"My philosophy is that everyone is educable and deserves an appropriate education in the least restrictive environment. My experience working and teaching students in other countries and cities has only serve to further my belief that there is no one 'right' model, yet more individualized instruction most often yields the greatest success. 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." ...

" I believe, and I help students understand, that these tests are a means to an end. It is wonderful to know that I've played a role in helping students achieve their goals. Having spent many years mentoring teenagers, through extensive volunteer work, and raising three of my own, I understand the stresses and difficulties of this time in a student's and parent's life. Former tutoring clients tell me that I have been a calming influence during this difficult time.."

" I have been tutoring for the last 6 years professionally. In general, I try to relate new material that I am tutoring back to concepts that a student has already grasped so that unfamiliar material takes on a familiar character. Furthermore, I try to have a student do some writing, some reading, and some discussion in each lesson, and in this way engage the main three modes of learning. That being said, I try to modify my teaching style to best benefit the type of student I am tutoring."

"I attended private schools my whole life because I was awarded academic scholarships based off of academic performances. In high school, my average for the math regents was a 98.67. After that I received an academic scholarship to attend the University of Notre Dame where I really developed a passion for teaching and enlightening students in my free time, despite being a finance major. I decided that instead of teaching/tutoring, I should work for corporate America, and I worked at Goldman Sachs for 3 years."

"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. He is passionate about his students, and definitely has a competitive streak - he will make it his personal goal to make sure each student accomplishes his or her goals.

" My focus was on international relations and concentrated on the People's Republic of China. My years at Princeton developed my passion for human rights, and also solidified my desire to help others. During my senior year, I researched and compared the educational systems and conditions faced by Chinese migrant children and those faced by undocumented children in America. As a long time athlete, I understand the value of coaching and teamwork."
