"Science, medicine, and foreign languages are all subjects I have always excelled in and I've been involved in tutoring and helping students for as long as I can remember. I tutored Spanish and Biology in High School, and at Brandeis University, I expanded my repertoire and taught some French, Chemistry, Anatomy, and Physiology. I hope to become a pediatrician not just because of the fancy doctor title, but because I genuinely want to help kids in need, especially those who grew up underprivileged, much like myself. My tutoring style is very hands on. I like evaluating problem areas for students and helping them with those while ...

"I recently completed a doctoral degree in Clinical Child psychology and am in the throes of a Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Pediatric Neuropsychology, with a special interest in learning, attentional, and "executive" difficulties. I enjoy helping children and teenagers to feel more confident in themselves as learners because I know this to significantly impact on their engagement in school and feelings about themselves outside of the classroom. I avoid a one-size fits all approach to tutoring because I know that children have distinct learning styles. Thus, I seek to understand my students' strengths and motivations in order to ...

"I'm a high school math teacher in the South Bronx. I have been a private tutor for the last 10 years now in Math (through Pre-Calculus), Literature (American, British, grammar), SAT I (Math, Verbal, Writing), and SAT II (Math I and II, Literature). Before moving to New York, I ran a private tutoring company based out of Rhode Island where I created curricula for various standardized exams (ISEE, SSAT, SAT I and II, ACT, MAT, GRE); I also offered college admissions guidance.
