MarshaMy background is in history and creative writing. I earned my bachelor's degree in History from Brown University, and my MFA degree in Creative Writing from the City College of New York. The first time I worked with students in a teaching capacity was in India through a volunteer organization. They were Tibetan teenage refugees, and even a monk, who wanted to learn English, but what I was teaching was a creative writing seminar. I worked closely with them and helped them craft meaningful essays. I was hooked. I love tutoring. I'm available to tutor in a wide variety of subjects from adult literacy to test prep for standardized exams like the SSAT, SAT, and others.

AngeliqueMy name is Angelique, and I'm currently attending the City College of New York to earn my undergraduate biology degree. As a tutor, my specialties are science and math subjects. I believe students deserve the right tools to understand subjects and achieve their goals, and it's my job as a tutor to provide that for every student I work with.

AlfredI believe that every student is capable of succeeding academically, but that the current system is structured in a manner that allows some to achieve while others are doomed to fail. As a tutor, I strive to correct this injustice with a clear and decisive approach that establishes an easy step-by-step plan to achieve a student's goals. Take it from me that there is no better feeling than giving your child more educational opportunities than you had. At times, this may require hard work on the part of the student or even tough love. However, these "unfriendly" attributes do not preclude other attributes successful tutors need, including a strong understanding of the material they are teaching and an earnest desire to help students succeed. I am available for a variety of subjects, including Spanish, Math, and Political Science. I can also help students prepare for standardized exams such as the SAT and GRE.
