"I have been tutoring high school and college students for the past 5 years, covering basic through advanced math, chemistry, biology, and physics. I graduated college summa cum laude with a double major in bio-chemistry and pre-medicine. My success came from truly understanding the topic and applying it to real world scenarios. In life everything is related, and in learning making connections between multiple topics has given me a lasting enjoyment that allows me to communicate the topics more effectively to others."

"I am a former classroom teacher (K, 4, 7-12) and an honors graduate from Tufts University. First of all, congratulations for taking a big step in furthering your child's education – one-on-one tutoring is one of the most effective ways to improve academic achievement and confidence. Above all else, a good teacher shines light where there was otherwise darkness. Sometimes, a student simply cannot see how to connect theory and practice, sometimes, they don't realize how good they are at something, until someone else points it out. As a full-time classroom teacher, I am passionate about teaching, dedicated to nurturing students so they ...

"I am recent graduate from Cornell University, majoring in physics and minoring in math. I have been teaching AP level physics for approximately 5 years now and have tutored students for more than 7 years. I love teaching by conceptual examples, and getting students to really understand the concepts behind the class, rather than simply memorizing the equations themselves. Moreover, I also specialize in teaching students certain tricks/shortcuts that will enable them to save time on their tests at the end of the year.."

"I have had considerable experience as a tutor, beginning back when I was a senior in high school. As an inductee of the National Honors Society, I met twice a week with younger students to assist them in physics, chemistry, biology and advanced mathematics. Most recently, I received very extensive experience working as a teaching assistant for an advanced class in Biochemistry at Cornell University, where I was responsible for devising and grading exams, leading group discussions, lecturing and holding weekly office hours. This was a wonderful experience that helped me to internalize the skills necessary to be an effective tutor." ...

"I graduated from Vassar College in 2007. I worked for a few years in web journalism, print journalism, and film production, and then matriculated at New York University's MFA program, where I focused on fiction. I taught a writing course at NYU, and then moved on to work as a managing editor at an e-learning company that produced an online seminar for Harvard and Yale, which was the most requested class in its debut year. I'm now transitioning into teaching, based on my experience at NYU and The Floating University. It's a great job, as it allows me to make a difference in the lives of students while also granting me the freedom to pursue fiction ...

"I recently graduated magna cum laude with honors in English from Kenyon College. As a Kenyon Writing Center tutor, I worked closely with students across all disciplines; in one night, I might edit a lab report with a biology major, then help a philosophy major restructure a paper on Kierkegaard. I was also the managing editor of the student newspaper, where I trained first-year students in hands-on editing for style, content, and factual accuracy. Currently, I'm gearing up to apply for graduate programs in sociology. I emphasize that a student always has the tools to succeed and improve right in front of him or her--it's simply a matter of ...

I love helping students find the way that works best for them to approach problem solving and learning. I am very interested in education and have experience working with both children and young adults in New York public schools as well as outdoor summer schools." ...
