"I've been teaching and tutoring since 2002, throughout college and grad school and while doing neuroscience research. I love tutoring one-on-one because I can get to know students and gear the lessons toward their interests, which helps them learn more quickly, retain new skills better, and enjoy the tutoring sessions more. I particularly enjoy teaching science, writing, and test prep. With test prep I've found that supplemental work on fundamental skills helps students improve their scores much more than working through a test prep book alone." ...

"I am a Columbia University graduate student in Philosophy. I have been tutoring for the last 6 years professionally. In general, I try to relate new material that I am tutoring back to concepts that a student has already grasped so that unfamiliar material takes on a familiar character. Furthermore, I try to have a student do some writing, some reading, and some discussion in each lesson, and in this way engage the main three modes of learning."

"I have been a math tutor for the past 15 years. While I teach general math subjects (basic math and algebra) I specialize in preparing students for the standardized tests that they take in middle and high school. My goal has always been to have the students understand the “mysteries” of math. While they are learning the concepts, they are simultaneously feeling increased confidence and empowerment. During my tutoring career I have worked with a diverse group of students, each with their own set of challenges."

"The pursuit of knowledge is one of the most rewarding journeys a young person can go on. Teaching is not about telling children what the "right" answer is, it's about showing them how to find the answer. I love tutoring because I enjoy being the one who guides these young minds as they figure out the world of academics. I understand that students achieve more when they have a tutor who can motivate them."
