My name is Neil and I currently attend the CUNY School of Medicine. I have been a straight A student all my life so I am sure I will be able to aid your child in achieving his/ her own academic success. I graduated from Stuyvesant High School with an overall 95/100 grade average. I received the Advanced Placement Scholar Award for achieving the maximum score on five AP exams. Furthermore, I have received high scores on all the standardized college admission tests I have taken (SAT, ACT and SAT subject tests).
I also have a good amount of experience in tutoring. I have volunteered with the Reading Partners Program to help grade schoolers develop their reading skills. I am currently a part of the Switch it UP Break it Down program in which college students volunteer to teach grade schoolers in the Harlem area about healthy eating. Moreover, I have been privately tutoring middle schoolers in math, science and essay writing for about two years. Lastly, I have tutored college students in general chemistry for one school semester.
Since I am a student myself, I understand that the way some material is taught in the classroom may not be effective for all students so I adjust my teaching methods accordingly to child's learning style. I also understand that learning difficult material can be frustrating so I will do my best to create a calm, comfortable and encouraging environment for your child. I am easily reachable, happy to have discussions with you about your child's progress and willing to set times and locations for sessions that are convenient for you.
I look forward to helping your child succeed.
