Award-Winning Tutors in New York, NY
Lauren "...However, as I've worked as a tutor, I've come to realize just how *many* of those tests I took for practice before I took the real thing. By the time I sat down to the real SAT, I'd been steeped in test-prep culture for years. Even if I didn't intentionally set out to attack the test with "tricks," those tricks were embedded in my subconscious..."
Bailey "... While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about the Spanish language, history, and writing. I bring a broad range of experiences to the table and try to impart the importance of education to each student that I work with. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, traveling, and playing tennis..."
Aakash "...After graduation, I took the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) and began applying to medical school. I moved to New York City in early August where I am currently working as a Research Assistant at Columbia University Medical Center while I continue the year-long medical school application process. I look forward to matriculating into medical school in Fall 2016. As an undergraduate at Emory University, I was motivated to share my passion for math and biology with others in the community, so I became a Teaching Assistant for a basic health education course and an introductory biology lab on campus; I also served as a tutor for Emory Reads, a campus organization that tutors underserved elementary and middle school students in math and reading..."
Ethan "...I present different methods of thinking about or attacking a problem than what the student hears from his/her teacher or professor. Sometimes a different voice is all it takes. Ultimately, I try to promote deep comprehension of the material, as well as provide tips and tricks to increase test-taking speed..."
Adaobi "... I graduated medical school with awards for outstanding performance in Orthopedic Surgery. As an undergraduate, I tutored Algebra, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus. I also worked as a teaching assistant in the College of Math and Science, teaching and grading Algebra, Pre-calculus, Geometry, Calculus, Biochemistry, General Biology, and Molecular Biology. I tutored students for the MCAT (Medical College Admission Test)..."
Altaf "My name is Altaf Siddiqui, I am currently working at Crescent High School and Huntington Learning Center, with seven six years of teaching/tutoring experience. I believe what makes a great educator is one's passion for their subject area and a motivation to pass on your knowledge to another individual, of course result matters. I am certified by the State of New York to teach 6-12 Social Sciences and humanities, I also have extensive experience teaching ELL/ESL students, and currently hold a CELTA license from Teaching House New York: Cambridge University.."
Yoshi "I am a graduate of The CUNY Baruch College. I received my Bachelor of Business Administration in Operations Management, and Minor in Spanish. Since graduation, I have tutored students and adults, as well as sharing Japanese Culture from Historical to Pop Culture like Amine/Manga. I help students improve their Japanese that is used in various places and situations. In my spare time, I enjoy playing Piano, painting, traveling and learning different cultures and languages.."
Frank "...Currently, I maintain interest in (and can tutor) a broad field of subjects, but the ones that I am most passionate about, that I want to spend the rest of my life pursuing, are book-related: English, Literature, and Writing. I love everything that has to do with the working of words and articulation of the surrounding world. As such, when I work with my students, I like to engage with them, both to identify (and alleviate) blocks in understanding, and also to bring out and emphasize a deeper sense of individual perspective that helps them approach their studies in ways that are both fresh and familiar..."
Jim "... I know the above subjects can be dry (and may even put some people to sleep!) at times, but I have an intense passion for them, and hope that I can share that passion by teaching you some of their exciting real-world applications (stock markets, global currencies, etc) in addition to your core curriculum. I try to keep things light and make learning as fun as I can! I have experience as a teaching assistant in graduate school/undergrad, as well as years of private tutoring experience across a wide range of topics. My academic background (Master/Bachelor degrees in Economics), professional exam experience (Passed CFA Levels I and II Exams, as well as Series 7, 63 86, and 87 exams), and on-the-job training (Equity Research) have provided my past tutoring clients with a unique perspective of integrating theoretical knowledge into real-world application. With a strong background in finance and economics, I have tutored many students interested in careers in financial services, and believe I can help younger students simply looking to master the fundamentals of intermediate mathematics. I ask for feedback at the end of every tutoring session, encourage questions on my teaching methods and material coverage, and include a free 10 minute discussion with each lesson for practical applications (e.g., stock market implications, tax policies, etc.) if so desired and applicable..."
Jorge "... I can also tutor multiple sciences, including Elementary to Advanced Physics and all levels of Chemistry. I have a love of History, Literature, and Reading, all of which I am able to tutor. As a native Spanish speaker, I can help those who wish to improve their Spanish-speaking skills or beginners wishing to learn the language. I can tutor various standardized tests, including the SAT, ACT, and most SAT Subject Tests..."
