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.

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..."
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..."

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..."
Maher "...I teach through this thought process, and my goal as a teacher is to use concise, meaningful ways that really get to my students in order to help each one achieve academic and personal success. Tutoring for me is not just about helping my student get a good grade on an exam, but rather its true value lies in boosting my pupil's confidence. Many students feel that they are simply not cut out to understand material, and this feeling is the actual block to learning. My students should and will know this fear is just not true, and I make it my mission to prove it by the time the session is over..."
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..."

I offer SAT test prep, AP test prep, and academic tutoring in English, History, and Social Studies. I also offer assistance with academic essays, college admissions essays, and college applications.
