Carefully selected, highly-credentialed tutors in White Plains, NY
" During my time at college, I volunteered as a tutor at an after-school program with elementary students, and I also tutored students individually in their classrooms for several of my Education classes. When I tutor, I try to get to know the student first before delving directly into the material, so that the student comes to trust me, and so that I get a better feel for the student's interests and individual learning style. I think it's important to remember that everyone learns differently, and I try to cater my tutoring techniques to the specific student's learning style. I am dedicated to helping each student reach his/her full ...

"The reason why I enjoy tutoring so much is that I get to act as a catalyst in creating a smarter society where students will go on to solve the world's biggest problems in health, education, economy, etc. My tutoring experience started in high school with SAT prep for a group of 3-5 students that needed help (the students attended the same high school as me at the time). Later, I moved on to tutoring students in a more structured environment in subjects involving biology, physics, and more advanced mathematics such as calculus. Although I do follow a very straightforward curriculum, my teaching style is more adaptive than it is rigid." ...

"I taught group ESL lessons, with a wide range of abilities, for kids aged 5 - 14. Engaging the campers in games, both outdoor and indoor, as well as projects and inter-active assignments was key for keeping tutoring sessions fun while also developing language skills. I have also tutored individuals in French and English, primarily aiding them after school with homework help, but also teaching new and more challenging concepts to keep them ahead of their class. As someone who was tutored in math all throughout high school, I can really relate to both sides of the tutoring process! I am a very patient and dedicated individual and I am ...
