"I am currently pursuing a masters degree in elementary inclusive education at Teachers College, Columbia University. I have ambitions to someday affect educational policy and administration - maybe I'll be a principal or school superintendent. In college, I coordinated a reading program with local elementary school students that took place once a week. I also tutored at my college's writing center, working with fellow college students to improve and enhance writing assignments in all disciplines and to strengthen basic grammar and organizational skills." ...

"A graduate of Brown University with a double major in Philosophy and Theatre, this is his second year of teaching and tutoring. Originally from Washington, DC, he now happily lives in Park Slope, directing theatre, reading whatever he can find, and jogging around the city. He focuses on reading, writing, History and English, and test prep (all areas). It's the stuff that can seem intimidating, but - with some new tools and training- isn't any problem at all.

"Education should not be a mundane experience; it should allow people to use their skills and creativity to become innovative. It is for this reason that I teach students to develop an understanding of concepts--rather than dictate information--and identify ways to apply this knowledge for practical purposes. My style incorporates critical thinking exercises and real-world examples to explain core concepts. I have taught individuals from grade school through college in mathematics, physics and writing skills for nearly ten years, and each experience has allowed me to refine my methods to better help students become more ...

"I am an experienced science and English tutor and have been tutoring students in some capacity since my junior year of high school. When I work with a student for the first time, I like to begin with the very basics of the subject to ensure the individual has a proper grasp of the fundamentals. Students can often be hesitant to admit they are unsure of concepts that were taught in previous years because they feel they are expected to know them. However, without a proper understanding of the simple facets of a subject, the more complicated features can never be truly internalized." ...

"As an educator, I have taught English and Playwriting to students entering the 10th Grade in Downtown Los Angeles, and I currently mentor student playwrights from the Harvard-Westlake School. I work in New York as a playwright, actor, and director, but I spent my time at Brown University studying English, Philosophy, History, Political Science, Critical Theory, and Comparative Literature. Writing is what I do, and I am especially well-trained when it comes to writing the academic essay. I treat tutoring the same way I treat directing actors: there is no one-size-fits-all approach, so I've learned to identify the specific ...
