Award-Winning Middle School Math Tutors in New York, NY
Melania "Throughout my academic career, tutoring and mentoring were an important part of my intellectual growth and development. Sharing knowledge is not only the best way to convey deep and thorough understanding of a subject, but also incredibly rewarding. When working with a student, I seek to engage with him or her in order to utilize existing strengths to bolster areas for development and provide a unique, individualized learning plan that will ensure success. The satisfaction of watching a tutee gain mastery of a subject that was once a cause of confusion and frustration is unparalleled..."

Kelly "...Additionally, I've learned to actually listen to others, to find out what they are struggling with and not assume based on years of repetition. (Loosely translated, I find out what the actual problem is and not just guess like most teachers and professors do when they don't have enough time for each student.) I've acquired patience and experience, recognizing that a topic doesn't come as quickly to some as others, and that one explanation doesn't make sense for every student. I've learned to ask probing questions instead of simply giving an answer to a question, because research has shown that an individual who solves a problem themselves is significantly more likely to retain the information and feel a sense of pride and accomplishment leading towards further willingness to tackle new problems..."
