"I took a course, got private math tutoring, took practice tests, and came up with essay prompts. Ultimately, I got a very strong score, ranking me in the 96th percentile. I have since graduated cum laude from Tufts University with a BA in English and minors in Art History and Media Studies. As a member of the National Honor Society and Peer Leaders, I decided to use my experience to help others. I knew there had to be other students out there who were extremely bright and simply didn’t excel at standardized tests."

"I'm in New York studying theater and voice but miss my science classes and students like crazy! I'm particularly strong in biology but also totally comfortable with chemistry, English and writing, social studies/history, and test prep. As a teacher my style is to help students discover the answers on their own, and become more confident in their ability to use critical thinking. When I'm not tutoring you can find me running or playing with my mutt Franklin!."

"I have equally strong experience teaching and tutoring all three sections of the SAT. What makes me a great tutor is my ability to empathize with the needs of each of my tutees and help them figure out how they best learn the material. My proficiency in the subject and strong teaching background are two different skills; combined together, they make me an understanding and efficient tutor. In my free time, I love meditating, swimming, and checking out museums (especially MoMA).."

" When I tutor, I feel that I am able to empathize with my student’s frustrations and this establishes a bond of trust. From there, I am able to motivate my students to do their homework with a new positive attitude. Of course discipline is also of the utmost importance, as I sometimes have to become a taskmaster and gently prod my students to stay focused and explore their work from a vantage point of curiosity rather than boredom, which I have found to be the best strategy to get them interested in their work.."

"I like to teach with real-world examples, mnemonic devices, and visual aids; making connections and drawing one's own conclusions are lasting tools in learning that far surpass what memorization and rote work can achieve. I am also fluent in several languages, and enjoy teaching Italian, Spanish, and English as a second language, using immersion techniques. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Literary Translation from Brown University. This year I am embarking on a new academic pursuit; I plan to pursue a PhD in Molecular Biology beginning in the fall." ...

" I am an experienced teacher and tutor, having taught abroad in both Ankara, Turkey and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil after graduation. While I am available to tutor many subjects, my expertise lies in SAT and GRE test prep, reading, writing and editing college essays. In Turkey, I taught English language and writing at Bilkent University, one of the top English language universities in the country. I worked with small classes of university students, helping them prepare for their entrance exams and tutoring writing and essay construction to advanced students. I designed my own eight-week courses, including a course on writing research ...

" I'm always pleased and rewarded to guide a student to a higher level. The feeling of success is shared by both the tutor and the student because I work as a teacher, a mentor, a cheerleader and a partner with my students. As an Art teacher or Classroom teacher, I taught children from Kindergarten through 6th grade and then went on to work with Middle School Students in NYC tutoring subject matter and test preparation. I feel honored to be able to work with students one-on-one to develop a real rapport with each one."

"I found that the presence of the language barrier made it all the more essential to be able to break down what was being taught into the most easily understandable and digestible form. It also taught me to be able to explain concepts in many different ways. Before that, I tutored several different students in math and science at both the middle and high school levels. Personally, I get a great deal of satisfaction out of finally grasping difficult mathematical concepts, and I love helping those who aren't quite as intuitive math students feel that as well. I look forward to helping your child succeed!." ...
