Benjamin "I am a native New Yorker, graduating from Lynbrook Senior High School in 2007. I am in my 2L year at Fordham University Law School on a maximum academic scholarship. I went the SUNY route in undergrad and attended Binghamton University..."
Binghamton University - BA, English, Rhetoric
Maddy "...I have a firm grasp on all subjects regarding Mathematics up to college level Calculus 2. As far as English is concerned, since my degree is both a science and humanities degree, I have mastered how to write persuasively, informatively, and creatively. Critical thinking skills and good reading comprehension, I believe, is crucial to succeeding in any English class or pass any sort of exam in English as well..."
Brett "... I specialize in math (levels ranging from fundamentals all through Calculus), French and Spanish. I also tutor test prep (SAT, HSPT, ISEE, SSAT) and writing skills. I do my best with each of my students to instill a deeper appreciation for a given topic, making it more relatable, more fun, and easier to learn..."
Michelle "...I have also developed curriculum for high school and college students in Theology and Religious Studies. I particularly enjoy assisting students with test preparation. By helping students to master core English and Math skills, I can aid students to open doors for their future..."
Daniel "...I tutor a wide range of subjects, but I am most passionate about reading, writing and public speaking. I believe in making learning fun, and showing students how the subject is relevant to their life in a very practical way. I'm also a big believer in self learning; whenever possible I try to guide the students to the point where they can find the answer on their own, rather than just telling it to them straight out..."
Veronica "...I started tutoring my peers in elementary school, and went on to organize formal peer tutoring groups in middle and high school, to help bridge gaps between teachers' expectations and my peers' reality. I've used my lifelong passion for math and problem solving to obtain my Master's degree in Computer Science, but I know that without a solid background in math and reading, my advanced degree would have been difficult to achieve. I prefer students to understand, from their unique point of view, why 1+1=2, why x*y=z or why "knock" only has one 'k' sound. Kids have a lot going on in their academic and personal lives, so I take time to talk to my students, take a few steps back from the problem and understand how they're tackling the problem..."
Melanie "...John's Law in 2012. I have been tutoring off and on for eighteen years and did a stint as a law journal mentor and editor, although I didn't go into teaching, I have always been an excellent and intuitive test taker and student and I really enjoy passing on those skills and knowledge to other people in a one-on-one setting. I think the most important part of teaching in any environment is the ability to look at, and explain, problems/questions/subjects in a variety of ways and discover what works best for the student. It is usually possible to make even the most mundane subjects or test preparations interesting (and, *gasp*, even enjoyable) if you think outside the box..."

St. John's University - JD, Law
Elizabeth "...I have experience in both public and private schools and in a variety of curricula: Everyday and Singapore Math, Reading and Writing Workshop among others. I love helping with test prep; SAT, ISEE, SSAT. My students have increased confidence and scores, and have gained admission to top independent schools and colleges after our time spent in test prep. I love helping students find meaning in their learning..."
Jed "...Besides chemistry, I offer tutoring in all high school math levels and specialize in writing/essay editing and SAT/ACT test prep as well. I am a creative writing minor and really enjoy using a variety of methods to help you develop a sense of conciseness, organization, and rhythm in their writing. Some of my favorite writers/poets include Langston Hughes, John Steinbeck, and Peter Matthiessen. Before returning to Middlebury College to finish my B.A..."
Benjamin "...As a prospective law student, I have been through multiple levels of the standardized testing process and appreciate how difficult it is for students to overcome this obstacle in order to reach their goals. I take a great deal of pleasure in helping people through this process as a result and hope the experiences I impart can be of use to them. I am particularly passionate about aiding others in studying history and improving their writing skills; watching people find their own voice in their work is the key for the latter and invariably leads to improvements in the former..."
