"I think that the one-on-one attention that tutoring provides students can definitely make the difference between passing and failing. When I tutor, my main goal is to break down convoluted topics to the major concept. In doing so, I help students see the main idea of what they are doing, remove any unnecessary information, and provide procedures that will work every time. In doing so, I have seen my students' grades improve drastically in the past."

"I've since tutored most high school, college, and graduate school entrance exams. I've worked with students of all ages on grade-level studies in math, science, the humanities and foreign languages. Students at top high schools like Stuyvesant and Brooklyn Tech are especially engaging to work with, due to the challenging nature of the material and the lively mind of the student. In addition to my own tutoring practice, I've also been director of a non-profit tutoring center."

" I enjoy using Mathematics in my daily life and I believe that a true mark of understanding a material is being able to apply it to your reality. One of the things that I enjoy about tutoring is seeing a smile on a client’s face once he or she has understood the material that was presented. I believe that this is one of the true joys of teaching. I have had several other experiences in being a tutor where I tutored lower school students while I was in High School and during my first undergraduate degree I tutored visually challenged classmates. Following the completion of my B.Sc in Economics I moved to Colombia where I became a Teaching Assistant in ...

" I always try to work from a position of kindness and have a great deal of life-experience that I bring to my tutoring regardless of the subject I am teaching. When I tutor, I feel that I am able to empathize with my student’s frustrations and this establishes a bond of trust. From there, I am able to motivate my students to do their homework with a new positive attitude. Of course discipline is also of the utmost importance, as I sometimes have to become a taskmaster and gently prod my students to stay focused and explore their work from a vantage point of curiosity rather than boredom, which I have found to be the best strategy to get them interested ...

"I have a passion for teaching and playing volleyball. I played volleyball in high school winning three state championships and continued to play at the University of Arizona. I have been tutoring for the past five years with much success in both math and physics. During this time I have found that the most effective method to convey difficult concepts is by actively developing the concepts and supporting them with clear simple examples. I understand the highly demanding schedule many high school students face and the ever-growing demand for improved success in the sciences." ...

"There has not been a day when I didn't feel proud of what I do. I'm always pleased and rewarded to guide a student to a higher level. The feeling of success is shared by both the tutor and the student because I work as a teacher, a mentor, a cheerleader and a partner with my students. As an Art teacher or Classroom teacher, I taught children from Kindergarten through 6th grade and then went on to work with Middle School Students in NYC tutoring subject matter and test preparation."

"I relish the opportunity to inspire my tutees, and enjoy getting to know each one for his/her strengths and potential. After my junior year at Harvard, I spent an intensive summer tutoring high school students who were taking classes at the Harvard Summer School. I loved watching these motivated students make both academic and personal strides. After graduating, I taught chemistry at Westminster, a boarding school in Connecticut. I lived on campus, and although I was not an official tutor, many students sought me out for individual help." ...
