Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Latin tutors in Levittown, NY
" Furthermore, my teaching has been shaped by many years working as a high-school history / social studies teacher: I have taught global history, and several electives: political philosophy, modern Latin America, strategic thinking and religion. I have also taught test preparation and ESL. This background enables me to provide instructive, substantive lessons, and to understand and draw upon each student's needs and potentialities, to unlock his or her academic potential. In addition to subject knowledge, effective self-expression (written and oral), and reasoned analysis of well-chosen evidence, I also encourage students ...

"A great tutor can see outside the box and be flexible enough to explain the same concept in a variety of ways, depending on the needs of the student. A tutor must be more personable with the student than a classroom teacher, who to a certain degree, must hide behind a teaching persona. Lastly, in addition to speaking with the utmost clarity, a great tutor must have excellent listening skills.."

" My students have ranged from the pre-K to university levels. For each student, I put a strong emphasis on personalizing their studies to their needs and interests. My passions as a scholar lie in the humanities -- my two and a half years in the pre-medical program at Fordham notwithstanding -- particularly in American and European history, literature and Latin.

"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 ...

"I really believe in tutoring, as a way to improve your grades in the short term, and as a long term investment to set a completely new point of view about studying. In fact, learning should always be an easy and pleasant experience for everyone, because it is one of the most beautiful activities that one can engage in. My experience as a tutor makes me very comfortable about my skills. All my students always managed to improve their grades, and the great majority of them found a new inspiration and new energy to put into their study. I really believe that tutoring should work in both finding an effective solution for urgent problems with grades ...
