Peter "...I look for a student's specific learning style and approach material in this way. I have worked with students who have been accepted to Princeton and other highly selective universities, offering them advice with college essays and activity sheets. My essay advice is constantly informed by my knowledge of English literature..."
Adriana "...I particularly love tutoring Writing and Composition, Literature, History, and French - especially when an interdisciplinary approach helps the student approach information in new ways - since these fields are where my academic expertise and my interests align. I truly want to share my love of language, history, and literature with my students. I'm also passionate about every student's right to an effective education, so my goal as a tutor is to consider each student's individual style of learning and to teach them practical skills they can carry back to the classroom, the exam, and beyond..."
Stephanie "...I believe that the most important element in successful tutoring is the relationship between tutor and student. I work to create a rapport and find common ground with students in addition to imparting knowledge. I also believe that mistakes are an integral part of learning, and I encourage students to pursue their work as far as they can go on their own and not worry about "getting it right." If my education at Stuyvesant High School taught me anything, it is that the academic landscape is incredibly competitive, and a writing tutor can mean the difference between a dream college and a safety..."

Rebecca "I am a graduate of Purchase College with a double major in creative Writing and Journalism. I have been a private tutor for the past three years, tutoring math, English, and writing. I like to encourage my students to learn the broader reasons why an answer is right or wrong, so that they can learn a strategy to help them in the future with homework and tests instead of memorizing a specific set of rules. I try to make learning fun and enjoyable for everyone. Aside from tutoring I work as a writer on a freelance basis.."

Tobias "... Since then, I've worked primarily as an entertainer, but I have remained a tutor, as well, bringing the empathy and humor that make me a successful singer, actor, and comedian to GMAT and SAT classrooms and private tutoring. I've been fortunate enough to be able to do some interesting things in my life, and I have meet so many amazing, diverse people along the way. Everything I've learned along the way informs my tutoring..."
Suleman "...When I work with a student for the first time, I like to begin with the very basics of the subject to ensure the individual has a proper grasp of the fundamentals. Students can often be hesitant to admit they are unsure of concepts that were taught in previous years because they feel they are expected to know them. However, without a proper understanding of the simple facets of a subject, the more complicated features can never be truly internalized..."
Min "...My favorite subjects to tutor are ones with a humanistic aspect, such as history and biology, however, I am just as comfortable tutoring verbal skills, math, and physics. I'm lucky to say that tutoring fits into my overall life philosophy. Everything I do is about personal development, and when I help people learn, I also become more knowledgeable and better at communication..."

Christopher "...Reading and writing are my specialty; words are something I have always found to have great power, and assisting others in expressing their thoughts in nuanced, articulate ways has become a great passion of mine. I try to find a balance between structure and creative thinking when it comes to my tutoring style, and I firmly believe that everyone is capable of achieving great things given the right environment and skill set. Often, people discover my educational history and assume that I am an academic robot: all work and no fun..."
