Currently, I am pursuing a Master’s degree in Nutrition and Food Science with the end goal of working in child and teen health and nutrition education..."
Dalia "...I began devoting countless hours to tutoring in high school, helping my classmates in algebra, chemistry, and critical essay writing for AP exams. Knowing that I could make a difference, throughout college I worked for the NYC Department of Education programs as a tutor to elementary and middle school children struggling in Math and ELA in Brooklyn. I focused on improving the reading and writing skills of non-native English speakers..."
Vanessa "I have taught 1st grade for 4 years and believe it is the "reading grade." I know how important it is for a child to be reading on level when they leave 1st grade and how it will effect them throughout their academic life. This year I am teaching kindergarden. I am a very patient teacher..."
Tiffany "...I genuinely LOVE learning, I study Mathematics and Statistics in my spare time, I have actually read the classics (not because they were assigned but) because I have a hunger for knowledge and truth and beauty.

Ranked 4th best in the US in Econometrics, 10th in Economics, and 10th best in Social Cultural Anthropology..."

Amy "...After graduation, I spent a year at Columbia University studying physics, chemistry, and math, and am now pursuing a Masters in Genetic Counseling. My tutoring experience includes helping high school students with Spanish, biology, and SAT prep, as well as mentoring incoming college freshman on organization and study habits. My absolute favorite subject to tutor is SAT, because it’s so satisfying to see students who didn’t think they could do well suddenly excel once they learn just a handful of strategies..."
Caitlyn "...I also think my generally upbeat and easy-going personality help me to be flexible in how I approach my tutoring sessions. I never treat two students the same way, and I like to try to base my sessions on the student's needs and interests as much as I can. I recently moved to Massachusetts and began working as a Pre-K teacher in Arlington. In my free time, I enjoy exploring the city of Boston and the surrounding areas..."

Tiffany "...I love working with students of all ages. I am very familiar with the school systems and have developed my own teaching approach that leaves the students that I work with feeling a sense of accomplishment and ownership of the material. I have found that this is the key to lasting and continuing progress..."
Erin "...Outside of school I tutored several local students in middle school math. I also taught a class of first graders in my parish. I feel that the most important part of learning is understanding. Using my experiences as both a tutor and as a student, I work with students to help them reach a high understanding of the subject material..."
Rachel "...I particularly enjoy tutoring organic and biochemistry because they’re the building blocks for other biology courses, and for the world around us. It’s hard to make atoms and molecules significant when they’re presented alone, but if you can put them in context by connecting them to things that are visible and tangible, these abstract concepts become a new way of understanding how life works! I’m excited by the subjects I have the privilege of teaching, and I think that’s what makes my tutoring style special. I really believe that anyone can enjoy learning about the most complicated topics as long as they have someone who’s enthusiastic about explaining them in comprehensible ways..."
