Award-Winning History Tutors in New York, NY
Lindsey "...I am now pursuing an MA in Journalism at NYU. My mother is an elementary school teacher, and I get my love of learning and teaching from her! During undergrad, I worked for a private company, where I tutored English, History/Social Studies, and Social Sciences, as well as for Stanford, where I tutored Italian. As a tutor, I feel it is my job not only to help students succeed in a particular subject, but to ignite them as learners, find their intellectual passion, and become more engaged students..."
Samantha "I have been tutoring for the past ten years. I have tutored a variety of subjects for students ranging from elementary school to post-college students. I love learning and I am excited to share my passion with you!."
Leo "...In my experience, the greatest strides for teaching a struggling student are made when the process of learning occurs as a product of conversation rather than rigid instruction and rote memorization. Though I tutor across a variety of subjects my passions are English, Literature, and History. Education, I believe, is a process of empowerment and helping students reach their potential through an engaged and productive pedagogy is something I highly value..."
Adam "...Piling too much pressure onto students only creates stress and self-doubt so I like to keep things light. I like to make lots of comparisons to current events that are relevant to the subject matter at hand to make things less intimidating and foreign. When I am not working I like playing and recording original music, cooking (often French dishes, not surprisingly), and watching sports..."
Laura "...I received my Bachelor of Arts in History with a focus on recent American economic history. I was a pre-med, molecular biology major for my first two years at Princeton, and while I ended up deciding not to pursue a career in the sciences, I took many science classes in high school (AP) and in college, and still enjoy these subjects. Since graduating from Princeton, I have moved to Manhattan where I have started a job as an analyst at a private equity firm..."
Amy "... I have always had a love for teaching children and it has given me great joy. I have been a nanny and babysitter for years as well as worked as a teaching assistant at a private pre-school. I try to make learning as fun as possible and as individualized as possible! What works for one student doesn't always work for another..."

Jennifer "...While I tutor in a wide variety of subjects, I especially enjoy math and writing skills. Math was always one of my favorite subjects in school, and I enjoy the process of communicating those concepts to students. Writing is also exciting for me to tutor because I am fascinated by my students' perspectives and how to make those stronger in their own writing..."
Genesis "...I'm certified to teach from kindergarten to grade 12. The liberal arts curriculum I took at St. John's University has ensured that I not only can tutor students in technical fields but also humanities..."

Nicole "...Usually I find that my students already possess all the tools within to overcome any academic difficulty they may be experiencing. They simply need a little personal attention and encouragement to bring out their confidence and comfort with a subject, as well as a platform where they feel safe to ask any questions. Outside of tutoring, I enjoy staying active through yoga, running, dance, horseback riding, and sports..."
Richard "... I usually mold my teaching methods to fit the needs of my students. I believe the key to tutoring is to help the student have an "Aha!" moment, when a previously misunderstood concept suddenly makes sense. Such moments give students a real sense of confidence in themselves and agency in their learning, as their hard work has paid off..."
