Award-Winning Math Tutors in Long Island, NY
Carmen "I grew up in Calgary, Canada, and I just graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Literature and a minor in Social Research and Public Policy from New York University Abu Dhabi. I have tutored middle school children in English, Math, and Social Studies in the past, and while in college I often helped other students with their writing. I tutor many different subjects and enjoy prepping for tests, especially the SAT, ACT, and GRE, but my personal passions are English and History. I particularly love helping students to craft strong (and grammatically sound) essays on any subject by working from a compelling thesis statement to a detailed outline to an excellent and convincing final paper..."
Sarah "I have a Masters degree in Early Childhood Special Education (birth to Grade 3) from Hunter College. I have been teaching students with a wide range of needs and abilities for the past four years. I am currently a special education teacher in a NYCDOE District 75 school. I have the most experience working with students who need support in elementary reading and math..."
Shangyu "I am currently a sophomore Physics Major at Fordham University; I have a 4.00 GPA and am ranked #1 in the class of 2018. I'm from China but am fluent in English, don't worry. I have experience tutoring non-native English speakers in reading, writing, and math. Most of these students were in the elementary and middle school range and had to learn English while trying to keep up in school. I also tutor peers in Physics as part of our Physics department's volunteer tutoring program..."
Sela "I have about 9 years of experiences in teaching and tutoring various age groups in subjects including math, science, and English. The needs of each student determine the teaching style.."
Diptesh "I am a pre-medical undergraduate at New York University studying Global Public Health with a concentration in Chemistry. I have been passionate about education since high school and have been teaching, tutoring, and mentoring students from grades 6-12 and college in a variety of subjects since! I specialize in mathematics and science tutoring as well as standardized exam preparation. In the past, I have helped students achieve significant improvements and success on the SAT, SHSAT, Regents and other exams! I truly believe education is a mutual learning and teaching opportunity and enjoy helping my students achieve a thorough understanding (those “Aha!” moments) and appreciation of whatever they choose to study! In the future, I seek to pursue clinical and pedagogical medicine and enjoy biking, skateboarding, dancing, and philosophizing in my spare time.."
Elijah "... I firmly believe that students are not mere vessels for knowledge, but rather human beings with individual goals, hopes, and dreams. These are integral to their academic and pre-college work, since excellent work derives from one's sense of self, motivation, and experience. To this end, I always engage with students as collaborators. I work with them to develop "Sarah's SAT Prep Plan" or "Mike's Writing Workshop", as opposed to just a general course of study meant for anyone..."

Kevin "...My preferred teaching style involves a little bit of give and take. I think I excel at giving students new ways to think about certain problems which may give them a better understanding of the material. I don't feel like it has been a productive session unless I come away having learned something as well. In my spare time, I am an avid sports fan and a seasoned fantasy sports player..."
Stacy "...I have worked at a newspaper and also do medical editing. I have helped young and adult students become better writers and readers. As a result, they have increased confidence. My desire is to see students progress, not only academically, but be strengthened with skills that will help them in the future..."
