RachelMy name is Rachel, and I've 10 years of experience as a tutor. I went to George Washington University for my undergraduate degree in psychology. I'm now attending New York University as a graduate student. My tutoring experience includes working in charter schools, and setting up my own volunteer tutoring program for middle school students in Harlem. I had the opportunity to be a research assistant at Columbia University, and I was able to help develop math software for education. I'm looking forward to tutoring students in algebra, elementary and middle school math topics, statistics, trigonometry, geometry, biology, psychology, English, essay writing and editing, literature, reading, comparative literature, and standardized test prep for the Regents exams, SAT, and others.

ElizabethI teach Spanish at the high school level. During my career, I've come to understand that every student has their own learning style. As a tutor, my goal is to help students work through any learning challenges they have with Spanish, and help them enjoy the language and the learning process. I attended CUNY Queens College for my bachelor's degree in Spanish. I also earned an education minor. I then went on to Stony Brook University to earn my masters degree in liberal studies. I have 11 years of experience as an educator, and during that time I've also help students prepare for the Spanish version of the Regents as well as helping students improve their comprehension, conversational skills, writing skills, and reading skills in Spanish language. I'm also from the US but went to an Argentinian high school. When I have free time, I like to paddle board, ride my bike, go to the movies, and read.

BennyI attended Cornell University to earn my degree in neurobiology and behavior. I will be attending medical school soon. As a tutor, my goal is to help students improve their learning in a subject, but also to help them love learning. As an undergraduate, I had the opportunity to work as a TA and tutor at Cornell, and I saw a valuable this was for students in terms of test scores and retention. I believe that the best way to help students improve is to identify where they need help the most. When students are properly guided, have goals, and know where they need to improve, we are more likely to find success. I can tutor students in algebra one and two, elementary and middle school math topics, pre-calculus, biology, chemistry, and Cantonese. I can also help students develop test taking skills and prepare for the SAT, MCAT, Regents, ACT, and other exams. I scored in the top 7% on the MCAT myself. I like to customize my plan based on the needs of each student that I work with, and I focus on helping students truly comprehend topics as opposed to helping them memorize formulas and facts. This helps students become self-sufficient as learners and helps them understand how to apply their knowledge so they can figure things out on their own. In my free time, I enjoy volleyball, rock climbing, ultimate Frisbee, and travel.
