Award-Winning Tutors in Wayne, NJ
Albert "...While in Southern California, I worked hard to build up my experience by doing private tutoring, working at after school institutes and substitute teaching. I eventually received my teaching credential in Secondary Education with an emphasis in Mathematics and taught at a charter school for 3 fulfilling years. I enjoy working with students of all grade levels and ages, but really enjoy the connection with secondary education students, as I have the most experience in that field..."
Viktoria "...Currently, I organize and lead a creative writing group for adults with my husband at our home in Brooklyn. Over the course of my professional and academic trajectory, tutoring has supplemented and enriched my experience. Whether helping a fourth grader with intermediate-level German homework or guiding a high school senior in writing an analytical essay on Flannery O’Connor’s short stories, I relish the chance to delve into the given subject matter and inspire enthusiasm and success. My passion is rooted in – though not exclusive to – languages, literature, and writing..."
Samir "...I try to tutor my students in such a manner. Not only do I tutor my students in their immediate schoolwork, but also in what is coming ahead, by telling them of my past experiences. While it is important for students to have a solid foundation of what they are learning, they also need to understand what it will be used for and what is coming ahead..."

Rachel "...I love tutoring one-on-one because I can get to know students and gear the lessons toward their interests, which helps them learn more quickly, retain new skills better, and enjoy the tutoring sessions more. I particularly enjoy teaching science, writing, and test prep. With test prep I've found that supplemental work on fundamental skills helps students improve their scores much more than working through a test prep book alone..."
Shefali "...This means that students should both gain a conceptual understanding of the subject matter as well as learn how to actually do the mathematics involved. My philosophy is based on the idea above: to help you understand how math works, making you able to do any problem yourself! I believe that you can always do better in math, no matter what level you're in, and I help make that happen by asking the right questions and working through important problems with you. Through my teaching experiences, I've helped students from pre-school through college levels and beyond! That includes the following subjects: Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Arithmetic, Elementary Math, Middle School Math, College Algebra, and Statistics. I've helped students in many different settings, including an after-school enrichment program..."
Jeffrey "...At Baruch, I am working on a Bachelor of Economics degree, which I will have completed by May of 2016. I have received an Associates in Arts and Science as well as a Minor in English. I have a study strategy in which I learn subjects in class to the point where I can explain it to someone who has never heard of it before..."

Beiwen "... I was born and raised in China until age 14 and attended a secondary school in Singapore for two years before I went to California for high school. After moving to the east coast for college, I studied abroad in Denmark for a semester. Therefore, I have experience working with diverse population. Outside of work, I am a theater-goer who loves action movies..."
Sameer "...When studying for exams, it is important to have patience and understanding while learning the material. As a medical student, I know what it takes to overcome personal obstacles, especially having taken numerous standardized exams. When I am not hitting the books, I love to use my free time to play tennis; being close with friends and staying healthy at the gym allows me to have a positive outlook..."
Darcy "...I know many students dislike or are even fearful of Math, but it has always been my favorite subject as a student and as a teacher. I want to make Math as exciting and relevant to every student as it has always been for me. In my free time, I like to read, cook, and kayak. I grew up near the water in Maryland, so kayaking was easy to do..."
Chris "...After graduation, I entered into the pharmaceutical industry as a researcher and have stayed ever since. My pharmaceutical research career has included in depth study of Stem Cell Biochemistry, Synthetic Organic Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Biomaterials, Cardiovascular Disease, Virology (HIV, Dengue and Hepatitis C), Protein & Enzyme Chemistry, and now, Oncology. For the past 15 years, I have been mentoring and teaching junior research scientists and upcoming students in the sciences..."
