Carefully selected, highly-credentialed tutors in New York City, NY
"I visited Kenya and Bulgaria this past winter -- my 26th and 27th countries! I joined Varsity Tutors mainly to help students with entrance exams (SAT, SSAT, ISEE, PSAT). I personally improved my score by 250 points in just two sections with a little personal study. I believe strongly that anyone who learns the structure, nuances, focuses, and limits of the SAT can not only improve their score but earn perfect scores like I did on the creative reading and writing multiple-choice sections. Students spend hours on regular coursework that prepares them for the SAT but very little time studying the actual test, which is surprisingly ...

" I was drawn to this tutoring service to utilize my knowledge in Chemistry and Math to teach others. With my experience, drive, intelligence and level of commitment, I feel that I would be a great choice of a tutor. My experience and success as a private tutor make me a credible candidate.

During this time, I worked to help all of my students pass the regents and raise their grades."

"I can help students with essays, personal statements, applications, grammar, verbal and writing standardized tests, and Italian grammar and conversation. As a tutor, I’ve learned how to adapt to different learning styles and individuals. I personalize my tutoring sessions by listening to what students want help with, gauging their needs based on their writing or language ability, and understanding their teachers’ (or exams’) expectations. When I tutor, I enjoy being able to teach students as I assist them with their writing and language." ...

" As a result, I did extremely well on My SHSAT and attended the Bronx H.S of Science. With the help of my parents and tutors I was able to do very well on my SAT's and gain acceptance to some of the toughest Undergraduate institutions NYC had to offer (NYU, Macaulay Honors College,etc). Most recently I graduated a top-ranked MBA program, and am ready to give back some of the knowledge I have gained throughout the years to those that need it. Currently I am an Adjunct at CUNY Queens College,teaching Mathematics to graduate and undergraduate students. I also tutor High School students (all Math Regents exams, and Math SAT) and Junior High School ...

"As a freshman, I began workshop leading in Introductory Chemistry courses and, soon thereafter, progressed to Organic, Quantitative and Thermodynamic Chemistry. I enjoyed my interaction with the students so much that, after graduating, I decided to adjunct lecture at a community college. There, I welcomed the exciting challenge of engaging adult learners in an introductory biology course with labs. Recently, I have garnered some extensive private experience tutoring middle to high-school age students in Algebra, Geometry, ELA, Chemistry and Biology, as an independent contractor for a couple of companies. I look forward to ...

" I also work with students in history and general homework help. I am a published writer, with articles in national and local publications and Yahoo! Finance. I wrote about legal and financial issues and discovered that I really enjoy the law - so I moved to Williamsburg, Virginia for three years and studied at the College of William & Mary, the country's oldest law school. During the week, I am a practicing attorney who has taken and passed three bar exams - each on the first attempt. I believe that any student can achieve and that no one style fits everyone. I maintain flexibility and adjust my methodologies for each student that I work with." ...

"I play the guitar (I love the Blues) and am a baseball enthusiast. I am fluently bilingual (English and Spanish) and as such can teach what I know in both languages. I've recently received a degree in Physics (B.S) from Fordham U. in The Bronx. At Fordham, the Physics Department requires that all upperclassmen be available for tutoring in the classes they've succeeded in, meaning that I've tutored in several areas of Physics and Math for two consecutive years."

"First, I enjoy seeing the reaction on their faces when they realize they're able to accomplish something they thought was impossible. Watching students succeed is a reward that never gets tiring. Second, I honestly enjoy working on the material personally. When I'm not teaching students how to solve math equations, I'll actually work on some in my free time. I have a collection of math puzzles, logic games and crossword puzzles that I work on constantly."

"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. I was a two sport varsity athlete in college and also have spent three summers coaching tennis. I love playing my guitar and would love to start my own band one day.."
