" I am a former New York City public school classroom teacher, and have worked as an instructor for several summers at the Hofstra University Summer Camps, teaching computer applications. In addition, I have been a supplemental education provider, an SAT proctor and prep class teacher, and currently teach chess to first- through fifth-graders. I enjoy words, word games, reading, mathematics, discovering new things, staying in shape, and sharing what I have learned with others. I am a fan of classic television sit-coms, music from various genres, and my often-hapless yet always-loved New York Mets." ...

" I work with my students to find out how best they learn, then I structure the lessons accordingly and teach clearly to help them master the material and excel.

I am currently helping the student to continue to excel in the Bronx Science coursework. I have also tutored students to gain admission into competitive Gifted and Talented schools.

"As an individual who still holds fond memories of the talented teachers who influenced my learning and career goals, I have found my time spent as a tutor to be an invaluable and incredibly fulfilling experience. I believe that the children and families with whom I have worked would describe me as a patient, creative, and dedicated instructor, one who endeavors to narrowly tailor her teaching methods to suit the needs of each individual student. I truly love working with children and hope to someday enter a career in education, whether as a classroom teacher or more indirectly, by working to affect educational policy. My strongest areas ...

" In general, I try to relate new material that I am tutoring back to concepts that a student has already grasped so that unfamiliar material takes on a familiar character. Furthermore, I try to have a student do some writing, some reading, and some discussion in each lesson, and in this way engage the main three modes of learning. That being said, I try to modify my teaching style to best benefit the type of student I am tutoring. Over the last year, I have been teaching test-prep for the ACT, SAT, and High School Entrance Exams, as well as high school writing; US History; Literature; and Chemistry, and all grade-school subjects." ...

"Once, I had gotten my undergraduate degree in psychology/neuroscience, I decided to pursue a masters degree in education. I love working with classrooms full of students, but I also love working with people one-on-one.

"My tutoring experience started in high school with SAT prep for a group of 3-5 students that needed help (the students attended the same high school as me at the time). Later, I moved on to tutoring students in a more structured environment in subjects involving biology, physics, and more advanced mathematics such as calculus. Although I do follow a very straightforward curriculum, my teaching style is more adaptive than it is rigid. Private tutoring offers the benefit of sitting down one-on-one with a student so that I can zero in on problem areas and misunderstood concepts." ...
