lead academic tutor in test prep and multiple subjects. I was recruited by an online tutoring firm to write and perform their ACT prep video series. I currently assist students in Liberal Arts Studies through the Writing Center at the Juilliard School, and I continue to teach lessons in music."

" I BELIEVE THAT ANY STUDENT CAN MASTER THESE CONCEPTS, REGARDLESS OF HOW THEY CURRENTLY FEEL ABOUT THEIR MATHEMATICAL ABILITIES OR INTEREST LEVEL, SO LONG AS THEY HAVE TWO THINGS: 1. A desire to learn the material (a desire to survive the course or test will do) 2. A teacher who is creative enough to understand how the student thinks, and can adapt lessons into the student's "own language" accordingly IF YOU BRING THE FORMER, I’LL BRING THE LATTER. My previous tutoring experience has taught me one thing above all else: everybody learns differently, and effective teachers are the ones who can adapt." ...

"It is a personal goal to make science and math more accessible; I was fortunate to have an inspiring science teacher early in my education, and enjoy passing on that love for understanding natural processes, particularly in biology and chemistry. In addition to tutoring I work in an active cancer research lab, and have hands-on experience with microbiology and molecular biology techniques. I like to teach with real-world examples, mnemonic devices, and visual aids; making connections and drawing one's own conclusions are lasting tools in learning that far surpass what memorization and rote work can achieve. I am also fluent in ...

" I have experience in one-on-one tutoring and in classroom teaching. I work with my students to find out how best they learn, then I structure the lessons accordingly and teach clearly to help them master the material and excel. I helped tutor a student to pass the New York City SHSAT exam and gain admission to Bronx High School of Science, one of the premier high schools in New York City with eight Nobel Prize winners as alumni.

" As a math and physics graduate of a liberal arts college, and having taught in them, I am committed to a broad education in science/humanities, and try to inculcate a value for learning for its own sake. I believe that students who are well prepared in both quantitative and verbal expression, think actively, and get into the habit of connecting the things they have learned, will have the raw material to excel in life, wherever it takes them. I went on from college to do a PhD in Physics at the University of Rochester, and that took me into an academic career for 6 years, where I taught students at Swarthmore College and Princeton University. I am ...
