Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Pre-Calculus tutors in New Jersey
" As a result, I did extremely well on My SHSAT and attended the Bronx H.S of Science. With the help of my parents and tutors I was able to do very well on my SAT's and gain acceptance to some of the toughest Undergraduate institutions NYC had to offer (NYU, Macaulay Honors College,etc). Most recently I graduated a top-ranked MBA program, and am ready to give back some of the knowledge I have gained throughout the years to those that need it. Currently I am an Adjunct at CUNY Queens College,teaching Mathematics to graduate and undergraduate students. I also tutor High School students (all Math Regents exams, and Math SAT) and Junior High School ...

"As a freshman, I began workshop leading in Introductory Chemistry courses and, soon thereafter, progressed to Organic, Quantitative and Thermodynamic Chemistry. I enjoyed my interaction with the students so much that, after graduating, I decided to adjunct lecture at a community college. There, I welcomed the exciting challenge of engaging adult learners in an introductory biology course with labs. Recently, I have garnered some extensive private experience tutoring middle to high-school age students in Algebra, Geometry, ELA, Chemistry and Biology, as an independent contractor for a couple of companies. I look forward to ...

"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 and understand music, rather than just sing it by rote. The result was a chorus of engaged, knowledgable singers equipped with the tools for a future as a music lover and maker. I have experience in both Math/Science and the ...

" I believe that students who are well prepared in both quantitative and verbal expression, think actively, and get into the habit of connecting the things they have learned, will have the raw material to excel in life, wherever it takes them. I went on from college to do a PhD in Physics at the University of Rochester, and that took me into an academic career for 6 years, where I taught students at Swarthmore College and Princeton University. I am also a professional writer, with over a dozen articles in technical and popular science, and bring deep scholarship to my teaching philosophy. My approach consists of understanding each student's ...

" When I am not busy with school or leisure, I will be helping you or your child grasp a difficult subject or improve a test score. I encourage my students to talk me through their thought process when tackling a problem, so that I can pinpoint exactly what is preventing them from arriving at the right solution. While getting the right answer is important in life, and especially on tests, my time at MIT and NYU Poly has taught me that fostering the analytical thinking skills required to arrive at the answer yourself are much more valuable life skills. On account of my background in engineering and the life sciences, my areas of expertise run the ...

"Tutoring students can be very simple and sometimes very complicated, but I always look for ways to make analogies to things students feel more comfortable with, so it doesn't seem like I'm speaking a foreign language to them. I get a personal sense of satisfaction when someone stops and goes, "oh, I've never thought of it that way before - now it all makes sense." In addition, often times I feel the education system here is misunderstood and students spend too much time memorizing "steps" to a subject rather than learning it, and inevitably end up failing when they are required to utilize the knowledge in future more advanced work. In my ...

"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. Students who needed a little bit of extra help for that course could always come to my study group to bolster their knowledge. My extensive experience tutoring and teaching my peers has taught me to approach problems from many different angles, allowing me to help students ...

"I am a huge math and science lover and would love to share my enthusiasm with everyone! I can provide solid help with lower level math and up to higher levels of biology (AP Biology) and some chemistry (Gen. Chem). In the past I have worked with elementary school aged children as well as high school peers! While at UNC I tutored at a human rights center, which helped elementary school students with homework, test prep etc. In addition while a calculus student in high school, I had the privilege of tutoring a few students in pre-calculus and Algebra and absolutely loved it! These students all ended the class with A's. On another note, as a future ...

" What makes me a great tutor is my ability to understand the needs of my tutee and tailor my teaching strategy to his or her needs. Additionally, I have an uncanny ability to connect with my tutees so that tutoring becomes something more than “extra” work; it becomes a fun, challenging journey to learn the unknown. ."
