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..."
Jennifer "I have been tutoring students for 6 years, and I have enjoyed each moment of it! It's truly fulfilling when you see your students understand a certain subject and I hope to be a part of their academic achievements. I am an experienced tutor in math and science subjects, and I hope to share my passion for the STEM fields with someone else. As a computer science and operations research major, I hope to be able to show the real life applications of math and science problems through tutoring."

Jonathan "...I believe strongly that a student should be guided through problems rather than simply told whether they are right or wrong (that's what an answer key is for!). A tutor should provide feedback on their thought processes as well as follow through all possible choices when given options such as multiple choice. This way, students can learn to identify the right answer..."
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..."
