"...While I love teaching all subjects, science is easily my favorite because it explains how everything works and is so applicable to the world around us. Not everyone loves science, but I have found that once a student gains the skills and confidence they need, science becomes a fascinating subject that stimulates their curiosity and excitement. Most of the students I tutor come to me for help with science or math; however, I have also helped students with standardized test prep and general study and time management skills..."

"I am a graduate from State University at Stony Brook with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. I have been a Science/Math teacher in NYC Public Schools for 9+ years. My hobbies include playing guitar and electric bass, drawing, martial arts and composing music. As for my teaching philosophy, one size does not fit all! – Teaching has general skills and procedures but what topics are chosen to teach and how they are taught must be tailored to the individual and the experience at hand. Most topics in education are relatively easy once you stop teaching in the jargon of the discipline and explain that many concepts now learned in 45 minutes of class time may have taken years or even a lifetime of work to establish . . .. . . . . . . . . ."

"...I have been teaching for seven years grades K-6 and I have loved each bunch! My favorite subjects to teach are Reading, Writing, and Math. I graduated from Penn State (We Are!) with a degree in Elementary Education in 2007 and earned my Master's degree in K-5 Mathematics in 2010. I am married and have one beautiful daughter. Although I love being a teacher, my favorite thing to do is tutor! I really enjoy working with kids one-on-one to help them overcome a hurdle or brush up on their skills, and I love seeing the excitement and pride in their eyes when they finally "get" it! It is one of the true joys of my job..."
