"Teaching is not about telling children what the "right" answer is, it's about showing them how to find the answer. I love tutoring because I enjoy being the one who guides these young minds as they figure out the world of academics. I understand that students achieve more when they have a tutor who can motivate them. To do this, I believe in creating a personal connection with my students and showing them that I expect great things from them."

" As a math and physics graduate of a liberal arts college, and having taught in them, I am committed to a broad education in science/humanities, and try to inculcate a value for learning for its own sake. I believe that students who are well prepared in both quantitative and verbal expression, think actively, and get into the habit of connecting the things they have learned, will have the raw material to excel in life, wherever it takes them. I went on from college to do a PhD in Physics at the University of Rochester, and that took me into an academic career for 6 years, where I taught students at Swarthmore College and Princeton University. I am ...

"I graduated cum laude in May of 2012 from New York University with a BA in history and a minor in chemistry. I am currently taking a year off in-between my undergraduate coursework and medical school in order to conduct neuroscience research at the University of Arizona's Tucson campus. My diverse background in both the sciences and humanities means that I can tutor a variety of topics ranging from literature to organic chemistry, including the SAT and ACT.

" I BELIEVE THAT ANY STUDENT CAN MASTER THESE CONCEPTS, REGARDLESS OF HOW THEY CURRENTLY FEEL ABOUT THEIR MATHEMATICAL ABILITIES OR INTEREST LEVEL, SO LONG AS THEY HAVE TWO THINGS: 1. A desire to learn the material (a desire to survive the course or test will do) 2. A teacher who is creative enough to understand how the student thinks, and can adapt lessons into the student's "own language" accordingly IF YOU BRING THE FORMER, I’LL BRING THE LATTER. My previous tutoring experience has taught me one thing above all else: everybody learns differently, and effective teachers are the ones who can adapt." ...

" I have consistently played the role of a student mentor throughout high school and my undergraduate experience. My main objective when guiding students, whether their goal is to determine a fitting career path, ace an in-class exam, or prepare for a grueling standardized test, is to instill self-confidence in them. I try to not only help them develop lifelong critical-thinking skills, but also urge them to assertively believe in their personal abilities. If students dedicate themselves fully to the task at hand and have the genuine desire to succeed, then I think they can accomplish almost anything. During my junior and senior year at ...
