Experienced teacher and Ph.D Candidate in a biological discipline. I instruct at the college level, and I also have experience working with middle and high school students. Biology feels challenging, but learning the concepts behind how life works is also fun and enlightening! I understand how nerve-wracking it is to take standardized tests, as I've taken the SATs, GRE Biology Subject Test, and PRAXIS Biology Subject Test. With a lot of hard work and preparation, I received high scores on all, including a recognition of excellence award for the PRAXIS Biology score. Let's work together on tackling test anxiety and overcoming content learning barriers in biology!

Over the years I’ve had many tutors, worked with many professors and teachers, and I have to say that Marie is by far in the top 5% of all educators that I’ve seemed guidance from. I’ve taken the GRE multiple times, yet was only a few points away from my required Verbal score. I saw the reviews that Marie had and decided that she would be the best person to help me achieve my goal and I was right. She worked with me to develop a study plan based on what worked best with my schedule rather than taking one size fits all approach to my learning. She took extra steps to send my daily assignments that were challenging and helped me grow. She took time to help me get to the root cause of why I wasn’t answering questions correctly by not just moving on to the next problem just because I got it correct. She really cares. We talked constantly and she was always there when I had a question day or night. I plan to apply her methods and all that I’ve learned from her while attending the university that I was recently accepted to! Thank you Marie! Anyone seeking a truly dedicated and inspiring tutor for GRE Verbal should definitely choose Marie. Simply the best!
Gabriel
First of all, Marie is a very pleasant person. Working with someone that is nice makes learning so much better. She immediately provided me with several new techniques for studying that will allow me to focus on the areas that I am struggling with. She broke information down to where it was easy for me to understand and reemphasized key points that she was teaching to ensure that I understood them. More importantly, she asked me if I understood what she was teaching me rather than assume that I comprehended everything immediately, which many instructors I've worked with do not tend to do. Lastly, she was also willing to adjust her schedule to help me get the study sessions in that I need. I'm glad that I am working with her to up my GRE score!

I completely understand the frustration one feels when they don't understand the content they are trying to learn. As a student myself, I have experienced this frustration time after time again. However, with perseverance and hard-work (as well as help from others) I have been able to have a great academic experience, which I am continuing at Cornell University. I hope to bring clarity to my students in a non-judgemental and proactive way that will help them in the future. I am always happy to answer questions!

I have been tutoring math for 11 years. I can break down problems step-by-step so they are much less intimidating! I focus on the thought process behind solving the problems, so students understand how to approach future questions rather than just learning one problem at a time.

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 was a Math Major at Boston University. I was a an instructor in differential equations. During my college career I tutored alll specializing in the 5 to 17 age.. Typically my students went from a D average to a B average after they had been tutored. My patience and positive attitude made it easier for the students to grasp the concepts and succeed in the classroom.

"My 3 daughters looked forward to Tutoring Nights with Colin!

I have 3 girls in High school (10th, 10th, and 9th) . they had been struggling in math since I can remember. I didn't think I could afford tutoring. They each had an 'F' in math.

I found Colin, and what a blessing! In just THREE short weeks Colin had my girls understanding HIS lessons, their CLASSROOM lessons and PASSING their exams! They brought their grades up too!

The best thing I can compare his tutoring to is: an adult teaching a kid to ride a bike...
He didn't expect them to just ride a bike. he took the proper steps and taught my girls about the bike parts, the way the bike functions, how they all work together, how to properly sit and pedal, and he even held them up until they understood it completely and eventually were able to ride the bike on their own.

Thank you Colin! for putting my girls back on track with math!"
