Award-Winning Tutors in Wayne, NJ
Brande "Having 10 years of experience as a state certified science teacher has afforded me the opportunity to work with a wide variety of students, from special needs to the gifted and talented. This experience, more than anything, has helped me understand each student learns differently, and that the key to education is adapting to each student’s learning style. I was recently awarded my MD, and have a dual masters in education and chemistry. My extensive science background combined with my experience and training as an educator has given me a unique set of tools that help me maximize the benefit from tutoring sessions while making the time enjoyable for the student. As a life-long learner and science geek myself, my goal is to help the student learn the material they need quickly and thoroughly, and to empower each student to become a strong, independent learner.."
Jennifer "...Learning is one of my favorite things in life, and I try to pass that enthusiasm on to my students. An aspiring actress, I use my theatre skills in tutoring by connecting with a wide variety of people, improvising new ways to communicate the material, and engaging interest in the subject matter. Friendly, dependable, and approachable, I am always willing to go the extra mile with my students-students of all ages and abilities. While I tutor in a wide variety of subjects, I especially enjoy math and writing skills..."

Genesis "...I'm certified to teach from kindergarten to grade 12. The liberal arts curriculum I took at St. John's University has ensured that I not only can tutor students in technical fields but also humanities.

Grace "...As an America Reads employee at a Vermont elementary school, I provided support in a kindergarten classroom, engaging young students in hands-on activities and offering specialized attention as they completed assignments. While learning to teach at a junior preparatory school in New Hampshire, I worked with small classes of middle school students learning everything from ESL and creative writing to Algebra II (and even got to teach an elective in introductory graphic design, which is one of my major hobbies). I've also worked heavily with older students, and served as a college tutor in Calculus and Spanish. While I'm often called on for writing advice and have a strong humanities background, I love helping students with math and logic problems (including those on the SAT and GRE), which often require creative and innovative approaches..."
Adam "...During graduate school, having scored in the 98th percentile with a perfect writing score, I became certified to teach the GMAT by a private test preparation company, and taught that test to several small classes in Manhattan and Brooklyn. I am in the process of launching a small business. So in my spare time, I want to continue connecting to students by tutoring various subjects from math to English to test prep. As for test prep, I believe that most standardized tests don’t test your ability in their stated subjects as much as they do your ability to take those tests. Therefore, it is critically important to teach not just the basic skills, but the ability to succeed on the test as well..."
Gwen "... I'm always pleased and rewarded to guide a student to a higher level. The feeling of success is shared by both the tutor and the student because I work as a teacher, a mentor, a cheerleader, and a partner with my students. As an Art teacher or classroom teacher, I taught children from Kindergarten through 6th grade and then went on to work with middle school students in NYC tutoring subject matter and test preparation. I feel honored to be able to work with students one-on-one to develop a real rapport with each one..."
