Bert "I am a Yale University graduate with a degree in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology. Since first having started tutoring my peers in AP Biology in high school, I have soon moved on to experience the satisfaction of seeing my students grasp the subject material they once struggled with in areas like chemistry, math, and the SATs. Having been a student myself, I understand the anxiety and frustration of tackling a seemingly insurmountable, difficult subject material, and so, as a teacher, I believe it is absolutely necessary to start with the right learning environment..."

Lee "...One of my students achieved the highest score in her school on the Social Studies State Exam. In addition, my students improved by 30% after only 20 tutoring hours (on average, comparing pre-assessment and post-assessment scores). I have experience tutoring grades 1-8, but I really shine with elementary students. I strive to help students reach the next level; whether they are struggling to keep up, or striving to be at the head of the class..."

Lexi "...I have extensive experience tutoring foreign languages through my work as a Spanish & Arabic tutor at Princeton and through language exchanges completed while studying abroad in Mexico and Egypt (ages 18-30). I believe that learning a foreign language is hugely rewarding for students of all ages and welcome opportunities to tutor in Spanish or Arabic (or just to chat!) at all levels. I hope to work with you to develop the approach that works best for your learning style. I always adapt my plans to suit an individual student’s needs and interests, keeping in mind that the best I can do for any student is to engage them with the material and help them develop self-motivation..."

Henry "Following my career as a professional scientist, I have spent the past five years teaching students in both classroom and tutoring situations. In my role as tutor, my students enjoy the benefit that I can answer the question, "When will I use this material in the real world?" with compelling and interesting examples from my life, ranging from telescopes in space to programming graphics for video games. When tutoring, I adapt the instruction and explanation to best match my students' learning styles, interests, and conceptual difficulties..."

Jim "... I know the above subjects can be dry (and may even put some people to sleep!) at times, but I have an intense passion for them, and hope that I can share that passion by teaching you some of their exciting real-world applications (stock markets, global currencies, etc) in addition to your core curriculum. I try to keep things light and make learning as fun as I can! I have experience as a teaching assistant in graduate school/undergrad, as well as years of private tutoring experience across a wide range of topics. My academic background (Master/Bachelor degrees in Economics), professional exam experience (Passed CFA Levels I and II Exams, as well as Series 7, 63 86, and 87 exams), and on-the-job training (Equity Research) have provided my past tutoring clients with a unique perspective of integrating theoretical knowledge into real-world application. With a strong background in finance and economics, I have tutored many students interested in careers in financial services, and believe I can help younger students simply looking to master the fundamentals of intermediate mathematics. I ask for feedback at the end of every tutoring session, encourage questions on my teaching methods and material coverage, and include a free 10 minute discussion with each lesson for practical applications (e.g., stock market implications, tax policies, etc.) if so desired and applicable..."
