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..."
Christopher "...I enjoy imparting the Math and science knowledge to students who did not understand the subject as well as I did. I got a job as a tutor during my first year in college and have continued to tutor because I realized that I loved tutoring and I like to help people achieve their goals. Over the years while working in various capacities such as a network engineer, a process engineer and an environmental engineer I always tried to devote time to helping students. I tutored high school students, college students and adult learners..."
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..."
Joshua "...My favorite subject to tutor is Calculus, due to the fact that it has a fearsome reputation for students. Calculus, just like many other difficult problems, can be easily split into easier problems that are more manageable. Whenever I’m not working or studying, I enjoy going to the gym, learning new things, and doing martial arts..."
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.."
Jillian "...I enjoy tutoring Physics because it is easier to understand concepts behind Math and is most seen in everyday life. When I work with students, I look for holes in their understanding and try to fill in the concepts behind it. I strive for the student to be able to figure out problems without resorting to only memorizing formulas..."
Sherri "...Since completing my Bachelor's and Master's in Math Education at Hunter College/MaCaulay Honors College (2009), I spend most of my time doing volunteer work, private tutoring and teaching in public schools in New York City, but have also traveled as far as Thailand to follow my passion. I am a firm believer in the fact that every child can learn and that helping each child to do so is a combination team effort including himself and the educators and care takers in their lives. I like to encourage children to be unique and well rounded individuals that confidently feel they can contribute to their educational environment and successfully accomplish their personal best..."
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..."
