Casey "I am an undergraduate student at New York University, working towards a Bachelor of Arts in English, available to tutor in Language Arts, History, SAT Verbal and Critical Reading, and ACT English and Reading. As an former editor at a daily student newspaper, I also can provide a helpful eye for any essays, college or otherwise. Being passionate about the English language, I believe that effective communication is a cornerstone in any proper education, and that all students are capable of being effective communicators and readers..."
Ashleigh "... I helped them learn the importance of study skills, learning styles, and communication so they could more effectively help the students they tutored. Math has always been my favorite subject to tutor because I love helping students build their foundation in whatever course they are taking to help them be successful. I have always been fascinated by the way different topics in Math are intertwined..."
Kathryn "...I have also conducted research in Linguistic Anthropology, I wrote my thesis on one of Khalid Sheikh Mohammad's (9/11 mastermind) pre-trial hearings at Guantanamo Bay Prison. I have experience as a writing tutor. Additionally, I would love to help impart my love (or at least appreciation) of numbers to you! I played soccer from the age of 5-19, including 2 years in college.I was on the Peace and Conflict Studies Committee at Grinnell, and I have participated in several other social justice causes that I would be happy to talk about..."
Rachel "I've been teaching and tutoring since 2002, throughout college and grad school and while doing neuroscience research. I love tutoring one-on-one because I can get to know students and gear the lessons toward their interests, which helps them learn more quickly, retain new skills better, and enjoy the tutoring sessions more. I particularly enjoy teaching science, writing, and test prep..."
Peter "... My tutoring method is to cover the material the student will be working on, have them do some practice problems, and when they get to a point where they're getting a lot of them right have them take me through some problems while they explain the steps. I have learned over the years that the only way to know if you have mastered a subject is to see if you can teach it to someone else. If the student can explain the subject back to me sufficiently well then I know that we are ready to move on to new material..."
Saul "...It was there that I gained my first teaching experience. I instructed students ranging from new recruits to senior officers and enlisted soldiers. After completing my service obligation, I earned a law degree from Rutgers University and a Master of Journalism degree from Temple University..."
Hamza "... I prefer understanding concepts, rules, and formulas over memorization because I believe that when you understand them for what they are used for an why, it builds a lasting comprehension that is easier to grasp. I prefer working through practice problems and believe that practice really does make perfect when it comes to Math. For high school students, I could also give advice for applying to colleges since I am a recent graduate. I live in Bergen County, but was born, raised, and went to school in Hudson County..."
Jessica "...Some experiences we are prepared for and some we are prepared to learn from. For me, I treat each day as the opportunity to learn more about anything. With this in mind, I find it more beneficial when teaching my students..."
Kevin "...While I am proficient in a number of areas, I really enjoy helping students with Math and Logic based subjects. These subjects can often be stumbling blocks for students, especially when it requires applying a framework for problem solving the student is unfamiliar with. But I've found that with patience for a student's needs and working through each step in the problem solving process a student can achieve the greatest payoff: the "Ah-ha!" moment of understanding..."

I am most comfortable teaching the SAT Reading/Writing and helping youths with their personal statements..."
