Award-Winning History Tutors in New York, NY
Jessica "...As a tutor, I identify and utilize study techniques that each student feels works best for them. When a student is not sure how to approach a subject, I gain their perspective and guide them through breaking down the material into manageable sections. My ultimate goal is to enhance a student’s learning experience as much as possible..."

Nathaniel "...I especially enjoy helping students prepare for standardized tests because I remember how helpful a compelling guide and mentor can be during the often stressful process of testing and preparation for it. In addition to performing well on the exams themselves, I believe it is just as important for students to learn how to think calmly and confidently about these tests, so that they can help to serve students' broader educational goals. In addition to tutoring students - and being one myself - I enjoy keeping fit by boxing at the gym, reading mostly non-fiction, and rooting for favorite NCAA teams..."

For two years I lived with a host family in the Andes Mountains and developed sustainable programs in preventative healthcare and education! After Peace Corps I helped launch a technology startup in New York City that partnered with taxi drivers. I absolutely love tutoring and sharing my passion for a variety of subjects including math, history, economics and Spanish! I have extensive experience tutoring all ages, including adults and my approach is collaborative, individualized, and fun..."
Jane "...I want to be able to help students find their own joy of learning and I believe tutoring can really help them with that. Being able to understand a subject and come to that understanding on your own, with that little "ah ha!" in the back of your head is an amazing feeling. I believe that tutoring provides guidance for students who may need some extra help to get to that "ah ha" moment..."
