" “When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” -Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland My goal is to share with students the beauty of mathematics and to enable them to become fluent in its language. As a New York State certified teacher and a long-time tutor, I not only share with students the concrete tools needed to solve math problems, but also the conceptual tools needed to think mathematically. As a result, I often bring models so that students can gain a visual understanding of mathematical formulas." ...

"Learning is comprised of many components and how we teach our children should be regularly assessed to fit the needs of an evolving society. I have experience teaching and tutoring students with Special Needs, English Language Learners and Gifted and Talented children. Yet regardless of however a child is 'labeled' I believe all children, with the right amount of motivation and interest, can be given tools that will improve their academic performance. The onus is on having a good teacher who has a tool kit full of methods and who can be creative in approach!! ." ...

"I have equally strong experience teaching and tutoring all three sections of the SAT. What makes me a great tutor is my ability to empathize with the needs of each of my tutees and help them figure out how they best learn the material. My proficiency in the subject and strong teaching background are two different skills; combined together, they make me an understanding and efficient tutor. In my free time, I love meditating, swimming, and checking out museums (especially MoMA).."

"Some of my interests are health and exercise, current events, eating, sleeping, soccer, volleyball, swimming, frisbee, and trying to resurrect my high school track days. My first tutoring position was with a 7th grade student who had trouble keeping up in class due to a mild learning difficulty. This experience developed in me a great deal of patience and an ability to creatively try to explain concepts when it seemed that mere repetition wasn't working. With that student, I gained experience tutoring up to junior high level math, high school science, english, history, as well as SAT verbal reasoning prep." ...

" My personal educational philosophy is one that accommodates the different ways students learn. I believe it is important for an educator to understand how a given student learns in order to best reach that student. No where is this more true than in one-on-one tutoring. I also believe it is an educator's job not only to teach, but to instill a love of learning."

"I like evaluating problem areas for students and helping them with those while strengthening areas that they're more comfortable in. When I tutor, I try my best to place myself in my student’s shoes so that I can see where the problems lie and how we can tackle them together. In most cases, I realize that students have difficulties not because they can’t do the work but because they need to approach it differently, from another perspective. I try to integrate concepts that make learning more enjoyable and relatable for each individual student." ...

" I wrote about legal and financial issues and discovered that I really enjoy the law - so I moved to Williamsburg, Virginia for three years and studied at the College of William & Mary, the country's oldest law school. During the week, I am a practicing attorney who has taken and passed three bar exams - each on the first attempt. I believe that any student can achieve and that no one style fits everyone. I maintain flexibility and adjust my methodologies for each student that I work with. However, I generally like to keep my sessions casual, focusing on improving the student's confidence and scores, as I have found that some students become ...

" A thousand questions directed to me means that you're interested and they never deter me or frustrate me, so ask away. I took early retirement from teaching, but then I really missed the student/teacher interaction. I enjoy my students, so I don't mind going the extra mile for one. Also, a one on one relationship, as opposed to a group situation, makes difficult situations vanish so much more quickly."
