Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Math tutors
" Despite the general aversion to math and science among high school students, virtually all of my students improved their grade. My success can be attributed to efforts in relating mathematical and scientific problems to real world phenomena. I have learned that a student best comprehends this type of material when they are able to connect it to processes that they encounter in daily life. Bridging the gap can transform a student’s perception of science from a dry, remote experience to a colorful and palpable understanding of nature.." ...

"I am especially passionate about teaching math - I want the next generation to love math as much as I do. My teaching style is creative, collaborative, and interdisciplinary. After I get to know a student on a personal level, I craft lessons that cater to the student's interests and personal learning style to engage them and make the learning more relevant and meaningful. I often integrate subjects to enhance learning - for instance, I teach math using visual tools (drawing, manipulatives, role play) in order to make the abstract more tangible and accessible. My 4th grade class was the highest performing class in math in the entire grade ...

"These programs’ participants ranged from elementary to high school students. I kept their schedules, interacted with parents, supervised activities, and aided the instructors. Last semester, I also tutored an introductory biology course for non-majors at Kenyon College. I sat in on lectures and provided weekly and occasionally bi-weekly assistance outside of class at the college’s Math and Science Skills Center."

"My favorite subject to tutor is physics because I can tailor my example problems to the student's interests. In the past, I created football related questions for a student who was on the football team. In addition, I have tutored in standardized test prep including SAT and MCAT. In my free time, I enjoy playing ultimate frisbee with friends, hiking, watching movies, and swimming."

"While I hope to teach throughout my adult career, I am also applying to medical school this year. A tutor I once had told me that I had the determination and intelligence to become a doctor, and his words have stayed with me through today. If I can similarly inspire my own students, hopefully they will pursue their own dreams as a result of their academic confidence.."

" I anticipate completion of the program in May 2013, hoping to begin medical school in the Fall of 2014. While undertaking the program at Columbia, I had various tutoring experiences, beginning with a volunteer tutoring position at Page Turners in midtown, Manhattan. In addition, I maintain a position at Sylvan Learning Center as a mathematics tutor, working with students from K-12 in basic math skills as well as in higher level mathematics courses such as algebra, trigonometry, geometry and pre-calculus. I also worked at EBL Coaching located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, where I work one on one with students in physics and ...

"It is a common mistake of tutors to simply lecture rather than explain and interact. That is something you need not fear from me. I am a big fan of individual one-on-one tutoring, since a student's individual needs can often be overlooked in a classroom setting. It is my goal to make up for any deficits that a student might experience from lack of teacher attention and to advance his or her knowledge beyond that of his or her peers. From my year of experience with children with autism and language impairment, I believe that I have learned patience and understanding in addition to efficient communication of material. I would be honored to tutor ...

"Also, I believe the SAT tests more critical reading than any other skill, and Iencourage students to be very detail-oriented about what the question is actually asking. Through tutoring at Chapman, I am used to students coming to me because they are having trouble with a subject, or just because they want to stay on track and excel. Through my experience teaching violin, I am comfortable with students of all ages.."
