Benny "...Afterwards, I became a Senior Teaching assistant to help other Teaching Assistants in their group sessions. My other tasks included peer tutoring in the Office of Undergraduate Biology in all of the biology, chemistry and physics courses. Through my experience, I have recognized the importance in placing comprehension over memorization on my own grades and the students I have tutored so far..."
Danielle "...I have been tutoring young children and adolescents in Math, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus (I received a 4 out of 5 score on the AP Calculus examination), Reading, Writing, History, AP History (I received a 5 out of 5 score on both the European and American History AP examinations), Biology, SAT preparation, and ACT preparation throughout my high school and collegiate career as well as during my tenure as a certified Math teacher. I also have experience tutoring graduate Masters and PHD candidates in the fields of Latin language acquisition and advanced Latin prose. Moreover, I was a History major at Princeton and wrote a 125-page thesis, so I can definitely tutor in the areas of collegiate-level History and Writing. I am a very amicable, humorous, dedicated, and hardworking individual who has a natural gift at gently encouraging people to be their best..."
Viola "...I first started tutoring in my first year of high school and continued through my four years which definitely helped me mature in that time. There is something so unexplainably gratifying in seeing one's frustration in not understanding a concept turn into excitement once he/she has grasped it. In order for a child to succeed, it is key that they are helped through this frustration stage so that they can regain the confidence to tackle any problem put before them..."
Hope "...I've taught middle school students basic and advanced algebra, geometry, and trigonometry, as well as tutored high school students on Precalculus and Calculus. I have equally strong experience teaching and tutoring all three sections of the SAT. What makes me a great tutor is my ability to empathize with the needs of each of my tutees and help them figure out how they best learn the material..."
Laura "...essay editing), Biology (including AP), Chemistry (including accelerated and AP), SAT, and French (through French III). My own educational experience has had a formative impact on my style as a tutor.

Dennis "I am currently attending New York University where I am pursuing a degree in Finance and Statistics. I have previous experience tutoring individuals in math, a subject I have always excelled at academically. My knowledge and interest in mathematics, makes it easy for me to frame and deconstruct seemingly complicated concepts and theories in ways students will be able to understand and remember..."
Grace "...While learning to teach at a junior preparatory school in New Hampshire, I worked with small classes of middle school students learning everything from ESL and creative writing to Algebra II (and even got to teach an elective in introductory graphic design, which is one of my major hobbies). I've also worked heavily with older students, and served as a college tutor in Calculus and Spanish. While I'm often called on for writing advice and have a strong humanities background, I love helping students with math and logic problems (including those on the SAT and GRE), which often require creative and innovative approaches..."

Alan "...They didn't only challenge me with questions, but they challenged how I learned too. Education isn't just about solving annoying questions and remembering your No. 2 pencil for your exam..."
Melania "... 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. Being able to guide someone in this journey is a true privilege..."
