"I spent this year working on a research project at Columbia University and teaching dance to elementary school children. I have been a tutor for almost eight years, and have worked with elementary, high school, and college students. I especially enjoy helping students with standardized exams such as the SAT, ACT, and GRE. Not only can I help with problem solving strategies, but I can also work with students to ease testing anxiety."

"My experience working and teaching students in other countries and cities has only serve to further my belief that there is no one 'right' model, yet more individualized instruction most often yields the greatest success. Learning is comprised of many components and how we teach our children should be regularly assessed to fit the needs of an evolving society. I have experience teaching and tutoring students with Special Needs, English Language Learners and Gifted and Talented children. Yet regardless of however a child is 'labeled' I believe all children, with the right amount of motivation and interest, can be given tools that will ...

" In addition, since high school, I have always been someone that friends entrust to look over and critique their papers before they submit final drafts. My teaching style features visual learning, mnemonics, and hierarchical organization of material. I find that hierarchically cataloguing information by topic and sub-topic helps students retain material, as students are not simply memorizing, but are understanding how concepts relate to one another. More personally, my hobbies include tennis, movies, and travel."

I specialize in Math and Science subjects because I am one of those weird people that enjoy those subjects very much! My favorite part of tutoring is getting to know my students and their families.

"Students can often be hesitant to admit they are unsure of concepts that were taught in previous years because they feel they are expected to know them. However, without a proper understanding of the simple facets of a subject, the more complicated features can never be truly internalized. I have always enjoyed explaining concepts to other people, and find it works best when I relate the subject to a personal interest of the student. The most rewarding aspect of teaching is watching a student attack a problem in a step-by-step manner and explain the significance of each step." ...

"My mother is a Spanish teacher, so I've been speaking it for most of my life. I love to make Spanish a fun and accessible skill for students while also explaining difficult grammar concepts in a way that clicks for them. I lived in Madrid for a year and have been able to travel to several other Spanish-speaking countries, and I hope to encourage a love of language as a means of connecting to other cultures. As a high schooler, I struggled with the time and attention necessary for the ACT and SAT, but was able to devise personal strategies that led me to high scores." ...

" 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 ...

" “One can't believe impossible things.” “I daresay you haven't had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” -Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland My goal is to share with students the beauty of mathematics and to enable them to become fluent in its language. As a New York State certified teacher and a long-time tutor, I not only share with students the concrete tools needed to solve math problems, but also the conceptual tools needed to think mathematically." ...
