Award-Winning GRE Tutors in New York, NY
Sejal "...Throughout my education, I have been a well-rounded student in sciences and the humanities because of my patience in problem solving and because I utilize different study methods for different material. I have experience working with a wide range of students from elementary school to college students. The best part of tutoring for me is when a student truly begins to enjoy a subject they initially found difficult..."
Robert "...I have taught as a tutor and college professor for three years at local institutions like Temple and Drexel. I am currently a research assistant at Columbia, UPenn, and Yale, where I enjoy discovering strategies for optimum educational performance. Besides these things, I personally enjoy making challenging concepts simple, and I am good at helping people find their own best learning style..."
Rona "...I did not feel very engaged in my science classes until sophomore year of high school, when I found a love for chemistry. Without the encouragement of my scientifically inclined family, I might have lost interest in science long before that chemistry class. As a woman, I hope young girls will be inspired to follow a path similar to mine..."

Ken "... I have also had experience tutoring the SAT, as well as helping high school juniors and seniors with their college application process and essay writing. Throughout the years I've been a student, I've had many teachers and tutors, both good and bad. My personal philosophy is to respect my students and engage with them on their terms, and to foster a sense of purpose and positive attitude towards whatever I'm tutoring..."

I am approachable and enthusiastic, and actively work to engage my students in the subject matter they are working on.

Naomi "...I am all about making learning exciting and intuitive! During Stanford, I served as a mentor and tutor two times a week at the East Palo Alto Boys and Girls Club, and spent many Saturday mornings at a local high school co-coaching the tri-math-a-lon team to two-time national victory. In high school, I worked with my principal to launch MenTu, a mentoring and tutoring program for local elementary school students. Through one on one attention we were able to strengthen the students' math and English homework scores, meanwhile building positive and reinforcing relationships that strengthened their confidence..."
Bradley "... In the first weeks at Baruch, I realized something very important: we are always a little in-between places, and we do not altogether leave the "old" house when we move into the "new." I increasingly understood teaching to be less about the introduction of new knowledge, then creative ways of re-appropriating what we already know. In short, I became a fan of recycling, finding out what my students knew (always a surprising amount), what worked for them, and then coming up with improved ways of merging those effective strategies (at writing an essay with a thesis statement, for instance) with what were time-tested and worked well for me. As a tutor for standardized tests, I do the same, but also draw upon specific literary-minded questions that I asked on a routine basis as an Instructor of World Literature..."

Lauren "...Over the past few years, I've taught students at a wide range of levels including: College literature and composition classes at UC Berkeley, Middle school writing classes, High School Essay Writing and SAT Test Prep classes, SAT/PSAT tutoring, and High school tutoring (English and History). I'm fluent in French and studied at the Sorbonne in Paris for a year during my previous life as a Historian. When I'm not tutoring or working on my dissertation, I do some freelance writing. It's a cliche to say that my writing informs my teaching while my teaching improves my writing, but it's also true: the constant effort to improve my own work helps me to understand what my students are going through, while my work as a teacher and tutor gives me a fresh perspective on my writing..."
