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.

Joe ...certified teacher in both elementary and special education. I work with many students who are struggling with reading and math. Tutoring should be a fun experience in which the student feels comfortable in the learning process. Tailoring to each child’s needs is important because each one of them has a unique style of learning. I have tutored many students with positive results. I am also familiar with test prep strategies for NYS exams.... Each child is unique and requires different learning strategies. My goal is to encourage thinking rationally, so that students can apply this in familiar or unfamiliar situations.

Abdullah ...up. Ultimately, it is this mindset and the passion that comes with it that make me a great tutor. Furthermore, my students and their parents were very happy with their progress through the curriculum while they were with me. Some of my students even progressed far into school, and city wide competitions, such as the annual speech competition. In regard to their age, they had ranged from elementary to high school age students.... "Discimus ut Serviamus: We learn so that we may serve." I believe that learning is intrinsically a social process and is very goal oriented. If you feel that there is a purpose behind learning a subject, some material or a task, you are more likely to enjoy and feel better about the process of learning. It also helps to know that the task you will be learning about may one day be of use to your or someone you know. It is because of this, and other reasons that I find teaching to be such a refreshing exercise. It gives purpose to learning that has occurred oftentimes many years before the need of the knowledge and satisfies a primal urge to teach our younger generation what we have gained through our experiences. It is almost as if you are creating a legacy with every student that you work with, and by doing so, you also remaster the material you teach. It is ultimately a privilege and a duty of those of us who have more knowledge to pass it on to those of us who come after.

Eric ...Stanford in August. As an undergrad, I scored a 790/800 on the GRE quantitative reasoning test (the SAT's bigger, meaner brother). I also received a scholarship for being top of my financial math class, which gave me the chance to volunteer three days per week as a math tutor in a high school after-school program. I am interested in spending some time each week doing something I enjoy– HELPING YOUNG PEOPLE CONQUER MATH.

Kim ...and able to teach me the material. I know I succeeded when my students reach their goals and are no longer struggling but excelling. I believe this quote from Thomas Carruthers perfectly sums up my view on tutoring, "A teacher is one who makes himself progressively unnecessary." In my free time I enjoy reading the newspaper, scrapbooking, and being in nature. I love to travel and explore new places. I enjoy taking classes and learning...

Yuan ...you are or what you know. Anyone can learn if they have the drive and patience to achieve. I like to find out what kind of learners my students are before I dive into a topic. Then I can come up with a style of teaching that best fits the individual, because who wants to sit in a lecture if you are the kind of person that like to play with their lessons and vice...

I don't know anything about music, in fact I took an elementary piano lesson in my last semester of university, and received a B- for it! Turned out to be the worst grade in my student history, and robbed me of my Magna Cum Laude by 0.003 points! Still bitter? Yes. I love travelling and I've studied abroad two times. So far I've been...
