Carefully selected, highly-credentialed Science tutors in New Jersey
"I spent this year working on a research project at Columbia University and teaching dance to elementary school children. I have been a tutor for almost eight years, and have worked with elementary, high school, and college students. I especially enjoy helping students with standardized exams such as the SAT, ACT, and GRE. Not only can I help with problem solving strategies, but I can also work with students to ease testing anxiety."

" My teaching methods were developed from my experiences as a student and as an aspiring clinician. Learning is a active process and a successful teacher encourages his or her student to not only answer the question immediately in front of them, but to identify the elements in the process which will produce positive results over and over again. Over the past twelve years I have prepared students for ACT, SAT, and SHSAT exams as well as middle and high school math. I have seen many students hit walls when they are studying, but in a one-on-one setting I am given the opportunity to create a tutoring plan that is tailored around the student’s ...

"My experiences have been uniformly positive and I've found that any student, no matter their previous experience or abilities, is eager to learn and to do well. I believe that it is the role of the teacher to harness these natural energies and put them to good use by making the material more relatable to the student and their own interests. This will only be accomplished if the teacher is both patient and understanding. Besides my interest in math and science my other interests include Latin, French, computer programming, basketball, and Go.." ...

"I do not teach "at" students, rather, I teach them to think for themselves. I believe the best tutor is one that allows the student to grow by helping them develop the skills necessary for success. I have taught students at every skill level, from Special Education to Advanced Placement. Each person learns differently, and it is my challenge to reach that student and show them how to succeed on their own.."

"I have tutored for CUNY York College's Academic Achievement Center, Chemistry Department, as well as The Biology Department.

"I've taught students about the environment while on 5 hour long hikes through redwood forests in the same year I taught human biology to students at a private school. Each experience improved and broadened my educational skill. Each experience has also deepened my commitment to teaching and tutoring in the natural sciences. I love the depth and complexity of science, but I refuse to let that complexity make the subject inaccessible. In fact, I've found that with the right approach my students can become capable and enthusiastic in science." ...
