Award-Winning Science Tutors in New York, NY
Liz "...John's University, where I focus on science in 19th and early 20th century literature. Along the way, I have earned an MA in English. I have been tutoring since high school. My first experiences were working with elementary-aged students with all-around homework help, helping a French student staying in the US for the summer start to learn English, and helping a fellow classmate with physics..."
Laura "...Both my parents are teachers (one a violin teacher and another a professor), which has also influenced my ability and desire to help students learn. Beyond school, I studied the violin for 16 years, the piano five years, and sang in choir for six years. I also spent many years in elementary and middle school as a figure skater..."
Jaime "I am a New York transplant by way of San Francisco, where I studied Integrative Biology & Public Health at U.C. Berkeley (Go Bears!!) I graduated in May 2014 with my MPH in Infectious Disease Epidemiology from Columbia’s Mailman School of Public, and there I had the tremendous opportunity to be a lead graduate teaching assistant for several courses, including Qualitative Analysis, Survey Design, Program Planning, and Leadership & Innovation. I enjoy the dynamics of teaching and tutoring, as I work closely to problem solve and bridge learning gaps..."
Lucia "...I work very well with all ages: with young children because of my easy going and gentle nature, and with older students because of my patience and commitment to their individual success. I specialize in tutoring math and physics for all ages and levels, whether it's second graders learning to round or medical school bound college students mastering physics. I also tutor Spanish and French (I am a native Spanish speaker, and I took French for eight years and have lived in France), along with any science subject in the middle and high school level: physical sciences, environmental science, chemistry, and biology..."
Joseph "I grew up in Long Island, NY where I played Football and Baseball for most of my childhood. I then went to Fordham University where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Engineering Physics. While I was a student, I helped run a coffee house, which put on concerts several times a month. After graduation in 2011, I was hired by Photonics Industries International as a Laser Engineer. I still work there today, but now as a group Manager. We produce industrial grade solid-state lasers that are used in many applications. Most notably, many of our laser systems are used to process the glass and electronics used in many Apple and Samsung cellphones and other electronics. I have a passion for mathematics and sciences and I have been tutoring others ever since I was in high school. I believe that I can make positive contributions to any student’s academic endeavors.."
Connor "I'm an experienced tutor and I'm excited to work with you! I'm currently a student at Columbia University in the City of New York. If you are a visual learner, I am with you 100%. I understand how you work, and I think my teaching style and your learning style will match quite well. My specialty subjects are ACT and SAT prep, as well as general mathematics (through Algebra 2) and writing.."
Robert "I like Math and Physics, and I believe that I will be able to use my skills to help students learn more about these subjects. I will be patient, and I will try to make each session as interesting and fulfilling as possible. I will be responsive to the student's needs and will use my strengths in Math and Physics to help the student achieve success in these areas, always with thoughtfulness and consideration.."

Sunil "I am currently a Product Manager at a NYC-based technology start-up and previously worked in management consulting and R&D Engineering. I graduated from Stanford University with a degree in Bio-Mechanical Engineering and grew up in southern California. I have tutored dozens of students of all ages in many academic areas, including SAT and SAT II prep, over the past ten years. Nearly all of the students I have worked with have seen material gains in their academic/test taking abilities and many have been accepted to top-tier colleges of their choice..."
Nina "...I saw that every healthcare professional played the role of an educator in some capacity. As a research coordinator, I instructed patients on their course of treatment in clinical trials and relayed information about how medications could affect the body. After working for two years, I realized I would be most fulfilled with a career in medicine; I could combine my love for teaching, learning, and service..."

Erin "... Concurrent with my research and studies, I am also an Adjunct at City College, where I teach two lab courses, a Biochemistry course in the fall and a Biophysical Chemistry course in the spring. Prior to pursuing my PhD, I graduated from Northeastern University where my group won honorable mention in the National Student Design Competition from the American Institute of Chemical Engineering (AIChE) in my senior year. I was also a member of Engineers Without Borders (EWB), and won a grant from AIChE, to fund the design and building of water systems in Honduras and Uganda. After earning a Bachelor's Degree in Chemical Engineering with minors in Biochemical Engineering and Psychology from Northeastern University, I worked full time in the biological pharmaceutical industry producing therapeutics for Clinical Trials. I have always had a passion for tutoring and mentoring students in subjects like Chemistry, Biochemistry, Organic Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Design. I feel receiving good grades is important however, I am a avid believer in truly comprehending the material so that one’s grades are a true reflection of understanding..."
