Daniel "...I graduated from Boston College in 2009 and have worked at the neuroscience and psychiatry labs at Yale and Cornell.

Liz "... Because of my unique undergraduate college experience -- my senior year of high school was at the University of Minnesota--Twin Cities before I spent three years at a liberal arts school in upstate New York before moving to New York City to study Engineering at Columbia-- I believe I could be a great resource to high school students applying to colleges/universities. I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge and experience in a variety of subjects, especially math/science but also college counseling. I am disciplined and hard working, but I'm also fun, friendly, and down to earth..."

Tracy "... My tutoring philosophy has always been, “If you’re having fun, learning is easy”. I love teaching French because I believe that multilingual children grow into globally aware and culturally sensitive adults. French is spoken in 29 different countries, and bilingual students are better able to appreciate cultural nuances and possess a better understanding of different cultures..."
Zach "...For over a year, I have tutored college and high school students in these subjects. I learned that every student learns differently, so I try to utilize creativity in my teaching approaches. My goal is to steer each student to that “ah-ha” moment so that they truly understand the material..."

I had been working in Sales for a good part of my adult life, harboring a dream to go back to school and to write about my passion..."
Allison "...For the past couple of years I have tutored a few students on and off in Trigonometry, SAT Math, and GRE Math. I enjoy tutoring Math because I love Math in general, and I enjoy passing that love onto others. I believe that one-on-one tutoring is beneficial for all students, especially in the NYC school system, where education is not focused enough on the individuals..."

Aaronson "... While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about Math, Psychology, English, and test preparation. In my work, I highlight the strengths of my students and operate from the perspective that there are many equally effective ways of learning. As a result, I strive to help students become more aware of their unique learning style to become more effective in their academics..."
Amelia "... In high school I tutored students for the SHSAT as well as provided homework help after school near Stuyvesant HS. In college in Chicago, I also volunteer-tutored local kids as well as worked as an educational consultant and private tutor at an elite Chicago-area company. Thus, I have experience working with kids from all backgrounds, walks of life, and interests, so I like to think I’m ready for anything! Outside of academia, I enjoy exploring the New York City arts scene, journalism, hiking, and rollerblading..."
Alexander "...I have taught in France, Africa, and in Boston, and I am especially passionate about language tutoring (French, Latin), although I also love teaching math, writing, and helping students through the college admissions process (including SAT prep). I have a critical-thinking-focused approach to teaching; that is, I focus on helping my students understand the concepts and frameworks underlying their most difficult assignments, and I try to improve their study habits and problem solving strategies. Outside of the realm of teaching, I also love sports and music..."
