Finance, Econ, Math, Stats, Sciences, History, FRM, GMAT and SAT Tutor

I help develop self confidence and test-taking skills. My tutoring approach is based on working with a student to determine his or her strengths and then figuring out how to build upon that student's confidence with the subject matter. I think utilizing analogies can be a powerful tool to make the learning process more personal. My background and qualification cover a wide array of subjects; which I believe is helpful to finding such strengths in others. I can help students even when they ... [more]

Reading should be fun and an adventure!

I am passionate about helping children achieve success in reading. Reading is the fundamental skill needed for a successful life in the 21st century, the skill needed to open opportunities. I have more than 30 years' experience tutoring children and teaching and supervising others to tutor in three non-profit organizations in Manhattan. I've worked with youngsters from Kindergarten through high school, and some adults who were unable to read at all. The children in these programs came f... [more]

Premium NYC Test Prep/Math/Econ Tutor (UWS/UES/Skype)

A well-developed vocabulary is necessary to express yourself fully and to expand your horizons when it comes to reading comprehension and writing. There are many simple ways to learn vocabulary (flash cards, quizzes, etc.). However, the benefit of one-on-one tutoring in this area resides in the customizable, flexible lesson structure that deals with vocabulary in context and use in addition to the basic memorization exercises. I have access to extensive resources online and would be able to guide a student of any level through a vocabulary expansion program. [more]

Teaching each learner in the way they learn best.

Vocabulary and context are the keys to understanding anything you are reading. As an early reader learning a lifelong habit of reading and enjoying books, a student learning new material, a listener understanding a story, play or conversation, or a writer, having a varied and extensive vocabulary is very important. Improving your vocabulary and knowing how to find out the meaning of a word are basic skills that I always stress in teaching reading and writing. I am a Bank Street College of Education graduate with 10 years of elementary school head-teaching experience. I have also assisted, subb [more]
