Gerardo definitely knows a lot about Microsoft Excel. He taught me how to use pivot tables, create histograms, produce graphs of data, and he also helped me learn a few keyboard short-cuts to do my work more efficiently. Gerardo is a patient and effective tutor and I highly recommend him!
Ana
Gerardo helped me out in Calculus because I was truly struggling. I had a tough professor and I had not taken a math course in a couple of years. He did a great job at tutoring me through webcam and he was really patient with me. I would definitely recommend!
Henry
Gerardo helped me prepare for my AP Calculus AB test. I had trouble understanding certain concepts such as related rates and using integration to find volumes. He explained problems very clearly by going step-by-step, and making sure I understood the process every step of the way. I highly recommend Gerardo if you are looking for a math tutor.

I have been teaching math for 6 years. Every student presented to me has different needs. As we go through some of the student's work, I notice what he/she needs to work on, and then we put emphasis on that. My goal is to help my students understand thoroughly the material in order build a strong foundation for further expansion on the subject.

About Hissael

I have been teaching and tutoring students for 6 years now. I teach math and guitar. The thing I love most about my teaching isn't the end result of a student's passing report card or a student's accomplishment of learning a difficult musical piece. It is the effort that takes place between the stu

This subject is hard for one to understand, it is very complicated and isn't a subject that is broken down well for student to actually be able to understand what they are expected to learn, I want to be able to break that information down for your students and help them come up with ways to help them remember the information for future tests and quizzes but also be able to understand it as well.

My daughter has expressed a love for music and singing from a very early age. As a parent, I thought she had a beautiful voice and that was confirmed by a good friend of mine who recommended me to Steven. I started Olivia with Steven when she was 9 years old. Through his instruction and guidance her voice has grown tremendously. She was awarded a major role as a 5th grader in her school play and then went on to be the lead as a 6th and 7th grader. She was the youngest student in the history of the school to earn a lead role.

Olivia also auditioned for the Paper Mill Playhouse Summer Conservatory and was accepted for their August Intensive program. I have no doubt that it was Steven's teaching that helped her with her audition that gained her acceptance.

Olivia is now 12 and as a young person, needs to learn how to interpret a song so that she can perform it well. Steven takes the time to teach the MEANING of the words and explains the story that is trying to be told. This was very important for Olivia to learn.

I highly recommend working with Steven. He is a fabulous teacher with a lot of knowledge and insight.
Dermod
Steve is a great teacher. Encouraging, enthusiastic and pushes you to your limits. I worked with him for several years. Have no hesitation recommending him for voice training and speech training.
Katie
Working with Steve has helped improve almost everything about my voice and performance. He challenges me in every way, including physical and emotional range, technique, language, health, etc. Steve is truly interested in encouraging students to be all-around excellent vocal musicians.

"Marta was my teacher for a few years, she helped me in many ways. First she helped me to get my GED when I decided that was the right path for me. Then a few years later I decided that I wanted to join the US Army, which I learned that I needed my high school diploma to join. So I went back to Marta, and she set me on the path I needed to be on tocomplete the rest of my high school work to get my diploma. Through all of that, she was also helping me study for the ASVAB, which is the entrance exam for the military; it covers a wide range to subjects from general science, arithmetic reasoning and mathematic knowledge to mechanical comprehension and word knowledge. Because of Marta’s hell, I successfully got my GED, High School diploma, and passed the ASVAB with a good score. I would absolutely recommend Marta, she makes learning enjoyable and sets people up for success!"

"Grant is one of the most patient, understanding and helpful instructors I have ever worked with. He's respectful of my work and is constantly encouraging me to push forward. His teaching style is pragmatic, while still remaining fluid enough to allow for flexibility.

Really, the only thing that matters is that Grant is educated, patient and (perhaps most of all) comfortable. I trust him and his analysis. I trust his advice. He's a great mentor and somebody you can count on."
