"While at Yale, I taught part time at two different charter schools (Amistad Academy and Cooperative Arts and Humanities Magnet). I love working with kids, and have studied positive reinforcement techniques to enhance learning. I tend to tackle learning from a top-down, conceptual angle - I found in school that I could learn information by rote and do fine on a test, but could achieve much more through a more macroscopic conceptual understanding of the topic at hand. As a teacher of middle school chorus, I made it my goal to focus on that sort of macroscopic perspective on music, teaching kids who had no prior music experience to read music ...

"Having 10 years of experience as a state certified science teacher has afforded me the opportunity to work with a wide variety of students, from special needs to the gifted and talented. This experience, more than anything, has helped me understand each student learns differently, and that the key to education is adapting to each student’s learning style. I was recently awarded my MD, and have a dual masters in education and chemistry. My extensive science background combined with my experience and training as an educator has given me a unique set of tools that help me maximize the benefit from tutoring sessions while making the time ...

"I hold an undergraduate mathematics degree from Swarthmore College, and I'm currently in the process of applying to graduate programs in math education while also working a job in academic publishing. It was for this job that I moved to NYC in summer 2010, but prior to that I spent two years in Philly as a freelance tutor, substitute teacher, and creator of SAT prep materials. I worked primarily at the level of high school math (Geometry through Calculus), but occasionally had the opportunity to branch off with students into other areas of interest, such as Latin or music theory. In all cases, I loved revisiting my favorite academic ...

"I graduated last spring from Amherst College and moved to New York City after graduation to found a startup company. I have taught in France, Africa, and in Boston, and I am especially passionate about language tutoring (French, Latin), although I also love teaching math, writing, and helping students through the college admissions process (including SAT prep). I have a critical-thinking-focused approach to teaching; that is, I focus on helping my students understand the concepts and frameworks underlying their most difficult assignments, and I try to improve their study habits and problem solving strategies. Outside of the ...

They have made a great impact on my life in providing structure, motivating me and giving me the confidence that I often needed. I started tutoring during the summer between high school and college.

"Besides my passion for medicine and health, I have always loved teaching. I spent one year as an Undergraduate Student Instructor at UC Berkeley where I helped run a lab section for a general biology course. I also spent one year as an individual tutor for biology and general chemistry. One of my most fulfilling experiences as a tutor was working with several special needs students in the biological sciences; that experience really helped broaden my horizons as an educator. The summer after I graduated I was given the privilege of leading a study group for general biology." ...
