"I have tutored for CUNY York College's Academic Achievement Center, Chemistry Department, as well as The Biology Department. Throughout the years, I have learned to tailor my teaching method to each individual as everyone has different learning styles. After the first initial session, I identify specific weaknesses and then tailor my approach to each tutee's unique situation, level, and learning style. I am known to be very friendly, humorous, approachable, and love to teach and offer academic advice to students whether in middle school, high school, or college. My inherent quality is that I can connect with individuals at any ...

"I always encourage them to solve a problem on their own and give them as little help as possible. I try to show my students that with a bit of diligence and patience any problem could be solved. If my student is lacking the knowledge of the basics I always make sure to cover them quickly before teaching the more advanced subject. In high school, I myself struggled with physics and math, so I have a good idea of what could be confusing to students and I know a lot of memorization tricks and analogies to simplify the hard concepts. I also specialize in teaching College math and physics and preparing the student for the math and physics section of the ...

"In addition to tutoring I work in an active cancer research lab, and have hands-on experience with microbiology and molecular biology techniques. I like to teach with real-world examples, mnemonic devices, and visual aids; making connections and drawing one's own conclusions are lasting tools in learning that far surpass what memorization and rote work can achieve. I am also fluent in several languages, and enjoy teaching Italian, Spanish, and English as a second language, using immersion techniques. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Literary Translation from Brown University." ...

" I tutored younger students in the theater department throughout college, serving as a mentor for many underclassmen during my senior year. I believe a good teacher is a good listener; someone who can tailor their teaching style to the needs of any student, something I hope I will be able to do for you. I love playing guitar and singing more than anything, I've recently been reading a lot of Hemingway, and I absolutely love old Russian literature, particularly Tolstoy.."

"My favorite subject is and has always been English, so it is no surprise that I entered the publishing industry after college and am loving it. The aspect of tutoring I find the most rewarding is watching my students improve, and that is why my favorite subject to teach is SAT, as the progress is easily measurable. With other subjects, it is important to establish your own way of measuring improvement, which will keep motivation high. I have tutored elementary, middle, and high school students in the past, and my most successful students are always the ones who feel they are improving and are proud of their accomplishments." ...

" I am presently enrolled at Queens College to receive my teaching certification for Secondary and Special Education in Social Studies. Although history is my passion, I am well versed in English, Biology and served as a TA for Calculus my freshman year of college. I find that each student learns at a different capacity, so my teaching style is to first be aware of the material trying to be better understood. Then finding the correlation of the students interests and strengths in order to best relate the material we would be working with." ...
