Komba "...I served as a teaching assistant for basic Mathematics and Statistics courses when I was completing my Masters degree at Stony Brook University. I received my Bachelors degree from Columbia University, where I also served as a tutor. I have also tutored countless number of CUNY students studying to pass the CUNY Assessment test in Math. Each student is unique, and I understand that the techniques and style I use is tailored directly towards the needs of the student. I am a very good listener, and I try my best to make my students very comfortable at all times..."

Annie "... My favorite part of tutoring is helping a student figure out how to connect their real passions to the schoolwork that's troubling them. One student hated writing essays, but loved playing the guitar with his band. I helped him plan an essay about his experiencing performing for a crowd, and he discovered that essay-writing wasn't a punishment--it was another way to express himself. As a freelancer, I’ve worked as a writer for a test preparation company, giving me a solid background in test-taking strategies for the SAT and ACT..."
Conklin "... The most important skill we can develop as students and people is to realize the things that we do not know and find ways to ask questions about them. Whatever these things are, they are most certainly different for everyone, and challenging them and tackling them head on is a sure fire way to grow intellectually. Being an effective questioner and an astute observer of the unknown is a life-long task, and through hard work and focus, I believe anyone can grow into a stronger thinker and a more effective student. I also think science is very fun, and the best way to improve in a subject that may be difficult is to find the parts of it which are enjoyable to you..."
Eva "...This is what makes a student a lifelong learner who doesn't shy away from a challenge or the unknown. I like to inject fun and humor into learning and am the product of some really excellent educators who I like to think inform my teaching style. My tutoring experience began nearly four years ago when I began working with an organization that helps prepare under-served students for the SAT and the college admissions process. I enjoyed breaking students' preconceived notions about what they could and could not do, and I value the interpersonal relationships with my students that I was able to create and maintain to this day..."
