Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Languages tutors in Great Neck, NY
"I started tutoring again here in New York--and began applying to grad school in education--because I had come to miss these joys. Again, my main subject area is math, but I have a strong background in a wide array of other fields and, having worked two years writing workbooks for the test, am particularly well qualified for tutoring for the SAT. My teaching style is highly customized to the student(s) I'm working with: my main goal is always to make him or her feel as comfortable as possible. But beyond that--unless we're quickly nearing a standardized test date and fundamental understanding is temporarily less of a priority than scoring ...

" In high school, I worked with my principal to launch MenTu, a mentoring and tutoring program for local elementary school students. Through one on one attention we were able to strengthen the students' math and English homework scores, meanwhile building positive and reinforcing relationships that strengthened their confidence. Subsequently, I was invited to work as a tutor of all subjects at my magnet high school, where I continued to support students, reinforcing basics and providing extra enrichment as needed. Having coached myself to excellence in the ACT, SAT, and GRE, I am available as an instructor for test taking strategy." ...

"I missed interacting with students and helping others in areas they have difficulty in. I currently tutor all levels of high school math, science, SAT, ACT, ISEE, SSAT and essay writing.

" My experience with German is not just academic, but practical. I spent a year studying in northern Germany, as well as another half year studying in Vienna, Austria. Additionally, after this intensive study, I earned a Bachelor's in German from Susquehanna University. I tailor my sessions and focus on problem areas that the student may be having in German, as well as the other subjects I teach. As a master's student myself, I realize that an individualized approach helps improve student confidence and his or her mastery of the material.." ...

"Languages can take you on incredible journeys. I started tutoring while in college and soon I realized it would become my career. I believe my passion for teaching is due to my passion for learning. When I try to explain it to people I always talk about that moment I know we have all experienced, in which we are trying to learn something and we feel stuck, it is frustrating but then in a moment we just get it! What an amazing and empowering moment! It is for that moment alone that I love to teach, so my goal is to give my students those moments that they will keep forever.." ...

"As a freshman, I began workshop leading in Introductory Chemistry courses and, soon thereafter, progressed to Organic, Quantitative and Thermodynamic Chemistry. I enjoyed my interaction with the students so much that, after graduating, I decided to adjunct lecture at a community college. There, I welcomed the exciting challenge of engaging adult learners in an introductory biology course with labs. Recently, I have garnered some extensive private experience tutoring middle to high-school age students in Algebra, Geometry, ELA, Chemistry and Biology, as an independent contractor for a couple of companies. I look forward to ...
