Erin "... Concurrent with my research and studies, I am also an Adjunct at City College, where I teach two lab courses, a Biochemistry course in the fall and a Biophysical Chemistry course in the spring. Prior to pursuing my PhD, I graduated from Northeastern University where my group won honorable mention in the National Student Design Competition from the American Institute of Chemical Engineering (AIChE) in my senior year. I was also a member of Engineers Without Borders (EWB), and won a grant from AIChE, to fund the design and building of water systems in Honduras and Uganda. After earning a Bachelor's Degree in Chemical Engineering with minors in Biochemical Engineering and Psychology from Northeastern University, I worked full time in the biological pharmaceutical industry producing therapeutics for Clinical Trials. I have always had a passion for tutoring and mentoring students in subjects like Chemistry, Biochemistry, Organic Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Design. I feel receiving good grades is important however, I am a avid believer in truly comprehending the material so that one’s grades are a true reflection of understanding..."

Elan "...I provide a laid-back atmosphere most conducive to learning, where there is no pressure of making mistakes, but one in which the student strongly desires to improve and constantly learn more. I also have a knack for creating various analogies of the subject material, based off the student's affinities, so that the material can resonate with the student the most. I encourage asking questions, and will often rephrase the question in a way that the student can answer it himself/herself, giving him/her confidence with how much of the material he/she does know..."
Avner "...I try to show my students that with a bit of diligence and patience any problem could be solved. If my student is lacking the knowledge of the basics, I always make sure to cover them quickly before teaching the more advanced subject. In high school, I myself struggled with physics and math, so I have a good idea of what could be confusing to students, and I know a lot of memorization tricks and analogies to simplify the hard concepts. I also specialize in teaching College math and physics and preparing the student for the math and physics section of the following standardized exams: GRE, MCAT, OAT, DAT or any other exam of this sort which requires the knowledge of college level physics and math. I have almost six years of tutoring experience..."

Christian "...My teaching experience lies in math of any kind, ranging from Middle School Math to AB Calculus. My favorite subject to tutor would definitely be Statistics, since I have acted as a Teacher's Assistant for a statistics course and just feel very comfortable with that material. Additionally it's where my roots lie, and will always hold a little sentimental value to me..."
Darrin "I am a graduate from State University at Stony Brook with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. I have been a Science/Math teacher in NYC Public Schools for 9+ years. My hobbies include playing guitar and electric bass, drawing, martial arts and composing music. As for my teaching philosophy, one size does not fit all! – Teaching has general skills and procedures but what topics are chosen to teach and how they are taught must be tailored to the individual and the experience at hand. Most topics in education are relatively easy once you stop teaching in the jargon of the discipline and explain that many concepts now learned in 45 minutes of class time may have taken years or even a lifetime of work to establish . . .. . . . . . . . . ."

Esther "...I studied Romance Languages in the big city, with minors in Psychology and Business, and I also studied abroad in Paris before receiving my Bachelor's degree in 2011. I am currently studying French Literary Translation at NYU and looking forward to visiting those sweet pastry shops of Paris again. I have tutored for about five years now and I enjoy it very much. I took quite a few AP classes in high school, so I understand how fast-paced some classes are and how overwhelming that can be for the student..."
Anya "...I also studied American History, Calculus, and Astronomy extensively. My areas of tutoring expertise include SAT test prep in all three sections (math, writing, and critical reading), PSAT test prep, US History, high school Algebra, Public Speaking, and Essay Writing. I particularly enjoy helping students hone their writing skills, guiding them to uncover a more personalized style within a cohesive and effective structure..."
Andrew "... I am working towards a Master's degree in Teaching. At George Washington University, I was employed by the Statistics Department as a tutor working during their office hours. I tutored Statistics, but I am also comfortable tutoring Algebra I, Algebra II, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus I, Calculus II, and Calculus III..."
Fouad "...These include Algebra, Calculus, Geometry, Trigonometry, Biology, General Biology, Biostatistics, Genetics, Anatomy, Physiology, Microbiology, Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physics, Electricity and Magnetism, and Mechanics. I enjoy tutoring all scientific subjects especially Chemistry and Physics because I am familiar with the common areas of difficulty that students have in these subjects. When tutoring students, I make sure that they have a solid foundation in the subject being studied and work with them on areas of trouble. I simplify ideas as much as possible and correlate them to real life scenarios whenever possible to help students remember them..."
