Award-Winning Pre-Calculus Tutors in New York, NY
Katherine "... I went on to work for another, more individualized company as a lead academic tutor in test prep and multiple subjects. I was recruited by an online tutoring firm to write and perform their ACT prep video series. I currently assist students in Liberal Arts Studies through the Writing Center at the Juilliard School, and I continue to teach lessons in music..."
Aqeel "...To be able to take someone with an attitude of the topic being too hard to being confident enough to approach any challenge. I love showing how a deeper understanding can translate to being able to adapt to any situation you encounter on the test. This approach served me well as both an undergraduate and graduate teaching assistant..."
Laura "...Knowing that every student learns differently, allows me to teach to a student's strengths. For instance, if you are a musical learner, we might find a song that can help you become more fluent with your multiplication facts! If you are a hands on learner, I might set up a pretend store to teach you how to make change! I find that teaching something multiple times and in multiple ways allows my students to really grasp the underlying concepts behind even the most difficult problems before moving on. I also think that along with the creative side of learning, we have to be sure to teach our children how to think! It sounds so simple and you might be saying, "Of course, I know how to think!" Well, when you are given a word problem, do you know what comes to mind? Are you aware of the questions you are asking yourself and how you are planning to solve the problem? I will be sure to strengthen these thinking skills, which are very important in test taking..."
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. I attended a Montessori school from pre-school through 8th grade, and was heavily influenced by the focus on independent learning, discovery, and exploration as a way to develop a more thorough and better understanding of academic subjects..."
Christopher "...Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II/Trig, Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Calculus I, or Calculus AB for high school students. My favorite class to tutor is Algebra II/Trig, as it was one the toughest and most useful math classes I've taken in high school. Another favorite of mine is 7th Grade Math, as it is a very critical point in establishing all of the fundamentals that will be used for the rest of one's math education. When I am not buried in a book I enjoy Mountain Biking, Sailing, and Kayaking. I have studied Biochemistry for two years at SUNY Geneseo, and I am currently transitioning to a career path in Health Sciences closer to home. I believe I stand out as a tutor because I avoid mindless memorization and instead propose simple examples that explain why and how we come up with an answer. I was born with a love for learning and a passion for understanding. Let me help you find your true potential in science and math..."

Lawrence "My tutoring experience ranges from teaching a mid-20s Bloomberg employee how to program in Python to helping fellow MIT computer science undergraduates understand the more thorny minutiae of digital system design. I spend most of my free time programming, reading about transportation and politics, and playing softball most summer weekends.."

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..."
