About Gerardo

My name is Gerardo M. I studied Mechanical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology. I am a STEM-focused tutor that specializes in teaching all levels of math (AP included), science, academic test prep, and college level classes. One of my greatest strengths as a tutor is my ability to

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.

Physics is my favorite subject to teach! I scored a 5 on AP Physics exam, 800 on the SAT II Physics subject test, and I completed two semesters of Physics during pre-med.

About Simeon

The most important attributes of any teacher are empathy and patience. I currently attend Harvard University and work as a professional writer and tutor. I've lived all over the United States, although I grew up in Scotland of all places. My scores on the SAT and ACT were perfect (1600 and 36 re

Words cannot express how awesome Simeon is....but here is an attempt. As parents, my wife and I cannot say enough great things about Simeon. Our child was preparing for his second attempt at the SAT's. Our child has a 4.0 GPA but did not do as well as he would have liked on the SAT's his first time. Our son was hesitant at first to work with a tutor since he thought he could prepare on his own and improve his score but as parents, we decided he needed outside help. That's when we found Simeon. Our son not only increased his SAT scores by almost 100 points in a very short window, but he extremely enjoyed his time with Simeon. Now that he and Simeon no longer meet on a weekly basis our son misses his time with Simeon. Simeon is extremely intelligent and has a way of explaining the concepts in a manner that anyone can understand. Simeon truly cares about the students he works with. We have another child entering high school next year and you better believe if he needs any tutoring Simeon will be getting a call.

Very intellectual and patient ... Cares and wanted to help .
Sadie
Simeon has been an absolutely invaluable resource for my SAT prep. His encouragement is appropriately supplemented by challenging material and (appropriately) challenging expectations. He manages to make studying for the SAT fun rather than a laborious task and I could not recommend him more.

My love of tutoring, and the desire to pay forward the help and inspiration I was given from teachers and tutors, has developed through over ten years of tutoring elementary through graduate school level math and physics, most recently at Harvard. I believe a tutor’s main role is to empower. As such, I try to guide a student to take a problem apart into ever smaller pieces until the tutee is able to solve each of those small pieces independently. Each small success helps the student believe they are able to tackle the subject on their own. The student dictates the pace of learning, but I try to help them keep track of the bigger picture and avoid frustration when tackling each step of a problem. The end goal is for the student to learn not just to understand the necessary concepts and calculations, but to learn how to dissect and approach any problem with confidence.

Analogies and real-world examples are critical to explaining concepts to any student, and I try to choose ...

About Nicholas

My interest in math and physics started with a childlike wonder at the infiniteness of space, brought home by watching the yearly Perseids meteor shower from the deck of my family’s cottage on a rural island in Canada. In college, I tried to pursue my curiosity to the utmost, taking courses in abst

My interactions with Nicky have mainly included his support on multivariable calculus topics. In my experience, there are few teachers who can help synthesize the material from as many different angles as Nicky can. Specifically, as an international student myself, I would typically understand topics somewhat differently as compared to how it was explained in my courses; to a certain extent I was probably a prisoner of my math foundations acquired in a different educational system that had taught me how to solve problems sets but not necessarily to see or appreciate all the possible real world applications that these concepts would have. It has always been appreciated that Nicky would go through the crux of the problem and show me the concept applicability to the real world, which was critical for me to have a truly decent understanding of the material. It must also be highlighted that Nicky has a strong understanding of cultural differences and how students with different educational backgrounds learn best, which I believe makes him one of the top resources for international students (and not only) to leverage Nicky’s support and ensure smooth transition to a new educational environment. I would fervently recommend Nicky as a tutor / teacher to anyone in need.
Teddy
I had Nicky as a member of the teaching staff for a math class in the fall. He became my advisor for the final project and he was essential for my success. He helped me think more deeply about mathematical modeling and working with him on my final project was the best part of the class.
Sophia
For several years in high school, Nicky worked with me for my math and physics courses (trigonometry, Calculus BC, linear algebra, differential equations, AP Physics C, as well as using MatLab), and I quickly came to know that whatever the concept, whatever the question, Nicky would be able to help me to a point of confidence and mastery. His explanations were clear and step-by-step, starting with what I understood and building from there. He consistently made me feel at ease, in part simply because he's a really approachable, friendly, and calm person. His own enthusiasm for the subject matter--even when it was sometimes very introductory material--rubbed off on me, too; I would walk in stressed and confused and walk out yearning to learn more about the subject. Our sessions definitely contributed to my decision, now in college, to major in physics.

I have a BS in Physics and a Masters degree in Astrophysics, and I've been tutoring for 11 years. I was also a teaching assistant for astronomy classes for three years, so I've got lots of experience helping people with math and physics. I know that the best way to learn physics is by solving practice problems, and I help my students become proficient at that. I even create my own problems to target areas of weakness!

Allison is VERY sweet, patient and thorough! I really enjoyed working with her. I learned SO much in just one hour!! I was hesitant about taking the lessons as I've tried lessons at my local Michael's store but didn't get much out of it. One on one with Allison was the right decision. If you are just thinking about it - DO IT!!! You won't regret it. I'm looking forward to next week's lesson with Allison :)

"I can't say enough about Aalok. His wealth of tutoring experience is certainly a major advantage, however his dedication and work ethic was what impressed us the most. What started out as just a few tutoring sessions for physics evolved into a wonderful relationship, guiding my son through his SATs and ACTs. Unlike many tutors' rigid availability schedules, Aalok went out of his way to work with my son's demanding high school schedule. He established a sincere rapport with my son and continues to touch base with him even now that he's at college. I am happy to recommend Aalok -- he is an exceptional young man and an excellent tutor."
