Award-Winning SAT Math Tutors in New York, NY
Rachel "...I particularly enjoy tutoring organic and biochemistry because they’re the building blocks for other biology courses, and for the world around us. It’s hard to make atoms and molecules significant when they’re presented alone, but if you can put them in context by connecting them to things that are visible and tangible, these abstract concepts become a new way of understanding how life works! I’m excited by the subjects I have the privilege of teaching, and I think that’s what makes my tutoring style special. I really believe that anyone can enjoy learning about the most complicated topics as long as they have someone who’s enthusiastic about explaining them in comprehensible ways..."
Richard "... I believe the key to tutoring is to help the student have an "Aha!" moment, when a previously misunderstood concept suddenly makes sense. Such moments give students a real sense of confidence in themselves and agency in their learning, as their hard work has paid off. Because of this, when teaching I aim to get my students to come to conclusions themselves, instead of giving them the answers. My main academic interest is mathematics, specifically algebra and algebraic geometry..."
Cynthia "With a Masters in Statistics and a Bachelors in Applied Mathematics, I have a passion for numbers and problem solving. I enjoy empowering students to feel confident in their coursework and give them the tools to succeed. I am comfortable with all levels of mathematics from pre-alegebra through college statistics."
Nicholas "...My goal is to find that way, and through understanding why my student is having difficulties, convey the lessons in simple and satisfying means. I am not an impersonal tutor. I want to become friends with every person I teach. Through experience I've found that this significantly enhances the success of teaching anything..."
Alexandra "I'm a recent New York transplant from the wilds of suburban New Jersey. I moved to the city this summer after finishing a Master's Degree in Near Eastern Studies at Princeton, where I also did volunteer work as an English composition teacher. I started teaching and tutoring eight years ago as an assistant Arabic teacher at a language camp, and I've been working in education and/or academia ever since! I especially love teaching writing, reading skills, and foreign languages: I'm a believer in the power of clear and thoughtful communication..."
Ben "I am a first year student at Columbia University in New York City, pursuing my B.A. in Political Science with prospective minors in East Asian Studies and Human Rights. I grew up in Berkeley, California, and graduated Berkeley High School in 2015 with the International Baccalaureate Diploma..."
Jesse "...I tutor in English, French, and standardized tests, and especially enjoy helping students think about subjects creatively and from new angles. My largest interest, outside of education, is music. I worked throughout college as a music director at Wesleyan's radio station, and currently work as a producer and staff writer for Afropop Worldwide, a non-profit radio show dedicated to African music and music of the African diaspora..."
Jose "...I am now resuming my career in the U.S. as I continue applying to part-time graduate programs. In the interim, I am an instructor for Varsity Tutors and develop descriptive analysis for all of Major League Baseball’s online entities..."
Angela "I believe that everyone can achieve academic successes under proper guidance. I'd like to be the light tower for my students on the endless sea of study. I want to help them to find their own ways to the right place..."
Michele "...Lessons from me will help you improve your communication skills, depth and breadth of English language, and gain confidence in using the English language. During the lessons, I provide information about American culture and lifestyle to assist with acculturation, as well. I have taught students from elementary school to adults, privately as well as in schools, colleges and adult education centers, and I am currently a faculty member at a local community college. I am certified in Teaching English as a Second Language and also have a Masters Degree in International Education from Harvard University, with a focus on educational systems in other countries..."
