Sarah "... I am most passionate about standardized testing preparation. I know how grueling the preparation for and day of the test can be, and I enjoy teaching students the methods that I have used to conquer these tests, and I encourage students to find their own techniques as well. I like to stress the big picture in test prep, and the importance of knowing how to take a test, including pacing, skipping problems, recovering from a mistake; things beyond just memorizing formulas..."
Krishna "I have tutored extensively throughout high school. I was a private tutor to students ages 7-14 in math, reading, writing, and science. I helped found a mentorship organization that tutored elementary-aged children in reading, writing, and math in preparation for the New York State exams..."
Leah "...I have utilized this approach for many years with proven results. My previous students were regularly asked to complete university surveys to evaluate my effectiveness as a teacher, my ability to stimulate interest learning in a topic, and my concern for their wellbeing, and I consistently received satisfactions ratings above 90 percent. In terms of my own evaluation, I feel I have been a successful tutor once I have: provided students with the right tools and methods to effectively communicate their ideas; instilled a love of learning and thinking; and built students’ confidence so they actively engage with the world in a manner that befits their unique talents and desires..."

Anne "I currently work as a math teacher in Brooklyn and would love the opportunity to work with you to help you to not only achieve your immediate goals (passing a class, test, etc), but also foster a deeper understanding of the subject matter that will help you into the future. I'm certified to teach grades 7-12 which means I possess a mastery of pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, algebra II, pre-calculus, trigonometry, statistics and AP AB and BC Calculus. The liberal arts curriculum I took at Stanford University has ensured that I not only can tutor students in technical fields but also humanities. I'm a voracious reader, especially of historical non-fiction, so I would especially enjoy tutoring for history and English in addition to mathematics. I am a savvy test taker and would be able to teach your child not only the content necessary to excel at the SAT and other standardized tests, but also how to utilize strategies to maximize efficiency and accuracy. In teaching, I enjoy connecting the subject matter to topics that would not necessarily seem relevant to the lesson in order to engage the student on a deeper level..."

Furthermore, my undergraduate training in human development allows me to confidently work with others whom are different ages and cultures..."

I've spent the past few years tutoring my college peers in organic chemistry and working as a teaching assistant for introductory biology classes. I particularly enjoy tutoring organic and biochemistry because they’re the building blocks for other biology courses, and for the world around us..."
Cheryl "I believe every student has the capacity to succeed if given both encouragement and the tools to learn. Every failure is an opportunity for growth, both academically and personally. I am a graduate of New York University with a B.A..."

Working with diverse students of different ages with various learning styles has helped me to be flexible when tutoring.
