" 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.."

" As an elementary teacher, I understand how important it is for students to get that individual attention that they may not always get in the classroom (despite their teacher's best intentions). In classrooms these days, it is easy for a child to slip back and not reach their fullest potential--not with me! I am fully dedicated to make sure that each of my students reaches their highest potential, no matter where they stand academically. Through my teaching experience, I have had the chance to teach a diverse group of students including those challenged by autism, learning disabilities, noncompliant behavior, as well as children who ...

" I am a person who enjoys different and challenging experiences, and I believe my track record as a tutor is an example of that. I have had the opportunity of engaging in the most unique mixture of peculiar, fun, and stimulating positions.

" But first and foremost, it is important that each student identifies the reason that he or she is studying for. Once that goal is vividly envisioned by the student, he or she will find enjoyment and satisfaction in understanding and applying new concepts as the student progresses towards his or her goal one step at a time. After we gain some momentum, it is simply a matter of time before the student masters each mathematical concept. I teach and study math with great passion, and I like to pass on my enthusiasm to my students with patience, challenges, and without overwhelming them or giving them the answers. ." ...
