PatriciaI'm a tutor who is based out of New York City, where I enjoy playing sports and going to the gym when I'm not working with students. As a tutor, I'm able to provide lessons in a wide variety of math topics such as trigonometry, multivariable calculus, and college algebra. I'm a recent graduate with a degree in math. I got interested in becoming a tutor when my older brother was taking a calculus class and struggling. Not knowing what to do, my brother turned to me for help. I wasn't sure how I would handle working with him, but I knew I wanted to help. I realized when I started working with him that I was able to help him out, and I got such a great feeling from helping him succeed in his class. Because of that interaction with my brother, I fell in love with the process of tutoring. Now, I've discovered that I absolutely love helping others learn subjects that they are struggling with. There's nothing quite like the feeling I get when a student I'm working with is finally able to grasp something that they've never understood before. I hope I can use the passion I have for math and teaching to help you reach all of your math-related goals.

DominiqueAs a lifelong learner, I believe that learning continues outside the classroom and education can happen anywhere. I have almost twenty years of experience working with a variety of students and subjects. Over the years, I have worked with students in many situations and of many ages, including at-risk youth, juvenile offenders, English language learners, elementary students, and summer school students. In all the situations, I was able to help the students to achieve success in their learning. In addition, I had the privilege of spending one year volunteering with AmeriCorps as a literacy tutor and a co-manager of their homework center that provided after school help. I focus on tutoring a variety of topics within the subjects of language arts, public speaking, study skills, and social studies. I earned a Political Science and Government Bachelor of Science, with minors in French and Philosophy from Santa Clara University. I also earned a Juris Doctorate and passed the bar exam in New York. I worked in litigation before relocating and focusing my work on the nonprofit sector. During my free time, I enjoy art, cooking, dancing, gardening, reading, and traveling. I also like to spend time with my pets and relaxing with yoga.

CarleneI have found that the best way to teach is to focus on each student's individual needs because every student learns in a different way. I make a personal commitment to each student to discover the best method for teaching them and helping them to learn the material. I believe that this individual approach creates the most effective learning session possible. I am a recent graduate of the University of Mississippi School of Law where I earned my JD. I completed my BA at Florida Southern College in Political Science. I have also spent several summers in England as part of a study abroad program. Although I tutor many subjects, I find law, history, political science, and government especially interesting. I also enjoy helping students prepare for the LSAT. I am adjusting to life and having free time in life after completing a very time-consuming degree. I'm learning how to relax with reading for personal enjoyment and giving back with volunteer work.
