Award-Winning Tutors in Parsippany, NJ
Lisa "... Teaching is not one-size-fits-all. My goal is to help each student achieve to the best of his or her ability by adapting my teaching style to the needs of each individual student. I believe that students can master (and enjoy!) any subject if they can find the right teacher. I'm available for tutoring in a wide range of subjects, including test preparation..."
Alyssa "... This past summer, I taught 6th and 7th grade Math at a summer school in the Bronx. The summer before that, I taught literacy and writing to children in East Harlem. I am now currently the 7th Grade Math teacher at a middle school in the Bronx. Math is one of my passions, although I have a strong liberal arts background as well..."

Daniel "...I have not officially tutored high school students, but I have passively helped my friends or peers when they had trouble. Tutoring and teaching to me is very rewarding and I am always trying my best to deliver 110%. I will not give up until the student completely understands all the concepts and is able to solve problems associated with the concepts without guidance. In my spare time, I enjoy doing the crossword, writing poetry, cooking, running, and going to concerts..."
Priyanka "...They have struggled previously in a building block of a topic they are currently trying to master. I make sure my students understand and practice every concept before being bombarded with new information. My goal for my students is to show consistent progress with their scores. I believe learning should be fun. Math tends to give students anxiety on its own..."
Margarita "...In high school, I was an All-State debater, and a member of the National Honor Society. I graduated with honors from the University of Chicago with degrees in Mathematics and Economics, and I plan to go into corporate law when I graduate from law school. My interests include movies, fashion, classic rock, reading and studying Japanese. I love learning and I look forward to working with your student! I started tutoring at Kumon Learning Center while I was still in high school, and since then I have taught ACT preparation classes, served as a teaching assistant for freshman Calculus courses at the University of Chicago, and coached high school debate as a first year law student. I enjoy working with students, and I have a younger sister who is still in high school (and we're very close!), so I am eager to work with students of her age..."
Taylor "I am a graduate of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts with a BFA in Drama and a Minor in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Studies. I enjoy tutoring history, reading, writing and language arts, but I am most passionate about helping students of all ages realize their academic goals in any subject! Because of my experience in the professional writing field, I am an excellent writing, language arts, and reading resource for students. I have high achievements in academic history, and have developed superb study methods to aid memorization and concept understanding. I have a very hands-on, personal teaching style..."
Alicia "...I believe one of my greatest strengths is not only my own ability to write fluidly, but also to help others do the same while still respecting their individual voices. I love to work with students on college essays, other applications, and general writing skills - this past year, one of my students with whom I worked on a college essay was accepted to every school to which he applied, and I work to achieve that goal with all of my students! I'm also experienced in Verbal and Writing test prep, particularly for the SAT, and find great satisfaction in watching my students' scores steadily improve. In short, if your tutoring needs have to do with words, I’ve got them covered! I also devoted a good portion of time in my undergraduate career to foreign language study and to developing an appreciation of global culture. I have studied Spanish, French, Russian, and German and have traveled on my own to over twenty nations..."
Spencer "I am a recent graduate of Stony Brook University (SUNY) from where I received my Bachelor of Sciences in Applied Mathematics & Statistics with a concentration in Physical Sciences. Throughout my undergraduate career, I was fortunate enough to participate in several research-oriented internships in New York and Maryland. These allowed me to gain invaluable experience and apply my knowledge to real-life applications. In addition, I have experience tutoring fellow classmates in courses such as physics, probability/statistics, and linear algebra; however, my favorite subject to teach is calculus and I've found it to be the most challenging to learn..."
Linda "... All my private students working one on one, made amazing advancements. I was a Literacy Coach helping teachers with Reading and Writing and was part of Teacher's College Reading and Writing Project. I was a mentor to new teachers helping them plan lessons, modeling lessons, time management and organization. I am familiar with Common Core Curriculum and NYS curriculum, as well as the ELA and Math tests. Some of my strengths are study skills, writing, Literature, organization and test prep..."
Ethan "...Because of students' differing needs and interests, I always make a point of finding the approach that works with each person. I focus on first understanding why a student is having difficulty, rather than just drilling them. Sometimes this is a matter of the student's learning style, in which case I adapt my teaching style to that and help them develop studying habits suited to their way of learning. Sometimes it's a matter of having trouble with a particular concept, in which case I'll work with the student to rethink and re-articulate the problem in terms that will make more sense to them..."
