Award-Winning Social studies Tutors in New York, NY
Rachel "I've been teaching and tutoring since 2002, throughout college and grad school and while doing neuroscience research. I love tutoring one-on-one because I can get to know students and gear the lessons toward their interests, which helps them learn more quickly, retain new skills better, and enjoy the tutoring sessions more. I particularly enjoy teaching science, writing, and test prep..."
Yamil "...I am willing to work with students of all backgrounds and skill levels. I graduated from Florida State University with two Bachelor's degrees in Political Science and Psychology, and I am currently a Political Science PhD candidate at Stony Brook University. At Stony Brook, I teach a PhD level Statistics course, so Statistics is my strong suit..."

Cassie "...Whether you are having difficulty with mechanics or are gearing up for an AP, SAT II or other standardized examination in English, I am willing and able to help, as I have taken virtually every test and have mastered English grammar. I also tutor for AP and SAT II examinations in General Chemistry and Biology, as well as for the corresponding introductory college courses for those subjects. If you're struggling with the algebra that's so often involved in solving chemistry problems (or if you're struggling with algebra I in general), I tutor for that as well..."
Joanna "...Sometimes, it can help to relate a difficult concept to a real-life analogy, to draw a diagram, or to make up silly memory devices (King Philip Came Over For Good Spaghetti, anyone??). However, it will always take a lot of hard work, concentration, and practice. It might be a tough journey, but I promise to make it worth the while and a fun experience. I bring more to the table than just having a solid educational background - my biggest strength is the investment that I will make in a student, to make sure that they succeed..."

I also work with students in a variety of subjects including Spanish, English, German, US History, European History, World History, Politics, Geography, Reading, Writing, Phonics, Business, Finance, and Math..."
Paul "... I began tutoring in High School but began to professionally tutor in college at Michigan State University in the local High Schools and Middle Schools. I'm passionate about tutoring literature, writing, history and ESL. My degree is in English Literature and I would love to help you approach subjects with a fresh start..."

James "... I also believe that each student is different and their tutoring should be tailored to their strengths and weaknesses. That is why I approach each student individually and attempt to match the sessions to what will be most helpful for each student. I am a positive person and will always approach a student with a positive outlook, even when they are having difficulty, because confidence is one key element in academic success. I have a Master's degree in English with a focus in writing..."
Genesis "I have been tutoring for over five years 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 from kindergarten to grade 12. The liberal arts curriculum I took at St..."

Nicole "...I like to know what my students are interested in, how they enjoy school, their favorite subjects, their day-to-day, their extra-curricular activities, etc. Usually I find that my students already possess all the tools within to overcome any academic difficulty they may be experiencing. They simply need a little personal attention and encouragement to bring out their confidence and comfort with a subject, as well as a platform where they feel safe to ask any questions..."
Olivia "...After graduating, I spent a year as an English teacher on an exchange fellowship in France at the University of Burgundy in Dijon, and just last year I completed a Master's degree in English Literature at the University of Oxford in England. Throughout my education and my travels, I have tutored students of all ages, ranging from preschoolers in China to adult learners in Massachusetts. After having taken a few months out of school to work at a translation agency and consider whether and in what capacity I wanted to teach, I have decided to go back to graduate school to get my certification in teaching high school English..."
