" I loved being an Art Director, but I wanted to be of service to real people, not advertisers! Once I became a teacher I never looked back. 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."

"Some background on me: I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, and I come from a Russian family. In high school, I was an All-State debater, and a member of the National Honor Society. I graduated with honors from the University of Chicago with degrees in Mathematics and Economics, and I plan to go into corporate law when I graduate from law school.

"While I teach general math subjects (basic math and algebra) I specialize in preparing students for the standardized tests that they take in middle and high school. My goal has always been to have the students understand the “mysteries” of math. While they are learning the concepts, they are simultaneously feeling increased confidence and empowerment. During my tutoring career I have worked with a diverse group of students, each with their own set of challenges. Patience and the development of a rapport with the students have enabled them to overcome these hurdles." ...

" I particularly enjoy helping students learn to articulate clear arguments in their writing assignments, but am also at home working through tough social and political theory, most high school coursework, and SAT and LSAT preparation. As a writing tutor, I will help you make the most of your source material and develop your instincts and ideas, while helping you to write correctly, concisely, and persuasively. In every subject, I will make important content accessible by adapting to your learning style. I believe there are never more than a few silly mnemonics, clear diagrams, or concept reconfigurations between a student and a good ...

"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.

In particular, I specialize in tutoring all areas of the SAT and ACT, and any type of writing.

" I've always been a bit of a math nerd - my father is a physicist at MIT and my mother is a mathematician. I was the black sheep of the family, deciding to study Economics for my undergraduate degree (at McGill University in Montreal) instead of Math or Physics. I'm passionate about making a difference in the world, which is why I'm launching an organic clothing company here in New York! I've also always been interested in Education, tutoring high school students at a charter school foundation in Brooklyn after college, teaching ESL in Chile, and tutoring GMAT for the past four years. I also understand how challenging the college and business ...

" 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 writing. In my free time I am generally ...
