"in Neurobiology from the University of Texas at Austin, where I put myself through four years of schooling as an independent student, the most important lesson that I’ve learned in college was that in order to truly do better in school, and in life as a whole, I have to want to succeed, and I have to surround myself with people who feel the same way. My greatest successes academically came from professors and teaching assistants who truly wanted me to succeed, not because of the paycheck that came with my success, but because they cared about me as a student. That “connected” mentality sets me apart from commonplace tutors, and my personality ...

" To me, it is very important for a tutor to work with the student until the student can complete every problem on their own. This is my tutoring philosophy and I have applied it successfully for over a year of private tutoring. I have also worked extensively with students for whom English can be an obstacle: both in Italy teaching English, and here teaching math to immigrant children. I look forward to the opportunity to bring understanding to as many students as I can.."

"While law school prepared me well for drafting legal documents and writing complicated briefs, it did not provide me with a career for which I had passion. Serving as a prosecutor in the Bronx County District Attorney's Office, I saw first hand the tragic results of our city's failing educational system. I saw the widening achievement gap and I became passionate about closing it. I knew that my talents could be best employed by helping New York City's youth reach their full potential."

"In my free time I also tutored prisoners through a civic engagement pilot program as volunteer work. I love to experience foreign countries, and so I went abroad during my summers in college. One summer I lived in La Paz, Bolivia where I had a summer internship in a pediatric hospital. Another summer I participated in the program Princeton in Beijing which was an intense immersion program that, despite its rigor, ended up being one of my favorite experiences of my life."

"I have had experience with private tutoring in several math subjects and have previously taught a chemistry class at a summer enrichment program in my hometown. My past experience has been primarily with middle school and high school aged students, but having younger siblings has equipped me with the skills to relate to students at any age. The style I use when approaching tutoring is to approach problems from several different angles. I have found that when a student understands a problem holistically they are better able to apply the knowledge to new challenges." ...

"I tutor multiple levels of math, ACT and SAT prep in Math and English, and Spanish. My philosophy as a tutor is that students know more than they think they do. I like to guide my students through solving problems by using their prior knowledge and experience, and asking questions so that they can participate as much as I do. My favorite thing about tutoring is getting to know my students on an individual basis, and figuring out how they learn best."
