Award-Winning Tutors in New York, NY
Spencer "...Throughout my undergraduate career, I was fortunate enough to participate in several research-oriented internships in New York and Maryland. These allowed me to gain invaluable experience and apply my knowledge to real-life applications. In addition, I have experience tutoring fellow classmates in courses such as physics, probability/statistics, and linear algebra; however, my favorite subject to teach is calculus and I've found it to be the most challenging to learn. My philosophy of teaching heavily focuses on practice problems and examples while maintaining a personable, stress-free environment..."
Yoshi "I'm a graduate of Baruch College. I received my Bachelor of Business Administration in Operations Management, with a minor in Spanish. Since graduating, I've tutored people of all ages, with varying levels of proficiency (i.e. beginners, etc.) In addition to grammar and literature, I've helped my students improve their conversational Japanese in everyday situations. My lessons also incorporate elements of Japanese culture, especially pop culture and anime/manga, and history. In my spare time, I enjoy playing piano, painting, traveling and learning different cultures and languages.."
Jason "... When it comes to tutoring, I do not believe that there is one set teaching method for every student. The only thing I make sure to do with all of my students is to listen, to be patient, and to be encouraging. I try to understand what they currently know about a subject, where they are having difficulty, what their learning style is, and then I adjust my teaching style accordingly so that they can understand the material with confidence. In addition to tutoring, I have also given presentations and training to other colleagues in my career. Furthermore, at the church I attend, I have taught Sunday school to children in elementary school and Bible Study to high school students and college students. In my spare time, I enjoy working out, reading, listening to music, watching movies, and traveling..."

When studying for exams, it is important to have patience and understanding while learning the material. As a medical student, I know what it takes to overcome personal obstacles, especially having taken numerous standardized exams..."
Morgan "... I am a friendly recent college graduate who likes to make learning fun. When tutoring, I look for ways to relate the material to one of your child's interests, to better ensure he/she retains the material. Part of my method includes instructing students on how to properly study. For example, I advise them on how to make comprehensive study reviews, a schedule, and note cards..."
