Sierra "I have been helping students by Math tutoring for five years and know how stressful taking exams can be, so I take a very individualized approach to make sure the students understand the material rather than knowing how to implement a formula. This gives them more confidence and flexibility in dealing with the curve-ball questions that are notorious for stressing students out. There is nothing more exciting to me than helping a student realize just how easy they find material they used to find impossible and his/her pride from that discovery.."

Sima "I have a BA in Anthropology from Barnard College and a MS in Epidemiology from the University of Massachusetts, and I am currently doing cancer research at the Mount Sinai Medical Center. As a student I was never been able to decide on a favorite subject because I felt anything I studied in school could be fun and much easier if approached with the right attitude. Instead of boring memorization, I like to look for patterns and think of creative approaches to study subjects that can otherwise be very frustrating..."
