Currently, I work as a research scientist at The Mount Sinai Hospital studying pediatric immunology and biochemistry. I will be conducting research until I begin medical school in Fall 2013. I have over four years of tutoring experience including a teacher's assistant at Skidmore, working with local high school student,s and coordinating with my ice hockey team to complete several community service projects in our area.

I will enter medical school in the Fall of 2015. While I tutor a broad range of science courses, I most enjoy teaching Human Physiology, Biology, and Organic Chemistry..."
Steve "In 2013, I graduated from Muhlenberg College with a B.Sc. in physics and mathematics. For a long time, I had been averse to teaching, but now I find tutoring to be an experience worth continuing..."

Rod "... With regards to learning, I believe there are 3 keys: practice, practice and more practice! In other words, my message to you is be not afraid. Any seemingly complex knowledge can be learned with sufficient understanding and review. I am here to guide you every step of the way. When I am not working or teaching, I am cooking, exercising, reading, meditating or just being with friends having a relaxing time..."
John "...While I was there, I worked as a teaching assistant for the chemistry department; I prepared solutions and answered an ocean of questions about laboratory technique and chemistry in general. I love math and science in general, but my favorite subjects to teach out of the whole bunch are biology (middle school through MCAT biology and college microbiology) and physics. Math and science are among the most daunting subjects for many students, but they're the most intuitive subjects at their core..."
Dirk "...I’m happy that I could incorporate that fascination into my career. In addition to my desire to learn more about science and to apply that knowledge, I hold a passion for teaching. I enjoy the interaction with students and try to convey my passion for science..."
Gregory "...By providing the students with a concrete example, it is much more likely they will retain the information. My clients range from high school students to matured adults who are continuing their education. Most recently at Columbia I taught recitation classes composed of 15-25 students. This gave me a thorough understanding of my class’s aptitude resulting in the generation of compatible tests..."

Anne "Hi there! I am a 28-year-old native New Yorker and current Doctor of Physical Therapy student at Columbia University. Before arriving to my current career choice of physical therapy, I did architecture, visual arts, I studied languages (Swedish and Russian, which I now speak fluently), took subjects in the humanities and the sciences, became a Pilates instructor, and also played drums and wrote music professionally! As a result, I can truly get in the mindset of a student who is learning something - NO question is out-of-bounds or silly - it all comes from a place where the mind is trying to incorporate new information. There is nothing worse than an expert "teacher" who has forgotten what the various stages of learning was like! I work with students of all ages and in all the subjects I've listed..."

Arianna "Long before I graduated in May 2013 from Muhlenberg College with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a minor in Public Health, I knew that I wanted to take a gap year between my undergraduate education and medical school to pursue personal interests of mine. These interests include continuing my experience as a tutor, focusing on my physical fitness by jogging, swimming and playing sports, traveling, spending time with my family and friends, and partaking in new activities that I have yet to become involved in due to time constraints. For instance, after graduating from college, I have so far had the chance to work with children as a lifeguard at a private day camp and as a volunteer at Celtic Charms, a therapeutic horseback riding center for the physically and mentally handicapped..."
