" I moved out to New York originally to take advantage of an exciting opportunity to work towards the development of a safe and effective vaccine for the HIV virus. I’ve stayed because of the vibe of excitement and competition in the city. It truly does push you to be your best. In my free time, I enjoy exploring the ever-changing NYC landscape, stumbling about the internet learning whatever it has to teach me, studying politics both as an art and a science, as well as my guilty pleasure of watching the NFL and the occasional Newcastle game." ...

"I attended Stuyvesant High School, and in 2007 I left the city to attend Cornell University, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science with honors in Human Development. My areas of focus while I studied included Social and Personality Development in Early Childhood, Education, and Feminist Studies. As a student, I conducted research in schools, fulfilled a teaching assistantship, and worked as a substitute at a local daycare center. I also learned how to be a successful caretaker and educator in my coursework."

"In all cases, I loved revisiting my favorite academic subjects and finding ways to help adolescents develop a greater understanding of them, but my favorite part was getting to know the students themselves. I started tutoring again here in New York--and began applying to grad school in education--because I had come to miss these joys. Again, my main subject area is math, but I have a strong background in a wide array of other fields and, having worked two years writing workbooks for the test, am particularly well qualified for tutoring for the SAT. My teaching style is highly customized to the student(s) I'm working with: my main goal is ...

"Last year I worked as a substitute teacher for grades K-12 in six school districts while I was studying to get my masters. This year I am finishing up my masters and will graduate in the Fall with a Masters of Science in Childhood Education with a Bilingual Extension. I am proud to say that I just got a full time teaching job as an elementary ESL teacher! I was very grateful that the first teaching resume that I ever sent out (and many countless interviews after for this one job) landed me a job that quickly! I am fluent in Spanish and conversational in American Sign Language. One of my favorite tutoring moments happened about three years ago." ...

" I believe in positive reinforcement and have great patience. A thousand questions directed to me means that you're interested and they never deter me or frustrate me, so ask away.

" I have tutored students enrolled in a variety of biology and chemistry classes for most of my time at Adelphi University and I enjoyed every minute of it. I've also helped students with essay writing and proofreading because of the rigorous reading and writing that was part of my curriculum in the Honors Program. It's hard to say which I enjoy more-- literature or science. I enjoy exploring methods of learning that work best with the student and really value their feedback on my tutoring style. I like to be approachable during tutoring sessions so that the student can feel comfortable enough to bring up any questions he/she might have or ...
